Who: Indian actress Sonam Kapoor
Where: At the “Jeune & Jolie” premiere during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival at Grand Theatre Lumiere
Wearing: A strapless floral Dolce&Gabbana gown with a voluminous silhouette teamed with matching floral printed heels and a bold necklace
Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – if ever there was a dress made for Barbie this is it!!! I have to bow down to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the Italian duo have really out-done themselves with this gorgeous creation, and it was perfect for the Cannes red carpet.
I have to be honest I wasn’t even sure who Sonam Kapoor was other than an Indian actress, but I think that is the point of Cannes it allows international stars to really shine, it is where I first spotted Fan Bingbing and I can’t get enough of her red carpet looks and I think it is going to be same with Sonam, she looks so beautiful in this gown and I love her hair swept to the side.
It is hard to pull of this voluminous silhouette but Sonam does it with ease and that is what makes the dress even more beautiful, I also adore the matching rose printed heels peeking through.
Taking about this gorgeous dress and why Sonam, Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana, said:
“Sonam Kapoor for us represents the epitome of the Golden Era of Hollywood thanks to her natural elegance, her femininity and class. Those years around the ’50s that have made us dream for so long. For her, we created a Special piece dress that could emphasise her unique beauty.”
This look really does let her beauty shine through and is easily one of my favourites of this years Cannes and we’ve only had two days. It will take some beating, but here’s hoping for more goosebump moments!!!
Hands up – who wants to start an internet campaign to get Mattel to bring out a Dolce&Gabbana Barbie complete with a miniature sized version of this gown?
