At the charity gala, Sonam was seen in a Elie Saab Couture gown from the Spring 2016 collection. This particular collection had quite a few looks that featured the draped sari pallu element. As you can see her gown had that shirt meets a lehenga feel to it.
Now, we know Sonam loves her Elie Saab and I can see why she picked this particular piece from the collection. She probably thought this would be a great way to wear something Couture and still add that desi touch.
Except, we really think A) she should’ve gone with an Indian designer (where is an Anamika Khanna when you want one!) or B) just picked something different from the collection. This gown really didn’t seem to translate that well off the runway. Not only did it feel uber costumey, it made a really tall girl like Sonam look like she was 4 feet tall. She didn’t look statuesque at all.
As you can tell, we weren’t fans. :P
Update: Sonam made it to Saif’s party which is where the third set of pics is from.
