Maanyata Thu |May 21, 2019

From henna and haath phool to jhumkas and parandi to saris, let's look back at six times when Bollywood diva Sonam Kapoor brought Cannes red carpet several elements of Indian tradition.

If there is one Bollywood actress who defines experimental fashion, it is Sonam Kapoor. From making red carpet appearances to promoting her new films, Sonam Kapoor has not only set trends but also challenged daring stereotypes with her brilliant sartorial choices.

It is true that the beautiful diva and her stylish sister Rhea have considerably contributed to the changes of fashion in India and Sonam herself has tried to bring some elements of Indian style to the fore as often opting for Indian ensembles at one of the world's most prestigious events, the Cannes Film Festival.

This year, while Deepika Padukone turned heads at the French Riviera in a black and cream Dundas couture and Kangana Ranaut made her appearance in a Falguni and Shane Peacock sari, fans are eager to see Sonam Kapoor taking over the famed red carpet.

However, in the meantime, let’s take a look back at six times when the 33-year-old star made the experimentation to a whole new level and put Indian elements on the world map. From haath phool, jhumkas, parandi, henna to lehengas and sari, Sonam knows how to slay in every outfit that she dons!

Walking as a newlywed bride, Sonam Kapoor donned the most beautiful ivory lehenga with silver embroidery and floral motifs for the 2018 Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

Also in the same year, the Bollywood fashionista once again left us hooked on her as she opted for a beige off-shoulder Vera Wang dress with a yellow tulle for her second day at the star-studded event.

Previously, Sonam kick-started her Cannes 2017 journey in style with an iridescent sari and white mesh blouse from Nor Black Nor White.

At the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, she walked the red carpet in a custom Elie Saab pink gown and paired it with Kalyan jewelry.

After making waves at the 2016 Cannes red carpet in a Ralph & Russo gown, the 30-year-old actress continued to opt for another creation from the fashion house as she attended the prestigious amfAR GALA and this time it was a beautiful sky blue gown with golden embroidery.

Sonam opted for a black and blue sari from Rimzim Dadu and paired it with fuchsia lips, tied bun and black collar necklace.

On the work front, Sonam Kapoor’s last outing was Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, and she is now preparing for her forthcoming film titled The Zoya Factor, which is an adaption of Anuja Chauhan's novel of the same name. Produced by Aarti Shetty, Pooja Shetty Deora, and helmed by director Abhishek Sharma, the film also features Dulquer Salmaan in the pivotal role.
