How are you all? I hope you are all geared up to celebrate the extended weekend in full fervor (like me of course!). How did you find our collaboration with the popular fashion and lifestyle blogger Ananya Kiran? If you missed the post on Red Carpet looks we created with her, click here. In continuation with our Red Carpet looks, we thought of bringing to you the best looks of a Bollywood Celebrity. And we will do this often now, since we get a lot of ideas to pick from their dressing sense (and they are actually getting paid for this by the big designers!). This week’s point of learning is the style diva Sonam Kapoor. As we all know, despite giving not so great movies she has gained acclaim in both India and abroad like, not because of her family history but because of her fashionable dressing style. Whenever I have to buy a fashionable ethnic wear, ‘Sonam Kapoor’ is what I google.She has been spotted wearing numerous brands (which have also become popular due to her) at award functions, fashion weeks, weddings, movie promotions as well as other events. So I picked up Ten Best picks from her ensembles. These looks act an inspiration to dressing, as well as give brilliant ideas to shop this festive cum wedding season. Also we get to know some designers we might not have heard about. So just go through the list:
- In Ralph and Russo Couture Gown for Cannes International Film Festival
Sonam Kapoor brilliantly carried off this cobalt blue gown from Ralph and Russo’s Spring 2014 Collection at the premier of ‘The Sea of Trees’ . Her curled hair, Chopard Sapphire and diamond earrings and blue Zanotti Sandals completed her sophisticated look. The color stood out at the red carpet and this outfit is one of her best picks. She made the designer duo popular among Indian’s (like me), who had no known about them earlier.
- In Anamika Khanna at Delhi Couture Week
Sonam was called the Sari Diva after she was spotted in this not-so-conventional Sari by Anamika. Anamika Khanna is the first Indian designer to introduce her international label and is known for blending Indian fabrics and styles with western silhouette and stitching. The color of the drape is to die for. This shade can never go out of trend at least for a few years to come. Black tights, metallic clutch, messy hair, Kundan Polki neck-piece and black pumps complete her look.
- In Anamika Khanna at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne
Sonam recently walked the ramp in Melbourne in a off-white ghagra choli with gold embroidery detailing. That was pure Indian! The lace bordered dupatta and gold neckpiece added to the Indian touch. This kind of work by Anamika is perfect for Indian wedding extravaganza.
- In Shantanu and Nikhil for her Trailer launch
Anarkali has still not become a thing of the past, and I believe it never will! This blush pink anarkali and Suhani Pettit’s jewelry made her look soft and sober. The draped styled chiffon dupatta, black detailing and the blush beige color was worth a steal from this dress.
- In Anupama Dayal in Khoobsurat
The colorful dhoti pants, crop top and jackets and skirts from this flick gave her casual yet chic avatar. Though the movie didn’t run well, Sonam’s unique look still was noticed. I posted in a similar dhoti a while back (click here to see).
6. In JJ Valaya at IIJW finale show
I myself had eyes on this sari at JJ Valaya store in the Galeria Mall, but could not buy despite getting nice promotion as no occasion was falling closely to wear it. Sonam Kapoor, apart from saris with western touch, also carries regular drape saris extremely well. This sari in digital print is inspired by the Mughal era and has thread embellishments all over. It is classy and easy to carry. Sonam walked the ramp at the show stopper loaded with Kundan and gold jewelry. Click to see my posts on JJ Valaya outfits here and here.
- In Elie Saab at Cannes Film Festival
There was a lot of Elie Saab at Cannes this year. Sonam wore a sorbet-colored feathered and beaded dress to the screening of the film ‘Inside Out’. The dress is grand and beautiful! She accessorised in red, and the Red carpet complimented!
- In Burberry at the Burberry show
Burberry has made trench coat so popular that all brands are making it and it has become a must-have for a winter wardrobe. Sonam was spotted in the classic Burberry Trench Coat for the Burberry show. See Shruti’s post on Trench coat and my on Burberry Trench Dress here.
- In Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla at the Chopard Party
Sonam was spotted in Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla at the Chopard party after the Cannes festival. The sculpted black and gold top, satin skirt, Smokey eyes, parted hairdo was all different and dramatic. It was a bit unusual from what you see Sonam sporting.
- In Dolce and Gabbana at the D&G Show
Snam Kapoor is known for carrying prints amazingly well, be it floral or any other. She wore this fitted-dress in sunflower and onion print by the designers Dolce and Gabbana for their show. She carried this unique vegetable print quite well. Her gold peep toes, red lips, and red bag from the same brand completed her look.
