Sonam is killing it at Cannes

Sonam is killing it at Cannes

Sonam Kapoor’s journey on the red carpet – then and now

ARTICLE BY : Tamanna Ullah and Abha Shah


Our summer issue cover girl Sonam Kapoor has hit the Cannes red carpet, and after Deepika and Aishwarya’s turn posing for the pappazzi, we're in awe of what India’s biggest fashion icon pulled off this year.

But before we check out her 2017 look, let’s take a trip down memory lane at her past ensembles.

Can't wait? Scroll straight to the bottom of the post to see her latest red carpet look.

Debuting at the festival in the South of France, Sonam throws some serious shapes in this stunning JPG monochrome gown.

Showing us how dark Gothica is done in an exquisite nude and net piece.

Flirty and feminine in florals, we love this look on Sonam. Rather perfect for summer brides too, wouldn’t you say?

Showcasing the imitable design talents of India in an ivory Anamika Khanna sari, sharpened with a statement naath and gold embroidered jacket.

Back in Italy’s finest, this is the time Sonam set off fire alarms* when walking the red carpet, because that lace number is smokin’.

 *may be a slight exaggeration.

Why mess with a winning formula? Once again wearing an Anamika Khanna couture piece, this sari is a fabulous twist on a classic.

This was a bit of a Marmite moment for Miss Kapoor – some of us loved it, some, not so much. But what’s life without a few risks?


With her million-crore smile, Queen Sonam claims the red carpet as hers, and hers alone. In royal blue, natch.

Just when we thought she couldn’t get any more regal, Sonam returned last year with an all-white, half-cape, single-shouldered, full Goddess ensemble.

Can’t. Stop. Looking. At. That. Train.

A softer look, but no less dramatic, thanks to yet another incredible train. A wed-worthy picture of perfection from the award-winning Neerja actress.

Pretty in pink, Sonam’s first red carpet look this year made it clear she isn’t about to give up her fashion Queen status at Cannes without a fight. This gorgeous Elie Saab gown is strong and soft at the same time, combining a body-hugging silhouette with yards of flowing chiffon and gently glimmering sequins.
We think there’s something superhero-like about the look, which suits Wonder Woman Sonam.

Sonam dons another Oscar-worthy creation from the house of Elie Saab, this time in shimmering gold. Proving all that is gold does glitter – especially if you’re Sonam Kapoor. This time she wore her hair down and styled jewels by Chopard.
