Staying true to her Nawaabi roots, Soha chose to opt for a colour that reflects royalty like nothing else; gold! She trusted none other than Sabyasachi with her lehenga and chose a design from his ‘Opium’ collection. The lehenga was a stunning gold dusted work of art to which Sharmila Tagore insisted adding an element of ‘kesariya orange’. The lehenga looked stunning and Soha looked like a million bucks.

While most of Kareena Kapoor’s wedding looks weren’t revealed to the media, her donning Sharmila Tagore’s orange sharara (the traditional Pataudi wedding heirloom sharara) from her mother-in-law’s wedding in 1969 made the news!
