Anushkha Sharma to Soha Ali Khan: 11 stunning Sabyasachi wedding lehengas to obsess over
When it comes to creating wedding lehengas coveted by Indian brides the world over, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee is pretty much the undisputed champ. Even actor Anushka Sharma couldn’t resist his signature opulence, grandeur, and femininity and chose him to design a heavily embellished lehenga and glittering jewellery for her wedding with cricketer Virat Kohli in Tuscany, Italy, on Monday.
Think about it: You can probably tick off at least five brides -- famous or not -- who’ve worn his designs on their big day and looked jaw-droppingly beautiful.
And while you might think of traditional, old-world charm when you think of Sabyasachi, the fact remains that he’s been a pretty admirable innovator in the wedding space in the last two decades, understanding that not all brides want the same thing. As such, he’s constantly pushing boundaries on the runway by showcasing memorable collections that stray from the norm -- monochrome magic and lush florals to deliciously extravagant and decadent embroidery in vintage burgundy or the palest blue.
Since he opened his first flagship store at Kolkata in 2009, Sabya has managed to parlay his bridal niche into a massive high fashion brand that includes ready-to-wear, accessories, jewellery lines and collaborations. But he’s still the man brides call when they want gorgeous, ornate, impeccably-made trademark Sabyasachi bridal lehengas -- featuring voluminous skirts, romantic and ethereal embellishments and dreamy dupattas -- that genuinely speak to their personal style.
To celebrate Anushka’s winning bridal style by the designer, we took a look back through Sabyasachi’s archives, and picked out our 11 favourite wedding lehengas ever. From celebrities in bold-as-hell red to real women in slightly left-of-center pink -- check ’em out now! You’ll want them even if you’re not getting married.
