The Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli wedding celebrations seemed to last forever, and we’ve seen some terrific fashion: From the actor-cricketer duo’s pale Sabyasachi Mukhejee outfits at their Italian nuptials on December 11 to their festive traditional ensembles at the Delhi reception on December 21.
But on Tuesday, A-listers – from the cricket and Bollywood fraternity – culminated at The St Regis, Mumbai, for the last major celebration of the celebrity wedding of year in absolute elegance. And while wedding fashion pros, such as Priyanka Chopra, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Kangana Ranaut and Rekha, pulled out all the stops and looked regal and breathtaking in saris, Anushka and Virat’s star-studded wedding reception was really the night of the unlikely fashion stars.
Kriti Sanon, Bhumi Pednekar and Diana Penty are few of Bollywood’s breakout stars, and not just when it comes to their performances – but when it comes to their style too. All three actors outdid themselves on Tuesday night, each choosing looks that were very much on-trend, but also reflected their own individual styles.
For Diana, it was classic meets edgy, as she wore a Falguni and Shane Peacock lehenga with embellishment and sequins. Bhumi, on the other hand found a softer touch with a dazzling white lehenga set. Lastly, Kriti went full-on red carpet glamour with a sheer-looking Manish Malhotra sari with dreamy pearls and threadwork details.
Then there was upcoming actor Sara Ali Khan, whose effervescence was intoxicating in a decidely feminine pistachio green lehenga skirt and blouse embellished in resham, beads and crystals from designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. It was absolutely fascinating to watch her establish her understated, flawless look.
While all the women stood out, the men also brought it. Filmmaker Karan Johar and actor Sidharth Malhotra certainly know their fashion. Each chose dapper fusion outfits that would take their places in the annals of men’s fashion: While Karan wore a bespoke monochrome sherwani, Sidharth was seen in a Prussian blue bandhgala.
Here are 18 memorable looks from Anushka-Virat’s wedding reception. (All Photos: Instagram)

2. Neither actor Katrina Kaif, nor designer Manish Malhotra are known for conservative fashion. So when the star and the designer come together, they achieve off-the-charts sex appeal. Just look at the scintillating embellished crop and powder blue skirt with cascading trail that Katrina wore.
3. Actor Priyanka Chopra stood out for her elegance, and owned the night in a golden Benarasi sari. It was the simplicity of her hair, make-up and jewellery that let her rich sari steal the show.
