Sonam Kapoor x Roberto Cavalli. India’s couture ambassador meets leopard print king.

Italian designer Roberto Cavalli recently opened his first shop in India with a red carpet event that drew New Delhi’s society crowd and a few Bollywood celebs too. Our eyes were on Cavalli’s Indian BFF, Sonam Kapoor, who accompanied him at the event, wearing an intricately embroidered black lace Roberto Cavalli gown in a look that oozed retro Hollywood glamour.

We thought Sonam looked divine in her black gown accented with minimal accessories and red lips, but other B-town actors who caught our eye in Cavalli creations included Sushmita Sen (above, photo left) in an animal print caftan (wish she had left the necklace at home), and Kangana Ranaut (above, photo left). Kangana looked pretty in her royal blue gown, but we thought the look was more suited for an awards show than a store opening.

So much animal print!

Desperately Seeking Sonam? We’re a little obsessed with Sonam Kapoor’s sartorial choices. Okay, a lot. Read the series here.
