Sonam Kapoor Ahuja In A Tux Reminds Us Of How Much We Need To Have A Desi Bond Version Already
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s fashion among Bollywood’s finest is unique because it’s ‘woke’. This fashion girl never repeats an aesthetic and paired with her equally fashionable sister Rhea Kapoor who styles her, the duo strives to create something new. Sonam’s fashion experiments are mostly major throwbacks to styles that women have worn before her and made iconic and it’s great to see her give these looks a 2019 update.
She chose to go classic French girl in one her The Zoya Factor looks and it floored us entirely. A sentiment we recollected when she was spotted in a tuxedo last night at IWC Schaffhausen’s 2019 Pilot’s Watch collection launch.
Sonam threw it way back with her sleek tux and luxurious golden accessories with this one. Women and tuxedos share a history that goes beyond just fashion. Originally made and marketed as dinner jackets and wedding attire for men only, women have donned this dapper look like a statement of inclusivity. Fun Fact: The first tuxedo suit made for women, ever, was the ‘Le Smoking’ by famous French couturier Yves Saint Laurent, way back in 1966. It garnered negative responses from people, making it a feminist moment for women demanding attention in fashion. More recently, we have singers like Janelle Monáe popularising this androgynous look.
Talking about androgyny, we have known Sonam to pull off this aesthetic in many different ways. From her baggy pantsuits to masculine suit jackets, she does not hold back. With this Ralph Lauren tuxedo though, we think her journey with suits has come full circle. But wait, this isn’t the first time Sonam chose the tux over a feminine dress. She previously wore a version of this classic satin style on the Cannes 2019 red carpet…
We love it that Sonam pulls all stops when it comes to creating original looks. She kept the suit looking ladylike with pin-straight hair, paper bag waist trousers, and strappy stilettos. Ralph Lauren is the modern maker of great suits for women and now Sonam is officially a part of that crowd!
