They had multiple functions — a sangeet, registered marriage, an exchange of vows, and receptions in Mumbai and New Delhi. Most of the bride’s outfits were designed by her friend Manish Malhotra, except for the gharara she wore for the exchange of vows; it belonged to her mother-in-law and was restored by Ritu Kumar. Raghavendra Rathore designed the groom’s outfits. All the events were strictly private, given how glitzy the guest list was. Most of Bollywood was there, of course, but the Delhi reception also saw a lot of political biggies marking attendance.

Lara Dutta Bhupathi’s new line of ethnic fashion wear

Known for her easy, chic and elegant style, the former Miss Universe is set to launch her own line of ethnic wear. This multi-tasking mom who has her hand in many pies — acting, producing films, and a fitness DVD — is a smart businesswoman too. Just in time for the festive season, her line of clothing should not have a tough time flying off the shelves, considering she 
has quite a posse of fashionable friends, and is well respected for her personal style. She tweeted a picture of herself in one of her outfits, and while we’re 
wondering why someone who usually opts for dresses and such would design an ethnic line, we’re waiting to see what the collection looks like!
