14 Breathtaking Cannes Looks That Prove Sonam Kapoor Is A Global Fashion Icon


‘I’ve seldom been criticised for what I wear’ quoted Sonam Kapoor in one of the media interactions ahead of her Red Carpet Walk at the 70th edition of French Reveira. And we completely agree with the fashionista of Bollywood. Whether it’s costume styling in films, red carpet looks, airport looks or movie promotion looks, Sonam has proved that she is the ultimate style goddess. And we are totally in love with this fashionable lady for her quirky and classic sartorial choices!

Since her first debut at Cannes Film Festival in 2011, the 31-year-old actor has been seen acing her fashion game along with her sister/stylist Rhea Kapoor. Until 2011, there was just one Indian actor ruling and rocking the Cannes until the fashion diva, Sonam Kapoor walked in and we can’t deny that she was a breath of fresh air.

Sonam is not someone who would shy away from experiemnting with her style, fashion choices and the best part is, she nails each and every look flawlessly. It’s been six years and Sonam is just going forward and upward and making jaws drop with her bold, brave and scintillating looks.

While we are still unable to understand how she manages to nail all the looks and break her own records, let’s take a look at her splashing Cannes fashion journey.

PS: You will be drooling all the time and she will sweep you off your feet with her magical couture, ball gowns and quirky Indian accessories and sari-gown drapes.

Year 2017:


Going by the above outfits, if this is what she meant by ‘not prepared much for Cannes’, we are wondering what would happen if she prepares too much. Sonam was a dream come alive in Elie Saab gown. Dressed in a beautiful rose gold chiffon dress, she rocked the red carpet like never before. Meanwhile, the fashion icon opted for a sari-like outfit paired with a crop top for her media interactions and she definitely won this look.

Year 2016:

The Bollywood fashion icon chose her outfits to speak volumes for herself and dressed in Ralph & Russo column gown and sari-inspired dress, she truly radiated confidence, beauty and style. Time and again, the actor has showed us that she owns fashion and understands the beauty of clothes and it truly reflects in her fashion choices.

Year 2015:

Sonam Kapoor is definitely one such name whose red carpet looks are much talked about and in a light yellow Elie Saab Couture, the fashionista received mixed reviews for her outfit but her sheer confidence and effortless walk definitely made several hearts beat. Meanwhile, she was a vision in blue in stunning cobalt blue gown by Ralph & Russo.

Year 2014:

How can we ever forget the Sonam Kapoor’s Indian look at Cannes? She was breathtaking and jaw-dropping in a pale pink net sari dress by Anamika Khanna. We give her double thumbs up for this look and are truly in awe of this lady.  While people were still to get over her Indian avatar, she made heads turn in a black Elie Saab gown.

Year 2013:

She was a showstealer in a floral strapless Dolce & Gabana printed dress at Cannes. Whereas she rocked the red carpet in lace sari by Anamika Khanna; and that nose-ring was just what was needed to nail the traditional look.

Year 2012:

From gowns to drapes to sari, this woman can rock anything and everything. We bet you still remember the heavy tulle gown by Alexander Mcquee which made us fall in love with her fashion and style.

Year 2011:

Sonam Kapoor was a stunner and show-stopper in the Jean Paul Gaultier gown at her first Cannes debut and like always, she slayed the look with her ever-sparkling smile.
