Manish Malhotra just unveiled his Bridal Couture 23/24 collection and it turned out to be every bit magical. Alia Bhatt played showstopper for the designer and we finally got a glimpse of how she would’ve looked as a Manish Malhotra bride! The actress was grace personified as she walked the ramp in a bespoke lehenga and we couldn’t help but notice some breathtaking details that are bound to start major trends! Scroll down
The Statement Blouse
Most brides like to take the traditional route with their wedding wear. However, boring blouses are just not it these days and Alia’s itsy-bitsy grey blouse would be the perfect addition to the 2023 bridal moodboard. It’s fresh, fab, and so much fun!
The Pearl Detailing
It seems like pearl core is about to be a major trend when in bridal wear. While usually bridal lehengas are decked with zari, zardozi and cutdana-work, Alia’s lehenga featured bespoke pearl detailing. The border of her dupatta and the sleeves on her blouse were adorned with pearls and it looked every bit stunning.
The Huge Flower Motifs
The sheer fairytale-like dupatta was decked with huge silver floral motifs that were a rather unique touch. We love how Manish Malhotra managed to incorporate oversized motifs into the ensemble without making it look tacky. Now, that takes some serious talent!
The Larger Than Life Lehenga!
While most bridal lehengas are tiered and come with can-can, Alia’s lehenga was two-tiered and looked larger than life! It exuded a very ball gown-like vibe while ensuring Alia was the centre of attention. As a bride, if you want to go big, opt for a two-tiered lehenga this season!
The Unique Colour
These days we see brides opting for all sorts of colours like blue, white, yellow, etc. But we haven’t really seen a bridal ensemble in grey as most steer clear of what’s considered to be a “dull” hue. Guess what? Alia’s lehenga came in a subtle grey shade and looked every bit elegant. If you’re a bride who wants to be one in a million, we suggest you choose grey for your D-day!
Alia Bhatt’s Manish Malhotra lehenga is something all women should bookmark for future reference!
