You know you are in for a sartorial surprise when Sonam Kapoor is at the Cannes International Film Festival every year. This year marks her eighth stint and as the newly married Sonam Kapoor Ahuja took to the red carpet tonight, she looks every bit of her resplendent self! For her, keeping up with a calendar filled with engagements all whilst looking glamorous is easy- Sonam Kapoor never disappoints and keeps things lively just like it’s any other day! There is a plausible reason why Sonam is the millennial bonafide fashionista of Bollywood! Her sheer presence can make a statement – Sonam Kapoor is back with her fashion squad, this time at the feted 71st Cannes International Film Festival 2018. Flitting seamlessly from one frenzied affair – her big fat Indian wedding (a gala affair, of course!) to the Mecca of cinema and fashion, Sonam Kapoor is a woman to reckon with! Life is never dull for Sonam as the face for the cosmetic giant, L’Oreal. With Rhea Kapoor, Sonam’s younger sister and a fashion maverick, at the helm of affairs, the duo unfailingly schools us on all that’s in vogue with styles that have only evoked a WOW. Sonam left for Cannes sporting. For the red carpet appearance today, Sonam opted for. Tonight, Sonam Kapoor made a poignant point for the contemporary bride in a Ralph & Russo ensemble coupled with that bridal glow, subdued elegance and hennaed hands in tow on the red carpet!
Walking the red carpet with a whiff of confidence, a regal air about her and posing for the shutterbugs, Sonam set the mood for the red carpet tonight. Here’s a closer look at her stunning vibe.
Sonam Kapoor – The Contemporary Bride!
Sonam donned a customised ivory ensemble by her favourite designers, Ralph & Russo featuring an embroidered blouse with sheer sleeves and an exaggerated detail on one side and a voluminous skirt. The sleeve detail gave a lovely impression of a dupatta falling on one side to the whole ensemble.

A subtle makeup of defined eyes, pink lips and highlighted cheekbones, courtesy her go-to makeup artist Namrata Soni rounded out her sleek look.
Bollywood Hungama Style Take – Sonam Kapoor
The diva had a fairy-tale wedding with beau Anand Ahuja on May 8 and regaled us with her exquisite bridal avatars. Keeping up with the bridal fervour, we love how Sonam channelled the whole thing on an international scene – quite a style risk and a stunt to say the least!
The intricate details on the opulent creation earn this look an A while the makeup and hair game simply elevate the look further! A creation that boasts of contemporary as well as traditional details, this ensemble is sure to spark off ideas for all the would-be brides! As Sonam proudly showed off her intricate henna design, which was etched across her hands – a move that was lauded by fashion gurus, including Vogue USA. The traditional Indian form of body art, which the actress also wore at her fairytale wedding to businessman Anand Ahuja just one week prior, was accompanied by a nude manicured and a new wedding ring.”
