Just reading this interview excerpt of Deepika’s bridal trousseau wish-list has us wanting her taking the jump pronto so we can have a looksee. 🙂 That maybe a while away, but here is Deepika wearing more Bridal couture in the latest issue of Verve. You can catch her full interview on Verve here and the cover pic here.
“However, Padukone isn’t going to settle just for the traditional saat pheras. And she isn’t particularly enthused about the Punjabisation of the Indian wedding. “Today, even a non-Punjabi wants to have a Punjabi wedding,” she says ruefully. She loves tradition and knows she will not stray far from her Mangalorean roots at her own wedding. But she also wants to have one ceremony in every religion, just so she can wear all the wonderful traditional outfits that go with each. “I want to wear an embroidered gharara for my nikaah with a stunning maang tikka in my hair, a flowing white wedding gown in a church and a rich lehnga for the sangeet. For the South Indian wedding, I will wear a traditional Kanjeevaram sari from Nalli with a gold belt on my waist and braid my hair with jasmine,” she says enthusiastically.
She has also thought through which designers she wants creating the wedding outfits. It’s important to her that each outfit is very different. “Tarun Tahiliani will make me a western gown style lehnga which will be my wedding outfit. I want Gudda (Rohit Bal) to create something in white, gold and silver for me because in my first year of modelling that was his Fashion Week collection and I remember thinking I wanted a wedding outfit like that. A dark maroon net sari by Sabyasachi (Mukherjee) with his Bengali aesthetic would also be lovely, as would a richly embroidered outfit by Anamika Khanna. My trousseau would be incomplete without a classic chiffon sari from Manish Malhotra because that’s what I grew up watching in his films,” she says, finally pausing to breathe. ”
