Sonam Kapoor's Radical Sari At Cannes
Bollywood acrtress Sonam Kapoor has mastered her red carpet evant -garde style, be it in India or French Reviera. Before her solo appearance as Bollywood's official representative at the opening ceremony of Cannes Film Festival, we knew Sonam had something up her sleeves as far as fasion is concerned. An evant-gardist, Sonam has the confidence to pull off any look, and she is slowly emerging as the new style chamaleon in India. She wore a delicate old-world white and gold lace creation by Anamika Khanna. The saree was beautiful but the long trailing barouque-effect jacket added drama to the entire costume. Her flamboyant look was complete with a huge nose-ring, dark- maroon lips and dramatic winged eyes. The oversized nose ring and her jacket were rather distracting. Aishwarya wore an offwhite georgette chkan sari with sequins and zardosi borders worn with a multicolored silk embroidered zardosi blouse. Must add that her baby flab also played a role to spoil her sari look. If any one had doubt about Vidya Balan's nationality, sher erased it for ever. Desi girl Vidya wore her indianess on her sleeve in a monochrome, embroiderted outfit by Sabyasachi Mucjerjee. She accessorosed it with a heavy gold necklace and bindi. But she just over did it with the veil draped over her head. Her covering head was disappointing for many. Aishwarya's style statement at Cannes has always received a lot of flak. But Sonam Kapoor scored high on style sense from her first appearance itself. For us it is the Sonam's elegance that outdoes the rest.
