The former Miss World was a vision of loveliness in a white anarkali outfit which was overwhelmed by white floral embroidery and gold embroidery on top to boot. The full sleeves and the midriff were partially sheer, which gave her ensemble an understatedly sexy touch.

Aishwarya chose only a cocktail ring and dangle earrings to accessorize, rounding off her look with wavy locks and natural makeup. Her famous peepers, however, were accenutated with dramatic eye makeup in neutral shades.
Hubby Abhishek complemented her almost bridal avatar in a spiffy black tuxedo.
