A style icon you will see a lot of on The Crimson Bride is Sonam Kapoor. The Bollywood actress is the daughter of the Bollywood actor, Anil Kapoor. Since her foray into films, Sonam's sophisticated fashion style has also enabled her to become one of the leading fashion icons in India and abroad. She is the brand ambassador for L'Oreal India and recently stepped out for some memorable red carpet glamour at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
Sonam's Cannes red carpet choices are the perfect style inspiration for a glamorous reception look.
Many of Sonam's gowns were by Lebanese fashion designer, Elie Saab Couture. How lovely is the powder blue gown with a statement gold necklace - a sophisticated colour for a summer wedding reception.
We also loved Sonam in this black Elie Saab gown channelling some old Hollywood glamour.
Our personal favourite look from the festival, however was definitely the Anamika Khanna saree. The fusion of traditional and contemporary is an absolute showstopper and would make for a stunning reception outfit!
Everything just works - the soft blush colour with the dull gold work on the blouse and pallu, the statement necklace (her mother Sunita Kapoor's), the cape, the simple hair and smokey eye makeup. The Jimmy Choo shoes and Ferragamo clutch complete the look perfectly.
For makeup, Sonam's makeup artist Namrata Soni chose black eyeshadow to highlight her eyes for an evening event and a softer lip colour to balance out the look.
We hope Sonam's Cannes 2014 timeless red carpet look will inspire some chic wedding looks for the upcoming wedding season! Don't forget to share your wedding fashion with us at #thecrimsonbride!
