Billionaire heiress Natasha Poonawalla threw a lavish dinner party for Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja

Celebrating Bollywood's most loved-up couple

By ELLE team  June 4th, 2018

The Kapoors sure know how to throw a party and play hospitable hosts, but they also know how to be the best guests. To celebrate the newly-married couple Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand Ahuja, India’s first lady of fabulousness Natasha Poonawalla (the executive director of Serum Institute of India, one of world’s largest vaccine manufacturing companies; the director of Villoo Poonawalla Racing and Breeding Pvt Ltd; and the director of the Poonawalla Science Park) threw an equally fabulous dinner party with Bollywood’s crème de la crème in attendance. From the couture-clad couple cutting (yet another) four-tier wedding cake and popping the most expensive champagne to dancing to the tunes of American DJs Mia Moratti and Margot of The Dolls (who especially flew down for the bash, just sayin’), here’s everything you missed from Natasha’s party:

The couple of the hour made quite the entry. But where’s the red carpet? 

Oh, there it is, right under an ostentatious chandelier, and an equally ostentatious gang of girls: Natasha, Karisma Kapoor, celebrity stylist Tanya Ghavri and Sonam.

No good host is modestly dressed, ever. Take a leaf out of Natasha’s fashion rule book, who came dressed as a swan to her own party, because why not? #RedefineExtra

Karisma put her best foot forward in a black and green sequinned Lanvin dress, but no amount of sequins and bling could counter Sonam’s radiant glow.

You see what we mean? Even her diamond wedding ring is paling in comparison…

The new bride’s royal blue Sophie Et Voila gown with dazzling statement sleeves definitely added to the night’s glory. Of course, Karan Johar carried his swag along.

Sonam’s cousin Mohit Marwah was there.

As was Maheep Kapoor.

Did Jacqueline Fernandez and Rhea Kapoor exchange style notes for the night? The two are #twinning in their striped shirts.

Rhea Kapoor picked an oversized striped shirt from Y Project.

And there’s the gorgeous couple…oops, cake.

What’s a successful party without great music? Natasha especially flew down American DJs Mia Moratti and Margot of The Dolls.
