Sonam Kapoor In Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla – Chopard Party

Sonam Kapoor In Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla - Chopard Party

Having seen more pictures, and had more time to digest Sonam Kapoor’s Elie Saab Couture feathered gown, I have to say I’m now fully on board with the look.

As some mentioned she is the ONLY one bring the drama to this quite lacklustre event which was proven once again yesterday evening (May 18) at the Chopard party during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

For those concerned by her lack of choices by Indian designers, you’ll be delighted to see her wearing this epic piece from Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla.

I don’t think I’ve seen this kind of architectural brilliance since Lee McQueen. It probably weighs a ton, but Sonam carries the look off with perfect poise.

Amped up with smoky eyes, Chopard jewels and a Corto Moltedo clutch, I have to say this ranks as one of my favourites from the Bollywood beauty.

Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Inside Out’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Inside Out" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Sonam Kapoor attended the ‘Inside Out’ premiere during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

When I saw the Indian beauty wearing this lime-green Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture gown styled with stunning Chopard jewels, I said under my breath, ‘I knew it’.

That is, I knew this gown would be near impossible to pull off on the red carpet.

Sonam is never shy of a challenge, so I commend her for taking the risk, but I’m not ready to commit to loving this look at this time.

I’m leaving the door open in case I change my mind and see a better picture later in the evening, but at this point I will just give her an A for effort.

You may remember I had this on my wish list for Fan Bingbing.

Sonam Kapoor In Ralph & Russo Couture – ‘The Sea Of Trees’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"The Sea Of Trees" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Sonam Kapoor attended ‘The Sea of Trees’ at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 16) in Cannes, France.

Parading out an even more intensely electric shade of blue than Jane Fonda, Sonam stunned in a Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture gown.

This extravagant piece delivered on high drama between the powerful colour and the theatrical, period-style silhouette.

The exaggerated hip-length draping isn’t always an easy look to say the least, but Sonam wears it with such beautiful aplomb.

Complementary Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and glittering Chopard earrings, along with enviably glossy tresses and a punchy coral-red lip and matching nails, all took the look to the next level. It wouldn’t have been the same without this dynamic styling.

Sonam Kapoor In Ashi Studio & Katrina Kaif In Jenny Packham – L’Oreal Paris ‘Matte or Gloss’ Cannes Collection Launch

L'Oreal Paris 'Matte or Gloss' Cannes Collection Launch

Sonam Kapoor and Katrina Kaif made for a fetching duo at the L’Oreal Paris ‘Matte or Gloss’ Cannes Collection Launch held at Lalit Hotel on Saturday (April 25) in Mumbai, India, where the two beauties served up unique looks that still corresponded well with each other.

Sonam Kapoor: Blending the best of classic elegance and directional charm, the actress delighted in this Ashi Studio high-low gown with dimensional, fern-like embroidery. I love the sophisitication of the off-the-shoulder silhouette mixed with the whimsical, asymmetrical effect of the voluminous skirt and bustle. As to be expected, her beauty look was on-point with a hot fuchsia lip enlivening the dress even more.

Katrina Kaif: As the newest ambassador for L’Oreal India, Katrina shimmered in a Jenny Packham pale-pink gown that featured an effortless sense of languid, luxe glamour with a flowing silhouette and allover beading. Her flame-red waves and bright lavender-pink lip likewise enriched the dress with a touch of mod colour.

While both girls are lovely, I favour Sonam’s look for its enchanting, forward spin on classic elegance.

Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab - 2015 Hindustan Times Mumbai's Most Stylish Awards

Sonam Kapoor attended the Hindustan Times Mumbai’s Most Stylish Awards 2015 ceremony in Mumbai on Thursday (March 26).

After captivating us as Best Dressed of the Week in her pale-pink Maticevski confection, she continued to shine in a mint-green Elie Saab Resort 2015 embellished gown with corresponding sash.

While this look doesn’t have the same take-your-breath-away quality, I still love her current embrace of soft pastel shades, which work beautifully with her complexion.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Nathalie Emmanuel In Mugler and Sonam Kapoor In Maticevski

BDOTW 30 march

We had a double two-way tie this week, with you guys both loving Nathalie Emmanuel in Mugler and Sonam Kapoor in Maticevski for the ladies, and Kit Harington and Michiel Huisman in Louis Vuitton for the fellas.

Nathalie and Sonam’s looks couldn’t have been more different, with Nathalie’s look oozing sexy chic and Sonam’s going down princessville. My winner was Sonam, but I also struggled to set these two apart.

Both Kit and Michiel looked very suave, but I opted for the cool-blue Louis Vuitton suit served up by Michiel in this case.
