Explosive as it might be for her on the professional front right now, it has been festive max at Kangana Ranaut's Himachal home all this while. Just last month her cousin Karan got married thus giving the Ranaut family a chance to soak in the festivities and play dress-up. And now after Karan, Kangana's younger brother Akshat tied the knot earlier today. The pictures from the destination weddings are now out and as grand as the celebrations look, it is Kangana's gorgeous outfits that we are really digging at the moment.
With her multi-colored lehenga from the wedding ceremony and gold-beige poshak from the mehendi function, Kangana has definitely killed it with her style and has given us two polar opposite but equally interesting sister-of the groom (or bride) outfits. Here's everything that we love about the two looks:
For her brother's Udaipur wedding, Kangana gave us a new take on day wedding colour palette by going all out on solid, vibrant hues. That said, she very well stayed committed to her passion for Indian crafts and got her outfit designed by handloom connoisseur Anuradha Vakil. Featuring an azure blue bandhani skirt, a purple blouse, and a panelled purple and emerald dupatta, the lehenga is sure to remind you of a peacock dancing with all its feathers unfurled in full glory.
The Gujarati bandhani craft is Vakil's signature specialty and a dying art that she has been fighting to revive. Kangana's lehenga took almost 14 months to be finished and everything from the confluence of the jewel hues to the marodi and sitara work looks absolutely glorious.
Kangana completed the look with custom made jewellery from Sabyasachi and as gorgeous as every single detail of her intricately done jewel set happens to be, it is her OTT maangtikka that we have got our eyes on!
Also, notice the Freida Kahlo hair? So Kangana! We especially love how she decided to keep the face minimal with bold eyes and nude lips. This is how you ace a vibrant lehenga peeps! Here's how you can recreate the beauty look:
Designed by Good Earth's Namrata Rathi, the beige-gold custom outfit that Kangana wore for her brother's mehendi certainly deserves more than a fleeting glance, such are its fine details. Both the statement choli and the skirt's silhouette remind us of traditional Rajasthani poshak. However, the outfit does have a unique appeal to it, the plunging neckline of Kangana's choli to the interesting back that makes it like a blouse from behind, to begin with. The choli in a traditional poshak consists of two separate pieces including a blouse and a top layer that goes over it. This is almost what a poshak would look like if you let go of the inner blouse and add sleeves to the top choli instead:
The satin fabric and gota patti accents again remind us of the poshak and we really love how an organza dupatta has been incorporated to break the monotony from the head to toe satin. Also, love how poetically the gold work and the paneled details merge with the glossy beige. Here's a look that's understated, bold, and beautiful, all in one go.
Lastly, we have to give it to Kangana for her commitment to traditional crafts and sustainable fashion. Rest assured, when it comes to Indian handlooms, few can bet Kangana and the pride with which she wears them. We really can't wait to recreate these looks in the next ghar ki shaadi. How about you?
