Sonam Kapoor is undoubtedly Bollywood’s leading fashionista, in every sense of the word. And well, it isn’t wrong to talk about her every time we mention anything related to fashion. She can carry anything and everything with sheer elegance and class. From her chic airport looks and gorgeous ethnic ensembles to her Cannes gowns and her wedding outfits, Sonam perhaps brings her own touch to whatever she wears.
Born to Anil Kapoor and Sunita on June 9, 1985, Sonam rings in her 33rd birthday today. Now as the Neerja actress turns a year older, let’s take a look at some of her stunning style statements in the recent past:
Vision in white
The actress attended the 14th annual Dubai International Film Festival looking her glamorous best in an Ashi Studio ensemble. Styled by sister Rhea Kapoor, her off-shoulder flowy gown was paired with an overcoat, which gave a royal and elegant touch to her appearance.
Sonam attended the IWC Watches 150th Birthday celebrations in Switzerland and looked effortless in a dusty rose Bouguessa pantsuit. Her outfit, featuring a blazer, flared cropped trousers and a matching overcoat, was paired with statement earrings and suede boots. We love her boss-lady look.
At the 125th celebration of the watch brand ICW Schaffhausen, the fashion icon wore a pink Rosie Assoulin outfit. The ensemble, which featured a ruffled bralette, voluminous skirt and matching jacket, gave us perfect Barbie vibes. We love how she carries off the bright pink colour with such grace.
Sonam attended the We The Women Asia Summit in Mumbai wearing a monochrome attire with balloon sleeves and we must say, she looked fabulous. Her power-dressing in the black pant-suit from Simon Porte Jacquemus had a wrap-around blazer. Stylist Rhea Kapoor paired it up with multiple rings and a pair of silver hoops. Nude makeup and winged eyeliner rounded off her look.
For her wedding with Anand Ahuja on May 8, 2018, Sonam opted for a traditional red lehenga by Anuradha Vakil, with a detailed lotus flower work and looked absolutely gorgeous. She completed her look with antique pearl and gold jewellery that also included a Guttapusalu style long necklace. Her hair was tied in a beautiful bun with a ‘gajra’ around it and the matching ‘chura’ and ‘kaleere’ made her look nothing but divine.But it was the antique maathapatti by Amrapali that stole the show.
The Cannes Affair
Dressed in a custom-made lehenga by her designer friends Ralph and Russo, Sonam’s 71st Cannes Film Festival ensemble was nothing short than a fairytale. Styled by sister Rhea Kapoor and Deep Kailey, her ivory crop top was paired with a voluminous skirt which had a train. Her outfit also had a drape detail on one sleeve that resembled a dupatta and earrings from Chopard rounded off her look. The jadau choti or paranda was the key highlight of her look.
Shimi Shimi Ya
For promotions of Veere Di Wedding during the IPL 2018 on a leading sports channel, Sonam opted for a metallic silver blazer and skirt by DVF and paired it with a black bustier. She rounded off her look with Nike sneakers at her husband’s brand VegNonVeg with earrings from Anmol jewellers. A sleek ponytail, minimal makeup and smokey eyes complimented her look.
For a recent event, Sonam was seen in a Gilt Smock Jumper and Gilt Sari Dress from Rashmi Varma. The handwoven chanderi ensemble with a smocked ‘pallu’ was paired with earrings from Apala by Sumit and bangles and rings from Amrapali Jewels. Styled by sister Rhea Kapoor, Sonam opted for matching pumps by designer friends Ralph and Russo.
GLITTERATI and glam
Wearing a blue chiffon skirt gown by Sophie Et Voila with sequined oversized sleeves detail, Sonam certainly looked stunning as she attended Natasha Poonwalla's bash. Styled by Rhea Kapoor, her dramatic gown look was rounded off with a sparkly choker from Gehna Jewellers, a red lip with hair tied back in a neat bun.
Last but not the least, Sonam opted for a pre draped saree with a backless blouse and pleated cape detail for the trailer launch of her upcoming film Sanju. Styled by Rhea Kapoor, her look was rounded off with soft curls and clean makeup while earrings from Amrapali Jewels accentuated her look.
We wish the diva a very Happy Birthday.
