Sonam recalls ‘surreal’ experience in Paris
She is known for her perfect sartorial choices, be it her red-carpet appearances, events, or even airport looks. But earlier this week, Sonam Kapoor created history by becoming the showstopper at Ralph & Russo’s show at the Paris Couture Week 2017. She is now the first Indian to ever close a fashion show at this Couture Week.
“It was a surreal experience and I enjoyed every moment of it,” says Sonam. “Honestly, it feels really great that I’ve done something like this. It was a completely different experience for me. And I felt that this is the moment that I’m going to cherish for the rest of my life. Michael [Russo] and Tamara [Ralph] are dear friends and I’m so happy I could do this for them.”
Adding that she is “extremely close” to the designers, the Neerja (2016) actor says that walking the runway for them “was fabulous”. How was it to walk in such an elaborate outfit? “I had to wait for 20 minutes in the mock (drill). Plus, it was a really heavy outfit, so I was like, ‘Oh, my God. I really don’t want to fall or trip on anything.’ I was super worried about that, but it all worked out. It was amazing and in the night, I enjoyed myself at the party,” says Sonam.
