It is a no brainer that Sonam K Ahuja is a bonafide fashionista. Known for her regal and sometimes edgy sartorial choices, she has been defying stereotypes and setting new norms at the Cannes red carpet since 2011 when she made her first ever appearance. Every time she made an appearance at the film festival, she has created a splash. The diva did not disappoint us this time year either.
She made her first appearance at the 72nd Festival de Cannes yesterday, looking ravishing in a voluminous red gown. The Valentino gown made her look like a dream. The loose silhouette, the billowing sleeves and the multi-tiered skirt rendered her a royal look. She teamed it up with a hair of red heels. She tied her hair in a ruffled braid adorned with flowers that added a lot of vintage drama to her look. She kept her look minimal to focus all the attention on her bright hued gown. She donned a pair of stud earrings by Chopard. If grace is not her middle name, then we don't know what is!
Her next appearance was in a navy blue purple gown designed by Elie Saab. But what made this flared gown stand apart were an extravagant bow and a cape that came down to her wrist to form a sleeve. She sported a sleek side-parted hair, nude makeup and a pair of diamond stud earrings by Chopard. We must say that the Neerja actor looked breathtaking in blue. That million dollar smile and the twinkle in her eyes worked wonders!
In her third look, she channelized her inner Maharani in a stunning gold and ivory Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla couture saree inspired gown for the Chopard's Lanuitdesrosis dinner party. She looked mesmerising in an off-shoulder gold sequined embellished ensemble. She also donned an organza gold veil-cum-cape with a zari border that she suspended to her hair. The embellished choker and her dramatic sleeve on her left shoulder extended to form a trail left us smitten. The intricately embroidered body-fitting ensemble gets thumbs up from us! She sported smoky eyes and nude brown lips and a vintage hairdo that we loved. Sonam was styled by her sister, Rhea Kapoor.
