Genelia Deshmukh never leaves a chance to show off her true self. Over the years, she has beautifully taken care of her family. The actress left everyone stunned when she tied the knot with Riteish Deshmukh on February 03, 2012. From being co-actors to being lovers and then life-partners, the duo has been together for over a decade. However, we are not talking about Genelia's love story, but her fashion choices.
Genelia left us stunned when she re-wore her wedding day lehenga for two important family functions. Yes, Genelia had first re-styled her wedding lehenga for her brother-in-law, Dheeraj Deshmukh on February 28, 2012. Later, she wore it again for her brother, Nigel D'Souza's wedding on April 15, 2015. And, media went berserk with pointing this out to the entire world (as if, Genelia wasn’t aware of it!). Well, we personally loved to see a celeb as stunning and stylish as her, wear the same dress again.

Over the years, we have often seen girls, who fear repeating an outfit even for a distant relative's wedding or a best friend's engagement. If you don't believe us, then think about the times when you, yourself had repeated any dress. Well, it doesn’t matter if that dress is being worn for two entirely different and unconnected crowds. We all fear repeating an outfit. We often think, it is out of fashion" or "everyone has seen it in the pics". But Genelia never feared this thought, the gorgeousness left us stunned by repeating her wedding day lehenga for not just one but two most special weddings in her family.
Riteish and Genelia had tied the knot on February 3, 2012. For the wedding, she chose Sabyasachi Mukherjee's lehenga. The outfit featured a beautiful lehenga with golden zari work, a golden blouse and and double dupatta. However, in teh same month, Reteish Deshmukh's brother, Dheeraj Deshmukh got married on February 28, 2012. So, for the first official family wedding that Genelia got to be a part of as the Deshmukh bahu. So, maybe that is why; she decided to re-wore her wedding lehenga. And, we totally heart anything that gives us a chance to get an emotional high; that is why we totally love this lehenga!
For Genelia, her lehenga is now more of a treasure trove of memories. After all, she had worn the beautiful lehenga for not just one but two most special functions in her life. From her brother-in-law’s wedding to her brother’s, she has simply turned an outfit into a keepsake and a memento of two happy occasions in her life. There are very few dresses that would make you as nostalgic as your own wedding lehenga.
Yes, Genelia's wedding lehenga from Sabyasachi is a classic. The green and red are evergreen Indian wedding colours, and the heavy work on it, makes them even more stunning. And we are sure that she is definitely going to pass it on to her future daughters-in-law. What do you think?
