Stylish Diva and Indian actor Sonam Kapoor from Bollywood, is once again set to grace the red carpet at the Cannes International Film Festival.
Known for her choice of dresses and given her tall and well-proportioned body she carries herself well wherever she goes and in whatever she wears. No wonder this fashionista represents L’oreal Paris time and again as one of their key brand ambassadors for their line of make-up products, this time being for an Indian skin tone of the brand’s latest L’Or Lumiere collection at the prestigious event.
Set to promote on the 18th and 19th of May, this lovely daughter of famous designer Sunita and the Bollywood icon hero Anil Kapoor, is herself an icon when it comes to trends and latest fashion styles. So much so that her name comes immediately to the lips of even those looking to have their fashion wares displayed on the ramp, let alone the thousands of fans lapping up whatever she offers by way of her eye-catching dresses every time she steps out.
Fourth appearance in a row, she has dazzled each time she has been there. Showcasing her talent for making the right choice of dresses to match the products she promotes, she has been applauded for her dress sense and élan. Unfazed by the who’s who of Hollywood who generally are a major part of the attraction in this international event, she has rightly positioned herself as the representative of the fashionable Indian woman.
Quoting from her own words “We are trying to do something that is classic, something that is not just fashionable but can be easily related to by the regular crowd too.” My look is elegant and beautiful and universal.” We are trying to promote Indian skin tone through a range of bronze, gold shades along with pops of colours,”
A natural when it comes to flaunting international styles, she still feels that Indian designers and ethnic fusion are truly world class and has never missed an opportunity to showcase the Indian traditional in its modern avatar or some Indian accompaniment in whatever she has worn.
Comfortable with her body shape of flaring hips and strong arms she has never meant to hide them but instead showed the world that fashion is the art of getting the ordinary or slightly out of proportion bodies to look stylish and fashionable.
Be it the floral Dolce & Gabbana gown she wore with an Indian type scarf that her mother designed for her on an earlier occasion or the Jean Paul Gaultier dress in 2011, the Alexander McQueen black coloured lace gown the following year, or the Indian saree with a jacket by designer Anamika Khanna and kundan nose ring in tow of last year, Sonam Kapoor has never failed to ‘wow’ the audience.
For her as with many other Bollywood iconic females, the fascination of the good old Indian saree still holds. The traditional apparel that has evolved into a completely new item of fashion style, the extraordinary range that is available to the stylists and fashion lovers is mind boggling.
There are over 300 plus varieties of ethnic and designer sarees and more coming with the passage of time that has enthralled women the world over, of which most are available to view and shop at www.unnatisilks.com
Representing India with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Frieda Pinto, the other Indian ambassadors of the L’oreal brand, Sonam Kapoor has once again portrayed that when it comes to stylish fashion, Indian women have established a unique niche place that is both admirable and enviable.
The current brigade of Bollywood females have done much for the Indian saree in international fashion.
