SONAM, THE PRINCESS BRIDE, STUNS ON THE RED CAR­PET

True fash­ion is al­ways a show­case of in­di­vid­u­al­ity. It does the un­ex­pected and doesn’t bow to con­ven­tions. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja stayed true to the free­wheel­ing spirit of fash­ion at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val 2018. The ac­tor ditched pre­dictable gowns and pants suits, and sur­prised ev­ery­one with an ivory lehenga by Aus­tralian cou­turi­ers, Ralph & Russo. A ro­man­tic mix of old and new, the vo­lu­mi­nous skirt, dra­matic floor-graz­ing sleeve of the cropped blouse and ethe­real leafy em­broi­dery gave it a re­fresh­ing, global feel. The new­ly­wed looked stun­ning in the at­tire, which was teamed with mid­dle-parted hair in a no­fuss plait. Her tra­di­tional hair ac­ces­sory, a beau­ti­ful naga jadai, in­voked a vin­tage princess bride vibe.

We also loved that she showed off the mehendi on her hands, which could have been tricky to pull off with a west­ern gown. Also, the kohl-lined eyes and re­strained makeup with a touch of pink on the lips per­fectly com­ple­mented the at­tire. What do you think of Sonam cel­e­brat­ing In­di­an­ness with a twist at the fes­ti­val?
