At the masquerade ball, Radhika wore a custom-made Versace dress in blue and silver, reflecting the colors of the Côte d’Azur. However, it was her opal and diamond necklace by Lorraine Schwartz that stole the spotlight. The necklace holds deep personal significance: the opal is Radhika’s birthstone, and the diamond represents Anant’s birthstone. Radhika also accessorized with a chunky diamond bracelet, dainty diamond earrings, and several rings, enhancing her regal look.

During the final event of the cruise, La Dolce Vita, in Portofino, Radhika wore a vintage Yves Saint Laurent for Dior cocktail dress from 1959. The raspberry silk faille dress, featuring a crumb-catcher bodice and a bow at the waist, was initially valued between USD 1500 and 2000 (approximately Rs. 1.25-1.66 lakh). However, it was auctioned in 2016 for USD 3840 (about Rs. 3.19 lakh). Radhika completed her look with a Hermes mini Kelly bag worth Rs. 22.5 lakh, Manolo Blahnik Hangisi flats priced at Rs. 99,319, a scarf tied around her ponytail, dainty earrings, and a sleek neckpiece.
