Couture And Elegance With Sonam Kapoor

Thursday, March 08, 2018

Sonam Kapoor is hailed the fashion queen of Bollywood, and no can deny having been dazzled by her elusive sense of style. There is no better choice when it comes to fashion in India, so Aakriti Patni re-creates a few of her gorgeous looks

We’ve admired her, we’ve envied her, and we’ve wanted to be her. A true fashion icon, Sonam Kapoor leaves no stone unturned when it comes to all things fashion. She is the definition of haute couture in India and we’ve seen some of the most exclusive brands bending to her will. But, while emulating Sonam’s explicit fashion style is not an easy task, we take it up, to bring you some of the items that may meet her stature at a fraction of the price. (We don’t want to be the reason for that burning hole in your pocket; we’ll leave that to Sonam!) We’ve sourced through her Instagram account as well as that of her partner in crime, sister Rhea Kapoor, to re-create some of her best looks.

LOOK 1: DEMURE DAMSEL

A clean-swept look worn for a shoot for luxury Swiss watch brand, International Watch Company (IWC), we particularly loved this ensemble for its effervescent regal elegance. Playing with whites, Sonam is rarely seen in a minimalistic avatar, and the pairing of the off-shoulder gown with a long overcoat emphasises the demure royal look she strives for.

A fairly simple look to recreate, we suggest an off-shoulder gown paired with a long trench coat. To complete the look, we think a watch from your personal collection would be a great addition!

LOOK 2: CONTEMPORARY CHIC

She’s known for her contemporary style, and this look showcases Sonam in a chic modern avatar. Elevating the simple kurta-palazzo combination with a cross bow effect with the pre-stitched sliver crepe stole, we simply loved this look!

We’ve re-created the look with an off-white kurta with minimal embroidery and sheer white palazzo pants. For the cross bow effect, we suggest stitching the grey dupatta to the kurta, much like with her outfit.

Off-white kurta Samant Chauhan (Rs 18,000)

Semi-sheer gauze palazzo pants Forever 21 (Rs 2,935)

Grey crushed cotton dupatta The Jaypore Label (Rs 396) 

Vintage brass earrings Soul Flower (Rs 1,565)

Dream blush stilettos Steve Madden (Rs 5,937)

LOOK 3: BASIC COUTURE

She’s known for her experimental fashion sense, and it’s not every day that we spot Sonam in an ensemble that is downright simple. Worn while promoting her latest film Padman, she shows of her long legs in Balenciaga pants, which she pairs with a Fear of God jumper and brings a sense of elegant classicism to her look. True to her form, she plays it up with interesting jewellery from designer Roma Narsinghani.

We recreate the look with form-fitting black leggings from Topshop paired with a grey jumper from H&M and pointed heels by Jessica Buurman. We can’t replicate her accessories to the T, but we thought the hair bun cage and drop earrings from Swedish designer label By Boe would make the perfect addition to the outfit.

Black leggings Topshop (Rs 1,089)

Grey jumper H&M (Rs 999)

Pointed heels Jessica Buurman (Rs 8,110)

Hair bun cage By Boe (Rs 11,030)

Drop earrings By Boe (Rs 3,570)

LOOK 4: THE BLACK BALLER

Pushing the ball when it comes to red carpet events, the 63rd Filmfare Awards saw Sonam Kapoor grace the event in an all-black ensemble that went far and beyond the heavy-set gowns that are usually seen on the carpet. Ditching the norm, Sonam opted for an off-shoulder Vera Wang corset-style top with a black blazer. Paring that with simple black pumps from Gucci and a clutch from Elie Saab, she was the symbol of suave modernism.

A tall order to fill, no doubt. We recreated the look with a black peplum top paired with a golden brooch, similar to the gold work on Sonam’s own Vera Wang corset. With a sleek cape jacket from Zara, as well as golden earrings and a clutch to finish the look, we think it’s a pretty good match!

Peplum top ASOS (Rs 3,906)

Pearl burst brooch Oscar de La Renta (Rs 13,615)

Black cape jacket Zara (Rs 4,990)

Solid capris Reitmans (Rs 2,609)

Basic pointed pumps Charles and Keith (Rs 5,999)

Striped black and golden clutch AliExpress (Rs 1,302)

Geometric golden earrings TheLabelLife (Rs 1,323)
