Sonam Kapoor’s desi look at Cannes 2013 opening ceremony

So the 66th Festival De Cannes has begun! I don’t know why I’m so excited. Its not like I’m walking down the red carpet or my best friend or anyone whom  know. But I’m excited….who cares why!

Let’s cut all the crap and come straight to the reason I’m writing this post – Sonam Kapoor. After all, there was so much hype after her “look” at cannes that as soon as I got back from college I got on my laptop. I didn’t even wait for my mom to bring me a glass of chilled aam-panna which is saying a LOT in the May Delhi heat!

Sonam’s makeup artist Namrata Soni tweeted this pic while getting her ready for a video shoot with L’Oreal. She wore an Anamika Khanna cropped jacket for the shoot. The look is quite androgynous and I’m liking it.

For the opening ceremony she changed into this desi look by wearing a saree-inspired Huemn dress. She wore big statement earrings by Suhani Pittie, Lanvin flats and a pony tail. This whole look was put together by her sister Rhea Kapoor. (see the 1st pic) I love how she managed this new experiment without making a joke of herself. But yeah she does look great this time….like a tribal princess?

Guess who is in the jury panel this year? Vidya Balan! Yep. Exactly. I dunno how to react.

She arrived at the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez for the opening ceremony wearing a royal red lehenga. International blogs are saying “Vidya Balan Arrives Looking Like A Queen”. Yeah….really! But given her usual Kanjivaram appearances, this IS a good change.

Look who we forgot after Slumdog Millionaire….Frieda baby! I like the dress but the not the girl wearing it.

Look look who else has joined the jury this year. Nicole Kidman looked like a breath of fresh air in a shimmery black shift dress and tie-up heels. Her sleek blunt cut shoulder length bright blonde hair give this edge to the whole look. She is also promoting her film Grace of Monaco at Cannes. Btw I just got to know she is the new face of Jimmy Choo (don’t you love these little tid-bits of info I give….makes me look all aware and knowledgeable. Say yes please!)

She was joined by Steven Spielberg, French actress Audrey Tautou and other jury members.

Amitabh Bachchan too walked the red carpet with The Great Gatsby cast. I only managed to get this picture though.

Updated: I got the photo of The Great Gatsby Screening

  1. why Amisha & sherlyn???

    Frieda pinto is really the luckiest babe! faltu mein she gets all publicized.
    I love your tidbits btw :)

  2. Love Sonam and Vidya. I also think that Freida is over rated, rather his boy should be seen more than her. Ameesha and Sherlyn… My heart is already pounding and can’t imagine what they are going to wear and what no!! yikes!

  3. wow i guess im the only one who thinks that freida is actually underrated?
    i think shes breathtakingly beautiful…yeah no joked i’d kill to look like her!
    her eyes,skintone/texture,bodyshape,bone structure…perfection dude!
    i think aishwarya is the one whos waaay too overrated ¬__¬

    • Everyone has got the right to say whatever they feel. Its a place where I share my thoughts. Infact I don’t stop anyone from expressing their views whether they are like minded or not. But you do need to watch your toungue here. Such words are not tolerated here.

  5. Anshita lol you seem like a freaky jealous girl duh.sonam looked stunning in that vintage saree by anamika khanna.and that green dress worn by freida was awful eew.you just dont have the requisite fashion sense.and yes to which village do you belong?
