Celebrities Whose Style We Love: Sonam Kapoor
On-screen style icons
Sridevi for her chiffon saris in Mr India (1987) and Madhuri Dixit for her looks in Tezaab (1988).
Slipping into the oddest, most experimental outfits with absolute nonchalance.
Always have fun with fashion, dress for yourself.
First brush with fashion
‘Looking at, learning from and admiring the two style icons in the family – my mother and maasi.’
Phulkari, raw silk and bandhini among many others.
Sartorial thumb rule
‘I wear my clothes, they don’t wear me. Why must I go down a beaten path when I can make my own road?’
Ideal festive look
An ethereal Indian number with nude make-up and soft waves; alternatively an edgier outfit with a glossy hairdo and bold lips.
