Sonam Kapoor‘s unapologetic love for fashion is what sartorial legends are made of. India’s poster girl for fashion knows her couture yet maintains a heady balance between her love for international labels and Indian couturiers and with this has transformed red-carpet style in India.
Sonam Kapoor has now turned into a fashion chameleon for Vogue India, on the occasion of their 10th anniversary, as they crowned her “Fashion Icon of the Year”. With a stunning a cover shoot with creative photoshoot, Sonam paid tribute to legendary fashion icons including Marlene Dietrich, known for her glamorous persona and bedroom eyes, Madhubala, considered at her time one of the most stunning women in the world, the Dutch exotic dancer and courtesan Mata Hari and Frida Kahlo, the Mexican artist whose style continues to influence designers even after decades.
Says Sonam Kapoor, “As an actor, you create an idea of yourself through emotions, expressions, dialogues but also through clothes. When you look back at history to define an era, you look back at fashion. All icons of their time had elements in their dressing that stood out.”
On the professional front, Sonam Kapoor is busy with the shooting of Veere Di Wedding in New Delhi. Directed by Shashanka Ghosh and produced by Rhea Kapoor and Balaji Motion Pictures, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.
