Red carpet appearances are the duo’s forte, with Rhea dolling up Sonam in the most voguish looks and Sonam executing them with an enviable panache. A refined sense of style coupled with a bit of drama, Sonam Kapoor is all set to make jaws drop with her stint at the Cannes International Film Festival. Beginning her tryst with the showcase of style sensibilities from 2011 in Cannes, Sonam Kapoor has never missed the mark and has always managed to bring in a sartorial style sensibility that’s distinct and sophisticated. Making heads turn again this year, Sonam Kapoor’s Cannes journey is as enchanting as she is.

Pioneering the fashion scene in tinsel town, Sonam Kapoor’s style vibes have rubbed on to her contemporaries quite well. Her bold stance on fashion and its subtleties made everyone sit up and take notice. Proving her naysayers wrong, Sonam upped her acting prowess with Neerja which clinched the Special Jury Award/ Special Mention at prestigious National Awards this year. She also did her bit for fashion by kickstarting the brand Rheson- an amalgamation of the first three letters of Sonam and Rhea Kapoor’s names that boast of creations inspired from the ’90s with playful prints and contemporary cuts and silhouettes. Let’s jog down the memory lane and revisit some of the iconic style moments from Sonam’s journey at Cannes.

Cannes 2011


Making that big International red carpet debut, Sonam Kapoor wore a white vintage Jean Paul Gaultier gown with Ferragamo shoes, an elegant updo and golden-black smokey eyes and nude gloss. Other looks included a golden layered gown, a Princess Leia inspired look accentuated with simple eyes and coral lips, and a Masaba polka-dotted saree.

Ringing in some colors this year, Sonam Kapoor chose to flaunt two black ensembles and red voluminous gown. The first look was a bold and gothic high-necked Alexander McQueen gown with bold eyebrows, red lips, and a center-parted hairdo. We especially loved her velvet Dolce & Gabbana voluminous dress with an intricate headband, bold eyes and bright red lips.

Following a showcase of western ensembles, Sonam brought in a traditional vibe with an Anamika Khanna saree with an embroidered long jacket, a stunning makeup of golden eyeshadow, perfectly winged liner, and bright red lips. The nose ring was a perfect accompaniment to the look along with an updo. She upped the style quotient with a floral strapless fit and flare Dolce and Gabbana gown along with side-swept, soft, wavy hair, nude makeup, and an elegant necklace. Other ensembles included a pink dress and a monochrome cape dress.

Going all black for her stint this year, Sonam Kapoor wore an Eli Saab gown with a stunning vintage faux bob, shimmer and rose gold on her eyes and pink lips. If this look got everyone wonderstruck then Sonam certainly kept her promise with a blush pink caped Anamika Khanna saree, black smokey eyes, nude lips and sleek, straight hair. Her last look comprised a powder blue strapless gown with a center-parted low pony, bright lips and a statement necklace.

Cannes 2015


Flitting from a bright electric blue Ralph and Russo gown to a demure pale green feathered Eli Saab gown, Sonam Kapoor sported a side-swept wavy hairstyle, glossy red lips and smokey eyes for the first look and a crisper hairdo for the second look.

Cannes 2016


Last year, Sonam was snapped wearing a white ensemble by Ralph and Russo yet again with a short train and a floral netted long cape. A pair of stud-rock earrings, a floral diamond neckpiece by Bvlgari and a neat bun along with pink blush, eyeshadow and lips rounded up her look. For her second outing, Sonam wore a Ralph & Russo sari-inspired dress with stud earrings and a white-rock ring. A minimal makeup of white highlights at the edges of the kohled-rimmed eyes and nude pink lips along with sleek straight hair rounded up her look.

Carrying off the ensembles with a certain flair of elegance and oodles of confidence, Sonam Kapoor’s fashion choices have been appreciated by fashion pundits as well as fashion lovers all around the world. We can hardly wait for the diva to render us speechless with her sartorial fashion game yet again at Cannes this year.
