To witness it first-hand and bring back forgotten details, this #FlashbackFriday, we delve a bit further into Kareena Kapoor Khan’s unforgettable Indian wear look in the film.
Here’s reading on to see the complete details of the actress’s exhilarating on-screen outfit in the movie.
An array of fashion-forward outfits made their way on the screen, seen in the multiple ceremonies, vacations and day-to-day life. One that stood out, however, was Kareena Kapoor Khan’s wedding look as seen in the final few scenes, a distinctive one that reflected a fresh perspective with respect to bridal fashion.
The yellow vintage lehenga was from designer duo Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s atelier and incorporated chikan embroidery from the designers’ archives. And though it was perceived to be new-age, the Indian wear look was one that the duo had worked on 25 years ago! Post a couple of changes in the overall piece—think the blouse and details—came to us the final bridal look as seen in the film.
The straight cut lehenga featuring heavily embroidered jaals did not undergo changes and was rounded off with an off-the-shoulder blouse incorporating beaded tassels and similar intricate motifs. With the dupatta kept back to emulate a train, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s bridal look in Veere Di Wedding made certain that the focus was kept on her lehenga.
Eye makeup on the forefront of her beauty look and flower wreaths in the hair, the rest of the look veered towards subtle, with a red bindi on the forehead completing Kareena Kapoor Khan’s refreshing wedding look in the movie.
Bridal jewellery tends to be on the heavier side in a wedding look, often eclipsing the outfit but the film had a fresh take on that too. A string of delicate pearls made up Kareena Kapoor Khan’s waist-up look in terms of jewellery, with no earrings or other traditional pieces included. Customised beaded hathphools, gold bangles and rings concluded the bride’s bejewelled details. Striking and fuss-free at the same time, it sure served inspiration for would-be brides who wouldn’t wish to compromise on comfort.
Considering that low-key, intimate weddings are the preferred kind in the current scenario, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s wedding look from Veere Di Wedding provides ample takeaways should you be looking for something that fits. From makeup and jewellery to an overall distinctive look, elements derived from the vintage Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla outfit and accompanying accessories are bound to be a hit.
