Actor (and newlywed) Sonam Kapoor is the cover star for UK-based Khush Wedding Magazine’s fifth anniversary issue. In case you missed it (how?!), Sonam tied the knot with long-time boyfriend Anand Ahuja in a lavish wedding at Mumbai in May. Shot by photographer Michael Sheller, Sonam is decked out in the most luxurious lace and embellished pieces by designer Shehla Khan in the photo shoot. It’s bridal dressing at its most aspirational, and we’re feeling very inspired.
On the cover, Sonam flaunts an enviable bridal glow, a fresh-faced make-up look — featuring purple lids, a peachy pink lip, and a bronze blush — and side-swept hair. Sonam wears an ethereal silver hand-painted lehenga adorned with sequins and thread embroidery appliqué that scream romantic bride. Sonam paired it with a lace embroidered blouse and a floral sequins dupatta, and topped off with a touch of bling via a statement ruby pink choker necklace from Sandook Gems. Talk about jaw-dropping.
For the magazine spread, Sonam wore some more stunning bridal looks. Even if you’re not in the market for a bridal trousseau, you’ll enjoy the way Sonam so effortlessly nails every style of dress. Saree? Stunning. Lehenga? Flawless.
