Sonam Alert! We’re not the only ones who have been watching this Bollywood princepessa’s journey to international style queen.
Ms. Kapoor is Bollywood’s fashion princess (as we’ve reported here, here, and here), and girlfriend did not disappoint at the recent Paris Couture Shows. With invites to Jean Paul Gaultier and Elie Saab (following a special invite to Karl Lagerfeld’s colonial India-inspired Pre-Fall 2012 Chanel show last November), she can do no wrong in our eyes. (Read our story on her outfit at the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Show that same day, here).
Sonam wowed us with her outfit at the Elie Saab show this week (seen above): a gorgeous pale pink net sari by Deepti Pruthi, paired with a stunning jacket by Elie Saab and what looked like Punjabi mojhe/shoes (see photo below), but no confirmation on that yet. We love because: she has an old world glamour to her, reminiscent of black-and-white era actresses Nutan, Madhubala and Nargis, and she chose to go bold in Indian instead of a dress. She totally stands out in the crowd and in front row. xo.
More reasons to love her? Her candid interviews. In a recent interview with the Times of India, she discussed her facial hair (!), why she can’t wear a bikini, health problems, and how her dad used to make fun of her as an overweight child. We love that she’s not one of those actors who claims to never exercise and just be naturally petite and wonderful. Blah.
Back to style. Prior to galavanting across Paris, Sonam was seen driving up to a special Bollywood-infused party honouring Oprah Winfrey in Mumbai. She was seen (below left) in a sari by Tarun Tahiliani, who also designed Oprah’s sari that night.
And we can’t forget, at the end of December, Sonam created social media buzz when Spice Girls alumnus/designer Victoria Beckham tweeted how fabulous Sonam looked wearing a dress from the Victoria Beckham SS 2012 collection.
Still Desperately Seeking Sonam. We wish we had her closet!
