Classic at Cannes
L’Oreal brand ambassador Sonam attended The Artist premiere at the 64th Annual Cannes Interntaional Film Festival in the form-fitted net gown and teamed it up with Chopard earrings, an Amrapali ring and peep-toe heels by Salvatore Ferragamo.
More than her dress, it was her shapely body that attracted eyeballs. Designer Nil of label Dev R. Nil, who designed one of her the dresses for a press conference at Cannes, thinks she made a brave choice in choosing a dress which was different from Indian sensibilities.
“She has gone for a very classic and vintage look. I think it was quite a brave choice considering such an architectural draping and completely non-embroidered gown which was quite contrary to the Indian sensibilities. The gown was beautiful and well-constructed, highlighting her well enhanced figure. Also her hair-do and make up was kept very minimal keeping in mind her face and bone structure,” Nil said.
“She also wore a one piece shift gown which was very beautiful, and on another occassion, a lovely polka dotted silk sari with a shirt inspired blouse designed by good friend Masaba Gupta. She is a style icon in herself and she proved it once again,” he added.
