Rhea Kapoor Dishes Out Secrets To Styling Sonam And We Are Taking Notes!
We love ourselves fun sibling relationships, especially sisters. Gigi and Bella, Kendall and Kylie and for the 90s kids Mary-Kate and Ashley. These fashionable siblings prove that sisterhood goes beyond just pinkie promises! Closer home, we desi women have our own stylish sibling duo to crush on. Rhea Kapoor has been styling sister Sonam Kapoor since the beginning of her career and their fashion journey has been a series of experiments. Love it or hate it, it certainly has been fun to watch.
Now Zoya, the diamond boutique from the House of Tata, has collaborated with Rhea Kapoor to build an accessorising style digest and before we get a chance to pour over the pages with our breath held, we chanced upon the opportunity to speak to Rhea and get her personal take on accessorising and styling- the very process that has catapulted Sonam into being one of the most stylish celebs in the country.
Rhea got candid about the difference in the personal style adopted by Sonam and herself. “Sonam’s personal style is a bit more adventurous than mine. I have moments of adventure but Sonam is adventurous throughout. She is more comfortable playing with looks and I am more comfortable being myself.”, she explained.
When asked about the process that goes behind curating chic and original looks for Sonam, Rhea let us in on her alternative approach. “The styling process always starts with an idea or story. The look that I style is not based on the dresses available. Even if it’s the smallest look, it’s always aesthetic with an idea. There’s a dream behind it and then everything must come together to give that form. It’s about who the girl is.”, she revealed.
The Zoya Style Digest 2.0 shares styling tips for the celebration of personal milestones for the contemporary woman. According to Rhea, a genuine personality is the most important accessory one can wear. A big fan of delicate layering, Rhea believes there is a statement piece for every occasion. A delicate necklace can enhance a smart suit and she suggests big earrings to complement our summer dresses. We live in our jeans and need nothing more than some statement rings. She also recommends chandelier earrings for the occasional wedding parties.
Talking about her collaboration with Zoya, Rhea stressed on their gorgeous statement pieces are gorgeous. “I also love Zoya’s delicate layered jewellery like the citrine lariats and rings from Italy inspired PezzoD’Arte collection. In my opinion, layered jewellery adds a lot of personality to your look.”
Rhea Kapoor seems to have the styling game all sorted out. She uses her instincts to style a celeb and we think it’s genius. She added, “I don’t dress a lot of celebrities other than those who are acting in my films. But for me, my process is different from person to person. For example, Sonam is a dress-up kind of a girl. Sonam can see something and want to adopt it. It can be something around her, or from a history book as well. I’ve dressed Sonam often in Zoya. While styling Kareena for instance, it’s more about how the clothes make her feel, she’s a girl of her mood, so dressing her is different.”
Rhea is the kind of stylist we all need!
