I never used to pay attention to the cliche, 'happy brides are the prettiest'. But when I saw Sonam's first picture, I found myself resonating with this thought. I was psyched to see photos from her intimate mehendi function at home yesterday - she really was ONE HAPPY BRIDE! She was seen beaming in all her photos, smiling from ear to ear. And of course, a special mention to that bridal glow.
Let's dive straight into her look.
Sonam Di Mehendi: Pastel Lehenga
Sonam looked elegant in a peach and lavender Anuradha Vakil lehenga, that was done up with zardozi and gottapatti embroidery. Known for her intricate embroidery, Sonam Kapoor has worn Anuradha's pieces on many occasions including Mira and Shahid Kapoor's reception. We thought this pastel pick made for the perfect summer mehendi outfit.
All Smiles And Glowing Skin
But the part that stood out to me the most was her million-watt smile that complemented her beautiful, clear skin. Just like Anushka, Sonam too was found making the most of natural makeup. With a hint of lipstick and a swipe of highlighter on her nose and cheeks, Sonam's smile is infectious!

Not just her makeup, Sonam kept her hair fuss-free with a simple blow dry. With a centre parting, she kept her strands pinned away from her face which I found to be a practical tip for brides-to-be. Sleek, straight and elegant!
The one thing that stood out from Sonam's mehendi look was her bold brows. Make sure you embrace your natural arch when waxing or threading your brows. Fill them in with a brow pencil and use a brow gel to keep them in place.
