Beautiful people from around the world have descended on the French seaside town of Cannes, for its 65th namesake film festival, and we’re on the prowl for a Sonam Kapoor sighting. 

The first few days at Cannes offered a couple of Sonam Kapoor sightings, where she was seen twice in Gucci. We finally have a more glam shot of Sonam Kapoor, taken during a L’Oreal Paris photo shoot at the 65th Cannes Film Festival.

Sonam Kapoor

We’re not sure whose dress she’s wearing, or more importantly, who furnished that beautiful necklace. But we can tell you how to recreate her beautiful makeup – see our story here.

Sonam is scheduled to walk the closing ceremony red carpet and the official screening of, Therese Desqueyroux. We can’t wait to see what her stylist has picked out for her. She’s a friend of Manish Arora, so will it be some Paco Rabanne, more Gucci or perhaps another Jean Paul Gaultier gown?


Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto caught our eye in this Paco Rabanne ensemble, designed by Manish Arora, one of our favourites to show at Paris Fashion Week. The bright white dress with chainmail detailing was a standout piece, and our favourite pick of Freida’s Cannes outfit choices from the festival so far. See what she wore on the first two days of the festival here.

Freida was spotted in another Paco Rabanne dress by Manish Arora from the AW 2012 collection (below). The photo was posted by actress and L’Oreal model, Eva Longoria (middle right). Between Jane Fonda (right), Freida and Eva, Freida takes our vote as best dressed.
