“There are a lot of us to talk about when it comes to acting,but at the risk of sounding immodest,I am the only one among Indian actors whose style and fashion choices are talked about,so if it is a distinction,I am happy about it,” said Sonam Kapoor last week while at Cannes. This was to film writer Anupama Chopra on the latter’s weekly TV show Front Row With Anupamaa Chopra on Star World. Chopra had asked her an oft- repeated question: how do you take to only being discussed for your clothes and style and never about your acting?
Sonam’s answer was immodest alright but she underlined her style elitism with two appearances yesterday on the final day of the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival. One in a red strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress with a full skirt and a very eye catching head piece for the Cannes closing dinner. Don’t miss the details of the neckpiece and the fuschia lipstick (with maroon,fuschia looks killer nice). One of the best I have ever seen of — Marilyn Monroe meets Sonam Kapoor!
For the red carpet,she wore a black Alexander McQueen worn with black Roger Vivier pumps and Chopard jewellery,her hair loosely worn and very retro. This look was styled by her sister Rhea Kapoor and it trended on Twitter almost instantly after Sonam stepped out looking as if she were born with a fashion spoon in her mouth,her karmic purpose being dressing up.
