Sonam Kapoor’s Two Outfits: Cannes Opening Gala 2013

For the premiere of The Great Gatsby on the Day 1 at Cannes Film Festival 2013, Sonam wore an Indian Anamika Khanna white lace sari with a long embroidered jacket. While I’m not too impressed with the outfit (its just too bg for her) the saree or the jacket isn’t the reason I’m writing the post. Its the nathni (nose ring)!! Okay I must confess I like nose rings so may be that is the reason I want to say “Bravoo!!” to her. The pearl stone nathni is

from her mom Sunita Kapoor’s jewelry line.

Although I don’t like the makeup. I agree you have to go a bit strong to keep up with all the flashes and lights there but its the maroon lips I’m talking about. It makes her look too old and dull. The dramatic winged eye liner saves the day!

I know Sonam gets a bit too excited when it comes to red carpet appearances. While the Hollywood celebs look like they came straight out of their walk-in closets, Sonam looks straight out of a runway! But let’s just give it to her. Its Cannes. Its Day 1. Its the Opening dinner. So let her have fun dressing up.

Its very similar to her last year’s Dolce and Gabanna look where she managed to look straight out of a school prom. This year its Barbie Doll. Pink looks great against her skin tone. May be she should ditch ruby and orange for a while.

  5. I just love her in Elie Saab dress. Look at her face and sleek hair matches her persona to the T. I don’t why we just go overboard with everything while doing Indian looks on red carpet.

  6. […] SONAM KAPOOR, the classy bollywood actress just never fails to stun us with her looks and outfits, same happened at the 67th Cannes Film Festival. The makeup tutorial that I’ll be doing is the one in which Sonam Kapoor is wearing this really pretty Anamika Khanna twisted net saree, along with Jimmy Choo shoes for the red carpet appearance at the Foxcatcher Premiere at Cannes 2014. The makeup look that she had is pretty magical, yes magical! Just because when you see the smokey eye makeup from different angles, it looks quite different and by that I mean that when I saw the pictures, the eye makeup seemed quite dark and black but when I saw it on youtube and in some more videos it seemed quite muted.
