“Well, you’re covered. That’s a bonus.”
Sunny Leone got married to her husband Daniel Weber in 2011.
In the 113th episode of Brides Of Beverly Hills, Sunny can be seen shopping for her wedding dress alongside her brother Sundeep and friend Lia.
The 2011 reality television series features one of the city’s premier bridal boutiques Renee Strauss for the Bride.
The show helps bride-to-be’s find the perfect wedding dress for their big day.
In the 22-minute episode, the former adult film star tried on several wedding dresses.
For many brides, the idea of going over the top on their big day is appealing.
Sunny is no stranger to this as she is seen in several elaborate wedding dress designs throughout the episode.
Before her Bollywood career, Sunny worked in the adult film industry.
At the time, Sunny was the only Indian-Canadian model to grace the cover of Penthouse Magazine.
Sunny is widely recognised as the epitome of fashion as fans have witnessed the actress’s style evolve from playful to elegant.
Whilst the actress’ style has evolved, her love of bright shades and bold patterns remains.
Sunny Leone was recently recognised for her contribution to the fashion sphere at the 2021 PETA India’s Vegan Fashion Awards.
The event held on November 1, 2021, saw celebrities such as Alia Bhatt and Milind Soman bag top awards.
Sunny’s I Am Animal won the award for Best Activewear Brand.
Sunny, who has always encouraged her fans to refrain from using animal-derived fashion and products, joined hands with I Am Animal to promote vegan sportswear.
I Am Animal describes itself as a “100% organic and consciously-crafted unisex athleisure brand”.
Sunny talked candidly about her career as an adult film star with Renee Strauss and Mariya, a bridal stylist on Brides Of Beverly Hills.
Before Sunny tried on the wedding dresses, Mariya introduced herself and showed the Hate Story 2 actress her Clearly Dazzling shoe collection.
The bridal stylist explained that she is trying to introduce the shoe line into the adult entertainment industry.
As Sunny held the shoes, Lia asked the stylist why she thinks her collection would be popular with adult entertainers.
In response, Mariya said: “I did my homework. I’m proud to say.”
Mariya’s shoes resembled the classic Cinderella slipper, also known as stripper heels.
The mules had a clear, PVC strap and a slim, clear heel.
Sunny said: “I think Mariya’s shoes will go amazing in the adult film industry.
“I think if I find a dress or not, I’m taking a pair of shoes home.”
The conversation shifts back to the dress and Sunny explains that she is on the hunt for a fitted wedding dress that will hug her body.
As the pair head to the changing room, Sunny reveals her wedding dress budget between $5,000 to $7,000.
Mariya looks for wedding dresses and reveals that she is focusing on light and sexy dresses as Sunny will be having a beach wedding.
As Sunny tries on the wedding dresses, her brother Sundeep and friend Lia enjoy a glass of champagne.
“I have no idea about wedding dresses. I’m just here to look at them.”
Sunny emerged from the changing room with the first wedding dress.
The model can be seen wearing a $6,000 lace-embroidered, white dress with spaghetti straps and a fit and flare design.
Lace dresses are incredibly popular among brides as they add a touch of glamour and elegance.
Despite its appearance, lace is lightweight. This makes it an ideal material for a wedding dress.
Lia expresses her love for the see-through wedding dress but Sunny’s brother immediately covers his eyes and says:
“It’s pretty, just not on you.
“I can’t even look at my own sister right now.”
In a candid documentary titled Mostly Sunny, the actress talked about her relationship with her brother.
She revealed that the only person she confided in about her adult film career was her brother.
In Brides of Beverly Hills, Sunny also spoke of their close relationship.
Sunny said: “My brother has never judged me.
“He’s always just supported me and he’s all I have and I’m all he has.”
The Ek Paheli Leela actress added:
“It’s really special to me to have my brother here with me because we recently lost both of our parents and it’s been really hard but we’ve grown closer every single day.”
To please her brother, Sunny voted against the ‘revealing’ wedding dress and moved on to the next.
Mariya and Sunny were then seen in the changing room where the bridal stylist asked Sunny about her career making adult films.
The actress says: “I do it because I thoroughly enjoy it.”
Sunny revealed that all of the cameramen are her friends and her fiancé and she has rules in place.
She said: “My fiancé is the only person that I have sex with on-screen because he’s going to be my husband and the both of us believe that to have a healthy, happy relationship, we should have a monogamous relationship.”
Sunny shows the second dress, worth $7,000, to Lia and Sundeep before she says this dress will not work due to its weight.
Sundeep says he likes the pastel blue wedding dress with floral shoulder pads better.
He said: “Well, you’re covered. That’s a bonus.”
As trends come and go, brides are moving towards versatile dresses that can work perfectly for both the ceremony and the reception.
Removable statement shoulders similar to the ones on Sunny’s second dress are all the rage right now.
The removable shoulders work well for weddings in Autumn and Winter as they can provide a light layer of warmth.
Lia claims a traditional, white dress would be better before Sunny suggests something “virginal”.
Sunny swiftly returns in a white, halter-neck dress that is covered in silver sequins and has a deep neckline.
The third wedding dress is revealed to be worth $4,000.
Glitter and embellishments are popular among brides and can easily be incorporated into a bridal look.
From sequins to rhinestones, to metallic fabric and beaded detailing, sparkly dresses make a perfect reception look.
Speaking about the dress, Sunny says:
“The third dress I tried on was absolutely gorgeous.
“It made me feel beautiful, it made me feel sexy, it made me feel like a bride.”
Sunny reveals she loves the dress and has goosebumps whilst trying it on.
Sundeep said: “It is absolutely gorgeous, it has sequins and all these jewels and I didn’t see too much skin.
“I mean, that’s all I can ask as a brother.”
Whilst Sunny seemed delighted with the wedding dress, she did not wear the $4,000 dress on her big day.
After a dreamy proposal, the actress married Daniel on April 9, 2011.
Sunny and her husband Daniel had two wedding ceremonies.
For the Christian ceremony, Sunny wore a simple, strapless, white wedding gown and a red, traditional Indian lehenga for the Sikh wedding.
Sunny first became a household name in India when she participated in season 5 of the reality show Bigg Boss in 2011.
After that, Sunny entered Hindi films with Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2.
Sunny and Daniel have a daughter, Nisha, and two twin sons, Noah and Asher, together.
The couple adopted Nisha in July 2017 from Latur, Maharashtra and had the twins via surrogacy.
