Sonam Kapoor stuns Cannes in Anamika Khanna sari


Sonam Kapoor has established herself as a youth style icon in India. She is one of the busiest and highest paid celebrity brand endorsers in Bollywood. Her fame reached to such a level that the world’s biggest beauty product made her one of their brand ambassadors. She represented the brand at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and since then has become a regular. This year Aishwariya Rai missed Cannes due to a flight delay. The presence of Ash seems to take the spotlight away from other Indian Celebs. Sonam in the past has expressed her irritation over the fact. Therefore this year’s Cannes turned out to be a good opportunity for Sonam to showcase her fashion sense and so far she has utilized it brilliantly.

She had only two days in her hand but was scheduled to make no less than six appearances. Her first appearance at the 2014 Cannes was at a red carpet event. She stunned everybody in a black vintage couture gown. It was designed by Lebanese designer Ellie Saab. After that everyone was eager to see how she follows it up and she didn’t disappoint.  From the Hollywood gown look she made a turnaround and went ethnic. She was attending the L’Oreal event where she was seen in a couture net sari. The fabulous pale pink colored sari was designed by Anamika Khanna. She carefully picked the accessories to go with the sari- a big neck piece from her mother Sunita Kapoor’s Collection, Jimmy Choo shoes and a Ferragamo clutch. She kept her hair open which looked simple yet elegant.  Altogether she looked extremely beautiful and proved why she is called a ‘fashionista’.  But to the delight of fashion buffs, she did not stop there.

Sometime later she appeared in another event, a Chopard party. This time she went western again and wore a strapless lilac chiffon couture gown. The gown was again from the designer Ellie Saab. Her look was complimented by tight pony hair, Ferragamo clutch (not the previous one and Chopard necklace.)

Her final appearance for the busy day was at a photo shoot. This time too she went for Ellie Saab creation who is clearly her favorite international designer at the moment.  She looked real classy in a flowy long red net gown. She also had a half flower shaped earrings which perfectly matched with the gown. There is not slightest doubt that her Cannes tour this year was ‘super hit’.
