This weeks Style Spotlight falls on Sonam Kapoor, Bollywood actress and full time fashionista. Yes I admit I am a bit of Bollywood film fan (Indian cinema for those of you who are unfamiliar), and it was Sonam Kapoor's movie Aisha that made me take notice of her serious flair for fashion. Her father is the incredible Anil Kapoor who has appeared in various Hollywood ventures, most notably for his role in Mission Impossible 3 and hit TV show 24. Sonam Kapoor is one of my favourite style icons alongside Olivia Palermo and Rachel Zoe.
Now, she is seemingly never afraid to take risks on the red carpet her style effortlessly mixes both traditional Indian wear and edgy Western Designer wear, its a hard decision to say which style she looks best in, but for me I would have to say it's when she dresses in traditional Indian wear that she looks flawless, her designers of choice are not your average selection either, ranging from Satya Paul to Anamika Khanna, Shehla Kahn and Ridhi Mehra and 'traditional' is a long stretch of the word, but Sonam has this uncanning ability to take Indian wear to a whole new level. She's famously donned modern new 'concept' sari's to edgy overcoats over classic sari's to the most elegant anarkalis (long indian dresses with matching trousers/pants.) Sonam also has an eye for stunning accessories that would make anyone envious! Her choices range from modern Outhouse pieces to the most classic of Kundan work jewellery (Indian Stone work.)
This young starlets style mixes everything from Jean-Paul Gaultier to Vintage Dolce & Gabanna and countless more illustrious designers and honestly she could give any young Hollywood starlet a run for their money! Sonam continues to raise the style stakes and is fast becoming India's most stylish star, and it wont be too long before we see her rising to a truly international platform.
Take a look at a few of my favourite Sonam Kapoor style moments!
