Malaika Arora’s icy blue lehenga will be the talk of your mid-pandemic wedding reception

All the weddings that were due from March up until now are now starting to resurface. From Rana Daggubati and Miheeka Bajaj’s wedding to the wedding of many more people – all those weddings which were due are now beginning to happen. Of course the scale is not as grand, but what we have noticed is that brides and even families of the bride and groom aren’t shying away from going all the way when it comes to wedding outfits. Even though the weddings have limited people, some are even taking place at homes, the outfits are as elaborate as they used to be, under what we call ‘normal’ circumstances. This pandemic may restrict gatherings, but it shall not dampen sartorial sensibilities at great Indian weddings.

In times like these, Malaika Arora is giving us major wedding wardrobe goals. Recently, on the sets of India’s Best Dancer, the actor was spotted in an icy blue Manish Malhotra lehenga from his latest collection, Taban (styled by Maneka Harisinghani). Take it from us, the pastel blue lehenga with sequins work all over is what you need for your mid-pandemic wedding reception. It may not be the obvious colour choice for your wedding day, but makes for a stunning night time lehenga. If not at your reception, you can definitely wear it at your engagement party.

Malaika Arora wore diamonds and emeralds with her lehenga

Arora kept the rest of her look pretty simple. Giving the neck-piece a miss, she opted for subtle, understated jewellery – a small maang tika, bangles and rings in diamonds and emeralds from Renu Oberoi’s luxury collection. A centre parting, minimal makeup and tons of confidence completed Malaika Arora’s look for the night! Find similar lehengas below:

#BBSeenScene: Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl Sharan Sharma’s (@sharansharma) #GunjanSaxena rests a lot on the relationship between Janhvi Kapoor’s (@janhvikapoor) Gunjan and Pankaj Tripathi’s (@pankajtripathi) Anup Saxena (Papa). Their relationship is the driving force of the film and it is their chemistry that one really needs to look out for. It’s perhaps the writing of these characters and how the relationship has been written which makes it what it is. In a very significant scene in the film, we see Gunjan heart broken by gender politics at work and has hence returned home. She attends her best friend’s wedding and tells her father that it may be a good time to get married, settle down. Devastated, her father takes her to the kitchen and asks her to make parathas. She doesn’t know how to. He then tells her how choosing to marry has made all the effort both of them put in to make her a pilot futile. Gunjan too doesn’t want to get married, but she’s conditioned and made to believe by the world outside of her that home is the place for women. They aren’t needed at the workplace – an office or the Indian Air Force. The dialogues in this scene are simple but thought provoking. The expressions by both the actors are top-notch too. But the brilliance of this scene lies in its setting. This conversation takes place in the kitchen – a supposed area of female expertise. This is a woman’s office – that’s what this scene tells us. And also that if a woman can run a house, she can use a rifle as well as any other man. Words @kunsahuja
