Varun Dhawan And Natasha Dalal’s Wedding Outfits Are Getting A Lot Of Dislikes. We Could Cut Them Some Slack
While you were busy sipping martinis over the weekend and cribbing about how there aren’t any good guys left on Bumble, Varun Dhawan got hitched to his high school sweetheart Natasha Dalal in Alibaug. Yes, that happened. The actor finally tied the knot to his long-term girlfriend but the Dhawan—Dalal wedding made headlines for all the wrong reasons. It was no different than any other celebrity wedding. While the couple followed the footsteps of Virushka and DeepVeer of picking an exquisite and dreamy location for the ceremony and kept the affair pretty hush-hush until the very last moment to avoid media glare, their fans kept up with the old-age tradition of criticising the newly weds over their looks post-wedding. SMH!
The fashion critiques on the internet didn’t seem too happy with the wedding outfits of Varun and Natasha and were seriously disappointed with their pick for the day. The fact that Natasha wore white head-to-toe for the wedding specifically didn’t sit well with the netizens who also branded the look as too gaudy and dominating. The lehenga was crafted by ace designer Manish Malhotra and if you ask us, she looks gorgeous in the bridal ensemble.

Varun and Natasha matched their wedding outfits in an offbeat pale white adorned with silver beaded work and intricate embroidery. Natasha made for a gorgeous minimalist bride in the embellished white lehenga with a contemporary blouse featuring ruched details and sheer sleeves. The white dupatta had similar work in silver while Varun’s sherwani had a silk stole with pastel blue hues. Natasha’s makeup and hair were also very understated and fresh (read: bridal look goals). She kept things simple with defined eyes, nude lip and matching white flowers in her hair.
Natasha ditched the traditional red for the lehenga, chooda and kaleeras and instead chose an unconventional colour for her bridal look; a concept fairly new to many which sort of explains the criticism. However, some didn’t hold back from attacking her profession and pointed fingers on her fashion flair as a designer which is seriously uncalled for. While it’s completely okay to have an opinion about something, slamming a couple for their clothes on their big day is pretty uncool, IMO.

This is not the first time that a celebrity bride had been judged for her choice of bridalwear. Before this, Neha Kakkar was ridiculed and accused of copying Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Chopra’s wedding looks which could have been simply an inspiration. She was also targeted as a singer where fans called it a fashion “remake” by her. Gauahar Khan’s red and gold velvet lehenga that she wore for her reception was also heavily criticised for being “off” and “too chunky”. From calling it a sartorial equivalent of a chandelier to suggesting that her impeccable fashion statement had gone for a toss for her D-day, the so-called fashion police had plenty to say about her look.
Apart from the unwanted attention and media hype, celebrity weddings also attract unnecessary criticism especially around how the bride and groom fared on the fashion scorecard. Is it really important? Whether it is Varun’s shoes or Natasha’s white chooda, discussing the minuscule details and degrading the couple on their style is highly inappropriate. She didn’t break any fashion rules or offend anyone with her sartorial choice, so what’s the fuss about? What the bride chooses to wear is none of our business even if she wants to walk down the aisle wearing a pantsuit (there was one cool bride) or even shorts (again, there was one badass bride). Whether it is all-white or neon green, lehenga or pants, a bride should be able to wear whatever the hell she wants without being judged or laughed at, celebrity or not. Don’t you think?
