Sonam dazzles on red carpet
With her experimental streak and confidence to pull off any look, Sonam Kapoor is slowly emerging as the new style chameleon. Though her love for vintage and ethnic is evident, the trailblazer knows how to mix contemporary with traditional. No surprises then that Sonam followed her instinct and turned up in a saree for the red carpet on the first day of the ongoing Cannes Film Festival 2013. The look, of course, wasn’t without a typical Sonam touch.
Sonam Kapoor took the red carpet for The Great Gatsby screening wearing a delicate lace saree in white by her favourite designer Anamika Khanna. The saree was amazingly ornate which made it look very interesting, and as Sonam loves a sense of drama in her dresses, she also included a long cape-like jacket that had heavy embroidery on it. A nathni (with polki stones) by her mom Sunita Kapoor, dark maroon lips and dramatic winged eyes completed her Indian look. The pretty lassie was styled by sister Rhea Kapoor.
While most of the fans of Sonam Kapoor have appreciated her bold step by giving a simple saree a makeover, there are a few calling the look “over-dramatic”. What’s your opinion?
For us, she stood out from the rest, and perfectly balanced simplicity with flamboyance, Indianness with couture, and delicacy with drama. One of the fans wrote, “Cannes with desi tadka SPICY…beautiful sonamkapoor,” and we totally agree.
Sonam was also seen in a pink Ellie Saab haute couture dress at the opening gala dinner. She stuck to the basics and complemented the look with matching accessories, and straight hair. Another look to rave about!
Can’t get enough of Sonam! Here’s the lovely actress walking the red carpet at the opening gala of Festival de Cannes 2013:
