After giving us 50s glamour in her Dolce & Gabbana gown for the ‘Jeune & Jolie’ Cannes Film Festival premiere yesterday evening, which Messrs Dolce and Gabbana said “emphasised her unique beauty”, Sonam Kapoor selected a more traditional look for the Trophee Chopard party yesterday evening.
This time the Indian actress wore a jaw-dropping Shehla Khan dove-grey creation with black lace and a sheer cape.
She incorporated the hosts’ spectacular jewels by wearing a breathtaking Chopard necklace dripping with sparkling diamonds under the cape.
The clutch feels so out of place that I wish it was in another room altogether; however, her hair and makeup are flawless.

Yet more goosebumps were to be had when Sonam Kapoor took to the red carpet this evening for the ‘Jeune & Jolie’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival.
Her strapless petal blooming Dolce & Gabbana gown took center stage with its voluminous silhouette.
It’s a well worked silhouette by the Sicilian designers, let’s face it, but never have I seen one showcased and presented as beautiful as this.
She styled her look with Sunita Kapoor jewels partly covered by her luscious wavy locks and pumps swathed with the same rose print.
Since Fan Bingbing went the brand ambassadorial route, it was left to Sonam Kapoor to serve up something traditional on the red carpet for the Opening Ceremony of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival this evening.
The Indian actress wore a stunning Anamika Khanna Couture white lace saree featuring intricate gold embroidered through-out.
While I love the authenticity of this look, I have to give thumbs down the nose ring. Had it been smaller and not dominating her face, maybe I would’ve jumped on board.
Jimmy Choo shoes and Sunita K jewels completed her look.
Yay or nay on the nose ring?
Sonam Kapoor attended the Hindustan Times Style Awards 2013 held at Hotel ITC Grand Central in Parel, Mumbai on Thursday evening.
The Indian actress wore a black Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 gown with cross-strap detailing and a gold-accented waist belt, which is our first look at this collection on the red carpet.
Her dress might have been considered ho-hum had it not been for the styling.
Fierce wing-tip eyes, a gold Elie Saab box clutch and on-trend ear cuffs courtesy of Valliyan by Nitya accessorized her look.
You’ll be forgiven if Doctor Spock comes to mind when looking at her ear cuffs.

During the holidays, Sonam Kapoor attended Imran Khan’s house-warming party, which was attended by many local celebrities.
The Indian star wore an Alessandra Rich Fall 2012 dress.
Her pale-pink dress with long ribbon sleeves and a silver waistband was styled with a silver Jimmy Choo ‘Tube’ clutch and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Fiona’ sandals.
The dress is divine, but is quite lacklustre on Sonam as she fails to breath any life into the look.
Sonam’s heavy makeup and her decision to mix metals when styling this look puts me off.
