1. Suit Up!
There’s no denying that power suits are having a major moment this year and Sonam Kapoor has opted for one on several occasions throughout the year. One power suit moment that caught our eye was the one she wore to an event last month and she looked chic to boot. Sonam Kapoor was styled by her sister, Rhea Kapoor in a Ralph Lauren tuxedo suit which featured a pair of pants and a crisp white shirt. The outfit was completed with a satin waistcoat over which she wore a blazer with satin lapels. The outfit was rounded off with a silk bow tie and Sonam Kapoor’s look is proof that you don’t have to be a gentleman to sport this look.
Sonam Kapoor teamed the suit with a pair of pointed Louboutin heels and glammed up with straight hair parted in the middle and opted for bronze, smokey, sultry eye makeup. Her shimmering eyes were rounded off with a peachy glow and a nude lip and delicate jewels to complete the look. Overall, we think Sonam Kapoor slayed the day in this look.
2. Sari Not Sorry
Sonam Kapoor promoted her film, The Zoya Factor, in a big way this year. Each day saw Sonam Kapoor clad in a new outfit, leaving heads turning each time she stepped out. She was styled by her sister and stylist, Rhea Kapoor for each look and there wasn’t a single look that didn’t make a statement. For one of her looks, Sonam Kapoor was clad in a printed sari by fashion label Jebsispar By Jebin Johny. The white sari featured a geometric print and red faces of what appears to be the silhouette of a warrior.She accessorized the look with a traditional set of jewels by Amrapali, featuring a pair of jhumkis and a matching necklace. She carried a miniature black bag and made a rather bold sartorial statement in the look. For her makeup, Sonam Kapoor opted for her signature winged liner and a coat of mascara and a bold red pout to round off the look. She had her hair parted in the middle and tied back in a neat hairdo and red flowers were used in her hair to accentuate the look.
3. Bohemian Chic
If there’s one fashionista who knows how to rock an unconventional look, it is none other than Sonam Kapoor. The Khoobsurat actress recently sported an unconventional Anamika Khanna ensemble which exuded 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 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!
4. Fierce In Red
For the promotions of The Zoya Factor, Sonam Kapoor ensured that all her looks featured an element of red. For one look, she opted for a leather and suede combo and this marks one of our fave looks from her promotional campaign. For this look, Sonam Kapoor wore a pair of leather culottes which she teamed with chiffon cape blouse which buttons down. Sonam Kapoor opted for the same colour accessories and teamed her look with suede knee-high boots and a leather bag by Manu Atelier. The Khoobsurat actress accessorized with dainty rings and jewels and rocked this bold look like nobody’s business. For her hair and makeup look, Sonam Kapoor opted for a unique look, one that she hasn’t yet sported during her promotional campaign. She had her hair styled in loose soft curls and had a quirky graphic eye liner look which we’re loving. Her overall look was bronze and she rounded off her look with an earthy toned lip.
5. Colour Me Coral
Sonam Kapoor has the knack for sporting the most edgy looks, that some would never imagine. She is that one starlet who can push every fashion boundary and make it work. Sonam Kapoor is also proof that red carpet rules are not for her. She traded a glamourous gown for an oversized Fenty suit as she arrived hand in hand with Anand Ahuja at the GQ Best Dressed Awards Party. The couple opted for complementing two-piece suits and matching sneakers of course! Sonam was probably one of the first women to be dressed in Rihanna’s recently- released label for LVMH, Fenty, and pulled off the look effortlessly. The coral of the oversized suit perfectly complemented the starlet’s complexion and the matching fanny pack was a winner in our books. Who wants to carry a clutch when you’re having fun anyway?
The global style icon accessorized with dainty earrings and statement rings which added an element of elegance to her look. Sonam didn’t experiment with her makeup look and opted for her go-to winged liner, rosy cheeks and nude lips. This look is a total winner in our books.
Having looked at all of Sonam Kapoor’s looks, it is clear to see why she has gained the reputation for being the best dressed diva of Bollywood. What’s your favourite Sonam Kapoor look?
