Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab Couture – ‘The Homesman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"The Homesman" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Sonam Kapoor made her first appearance on the red carpet during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival for ‘The Homesman’ premiere this evening (May 18) as the representative for L’Oreal India.

Working her magic, Old Hollywood style, the actress was breath-taking in an Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture gown with Chopard jewels.

As gorgeous as it was, I wish she had brought some colour to the red carpet. The weather is beautiful, so why not celebrate it with one of the coral, mustard or lavender gowns from the same collection?

Mini rant aside, she did make me swoon. Perfect from head to toe.

    Omg, she looks so perfect. Everything is perfect here. She is full of perfection man! How can she looks so freaking good? Btw I think the color is totally great.. she wanted the to be real simple and she did here. Anyways that’s just my point of view!

  4. Meet May 19, 2014 at 09:20 #

    She nailed it completely. Best red carpet look so far.

  5. Rajesh May 19, 2014 at 09:02 #

    Sonam Kapoor has lived to people’s expectations. And it is nice to see people from across continents praising her. I must say, elegance is not standing out, but being remembered, and Sonam does that without even trying hard

  6. Sib May 19, 2014 at 08:32 #

    Sonam is really werking that Elie Saab piece. Gosh, she is a stunner in the truest sense of the word. She makes it all seem like a cakewalk. Love the entire look, especially the hair -it gels exceptionally well with the look and gives it the classic aura. This woman can never go wrong, can she?

  7. Smriti May 19, 2014 at 08:28 #

    as usual stunnig & gorgeous! Gosh! looking so beautiful…luv u sona ♥ :-*

  8. Veera May 19, 2014 at 07:59 #

    WOW!!! Sonam totally rocked this!!!!

  9. Atrayee May 19, 2014 at 07:52 #

    Agree about bringing colours but at the same time I think the look which she was trying to channelise gels well with this black gown I mean that charming retro look with that vintage makeup/red lips..all said n done she looks like a graceful swan….so breathtakingly beautiful,she sprinkles a rare aura of grace and innocence which very few girls of todays generation has!

  10. Anjali May 19, 2014 at 07:27 #

    She looks breathtaking in that elie saab gown.Ahh so gorgeous. knocking it out of park once again. SIMPLYY AHMAZINGGGGGG! Credit goes to rhea and her team as well. Thumbs up.

  12. shubham arora May 19, 2014 at 07:16 #

    WOW she looks. Always nail the red carpet!

  13. Dina May 19, 2014 at 06:57 #

    Sonam looks extremely pretty. just exquisite. She has the perfect body type, stance, etc. to pull this off. 10 on 10. Her and Elie Saab, match made in fashion heaven 🙂

  14. sam May 19, 2014 at 06:12 #

    Lovee! I actually envisioned Aishwarya Rai (who is delayed but I think is scheduled to make an appearance) wearing something from this collection (and I still hope she does), but Sonam looks absolutely lovely! I did not expect her to wear Elie Saab, but she rocks it, as usual!

  15. Gemma rockets May 19, 2014 at 05:52 #

    I’m imagining her dress in the colour of her lipstick and I’d love to see that… But as someone who’s still a bit of a goth I think black is appropriate anywhere! And she is just stunning.

  16. May May 19, 2014 at 05:20 #

    Beautiful girl. Knocks the ball out of the park. BDOTW. Definitely

  17. Yasmin May 19, 2014 at 05:16 #

    She makes Cannes fun. What a gorgeous look. She walks the red carpet again tonight. I’m guessing she’d be wearing something from her country today.

  18. Elina May 19, 2014 at 04:45 #

    Very very beautiful. BDOTY worthy. I think she walks the red carpet again tonight? Is that correct FC?

  19. EmmaWoodhouse May 19, 2014 at 03:54 #

    LOVELY! I am so happy at the sighting of a big, gorgeous, glamorous gown–yeah, if it had been in a color it would have been perfect but I still love it! 🙂 another BDOTY contender.

  20. Prudence May 19, 2014 at 02:56 #

    once again I will stand alone because this is truly not as amazing to me. Perhaps its the color and the back which I simply cannot get past. Diane Kruger gave us a much more memorable moment in a similar dior gown.

  21. MaddyEliza May 19, 2014 at 01:21 #

    I was counting on Sonam to deliver and oh my goodness she did. Stunning! Can’t wait to see more looks from her. She is just beautiful!

    I’m not missing anything AT ALL from this look. She is sensational here. Absolute perfection. It might just be my favorite look from Cannes so far. She usually dazzles in bold colors and unexpected silhouettes, but this blows me away.

  25. Marcel May 18, 2014 at 23:22 #

    I fail to see all the beauty which left most of people here in awe.
    Perhaps if the dress was in another color I would like better.

  26. Faye May 18, 2014 at 23:08 #

    This is so boring!!! I’m tired of Elie Saab, to wear his gowns is an easy way to look pretty, but only that. There are more ways to impact with daring looks, this is Just plain vanilla in my opinion.

  27. AJ May 18, 2014 at 21:35 #

    Absolutely stunning!

  28. from-chitown May 18, 2014 at 21:24 #

    She looks gorgeous and shes carrying the dress very well. But i would have liked it better in a color other than black. She clearly got the memo about ” go big or go home.”

  29. Joy May 18, 2014 at 21:06 #

    You are seriously killing me!!!! Sonam was my best dressed last year at Cannes, this is DEFINITELY another stunning Cannes gown for her. BDOTY contender for me. I think this is my favorite Elie Saab in a while. Don’t get me wrong, I love his designs & he’s one of my gown favorites but I’ve been kinda bored and not as wowed by his looks lately. This is SPECTACULAR. Somam’s beauty is breathtaking in this gown. Love. Love. Love

    Thank you FC for your wonderful posts!

      ITA… Diosa, divina!!!

    • Rajesh May 19, 2014 at 08:55 #

      Isnt it nice seeing designers from across the globe pouring in praises for Sonam Kapoor? Yes, because she sets examples for other fashionistas around, now and then, and for Bollywood in particular, she’s THAT reference point on whom every other actress tries to live up to. She knows what her dress speaks. After all fashion is a reflection of her personality

      • Ahot May 20, 2014 at 09:22 #

        Beautifuly stated, dear. 🙂

  30. amy May 18, 2014 at 20:52 #

    she sure loves big dresses. this one isn’t blowing my mind

  31. Florencia May 18, 2014 at 20:47 #

    I don’t really like the dress on her.
    It also reminds me (a little!) of the dress Taylor Swift wore to the CMA Awards last year

  32. Navi May 18, 2014 at 20:27 #

    She makes it look so easy

  33. Daisy May 18, 2014 at 20:21 #

    I don’t like. Boxy and weight too heavy feel. Feels like funeral in procession.

  34. sandra May 18, 2014 at 20:02 #

    she is so so beautiful..knocked it out of the park!!

  35. perry May 18, 2014 at 20:00 #

    Go big or go home…she really brought it didnt she…Spectacular …how beautiful is she…heart stopping look..

  36. Christine May 18, 2014 at 19:59 #

    This is Major!!!!! She looks fabulous

  37. Rebecca Z May 18, 2014 at 19:59 #

    I am clearly in the minority, but I don’t really like this look. Perhaps it is her stance, but the bodice immediately made me think of a bib. I find this just too overwhelming and overly structured. She is carrying it well, but it has no movement–it’s like walking around in a cutout.

  38. rebecca May 18, 2014 at 19:57 #

    i think the best dressed of the festival…the hair and makeup is just perfect…

    in love!!

  39. sophie May 18, 2014 at 19:55 #

    This would be perfect for an evening Venice Film Festival premiere, but for Cannes, we want color with the big glamourous drama. So I totally agree. But it’s still gorgeous.

  40. Dil May 18, 2014 at 19:54 #

    Absolutely divine! She is one beautiful lady

  41. justme May 18, 2014 at 19:53 #

    Is it me or is her skirt sitting too high? It looks lower and better on the model.

  42. Elisa May 18, 2014 at 19:53 #

    She is exquisite… A definite Bdotw contender….

  43. Lizet May 18, 2014 at 19:52 #

    Drama, drama drama¡¡ lo amo

  44. ava May 18, 2014 at 19:50 #

    I have issues with the back of the dress, the details i must say. dont know what to make of this yet.

    • dee May 18, 2014 at 22:05 #

      Really don’t like the back either.

  45. Danielle May 18, 2014 at 19:50 #


  46. Rahul May 18, 2014 at 19:49 #

    FC, it’s Spring 2014 Couture. Best Cannes 2014 look yet.

  47. Yeliz May 18, 2014 at 19:49 #

    Oh. My. God. My jaw just dropped. As much as I don’t prefer black on the Cannes red carpet, I can’t help but fall in love with this look when it’s so perfect. She looks spectacular. Just WOW!!

  48. Aby May 18, 2014 at 19:48 #

    Agree on the color. But she makes this look work and how. Gorgeous she looks. very princessy.

  49. Papiki May 18, 2014 at 19:47 #

    Breathtaking! A pop of colour could have made this magical! 9/10 as a result!

  50. Alina May 18, 2014 at 19:44 #

    I agree about the colour, but that’s a small issue when she looks so gorgeous.

    • Hassi May 19, 2014 at 08:33 #

      Sonam kapoor = Trendsetter , Her legacy at cannes is just Magic,Stylish,shining & unbeatable
