Sonam Kapoor is known for her exclusive dressing sense and fashion styles. In a recent ceremony of Red Carpet of Cannes Film Festival she was seen donning Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 couture gown which according to the designers was one of the most notable outfits of the evening.
People present on the locations of this event were spellbound to see the trimmed figure of Sonam who was once too plump. But on this evening she only looked gorgeous but attracted many eyeballs for her choice of form-fitted net gown and teamed up with Chopard earrings, an Amrapali ring and peep-toe heels by Salvatore Ferragamo.
The designers were also all praises for her outfit at Cannes. According to Nil the owner of Dev R Nil label and the designer behind Sonam’s dress for a press conference at Cannes, Sonam made a bold choice by choosing this outfit which is poles apart from the typical Indian sensibilities. He says, “She has gone for a very classic and vintage look. I think it was quite a brave choice considering such an architectural draping and completely non-embroidered gown which was quite contrary to the Indian sensibilities. The gown was beautiful and well-constructed, highlighting her butt. Also her hair-do and make up was kept very minimal keeping in mind her face and bone structure.”
“She also wore a one piece shift gown which was very beautiful, and on another occasion, a lovely polka dotted silk sari with a shirt inspired blouse designed by good friend Masaba Gupta. She is a style icon in herself and she proved it once again,” he added.
For another designer Aparna Vohra she was the highest scorer of the evening who left behind Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Mallika Sherawat by her dressing sense. “The gown was a couture piece of modern inspired artwork and Sonam looked very chic in it. She is tall and that helps her carry the gown with a long trail with ease. She loves to experiment and here too she scored the highest in comparison to her counterparts,” said Vohra.
The 25-year-old grabbed much attention in the gown and designer Varija Bajaj says it was because of technical flaw in the gown.
“From a distance I liked her overall bold look which she carried with great style for her first appearance. Technically the outfit was badly finished with raw seams of net and not so twisted hip clutcher. She did her best in choosing the outfit, but the designer should be blamed for the technical faults. She could have also demanded a better finishing from the designer,” said Bajaj.
“If the designer could have used a small hole net than a big hole, it would have looked more graceful. In short, good design and style by the designer, but technically flawed execution,” she added.
