#Cannes2016: Sonam Kapoor stuns in Ralph & Russo Creations

Sonam Kapoor is the real reason I look forward to Cannes Film Festival every year. The girl is always at her fashionable best but when it comes to Cannes she actually takes her style game notches up delighting all with her hatke new glam experiments.

Cannes 2015 wasnt very good for sonam kapoor but 2016 I must say has been a fabulous fashion ride. This year Sonam Kapoor played a wee bit safe , I think her last years chicken dress disaster was the reason for that. She stuck to Ralph & Russo and mostly light pastel colours . I was a little disappointed that Sonam did not try fresh spring colours, but her spot on styling and her flawless makeup more than made up for it. 

Now lets have a detailed look on Sonam Kapoor's Looks from Cannes 2016

69th amfAR gala Look:

Lets start with my favourite look, pastel blue ralph & russo gown. Why is this my favourite look you ask? Well the jhumkas! 
For hosting the amfAR gala sonam chose a powder blue gown which feature a small train of sorts and a shirt style one sleeve. Define eyes, nude lips, red nails and huge jhumkas completed the look. I loved the hair do and the idea of adding an indian touch with jewelry. To be brides take note, this is an amazing way to style your reception gown look. 
I am so lusting those Kalyaan jewels jhumkas. Major love. And that messy braid? Perfect combination of style and comfort. 
This is Sonam Kapoors debut at amfAR gala, Aishwarya Rai hosted it previously and she skipped it because she was busy with sarbjit promotions.

First Red carpet look

For her first red carpet appearance at Cannes Sonam chose a white embroidered gown with dramatic cape detailing giving it a desi touch. This Ralph & Russo creation had a cut out on one sleeve and was paired with a simple white choker of sorts and straight middle parted hair. The styling of this look reminds me of her 2014 Anamika Khanna cape saree appearance where she did the cape + Choker + middle parted hair combo. Maybe that is the reason even this dramatic look did not excite me much or maybe I was just expecting too much.

There is no doubt Sonam looked stunning here and keeping her makeup simple worked beautifully, balancing out the cape and letting the gown do the talking

Second Red Carpet look 

Sonam chose a champagne coloured Ralph &Russo gown for her red carpet appearance at the screening of film Loving. This gown again had a floral long cape and was paired with floral necklace and simple studs. A sleek updo and dewy makeup finished out this look for Sonam. I like this look , the gown beautifully showed off Sonam's curves and special love for her makeup which was spot on. Her dramatic lashes and coral lips look smashing and go well with the gown.

Rimzim Dadu sari  look:

Promoting LOreal at cannes Sonam gave interviews nd she wore a structured metallic rimzim saree at one such interview. Before heading to Cannes Sonam had mentioned that there will be an indian touch to her outfits and this Saree was all indian with a very contemporary vibe. I love how sonam kept this sari look simple pairing it with only a pair of Suhani Pittie earrings.

Chopard Party Look

A black starpless gown with sheer detailing was outfit Sonam turned up in for the chopard party. The gown which had sheer patterned flare was paired with gloves, bright lips and a huge diamond necklace. I think this look was over styled, if was wearing those diamonds she should have skipped the gloves part. The fitting also wasnt right on her bust. 
Overall a good look but I wasnt blown away.

Overall cannes 2016 was a hit for Sonam Kapoor in terms of fashion but i do wish she had added more colour and tried other designers . 

Which is your favourite Sonam Kapoor Cannes 2016 look?
