Sonam Kapoor In Hyun Mi Nielsen – HT Most Stylish Awards 2018

The HT Most Stylish Awards annual ceremony took place at Mumbai’s Yash Raj Studios on Wednesday (January 24), with one Bollywood’s most stylist stars, Sonam Kapoor.

As we all know, Sonam likes to experiment with fashion; it’s trait that sets her apart from most stars in Mumbai and has helped solidify her as a fashion icon.

I have a feeling some will find it hard to warm to this Hyun Mi Nielsen Fall 2017 Couture dress.

In principle I like the dress, but I feel like the train is a tad redundant. It looks like a table runner without appearing to have any real functionality when it comes to this look at all.

Green Aquazzura sandals and a diamond choker completed her look.

    My BDOTY of a few years back, sadly is now already my WDOTY of 2018, nothing can top this mess.

    WDOTY contender.

    Based on this outfit, I’m going to guess she didn’t win the award…

    Things I hate about this look:
    1. The fit is awful. Makes her look 100m wide.
    2. The material is so cheap looking.
    3. The hem!
    4. The red lips with the green shoes.
    5. The choker.

    Basically everything.

    I agree with the others, its bad. Its got ugliness all around (the dress, not her of course) but what I despise most is the frayed hemline. Its driving me crazy!

    What a hideous dress.

    Such an irony this is worn to an event with “most stylish” in it’s title.

    That tumorous cocoon also known as sleeve can get a pass i guess, so does the unfinished hem (again, I suppose) but the finishing of the train is absolutely unforgiving. If you’re going for demi-couture you should NEVER have a train that REALLY looks like a table runner. PAINFUL

    And the saddest thing is that she is indeed a very stylish and graceful woman

    I laughed seeing this photo. What a ridiculous Project Runway failure. I could do better than this.

    This is a terrible, terrible dress. It’s like every cast-off Belle Disney costume was vomited into one.

    WDOTY possibility — This is what happens when you try too hard to be fashion forward. Even so, Kudos to her for trying something different but different does not mean that you have to go for absurdities like a silly train, a huge puffy single sleeve, unhemmed edges, poor fit and an ugly color. Also, the ankle strap shoes are awful.

    Project Runway – unconventional materials challenge – made from yellow tarp that till recently covered dead bodies

    I’ll join the majority; the only redeemable things about this look are the shoes and her pretty face. Not the kind of avant-garde I’m into.

    I’m not a fan of the gown, but I think someone like Yara Shahidi could’ve pulled it off. It’s not for Sonam with her glamorous diamonds.

  15. SilentVisitor February 1, 2018 at 1:37 pm #

    This has WDOTY potential written all over it…. Absolutely hideous dress; she looks super wide in it

    i am kind of on board with the look book pic, but it does not translate onto the red carpet.

    I do not think this was the dress to accessories with nice high heels and diamonds, if at all it should have kept a bit of gritty street look feeling.

    So it’s a no for me.

    Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

    I’m going out on a limb and saying I like this.

    Firstly, it’s a fashion/style event, so something a bit different fits the bill.

    Secondly, I rather like the imagination and construction skills behind that oversized puffy sleeve morphing into a train – it takes two current red carpet trends, the single sleeve and the train on a shorter dress and turns them into something new – and the asymmetric raw hemline helps balance the focus with the rest of the dress

    Thirdly, I like Sonam’s presentation – she’s got the accessories, hair and makeup exactly right and she’s giving it attitude.

    So it’s a big thumb’s up from me – I come here for a dose of the fashion-forward as well as for pretty pictures of good looking people in conventional clothes and Catherine’s insightful commentaries.

    I think this is pretty objectively a total fail. It’s a craft project, not clothing.

  20. Martin February 1, 2018 at 12:00 pm #

    This is unspeakably bad. The concept is terrible and the execution is hideous. There is no-one on this earth that could make this abomination work.

    • Carla February 3, 2018 at 12:10 am #

      Totally agree! I hate everything about this dress

  21. Eni February 1, 2018 at 11:30 am #

    Ugh. No! WDOTY…

    What an ugly sack of crAp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Kimma February 1, 2018 at 10:55 am #

    This is so so bad! So bad.

  24. Charlotte February 1, 2018 at 10:45 am #

    This is awful!
    The fabric looks cheap, the cut of the dress makes her look way wider than she is, the sleeve and the train look like they forgot to cut the roller of fabric and the fringes at the end are the perfect final touch of such a messy dress!

    After our first BDOTY with Lupita, we have our first WDOTY !
