Cosmopolitan (India) - - CONTENTS -

We caught up with fash­ion’s favourite child be­fore she left for the pres­ti­gious film fes­ti­val.

COSMO: ARE YOU EX­CITED ABOUT VIS­IT­ING CANNES AGAIN?

Sonam Kapoor: “I'm ex­tremely ex­cited, es­pe­cially this year, be­cause we're cel­e­brat­ing 100 years of In­dian Cin­ema. Plus, L’Oréal Paris, makeup artist Nam­rata Soni, and I have come up with six looks for me—and one of them is Rekha! My sis­ter Rhea (Kapoor) styled the shoot.”

C: WHAT ARE YOUR DAYS AT CANNES LOOK­ING LIKE?

SK: “I’m do­ing the open­ing cer­e­mony for The Great Gatsby. Hugh Topps will be per­form­ing, and then there's a din­ner with the L'Oréal Paris brand am­bas­sadors the night be­fore.”

C: WHAT IS MORE EX­CIT­ING... THE RED CAR­PET OR AF­TER-PARTY?

SK: “They're both fun. Cannes has al­ways been an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. You feel just like a lit­tle girl in a candy store!”

C: WHAT HAVE YOU PACKED

IN YOUR TRAVEL BAG?

SK: “I’ve packed a lot of Anamika Khanna and Shehla Khan Couture. There's lots of great fash­ion, and In­dian jewellery from my mom's col­lec­tion.”

C: WHAT AND WHO WILL YOU BE WEAR­ING TO THE FES­TI­VAL?

SK: “I’m wear­ing one In­dian de­signer and one In­ter­na­tional de­signer. It’ll be amaz­ing, and it’ll be dra­matic."

C: WHAT ABOUT YOUR MAKE-UP AND HAIR? ANY LOOKS IN MIND?

SK: “Hair and make-up will be in­spired by var­i­ous trends. I’m lean­ing to­wards the ’60s, ’20s, and ’80s—black liner and dark lips!”

C: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BEAUTY PROD­UCTS RIGHT NOW?

SK: “I like Michael by Michael Kors—it’s my go-to fra­grance. Also, the L’Oréal sheer lip­sticks—they’re fab­u­lous to wear on lips and cheeks. I’m ad­dicted to es­sen­tial oils right now—peppermint, rose, tea tree. I ap­ply the oil by mix­ing it with my cold cream.”

C: WHAT’S YOUR SE­CRET TO RED-CAR­PET CON­FI­DENCE?

SK: “I don’t get ner­vous on the red car­pet. As soon as I’m on it, I’m fine. I tell my­self to just have fun.”

C: WHAT KIND OF FIT­NESS ROU­TINE DO YOU FOL­LOW BE­FORE CANNES?

SK: “I’ve been work­ing out less ac­tu­ally be­cause I’ve had no time. Nor­mally, I do Pi­lates and yoga, and I swim. And no carbs af­ter 6pm!”

C: DO YOU HAVE DAYS WHEN YOU’VE JUST GOT ‘NOTH­ING TO WEAR’?

SK: “No (laughs)! Rhea does a great job of styling al­ways. I don’t mind re­peat­ing stuff, so it’s okay.”
