Anushka Sharma’s stunning Sabyasachi wedding lehenga. Everything we know of her look
After days -- nay, years-- of dreaming up what kind of gorgeous lehenga Anushka Sharma would marry in, we finally got to see (and fawn over) the actor’s princess-like bridal ensemble on Monday, at her fairytale-worthy wedding to cricketer Virat Kohli.
Find out all the details on Virushka’s buzzed-about wedding at Florence, Italy here, but in the meantime, let’s just focus on Anushka’s stunning bridal look. It was legit breathtaking and lived up to all the hype. Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee was the man behind it and he totally killed it!
Anushka’s pale pink royal-feeling lehenga with a voluminous A-line skirt was fairytale-esque with beautiful Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads. The beaming bride completed her standout look with bridal jewellery from Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection that was handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls. Truly stunning -- we can’t stop talking about it!
Here’s everything we know about Anushka’s entire playful, but polished wedding day look.
The bride wore a blush pink lehenga for the pheras. Keeping in mind the setting, Sabyasachi chose a pastel hue in place of a traditional red one for the ceremony. On his official Instagram account, the designer wrote that it took 67 karigars, 32 days to hand embroider the lehenga in silk floss, which bore motifs of exotic birds and butterflies.
To complement the pale pink lehenga, the bride wore traditional jewellery -- a mathapatti, layered necklaces and jhumkas in jadau, pearls and pink spinel.

Those lush Tuscan hydrangeas; there is something so ethereal about brides wearing fresh flowers in their hair.
The real drama is in the hair. The hair-do by celebrity hairstylist Gabriel Georgiou screams ‘hey, look at me!’
