Yay! White seemed to be the 30-year-old actress' go-to colour for evening events, as she looked ravishing in a white ensemble by Ralph and Russo yet again for the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday evening. The exclusive column gown by the British couture house brought out the Bollywood fashionista's stunning silhouette, ending in a short train. The floral netted long cape gave the whole ensemble a very delicate touch. She paired the gown with a pair of Ferragamo stilletos, and some bling on her fingers.

To complement the dress, Sonam's stylist Rhea Kapoor opted for a simple and elegant princess-like make-up of light pink blushes, eyeshadow and lips, twirling her hair in a neat little, stylish bun. Accessories were restricted to a stud-rock earrings and a floral diamond neckpiece by Bvlgari. (Source: @icannesbylorealparis/Instagram)

She teamed this with shoes by Christian Louboutin, with her hair tied in a neat bun and summed up with the look with cat-eye glares. Since it was a day event, Sonam kept the accessories simple with a pristine white nail paint to adorn the hands, and cute stud earrings and matching ear trinkets.

Adding a dash of colour was a bright pink lip colour, and double-lined pink eye pencil to give a flirty look to the eyes.

When it comes to Bollywood's tryst with Cannes fashion, two names shine heads and heels over the rest — Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor. The former is a veteran, pulling off looks that are classic, while the latter is known for her experiments, and is widely hailed as THE Indian celeb fashionista. And she has just shown us all why.

Styled by Rhea Kapoor, Sonam let the Ralph & Russo sari-inspired dress do all the talking, keeping accessories to a bare minimum — stud earrings and white-rock ring. For her make-up, the white highlights at the edges of the kohled-eyes accentuated the drama of the overall look, a simple nude pink lip colour acted as a balance, and the no-nonsense straight hair gave her an aura of sophisticated severity. We don't care if it's been called a roomali roti by the social media, we love it! (Source: AP)

The 30-year-old slayed hearts in this dramatic white gown with an embroidered cape, with a matching embroidered choker. The design is reminiscent of Ralph & Russo's Spring/Summer 2016 collection, but with the cape running over one shoulder and a counter-train attached to the waist, this particular piece may have been custom-made.
