The wedding festivities of the very fashionable couple, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja are underway. The three-day affair witnessed a close-knit Mehendi ceremony at Anil Kapoor’s residence last night! Tonight, the sangeet and Mehendi ceremonies for both families and the crème la crème of tinsel town were held at the Signature Island in BKC, Mumbai. When the bonafide fashionista gets hitched, it’s certainly a seriously fashionable affair! Making it a memorable one, the reigning theme for the festivities tonight was the fabulous and classy white – the subtle hue that’s synonymous with summer splendour and calm. The white brigade were led by the adorable couple who twinned in matching ivory ensembles, grinning from ear to ear and flaunting that visible wedding glow! Making a stunning style statement in white were Sonam’s cousins – Janhvi Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor, Anshula Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor. Additionally, Sonam’s BFF’s Swara Bhasker, Jacqueline Fernandez, Katrina Kaif too made those riveting statements in white. The men, too, notched up the ante in whites, cutting out a dapper picture and included Varun Dhawan and Harshvardhan Kapoor. Arjun Kapoor adhered to the theme, albeit a quirky twist. But, it was Karan Johar who showcased his sartorial take on the theme, bringing oodles of florals and that signature pout.
