For the auspicious occasion, the Ayalaan actress wore a pretty multi-colored lehenga set that was created by none other than one of Bollywood’s favorite creative fashion mavens, Arpita Mehta.

The whole look featured a short blouse with a structured body-hugging corset-like silhouette and an alluring plunging neckline. This was paired with a matching floor-length pleated lehenga skirt with a colorful floral print all over it. However, the highlight of the entire outfit was a heavily embellished and elaborate sheer cape with intricate hand embroidery that made her outfit look flawless.

The nature-inspired orange and pink phulkari embroidery of the piece featured a unique mixture of thread work with well-placed mirror work, dramatic geometric golden kasab, and cutdana work, which made her outfit look richer. The outfit was completed with matching colorful and classy Arpita Mehta x SKO mules with little kitten heels. We can expect Rakul Preet Singh’s fusion mehendi look to be recreated by brides in the upcoming wedding season as it ditches the old lehenga choli concept and replaces it with a fresh one which is surely for the books!

The color palette chosen by Rakul for her mehendi event is quite refreshing as well. The orange and pink exude summer vibes and add a touch of playfulness to the occasion as well. Additionally, the outfit is such that it can be repeated in the future as well.

Going for a traditional approach with her well-tied hairstyle, Rakul opted for a long braid which was beautifully adorned with delicate polki hair pins and a colorful floral veil wrapped around the same. She also kept the nature-inspired theme going with a statement-worthy pretty floral maang tikka. She also added incomparable paasa-style gold earrings.

This had a flowery design and layered polki and pearl droplets. Meanwhile, Singh went with a matching minimalistic makeup look, with a dewy base, pink eyeshadow, mascara-laden lashes, heavy pink blush, shimmery highlighter, and the prettiest orangish-pink lipstick, which was the highlight of the whole look. To say that we love this one would be a total understatement.
