While everyone drooled over Bollywood “it” couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor the past week, it was the groom’s sister Soha Ali Khan who won our “Best Dressed at Saif + Kareena’s Wedding” Award.


Soha Ali Khan in Anamika Khanna

While some fashion commentators found this ensemble too simple for a sangeet party, we LOVED the Anamika Khanna outfit that Soha Ali Khan wore. Simplicity and fine fabrics often eclipses the standard gold embroidered fare that most guests wear to weddings. For another wedding event, Soha chose to wear a cream and gold lengha (below right) with an unadorned lengha paired with a delicately embroidered dupatta and choli top. We like.

What Kareena Wore

Outfitted exclusively by Manish Malhotra (except for her wedding outfit, above left, which was her mother-in-law’s wedding gharara), Kareena looked beautiful at several wedding-related events. We can’t say any of her outfits were outstanding – it was standard, run-of-the-mill Manish Malhotra work, with a lot of gold embroidery. Her wedding gharara, restored by Ritu Kumar, was most fitting for the royal bride (Saif Ali Khan descends from a semi-royal/nawabi family). What can we say, we’re suckers for vintage.

Kareena looks radiant, but we would have paired her deep red lengha (love the colour) and the pink lengha with a different necklace or no necklace at all.

Congrats to India’s new royal couple.
