Sonam Kapoor Does An Uh Oh at Cannes 2013

This is by far our least favourite look on Sonam Kapoor at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Sonam wore a Shehlaa Khan lehengha for the L’Oreal Paris red carpet event in Cannes on May 16, 2013. The hair and makeup is great, as usual, but the jewelry, styling and choice of clothing is just wrong. Shehla Khan is Sonam’s friend, and while it’s always nice to support your friends, sometimes you just need to say no. Like now.

We’ve always admired Sonam’s penchant for picking up great pieces by little known designers – the Huemn sari she wore at the L’Oreal Paris photo call or when she wore a polka dot Masaba sari in 2011. But straight talk: we’re not huge fans of Shehlaa Khan’s saris and lehenghas.


Desperately Seeking Sonam is an ode to Indian actress Sonam Kapoor’s style. The ongoing series tracks Sonam’s drool-worthy wardrobe around the world.
