Celebrity Style File | Virushka Reception (Red Carpet - Mumbai)

The much awaited Mumbai reception hosted by newly wed couple - Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, finally unfolded last night. After a fairy tale wedding in Italy and a high profile Delhi reception, the couple invited friends and members of the film fraternity for a special evening, organised at The St Regis (Lower Parel). Apart from the families and close friends, there were a host of renowned guests, ranging from Kohli's team mates from the Indian cricket team to Sharma's co-stars and friends from Bollywood. As usual, the paparazzi went berserk, as they snapped several a-listers walked the specially created red carpet and photo-op area. Among the key attendees were Sharma's debut film co-star Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and family, M.S Dhoni and family, Ranbir Kapoor among others. Highlight of the evening included Khan dubbing a popular film dialogue for Kohli, and the couple's incredible dance on Punjabi numbers. 

However, apart from the usual insider stories (which isn't our domain), what stood out were the outfits picked by the couple, as well as the attendees. Here's a round up of some top looks sported by Bollywood celebrities at the event.

The Couple - Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma

Once again, the bride picked a Sabyasachi outfit for the event. According to the designer, Anushka wanted an old world glam look. The smokey grey lehanga was crafted with hand beaten thread, texture sequins and cut organza flowers on an embroidered tulle base.  Renowned craftsmen from Lucknow rendered the dupatta, which was clinched on the wait with Sabyasachi's popular 'Bengal Tiger' belt. We loved how she opted for soft tousled waves and kept her make up minimal, with just lightly flushed cheeks, soft smokey eyes and a rose nude lipstick. The diamonds around her neck shone bright, as hand crafted necklace and pair of earrings (with rose cut diamonds, solitaires and briolettes) added a special touch to her glam look.

The groom went for a navy velvet bandhgala, a classic look by Raghavendra Rathore. White pants, brown shoes and a pink shirt completed his look for the dazzling do.

Shah Rukh Khan

Harry made quite a stylish entry at Sejal's wedding reception (Sorry, but we couldn't help say this). King Khan picked a formal outfit for the event. A classy three piece black suit, with printed pocket square and floral lapel pin, completed his look.


The actress dazzled in a stunning pashmina and velvet saree in black and blue, with Tilla Kashmir Zari. The outfit had some beautiful intricate and unique artwork, and Sridevi looked every inch a diva. She chose to accessorise the look with a heavy gold necklace and a pair of earrings.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra made a quick entry at the reception, hours after delivering an inspirational speech at the Penguin Annual Lecture in Delhi. The global girl went all traditional and picked a Gold Banarasi Weave Saree, with a green blouse, both from her own collection. Temple style jewellery, bindi, soft waves and bold lips completed her look.

Ranbir Kapoor

RK kept it cool and classy in a formal outfit for the do. Sharma's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil co-star picked an elegant checkered Canali suit for the occasion. A matching Hugo Boss neck tie, with a pair of black formal shoes by O'Keeffe.

Katrina Kaif

Fresh from the success of 'Tiger Zinda Hai', where the actress earned accolades for her fierce avatar, Katrina made a stylish appearance with her sister - Isabelle, in tow. Her powder blue cascading trailer skirt and embellished crop top by designer Manish Malhotra was certainly one of our favourites. She kept it simple with minimal make up and soft tousled waves.

Varun Dhawan

It's been a good year for the actor, and we couldn't help but notice the glow on his face. Varun walked the red carpet, looking dapper in a three piece navy blue suit and polka dotted pocket square. A pink necktie added the perfect pop of colour to his stylish outfit.

Kangana Ranaut

The feisty actress walked the red carpet like a 'Queen'. She picked an ivory gold Kanjeevaram saree from designer Sabyasachi's Vasanthalaxmi collection, along with a textured silk blouse. Classic uncut diamond, emerald and pearl jewellery crafted in 22k gold (all from the Sabyasachi jewellery collection), along with fresh flowers wrapped around a vintage bun, soft make up and juttis by NeedleDust added the perfect 'royal' touch to her overall look.

Sidharth Malhotra

For someone who always makes a dapper entry, Sid is never the one to disappoint. The 'gentleman' Sidharth chose a classic royal blue bandhgala by designer Manish Malhotra, with ivory floral thread work on the sleeves and aged velvet mandarin collar, paired with classic black shoes by Dune London.


The diva made an entry, looking her stylish best as always. Rekha's traditional look is always hard to miss, and for the much talked about reception, she chose a gold and purple saree, paired with a pink blouse and golden potli bag. She heavily accessorised the look with layered necklaces and studded earrings. Bright, bold lips, flushed cheeks and a sleek bun with neatly placed fresh gajras rounded her look.

Madhuri Dixit Nene

The 'Dhak Dhak' girl made a glamorous entry in a Tarun Tahiliani emerald green and gold zardozi border saree, paired with a hand embroidered tulle blouse. She picked a pair of jhumkas to accessorise her look. To finish the look, she opted for bright lips and a neat up do wrapped with fresh flowers.
