Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s bridal looks were enhanced with classy make-up done by her close friend and ace Bollywood make-up artist and hairstylist, Namrata Soni. And Sonam’s traditional graceful pieces of jewellery in all her wedding looks are surely a sheer inspiration for all the brides. Namrata Soni, in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, gave an insight to Sonam Kapoor’s breathtakingly beautiful bridal looks, what went behind creating those looks, what were bride Sonam’s outputs, how was she as a bride and many more.
Starting with how was Sonam Kapoor as a bride, Namrata said, “She was amazing!! Came on time, sat on time, happy as ever. It was amazing to see her, she was glowing and beaming from ear to ear. She was a beautiful, happy bride and no tantrums, no bridezilla. We had a complete blast getting ready and it was awesome.” On what inputs she gave for her looks, Namrata stated, “She just wanted to be herself, wanted to have fun. She didn’t want to be tied down or go crazy with hair and makeup. Her looks were very understated and very classy and that’s how Sonam is.” (Also Read: Sonam Kapoor Ahuja-Anand Ahuja Share An Unseen Pic From Their Wedding With A Romantic Caption)
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s mother, Mrs Sunita Kapoor is a jewellery designer, so when asked if Sonam wore anything from her collection, Namrata was quoted as saying, “Everything was her mother’s. Every single piece of jewellery that she wore was her mother’s. Her mother is one of the most amazing jewellery designers and every single piece was better than the other. I honestly don’t know which one I loved more.” About the beautiful headgear Sonam wore on her wedding, Namrata described, “It’s a vintage headpiece and I don’t think anyone has ever done that. Sonam is the only one who would set that trend and now this trend is going to go crazy. The reason that the traditional headpiece looks modern is that she kept it simple. She was so excited about the headgear, I cannot even tell you. The minute she showed it to me I was speechless because it was so stunning. She honestly looked like a total and complete Maharani and I don’t think anyone can look like that. I mean the ability to carry off something like that and make it look effortless is so difficult.” (Also Read: Half-Sisters Janhvi Kapoor And Anshula Kapoor Twinning In Sky-Blue 'Lehengas' At Sonam's Reception)
Speaking of Sonam’s wedding make-up, Namrata quipped, “She looked simply stunning! I barely did any makeup on her. I think at the mehendi, she had more makeup on her eye than the wedding. I just did a very delicate eyeliner like literally non-existent and applied two coats of mascara, a tinted red lip balm for her and just soft peach cheeks, that’s it. She was wearing such an insanely heavy headpiece, I think it’s a vintage headgear from one of the Maharanis and it was so stunning; that’s why going OTT with the makeup would have been a mistake. She wore such a beautiful Anuradha Vakil outfit so, we just kept a simple middle parted bun and we put that huge headpiece on her. The minute we put that headpiece came, she looked like a bride. You know maang-tikas and matha-pattis are so beautiful but I got tears in my eyes after I saw her with that headpiece.” (Also Read: Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja's Post-Wedding Cake Is Unique And Tells A Cute Story About The Couple)
Namrata also shared that along with her, Sonam and Rhea were working on the wedding looks. She revealed, “Honestly, it was just Sonam, Rhea and me. Rhea, I must say is extremely hands-on when it comes to styling and getting everything together. Rhea and I had a conversation, we discussed it. Post that, I met Sonam and we started doing the looks and Sonam said that she wanted a soft and beautiful look and that’s precisely what Rhea had discussed with me right from the beginning.” (Also read: Sonam And Sunita's Video Dancing To 'London Thumakda' Is The Best Maa-Beti Moment From The Wedding)
