Haute or Not: Sonam Kapoor’s Best and Worst Fashion Moments
Sonam Kapoor is considered to be India’s style icon and has really made a mark for herself in the industry. We bring her style into focus round up some of her best and worst looks
Sonam Kapoor is a name that needs no introduction. The actress has most certainly made her mark in the industry and has become a force to be reckoned with. She is Bollywood’s ultimate style star and with her edgy looks and bold sartorial choices, she has left no stone unturned to prove that she is ahead of everyone in the fashion game. Her fashion forward sense of style has led her to become a global style icon and with one look after another, she continues to serve major style inspiration on a regular basis.
She is also recgonised for her stellar acting skills in a number of films, including Khoobsurat and Veere Di Wedding. Sonam Kapoor tied the knot with her long time beau, Anand Ahuja last summer and pictures from the fun-filled wedding made rounds on social media. The Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Esa Laga actress is also an avid user of social media and often takes to her Instagram account to share glimpses of her life with her fans and followers.
Sonam Kapoor has made headlines this year for all her sartorial choices and made a major statement at the International Cannes Film Festival. Pictures of all her looks often make rounds on social media and go viral amongst her fans and followers. Whether she opts for a desi look or a quirky western look, the starlet always leaves heads turning. But there are also times when she has sported some of the most questionable looks, which begs the question, what was she thinking?
Best Fashion Moments
1. Polka Dot Extravaganza
Sonam Kapoor, being one of the most versatile when it comes to style, sported a look that amalgamated eastern and western elements of style. She sported a monochrome Sabyasachi ensemble which featured gold edging and polka dots. She paired it with traditional silver jhumkas and a bindi for a traditional vibe, while adding a briefcase bag and a raincoat which gave it a more modern feel. Definitely one of our top picks from Sonam’s looks.
2. The Unconventional Power Suit
Sonam Kapoor was among the first women in the world to sport an outfit from Rihanna’s Fenty collection last year. She sported a coral power suit in the most unconventional way. Not only was the power suit a baggy fit, but she also teamed it with sneakers and a matching fanny pack. She accessorized with lots of bling and kept her hair tied back in a fuss-free look. This look was totally approved by us.
3. Green With Envy
Sonam Kapoor took to her Instagram feed and shared a series of pictures of herself in a lime green co-ord set and we want to steal the look stat. Sonam Kapoor’s ensemble featured a pair of straight pants and a matching blazer which was belted at the waist. Sonam Kapoor teamed the outfit with a pair of white heels and a pair of quirky heart earrings. Sonam Kapoor rounded off her look with her hair parted to the side and some pink eye shadow to complete the look. She kept the rest of her look minimal and with a side of sass looked chic to boot.
Fashion Faux Pas
1. Print Gone Wrong
There is definitely power in print but not when it goes awfully wrong. The actress rocked a printed coord set which she coupled with a pair of knee-high suede boots. The printed set featured short culottes and an oversized jacket which she buttoned up. She accessorized with some statement silver jhumkas and opted for a rather quirky hairdo. To round off her look, Sonam Kapoor opted for a bold yellow eyelid and nude lips. Overall, a bold look we think but definitely not one the makes the cut for the best look.
2. No Pleats Please
One of Sonam Kapoor’s most recent looks was a brown pleated Ellie Saab ensemble. The outfit was tiered and featured statement sleeves and covered her from head to toe. Not only was the colour too dulling for her complexion, but there were one too many pleats. She teamed the dress with a statement neck piece which featured a thick choker and two layered pieces. The neck piece was accompanied with two matching bracelets and this looks like quite the exciting collaboration. Sonam Kapoor rounded off her look with a loose, unkempt braid, kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude pout. The starlet was most certainly exuding Cleopatra vibes in her latest look but it didn’t really work for us.
3. How Much Pink Is Too Much?
There’s no doubt that a bright hue can take you a long way. But Sonam Kapoor’s look in a bright hued ensemble was a little too much for our Instagram feed. Sonam Kapoor was clad in a bright pink, one-shoulder jumpsuit which features flared bottoms and a statement sleeve on one shoulder. Pay close attention and you can see that the Veere Di Wedding actress had paired her jumpsuit with black pointed heels. To accessorise her look, Sonam Kapoor opted for gold hoop earrings and rings. Sonam Kapoor was given defined brows, a peachy glow and a pink pout. While the look was feminine and good for a girl’s night out, it was leaning more towards the tacky side if you ask us.
After rounding up Sonam Kapoor’s best and worst looks of recent times, it is evident that her style can be described as bold, experimental and versatile. While there are many occasions on which she nails a particular style with much panache, there are also times when she has opted for the most questionable outfits and made us wonder what she was thinking.
