Highlights from Bollywood's Big Fat Indian Wedding - Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay

If there is one thing that Indians love, it is Bollywood. A close second might in fact be grand weddings. And if you bring the two together for a Big Fat Indian Wedding Bollywood style, it's usually the perfect setting for magic.

Neil Nitin Mukesh is the third generation from a film family and at the wedding, star power was on full display. The bride looked absolutely gorgeous and the couple seemed to be absolutely loving every moment of their grand celebration

The wedding took place in Udaipur ( including at the Radisson Blu ( The pictures look absolutely amazing and it'll be fairly easy to assume that it was an extravagant and lavish affair.

The groom broke into tears at the wedding while speaking of his bride and said "Rukmini is just what we had dreamt for… She is just every bit of what we had dreamt for Neil. I hope they have a very happy life. I do want to see many grandchildren."

Both the bride and groom look dressed up in all their finery, but what has impressed us is the simplicity of their outfits and their nod to the traditional. A lot of brides have experimented in their looks for the big day by including styles that are very modern or different, but Rukmani kept it very traditional. Right from her lehenga and jewellery to her traditional style maang-tikka, it all came together beautifully.

And the actual ceremony seems to be full of pomp and style. As you would expect of an Indian wedding, there are plenty of events each with a different theme and style. Fireworks and flowers were on extravagant display throughout and Rajasthan provided the perfect backdrop for the royal wedding.


Pictures tell a thousand words and if these pictures are anything to go by, we can safely say that we are super jealous of the people that did get to attend this extravagant and gorgeous Indian wedding.

Favourite Bollywood Celebrity Lehengas from 2016

A lot of bollywood celebs got married in 2016 and of course as usual, the weddings were grand affairs that included famous folks from all walks of life. Regular readers of the blog are going to remember that I absolutely love celeb weddings and everything associated with them - there is so much glamour that it's hard not to be impressed.

These are the brides that I really liked from 2016. Some more pictures for each of them below and some thoughts around why I really liked their outfits.

Bipasha Basu - the Bride in Traditional Red
Bipasha looked absolutely stunning in a very traditional style of lehenga. She also put on a massive choker necklace to complete her traditional look. The look is absolutely stunning, but I think she could have gone easy on the necklace because that choker is likely to have been over 3 kgs!

She looked rather lovely, but I think the looks was a little subtle for my taste. Since she was the bride, I expected a little more glam and colour - but instead she selected a neutral tone saree. Elegant, but not quite for me.

Lisa Haydon
Lisa Haydon looks stunning no matter what she wears. Her wedding outfit in white made her a vision to behold. She looked absolutely amazing and so elegant. I want to steal her entire look.

The Rangeela star looked stunning as ever - and she still looks so so so young. Her outfit was my favourite - a very traditional style lehenga that featured beautiful details. There is very little more that a girl can ask for, really.

Favourite Recent Looks from Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor is usually on trend and stylishly dressed. So I thought I would pick out some styles from the actress that are uber stylish and look so good!

This is from one of her recent appearances for an event in Calcutta (Kolkata). She is wearing a very stylish 2 piece outfit. The top is a tunic that also has a cape style top part and the bottoms are either a skirt of relaxed fitted pants.

The embroidery on the cape is very trademark of the designer - in golden zardosi on a black base fabric. Does the mommy to be not look stunning?

At another recent appearance, Kareena wore a very stylish long olive coloured Tunic. Why do I like this? because it is simple and she kept the look so stylish. She just added a necklace and a clutch to complete the look. I am not sure of the designer.

I am starting to appreciate maternity fashion a little more, and am thinking that it can be done very stylishly if one looks at the inspirations from Kareena. I can honestly say, rock on girl!

Best dressed Bollywood celebrities to Follow on Social Media

We are all fascinated by Bollywood celebrities and what they wear. They are setting us goals and also give us guidance on the styles that are the most fashionable. 

With so many stars, how can you keep up with the most stylish? Sure you are following all of them on Instagram and Twitter, but who should you be paying attention to? Let us help you on that front! Our list includes stars who we think are great and those who are good, but we don't think they are relevant for regular folks like us.

Sonam Kapoor
We love her style and she often wears very edgy things. She is seen on important events both locally and internationally wearing a lot of Indian designers. She also wears a lot of international designers like Ralph and Russo etc.

While we love her style, most of the pieces she wears seem to be custom made for her or otherwise are from very expensive collections. This is great if you have plenty moolah to spend, but not on a budget. 

We recommend following her for inspiration and style direction, but not to identify brands worth buying.

Pernia Qureshi
This "Bollywood actress" is also a fashion designer. She has very good taste and you can also see that on her website Perniaspopupshop. 

While she is also seen in expensive designer clothes all the time, she also wears younger and more affordable designers sometimes. 

We say that you should follow her.

Alia Bhatt
Alia has not traditionally been considered a fashion icon as such, but she is increasingly asserting her style quotient through magazine cover features, editorial features and the like.

She has a quirky and fun style that is often cute and stylish. Mind you, the girl can also bring on the oomph when she wants to impress.

A must follow in our opinion !

Sunny Leone
This Bollywood starlet is usually in the news for the wrong reason. She used to be a porn-star, is no longer, get over it.

This girl gives us serious style goals. She really knows how to carry herself and usually has a very nicely put together look. She is also experimental and wears young Indian designers. Her looks can often be re-created on a budget, and still look stylish. 

Must follow in our opinion.

From Damsel to Diva - Kareena Kapoor’s Style Evolution Over the Years

Kareena Kapoor is one of the most stylish actresses in Bollywood. She is indeed a style icon. But she wasn’t like this ever since. The actress has undergone a process of transformation over the years and has reached the zenith of success.

From a simple blonde-haired girl to a top-notch actress, it took a while for Kareena to make a mark in the film industry. And today, she is a reigning queen in Bollywood in terms of talent, beauty and style.

Let’s stroll down the memory lane and trace Kareena Kapoor’s style journey from her debut movie to till date.

Debut with Refugee
Kareena Kapoor was a chubby teenager when she made her Bollywood debut with her first movie Refugee. This grand-daughter of Kapoor clan made her presence felt with her acting prowess. Kareena’s strong jaw-line, stark-white complexion and her bleached hair made her a head-turner. But overall, she was a plain Jane who was in a desperate need of a stylist. Usually, she was seen wearing jeans and t-shirt as she found this attire utterly comfortable.

Apart from that she loved bell-bottoms and chunky jewelry which did no justice to her voluptuous figure. And when she used to don something ethnic, it looked like a pile of mass on her. Her natural beauty was suppressed by her unflattering make-up that included her signature style of putting a light lip shade with a dark outline. It took away the entire attention from her strong jaw line which was her best feature.

All in all, she looked like a girl-next-door and not a celebrity at all. This phase had more misses than hits in Kareena Kapoor’s style quotient.

Size-zero Phase
There came a turning-point in her life when she flaunted her newly-acquired size-zero figure. She worked hard for this envy-inspiring body and was on a strict diet and exercise regimen. Bebo lost oodles of kilos for her role in movie named Tashan. She initiated the trend of size-zero and became a household name overnight. Her vital-stats became the most- discussed topic in the country at that point of time. She switched from jeans and t-shirts to more lady-like dresses and gowns to suit her new figure and voila she got her mojo back!

Her movie didn’t work well at the box-office, but for Kareena it was indeed a career-altering point. She got a lot of endorsements and every director wanted to cast her in their movie. Also, her locks got a complete transformation from blonde to auburn. Not just this, Kareena endorsed no-make up look with just a hint of blush and extremely kohled eyes. But it was her petite frame which did all the talking and the actress was happy showing it off. It was a reincarnated avatar of Kareena Kapoor.

Mrs. Kareena Kapoor Khan
The most crucial time for Kareena was her wedding to her prince charming Saif Ali Khan. Like every girl, Kareena too made sure that she looks like million bucks on her wedding day and she surely did. Though she gained weight and wasn’t size-zero anymore but Kareena knew by now what suits her best in terms of make-up and clothing. Her wardrobe now consists of lot of extravagant gowns and printed dresses and she loves to experiment with hemlines and silhouettes.

Her all-time favourite attire is sari and she swears by her close friend and designer Manish Malhotra’s creations. Bronzer became her new best friend and enhanced her sharp features. Kareena is ever-glowing and her post-marriage glow is even more evident. Kareena Kapoor’s style is very contagious and she is truly a trendsetter. Whatever she wears become a rage among her fans and they want to look like her.

All in all, this actress-par-excellence is elegance personified and her style has evolved over the years to become the glamazon she is today! If you'd like to read more, here is another good article about Kareena Kapoor's style.
