Beauty & Fashion Lessons To Learn From Celeb Brides

1. Masaba Gupta

In an intimate court marriage ceremony, multi-hyphenate Masaba Gupta married her actor beau Satyadeep Misra, whom she met on the sets of her eponymous Netflix show Masaba Masaba. With her next of kin and friends like family in attendance, Masaba's nuptials were an all-heart affair. And when the photos hit social media, we were floored by the designer's ethereal ensemble! Here are a few things we believe brides should take note of.

For her intimate wedding, Masaba donned the 'Paan-Patti' lehenga- a unique raw silk lehenga in a 'barfi pink' hue with gold embroidery from her bridal collection! She paired this with a lime green dupatta with a wallflower print on it, which looked supremely feminine and beautiful. The dupatta also had small organza booties all across with a fully sequinned border. The designer went in for a double dupatta along with an extra veil attached to the blouse. The blouse of her lehenga was a basic bustier with minimal embroidery on it. The most beautiful part of the lehenga is the customised border that consists of the palm, which is the first motif from the House of Masaba, along with a bird embellished on it.

Sleek & Clean Braid

One of the best things about Masaba Gupta's makeup and hair was her clean and sleek low braid. This was a new look for her since she has voluminous curls which she usually sports. The designer opted to keep the look minimal and slicked her hair back without any stray baby hairs running amuck.

Nude, Dewy Makeup

Another thing to learn from the designer's ensemble was her simple yet stunning makeup. Masaba went with nude makeup, with khol lined eyes, nude lips with brown lip liner along with bronzed cheeks and a dewy highlighter that made her glow like a goddess!

2. Kiara Advani

When actors, Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra tied the knot at Suryagarh Palace in Jaisalmer a few days ago, let's just say the internet went beserk! Our feeds were awash with their first few wedding images and the couple seems to have aced day wedding tailoring as well as beauty choices. In classic Bollywood fashion, the couple broke the news on their respective Instagrams with matching captions.  Honestly, it’s the kind of stuff fairytales are made of: two talented Bollywood actors meet while making their way to the top, sparks fly, and a true 21st-century romance unfolds! Ever since the news of the couple getting married broke out, fans and followers have been buzzing with excitement, especially about the starlet's beautiful bridal ensemble.

For her wedding, Kiara Advani opted for an empress rose Manish Malhotra lehenga, intricately embroidered with detailing of Roman architecture, embellished with sequins and Real Swarovski crystals for that gave it the designer's signature sparkle. 

Clean Girl Nails 

Accentuating her nails with a nude pink polish, Kiara picked a neutral manicure to complement her soft rose hued chooda and kaleeras. Clean girl nails is officially the trend of 2023 that's been making waves on runways and Instagram and for good reason. It's all about keeping your nails natural, just looking better, with nail paint shades that aren't that different from the nail's actual tint!

Skin Forward Beauty With Muted Rosy Makeup

Of course, when we saw Kiara's bridal ensemble, our eyes immediately landed on her flawless face. The secret behind this minimalistic glamour is the skin-forward approach that's all about natural beauty. Rooted in the 'skinimalism' trend, the actress sported a radiant glow which was a result of an amazing and strict pre-wedding skincare routine. Furthermore, to complement her empress rose lehenga, Kiara Advani wore a muted rosy makeup look which included a flawless base topped off with a wash of blush, a little bit of eyeshadow and nude lips. Brushed-up brows and mascara lad lashes accentuate her features sans overdoing it.

Not only was it a fuss-free look, but the hairdo added symmetry to her face, especially with her centre parting that was decorated with a dainty maang tika. 

Love Story Kaleeras

Kiara donned love story kaleeras designed by the amazing Mrinalini Chandra. The kaleeras were designed with gorgeous stars, moon and butterflies hanging with the couple's initials in the mix. Adding glory to the kaleeras was a thoughtful dedication to a beloved pet, a favourite travel destination and a little love and mischief. Furthermore, the jewellery designer incorporated domes to the kaleeras as per the bride's instructions, a callback to the couple's love for domed architecture.

As the first celebrity wedding of the year, we were floored by the gorgeous and loving photos of Athiya Shetty and KL Rahul.

Here are certain beauty and fashion lessons you'll definitely love from her!

Subtle Pink Chikankari Lehenga

While most bridal lehengas are made of raw silk and organza, Athiya's regal subtle pink Anamika Khanna lehenga was a wonderous mix of chikankari on silk with zardozi and jaali work. The subtle pink lehenga also features metallic colours, with a slightly burnt and old-world look. Her veil and dupatta were made of silk organza and the entire ensemble took almost 10,000 man-hours to make! Her intricated full-sleeve blouse added to the elegance of the outfit.

Yet again wowing us, Athiya donned these dainty kaleeras designed by Mrinalini Chandra. Named the 'Eternity Vows Kaleeras', the trinkets were a work of art, handcrafted by the veteran karigars of Jaipur and Lucknow. The Saptpadi wedding vows were hand etched in Sanskrit on sun motifs, immortalising them with over 50 tiny handcrafted sunflowers added to them.

Statement Kaleeras

If you are a bride-to-be who swears by the mantra of ‘It's all in the details’, then you obviously can’t take your 'kaleeras' for granted. Switching from traditional and basic kaleeras, Hansika picked an unconventional kaleera that incorporated peacock motifs and domes with tassels. 

Floral Haldi Outfit

For her haldi, Hansika matched the beautiful, vibrant decor of sunflowers with a dainty white sharara set that featured yellow flowers. A soft, youthful visage and floral jewellery in hues matching her outfit complemented her bridal glow. Honestly, this is a step further than wearing white on your haldi.
