Athiya Shetty’s exquisite Chikankari lehenga and antique jewels
On Sunday evening, Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul shared pictures of their Mehendi ceremony. For the occasion, Athiya chose a custom-made Anjul Bhandari off-white pure georgette lehenga set, which comes with intricate details – making it a perfect look for day-wedding festivities. The actor wore a 24-times Chikankari lehenga set featuring a blouse, dupatta and lehenga skirt. The handwoven heirloom piece comes decked in baby pearls, sequins, and over 39,000 Swarovski crystals. The designer shared the details on their Instagram page with the caption, “Love and only love for our gorgeous Bride @athiyashetty.” Check out the pictures below.
Athiya wore the lehenga by draping her heavily embellished dupatta like a cape jacket. She accessorized the ensemble with ornate gold and Polki bracelets, a huge diamond ring, a gorgeous mang tika, and gorgeous antique earrings from her Nani’s collection. The statement earrings featured a sleek chain, multi-colored beads, and a moon-inspired design.
In the end, Athiya chose a sleek hairdo with curled ends, subtle eye shadow, sleek eyeliner, heavy mascara on the lashes, blushed pink glowing skin, pink lip shade, darkened brows, and light contouring to round off the glam picks.
Meanwhile, KL Rahul complemented his bride in a mint green heavily embroidered kurta pajama set featuring a full-sleeve kurta, a cut-sleeve Nehru jacket and matching pajamas. Side-parted sleek hairdo and trimmed beard completed his Mehendi look.
