Priyanka Chopra Wore a Sabyasachi Wedding Dress For Her Traditional Indian Ceremony –


Priyanka Chopra had not one, but two stunning wedding looks this weekend. After she and Nick Jonas tied the knot in a Western ceremony on Saturday (wearing custom Ralph Lauren, no less), the couple married again in a traditional Hindu ceremony on Sunday.

For their second wedding, both Nick and Priyanka wore custom looks by Sabyasachi, a top Indian designer known for dressing some of the country’s biggest celebrities. (He recently dressed Bollywood royalty Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh for their wedding last month.)

Chopra wore a sparkling, crimson red lehenga made of hand-cut organza flowers, French knots in silk floss, and Siam-red crystals. It took 110 embroiderers in Calcutta and 3,720 hours to create this insanely intricate look, the brand revealed on Instagram.

“I always knew I wanted a red traditional silhouette for my wedding but Sabya brought in incredible French embroidery to the mix and with incredible jewelry and Western-inspired veil it was just such an amalgamation of who I am,” Chopra said of her dress to People.

Paying tribute to traditional Mughal jewelry, Priyanka’s wedding day jewels included uncut diamonds, emeralds, and Japanese cultured pearls set in 22-karat gold by Chopard, People adds. There were also diamonds shaped as tiny stars to give the bridal look a whimsical touch and extra shimmer, Sabyasachi revealed on Instagram. Her necklace featured 84.50 carats of pear-shaped diamonds in 18k white gold, and hear earrings consisted of 6.07-carat pear-shaped diamonds.

Nick also wore an ensemble by the designer, which featured a hand-quilted silk sherwani, a hand-embroidered chikan dupatta, and chanderi tissue safa, the brand added on Instagram. He was also decked out in jewels, including a rose cut kalgi and Syndicate diamond necklace, both by Sabyasachi.

“It melted my heart,” Priyanka told People, on having two wedding ceremonies to celebrate her and Nick’s backgrounds. “Being able to have two big weddings, in India, with our closest family and friends was unbelievably special.”

When the newlyweds were seen leaving their wedding location yesterday, Priyanka also wore a look by Sabyasachi, this time opting for a green and gold sari.
