Rakul Singh surely knows how to curate the perfect occasion wear wardrobe. Give her a classic sari or a sexy lehenga, and you can trust that the star will pull off both silhouettes effortlessly. Singh is also not one to shy away from unusual shades and vibrant motifs that often serve as a beautiful extension of her vivacious personality. Take her Sana Barreja lehenga for example. The actor wore the stunning ice blue creation when attending Ekta Kapoor’s star-studded Diwali bash in Mumbai with her partner Jackky Bhagnani in October 2022. Ahead, the Delhi-based designer shares details about the lehenga.

“Rakul opted for a lehenga from our festive 2022 collection, ‘Ahalya’. This collection is a mélange of old world charm and bold new energy. You’ll find soft floral prints that are accented with the richness of paisleys. The timeless textiles are enhanced with intricate hand embroideries, along with an array of mirror work, colorful beads and gemstones. You’ll see these details in Rakul’s Nasreen lehenga too. In an eye-catching ice blue shade, her paisley print lehenga is crafted using lightweight handwoven Chanderi silk that illustrates vintage florals and geometric borders. The lehenga print was first hand-drawn and painted before being digitally improvised. Thread and mirror work further accentuate the set. The highlight is her sexy blouse, showcasing a sensual plunging neckline and an open-back with doris. To elevate it, we rounded off the lehenga with a matching dupatta,” shares Sana Barreja, elaborating on Singh’s striking ensemble. “Rakul wanted an outfit that was not too heavy but still elaborate enough for the night, for which Sana’s paisley print lehenga fit perfectly,” revealed the actor’s stylist, Anshika Verma.

Luxe in essence and old-world romantic in inspiration, Rakul Singh’s ice blue Sana Barreja lehenga is easy to dress up or down. For Diwali, Rakul Singh ensured the focus was on her lehenga by accessorising with nothing except a choker by Amama and a stack of kadas. With her hair in a straight blowdry, she completed her makeup with soft caramel tones.

The pure Chanderi silk and handiwork in Singh’s Sana Barreja look is the kind you’ll want to repeat for your most special occasions. “The lehenga features 16 kalis, making it ideal for a bride to twirl and dance the night away in. It is comfortable, has a regal vintage look with a modern feel. It’s a beautiful pick for a bride to wear on her mehandi ceremony, cocktail night or even her destination wedding. While Rakul went minimal with her jewellery, I suggest a bride to opt for an uncut polki set with emerald drops for her big day,” recommends Barreja. The best part is we know where you can buy the exact same lehenga online. Read on.
