Sonam Kapoor | Bollywood at Festival de Cannes 2016

Festival de Cannes is all about the best of cinema from across the globe. But while cinemaphiles cannot get enough of the on-screen action, fashion lovers wait with bated breath to see the who's who of World cinema don their best outfits. The red carpet at Cannes is a much talked about affair every year. We kickstart our new Bollywood at Festival de Cannes 2016 series by talking about a diva, who won more than a million hearts with her sartorial choices, both on and off the red carpet. Yes, we are talking about Sonam Kapoor, who is representing the make up brand L'Oreal Paris at the festival. Her regular updates on social media have sent Sona's fans into a tizzy. From one stunning look to another, here's how our Kapoor diva rocked her red carpet looks at the Cannes.

Where? - Festival de Cannes Press Interviews
Wearing - Rimzim Dadu

What we think? - We love the easy breezy blue on Sonam, as she effortlessly carried this Rimzim Dadu number on a sunny day under the clear skies. Blue is one of our favourite picks for this season and with this futuristic saree in shades of blue and black, Sonam got it right! We like how Namrata Soni opted for subtle shades of blue on the eye and a hint of pink on the lips, keeping the overall look very easy going.

Where? - Press Interviews (Day 2)
Wearing: Ralph & Russo

What we think? - One of our personal favourite looks from her off-red carpet moments, Rhea picked this gorgeous Ralph & Russo number for Sonam on a day filled with press interactions. Since it was a day event, her hair was neatly tied into a chic updo and the make up was kept simple. We loved the addition of Christian Louboutin heels and trend cat eye sunglasses (not in picture). Perfect for a day out!

What? - Festival De Cannes red carpet - Mal de pierres screening
Wearing - Ralph & Russo

What we think? - Definitely one of our favourite picks at the Cannes red carpet this year, Sonam simply spelled W.O.W in a stunning custom made Ralph & Russo couture outfit. Heads turned as the actress walked the red carpet, leaving everyone wanting more. The fine detailing on this silk crepe dress, with embroidered silver thread work, silver bullion, beads and crystals stood out among several other outfits. While Namrata opted for nude lips, the eye makeup was where all the action was, as her heavily kohled eyes were well accentuated with highlights created with a white pencil / kajal. Overall, this look was a complete winner!

Wearing - Ralph & Russo

What we think? - Sonam went the Ralph & Russo way once again, this time in a champagne hued gown with a dramatic silk floral organza cape. What we loved about this look was the way Namrata added a classic touch to Sonam's look with a neatly tied bun. Make up was all about hues of pink and nude, keeping it subtle. But of course, it was the custom made gown that won all the applause, which was paired with some gorgeous bling and a pair of Ferragamos.

Where? - Chopard Party
Wearing - Ralph & Russo and Chopard

What we think? - Ah! That's how you nail the classic all black look. We couldn't take our eyes off Sonam in this sheer black Ralph & Russo number (must say, the Kapoor - Ralph & Russo affair continued successfully throughout the festival and the result - some jaw dropping, stunning looks). Sonam looked every inch a diva in the custom made ball gown. The lace gloves and studded Chopard neckpiece added some extra charm to this vintage glam look. While once again, the overall make up was kept simple, bold red lips and sharp eyebrows added some much needed drama. Sonam surely took our breath away in this fantastic look!
