Celebrity Style Files - Wedding Edition | Virushka Reception

After a fairy tale wedding in Italy, newly wed couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma hosted a high profile reception at the Taj Diplomatic Enclave in Delhi last night. Among the key attendees were Prime Minister Narendra Modi, cricketers Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan, Gautam Gambhir among others. The reception was also attended by close friends and family of the duo. Highlight of the evening included an energetic performance by legendary Punjabi singer - Gurdas Mann.

While the guest list grabbed attention, fans of the power couple were naturally excited to see their respective looks for the occasion. Needless to say, they did not disappoint at all! Kohli and Sharma elegantly walked out of the reception venue, and posed for the media at a special area created for the latter. Once again, the bride and groom went for a top to toe look designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, which clearly focused on reviving (and promoting) Indian handloom. While Sharma looked stunning in a traditional red Benarasi saree, Kohli went for a classic black textured silk signature bandhgala. Their respective outfits and the choice of colour complimented the duo very well. 

Kohli chose a white silk kurta with hand woven brocade churidaar to go with his bandhgala. House buttons in 18k gold added the perfect touch of blind to the overall look. He teamed it with a beautiful hand embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from the designer's 'Kashmir Revival' project. A pair of traditional mojris (once again, from the designer's accessory line) completed the look.

Sharma looked every inch a glowing bride, as she posed for the shutterbugs with her husband in tow, minutes before the main reception. According to Sabyasachi, Sharma wanted to wear a traditional red outfit for her reception, and he picked 'the one' from the by-lanes of Peeli Kothi in Benaras. Nothing better than a good ol' beautiful Benarasi saree, complete with traditional bangles, a neatly tied up bun, fresh mogra gajras, heavily kohled eyes and sindoor. Of course, we couldn't take our eyes off the heavy heritage uncut diamond choker, which was paired perfectly with jhumkas, both from Sabyasachi's bridal jewellery collection. The hair and make up was perfect, and complimented the overall 'desi' look of the bride very well. Sharma gave hundreds of brides-to be some serious wedding outfit goals with this gorgeous look! And well, the ace designer believes, copies of this look will flood the market very soon. We couldn't agree more!

We are excited to see their next set of looks, especially at the Mumbai reception, which is scheduled on December 26. But so far, which look did you like the most? The dreamy outfits at Virushka Wedding or the traditional look at Delhi reception?
