How To Pull Off A Sheer Dress Like Sonam Kapoor
If you notice Sonam Kapoor’s choice of outfits, it’s not difficult to figure out her affinity for couture pieces. Call it a well-crafted look or just her penchant for refined styling, you’ll hardly find her favouring a more minimalistic approach. Her personal style is almost always on point, in no small part thanks to her sister and stylist Rhea Kapoor. So when I say Sonam Kapoor rules the sartorial roost in Bollywood, it’s an obvious statement considering she always makes it a point to step out in style.
But it seems like the new Brit luxe label Self-Portrait has caught the actress’s fancy, an exception to her usual choices. That’s not to say she doesn’t support emerging young designers — especially the affordable Indian ones — because she is something of a champion for Indian design, but her international choices are usually high fashion. And why not? This affordable luxury brand has made converts out of international fashionistas, making its way into their wardrobes with little effort. Despite its relatively affordable price point and recognisable styles, it is one of those few lucky brands to achieve cult status in a short span of time. With red carpet sightings of this London-based label on everyone from Olivia Palermo, Gigi Hadid, Miranda Kerr, Kristen Stewart, Beyonce and Jourdan Dunn, the acclaim it has received is not difficult to fathom. Those dresses are GORGEOUS. Even back home, fans of Self-Portrait include Priyanka Chopra, Mira Rajput Kapoor and socialite Michelle Poonawalla.
Sonam Kapoor opted for a Self-Portrait dress a second time, but the style icon managed a monotone look with such ease, you’ll want to give it a try. The navy dress in multi-motif sheer lace has a classic fit and flare silhouette that Sonam carries off exceptionally well. I like that she chose to go without the nude mesh underlayers; here the minimal skin show is a formula that works perfectly. Sonam chooses to rightly accentuate this ultrafeminine dress with an Elie Saab boxy sling bag and nude pumps by Christian Louboutin. She completes her look with earrings from Gehna and rings by Anmol Jewellers. LOVE!
