Ringing in the wedding celebrations of Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja, Bollywood celebs turned up the tempo at Anil Kapoor's residence last evening during the mehendi function of the beautiful couple. If you have seen the splash of images on social media and wondering what's the deal with all that white, that's because the dress code for the event was 'shades of white'. So no wonder the stars picked trendsetting designs in the classic colour, and turned the event into a super stylish evening. At least most of the guests came dressed in white.
The bride-to-be Sonam Kapoor looked stunning in an ivory and gold Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga that had intricate chikankari detailing. Beau Anand Ahuja complemented her look with a stylish kurta-pajama and jacket designed by Raghavendra Rathore.
Bollywood celebrities who attended the mehendi function included Katrina Kaif, Karisma Kapoor, Rani Mukerji, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Swara Bhasker, Jacqueline Fernandez, Isabelle Kaif, Varun Dhawan, Karan Johar, Farah Khan, as well as designers Masaba Gupta, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, among others. Following the theme of the event to the T, each of the celebs made heads turn with their stylish whites.
