Anamika also talked about the inspiration behind the wedding lehenga and revealed it was Athiya Shetty. She added, “Athiya has an extremely sophisticated, sophisticated and beautiful aesthetic. I wanted to develop something special for her to match the fact that she was going to be a bride, but she did not. “She’s never going to be the bride everything is for her. someone else will take over. She’s got a very strong personality, and I think she’s acutely aware of that.”
Anamika Khanna added, “There’s nothing to shout about to get attention [with the lehenga], however, that’s just her. It’s safe to say it’s not an outfit she’ll get bored with even in years to come.” The designer went to great lengths to create this exquisite piece for Athiya Shetty.
Meanwhile, Athiya embodies the essence of old world glamour, with a trend towards less is more wedding lehenga style. She chose pastel pink eyeshadow, nude pink lips and kohl-lined eyelids for her glamorous outfits. Maximum mehendi design, a heavy choker necklace, tika carry, earrings, bracelet and center parted bun complete it all.
