At Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s much-awaited wedding reception in Mumbai on Wednesday, the Padmaavat actor chose to go in a different direction as compared to her previous bridal looks. Deepika wore a gorgeous and understated ivory and gold ensemble with matching jewellery and Ranveer complimented the look with Rohit Bal couture in the same composition. Her subtle make-up and that forehead decked with vermillion was an interesting contrast.
When Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh announced their wedding recently, the expectations to at least virtually participate in the wedding were higher than compared to the guests who were hoping to get invited to the wedding. In a private ceremony, Deepika and Ranveer got married in a picturesque setting in Lake Como in Italy on November 14. There was a lot of desperation to get a glimpse of the much talked about couple and when the images finally surfaced on social media, we couldn’t keep calm and a crossfire of comments and evaluation began comparing their wedding to Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding and Anushka Sharma and Virat Kholi’s wedding.
If we look at the couple, Ranveer has always been a vibrant and easy going in contrast to Deepika’s reserved and poised demeanour. But as they say, opposites attract. Now, back to the duo’s appearance and how they looked together during and post the wedding. Deepika definitely looked beautiful in her Sabyasachi’s trousseau package; the ivory and gold ensemble by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla was a fresh take at bridal wear. The choice of apparels and jewellery looked like an extension of all her traditional looks that she sported in a series of magnum opuses over these years.
Post her Bengaluru reception, where she looked her classic best in the pure zari gold Kanjivaram silk sari complimented with pearls and emerald stone cut jewellery, hair stylist Gabriel Georgiou gave her the signature neat bun and we couldn’t help but notice that we have seen this before.
Deepika surprised us with a dramatic look on Saturday at the quirky Bollywood DJ party in Mumbai hosted by Ranveer’s sister Ritika Bhavnani for the couple. The newlywed actor went to the party channelling painter Frida Kahlo, one of the most recognisable faces in Latin culture. Deepika’s look at DJ night was perfect for the non-traditional bride, who dares to break the bridal mould with an ensemble that is outside the box.
We look forward to the new married couple’s next appearance hoping that there will be something new to talk about.
