Sara Ali Khan’s love for Indian wear, evident through her talked-about kurta sets, makes her stand out among her generation of stars. Whether she’s hopping on a flight, heading home from a vigorous workout or running errands in the city, the young actor frequently opts for comfortable kurtas in fun colours and prints. But when it comes to bigger occasions, like a star-studded wedding, Ali Khan doesn’t shy away from her glamorous side.
More often than any other designer, you’ll find Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla behind the star’s impactful looks. For Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s reception in Mumbai, she arrived alongside her brother Ibrahim Ali Khan, dressed in a pistachio green lehenga. The creation came with an embellished blouse, which was decked up with resham work and further accented with beads and crystals. To balance the look, she went minimal with her jewellery and let the lehenga take centre stage. One ensemble that proves the actor’s love for old-world charm was the gold and orange lehenga she wore to Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding back in March 2018. Another piece by the duo, it came with heavy embroidery on the blouse that gave an illusion of layered gold necklaces.
Meanwhile, Khan also favours classic drapes equally. For Abu Jani’s niece Saudamini Mattu’s reception, she made an impactful entrance in an all-white sari. The drape featured a metallic geometric pattern in gold and silver, which was amplifies by the high-shine mirror worked blouse that she paired it with. She completed her look with an edgy and statement-making disco ball sling bag. Skipping her go-to neutral palette, Sara Ali Khan went all out with a vibrant chiffon sari in red for Dinesh Vijan’s wedding in 2018. Ditching the traditional style, her sari was half draped over a champagne-toned churidar instead.
But this is not to say that Sara Ali Khan doesn’t experiment with unconventional silhouettes at weddings. She attended Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s reception in a sheer body-hugging lace gown. The floor-grazing number featured gold threadwork and hints of colours in the floral motifs. Yet another time she gave us a red-carpet-ready look was when she wore a fringed mini dress at Deepika and Ranveer’s reception. The show-stopping number that did complete justice to her toned figure came encrusted with sequins, pearls and crystals. All the bridesmaids out there looking for a stand-out cocktail piece to dance the night away, bookmark a dress like the star’s now.
