STYLE CRUSH:
FIVE REASONS SONAM KAPOOR IS (SHOULD BE) EVERYONE’S STYLE INSPIRATION


Issue Date 24 - 30 Dec, 2016 at 2:00 PM

Sonam is many things, but shy is not one of them She is a consistent trendsetter She lets us know experimenting is good She perfectly fuses together modern with traditional She never drowns herself with details

We might never get enough of her, but that is a good thing as long as she remains successful in experimenting with styles and designers all over the globe. She might have her bad moments as well, but what we are certain of is that Sonam has got guts and dares to step where no other actress does. Only a few of us have it in us to try out anything close to what she does, yet she makes it easier for us to shake things in our wardrobe. While we might prefer to relax in our sartorial comfort zone, Sonam waltz her way into wackier trends every day. Never the one to settle, the style icon’s choice has truly redefined what it means to be a stylishly liberated woman in today’s time. From her trendy outfits to edgy accessories, Sonam shows you why it is never fun to play safe.

1. Sonam is many things, but shy is not one of them
She has undoubtedly come a long way since entering the limelight with her first movie, this includes her style evolution that ultimately raised her status to an iconic level. Her choice of jewellery is definitely one of the best things to come out of this. She flawlessly pairs up unseemly pieces with sophisticated outfits, giving us new goals every time she makes a red
carpet appearance. Her jewellery in particular, is always trendsetting and out-and-out edgy. Skull rings, chokers, nose rings, polki and kundan sets, layered necklaces, she leaves no trend untouched.

2. She is a consistent trendsetter
Sonam might work hard at her job, but she seems to work harder at pushing the boundaries of contemporary fashion. She deserves credit for bringing back so many trends, but most recently, she can be given the title of being the undisputed choker queen. Not only that, she has endorsed choker in every style, but also with every kind of outfit, making it the new ‘it’ accessory.

3. She lets us know experimenting is good
With Sonam, you can never say that a gone trend could not make a comeback. If it is her who favours it, not only will it return but will probably also enjoy ruling for a good while. The actress has given us some eccentric looks to swoon over, wearing tribal jewellery that we never thought could be red carpet material. These funky pieces have adorned her sarees and western outfits many a time. They look even prettier because they suit so well with her skin tone.

4. She perfectly fuses together modern with traditional
Kundan necklaces with red carpet gowns or coin necklaces with sarees – Sonam creates a fantastic fusion of contemporary and traditional. Time and again, she has slayed her onlookers with wacky combinations, which she pulls off smoothly. The secret, if one thinks, might be her ability to take creative decisions without paying attention to the critics.

5. She never drowns herself with details
Being a style inspiration for millions never deters her, one can always see elements of her personality shining through her looks. No matter what the trend forecast says, she does what her heart desires. One of the few B-town starlets to rock royalty with effortless elegance, Sonam loves pristine pearls like none other. And, the best part is, she doesn’t even limit them to just a single set of outfits. Whether it’s flashy prints or colourless ensembles, she knows how the addition of a simple pearl necklace can transport her into the royal league.


Sight for sore eyes

Sight for sore eyes

The actress’ most anticipated looks remain from the annual Cannes Film Festival. She never manages to surprise her followers even if her look fails to create the magic that we are used to feeling. Earlier this year, the fashionista was spotted in a number of grand costumes, including one Ralph & Russo gown. Styled by her sister, Rhea Kapoor, the 31-year-old actress looked ethereal in the sky blue number with delicate, bright golden embroidery. Although Sonam chose to wear an off-shoulder gown, she was sure to add her peculiar essence in the overall look by pairing it up with applaud-worthy statement golden jhumkas. She kept the rest of the look simple to let the two star elements do the talking. Fusing her heritage and the demands of international red carpet standards, she added a touch of Indian glamour to the gown and much praise back home. This might just be her best this year.
