All the times Bollywood celebrities stepped out in Sabyasachi lehengas
Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s signature aesthetic is hard to be defined. His unique take on couture has fans all across the world. Whether it’s the jaw-dropping cut of a blouse or the use of rich prints embellished with intricate embroidery, he has mastered it all. In 2016, the designer decided to forgo the runway format to reveal his entire couture collection on Instagram, so it comes as no surprise that there is a separate Instagram page dedicated only to the brides he has dressed. Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone’s bridal Sabyasachi lehengas have already gone down in Instagram history, but Bollywood’s best dressed turn to the designer for all major occasions round the year—whether they’re stepping out for promotional events or attending weddings as a guest.
Alia Bhatt has given brightly coloured lehengas from Sabyasachi’s line-up her vote of approval on two occasions. The 26-year-old actor attended Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand Ahuja’s reception in Mumbai in a statement-making neon green lehenga, and chose an embroidered lemon yellow number from his spring/summer 2019 collection for Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s post-wedding celebrations earlier this year. Sara Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif showcased two different ways to wear a black floral lehengas with Sabyasachi’s designs—Khan’s cocktail version came with a sequinned black blouse and a tulle skirt embroidered with appliqué flowers, while Kaif’s printed piece highlighted maximal blooms on an organza skirt. Karisma Kapoor also wore a printed lehenga set by Sabyasachi for Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s wedding ceremony, comprising a green blouse and an ivory skirt with splashes of pink and orange flowers. Most recently, Anushka Sharma got all the attention at Anil Kapoor’s Diwali bash for her multi-coloured set from Sabyasachi’s winter/bridal 2019 collection, ‘Charbagh’—the skirt featured colour-blocked panels in vibrant shades of orange, purple and even ice blue, and was paired with a deep V-neck blouse with delicate floral threadwork.
