Sonam Kapoor is the ultimate style star of Bollywood and her unique sense of style and sartorial choices have led her to become a global style icon. She made headlines this year when she made an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival sporting some rather edgy looks. She had quite the summer in Japan with husband Anand Ahuja and has had her hands full with quite a few projects as of late. She recently saw the release of her much-anticipated film, The Zoya Factor, which marked her return to the big screen after Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga.
For the promotions of her film, Sonam Kapoor was sporting an array of fashion forward looks and upped the style quotient all around. Whether the actress is headed out for a lunch date or grabbing a bite for dinner, or whether she is making an appearance at an event, gracing the red carpet or jetting off on her next flight, this starlet is bound to leave us spell bound. From her recent bohemian chic look to her bold power suits and her traditional desi attire, this actress leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the art of dressing well.
And so, while scrolling through her Instagram feed (which we do regularly for our daily dose of style inspo) we came across three desi looks which Sonam Kapoor rocked over the past few weeks. It has become hard to decide whether we love Sonam Kapoor in her bold fashion-savvy western looks or whether we love her when she channels her inner desi girl. And so, we decided to decode three of her most recent desi looks which are major style goals.
The Khoobsurat actress recently took to her Instagram page and shared a series of pictures of herself in an unconventional Anamika Khanna ensemble which exuding bohemian chic vibes at first glance. The ensemble was a white sari draped to perfection and featured a thick border.
What drew most of the focus to her look however, was the beautiful jacket she wore over the sari on her shoulders was. The jacket was adorned with a print which was reminiscent of the Sindhi ajrak print and featured some bead and tassel detailing along the edges and on the neckline. Sonam Kapoor teamed the outfit with a pair of black khussas and we must say, we’re totally loving the starlet in this bohemian chic avatar.
For this look, Sonam Kapoor had her hair tied flat in a middle parting and tied back in a long braid to compliment the bohemian vibe of the outfit. She accessorized with lots of traditional looking jewellery including a choker, statement earrings and chunky bangles. To round off the look, Sonam Kapoor opted for dark, smokey eyes and a dark pout. We’d love to see Sonam Kapoor in more looks like this pronto!
Earlier this week, Sonam Kapoor took to Instagram and shared a series of pictures of herself in in a beautiful pink ensemble and it truly looks like what pink dreams are made of. For the desi avatar, Sonam Kapoor is clad in an ethnic lengha choli by fashion house Abhinav Mishra who showcased their collection for the very first time on the ramp. Styled by Mohit Rai, the starlet can be seen in a fully worked lengha choli which is adorned all over with intricate silver work.
The choli featured a deep back and fully worked sleeves which were visible through the organza dupatta. The Veere Di Wedding actor had the dupatta wrapped around her delicately and the transparency of the fabric allowed for all the inner work to be on display. The dupatta too was adorned with silver work and a thick mirrored border. Sonam Kapoor was exuding major bride vibes in heavy traditional jewellery including a heavy statement choker and a teeka.
For her hair and makeup look, the starlet had her hair styled in a middle parting and slicked back in a big bun which was adorned with flowers.
And last but not least, Sonam Kapoor opted for an unconventional sari for a recent look just last month which featured an unconventional blouse with statement sleeves that tightened at her wrists. The dark green sari was adorned with a busy floral print which she paired with a miniature silver bag. Sonam Kapoor also accessorized with some traditional jewellery and statement earrings.
With this look, Sonam Kapoor was exuding major 60’s vibes with a dramatic winged eyeliner and peachy makeup. She had her hair loose and parted in the middle and pushed behind her ears.
After looking at Sonam Kapoor in these three avatars, we’re convinced that there’s no Bollywood dive who could quite pull off these fashion-forward looks quite like her.
