FOLLOW US:

While all are swooning over Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Cinderella look at Cannes 2017, another B-town beauty Sonam Kapoor has taken off to grace the red carpet of the gala event at the French Riviera. Sonam is known to earn brownie points for her bold, unique and spot-on sartorial choices ever since she stepped in Bollywood. And each time Sonam, who will be representing cosmetic brand L’Oreal Paris at the fest, steps out, she takes her fashion game a notch higher.

The diva seldom goes wrong with her fashion choices and it is her flawless sense of style, confident outlook and undaunted personality that wins over thousands of hearts each time she makes an appearance. Be it her choice of outfits during film promotions or high-end designer garments for red carpet appearances, Sonam’s uber stylish looks have always made headlines. When the fashionista made her debut appearance at Cannes red carpet in 2011, she was lauded for her choice of outfits and for pulling it off with confidence and panache.

So as the cameras are rolling, we’ll take a trip down memory lane with the beautiful Sonam Kapoor and all her fashion moments at Cannes red carpet. A week ahead of her appearance, Sonam too shared her previous looks from the fest on her social media account.

Sonam bedazzled everyone at the Cannes red carpet in a dramatic, Ralph & Russo custom gown in pristine white hue. She looked nothing less than an angel, dressed in an all-white outfit which had peek-a-boo cutouts and an embroidered trail.

In yet another appearance during the same year, Sonam again sported a Ralph and Russo number- a silk creper column gown which was teamed with a cape. The cape was laden with the feather blooms at the shoulders and the train added a dramatic effect to the ensemble.

Sonam is known to show up in her stylish best every time and that year too Sonam did not disappoint when she walked the Cannes red carpet in a blue Ralph and Russo couture gown. Sonam opted for Chopard sapphire and diamond earrings, blue Zanotti sandals, side swept tresses with soft curls.

Sonam showed up in a yellow, feathery outfit for her second appearance the same year, which received a lot of criticism from the fashion critics and onlookers for sporting a rather dull and unattractive ensemble for the esteemed event. In fact, her dress served as fodder for social media users and Internet users created endless memes on this particular designer wear.

This year Sonam turned the Cannes red carpet into a fashion runway and wowed everyone as she walked the red carpet in a black Ellie Saab ball gown. Sonam looked like a dream in her ensemble as she posed for the shutterbugs at the event.

In her second appearance, Sonam turned into a desi diva wrapped in a blue pink sheer saree with a caplet designed by Anamika Khanna. She completed her look with a pearl and gold choker, smokey eyes and nude lips.

One of Sonam’s best looks at the Cannes red carpet was her floral strapless Dolce and Gabana printed dress was a show stealer. Side swept hair left open in soft waves, no accessories except for a statement necklace and minimal makeup looked just perfect.

This was probably one of the best years for Sonam and for her fashion lovers too since both the outfits that Sonam sported at the fest made headlines. While her strapless printed dress was loved by one and all, her traditional, lace saree teamed with an embroidered long jacket made heads turn. Sonam’s bold lip colour and nose ring, of course, deserves a special mention as it made her stand out of the crowd. One of Sonam’s best looks at the Cannes red carpet was her floral strapless Dolce and Gabana printed dress was a show stealer.

You know the saying ‘the first impression is the last impression’, well it is certainly true, your first impression always leaves a lasting impression. Hence for Sonam, her Cannes red carpet debut was crucial. Sonam received rave views for her debut red carpet appearance. She became an instant favorite when she walked and posed for photographers in Jean Paul Gaultier vintage one shoulder dress. A dramatic hairdo, Amrapali ring, Chopard earrings and ferrangamo shoes just completed her look. She looked gorgeous as ever wearing a lovely smile.
