    Wow she looks stunning but like you said OTT for a book launch. I wish she had worn this over the blue gown she wore yesterday. Would have been understated elegance.

    Arghhhhh, how can she be so perfect!! I love how she makes this dress look so “casual” yet elegant and effortless.

    Omg. She should have worn this for red carpet. Wat a lovely dress!

    This is her best of the three outfits by far. With the best styling too
    Unfortunate that it was relegated to a smaller event

    Major love!! whattta look…
    that being said, my faves on the RED CARPET were in this order – Katrina, Ash, Sonam…
    The harsh bronzer made Sonam look way to weird in the red carpet pics. Wish she chose this look instead.

    Pretty but I feel like the color washes her out. A little lackluster in my opinion!

    Oh! What is with this boob show! Stop it already! And this is not even for the red carpet…this and the laser cut blouse both for talks
    Just feel uncomfortable seeing so much cleavage for interviews…so in your face

    1. Megha at | | Reply

      Good Lord they’re breasts. A regular old body part
      So much discomfort over something every woman possesses and what most babies are nourished from
      Who cares if she’s showing cleavage

      1. Bertie at | | Reply

        Ah hmm what is this comment even supposed to mean?
        Yes we know babies are nourished from breasts, so should every body go about topless?

      I don’t see the problem..She doesn’t look vulgar. Way better & classy than celebrities who drape pallu only on one side and scream for attention. I did not even pay attention to the twins…

      i sooooo agree with you …tooo much sonam kapoor breast show…

    Is it just me or does this dress scream bridal? Some contrast color would have elevated this look.

    Classy look combined with that angelic face…loved it <3

    Dress is nice enough. But I feel we have seen enough of sonam’s boobs to last a month.

    This was THE book launch. It is Cannes. If not there whereelse cana girl be over the top? Sonam is like Fan. They own it! She came as a movie star & elevated the whole event to another level.

    This gown is a DREAM!

    This looks so great on her! The colour and cut is just perfect for her.

    It’s Cannes…It’s Sonam…why shouldn’t she go all out or dress to whatever degree she wants…if there’s anyone whose experiments and choices people look forward to, it’s her!

    looks good but don’t understand why at these international events she has show the cleavage. like really?

  17. tina at | | Reply

    So what happens after they walk the red carpet? Do they go inside the auditorium and watch the selected movies of the festival, or just walk the red carpet and go back to the hotel. Could someone please enlighten me?

    1. Amelia at | | Reply

      In the blue gown, I know Sonam was at the red carpet for the premiere of Sea of Tree, starting Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts. I think the studio that makes the movie being watched also throws a party for the after-premiere. I’m sure these parties are uber glamarious, with fancy delicacies and expensive alcohol being served, where the stars mingle.

    You may think that it’s OTT but there is no denying she looks absolutely stunning. As for the plunging necklines, at least she is not spilling over. LOVE this look

    OMG – she looks lovely. She should have worn this on the red carpet. I would have totally loved it.

  20. frm pdx at | | Reply

    Gorgeous!!!!!!! is it a little too bridal……yes…..but I think that styling is really smart and takes it in a different more fashion direction.

  21. Leila at | | Reply

    How is this OTT? She looks drop dead gorgeous and what’s wrong with a little skin show? She rarely does it for her red carpet appearances in India. Tbh I love this look and I don’t agree with this idea of being over the top – it has a vintage vibe but is still appropriate.

  22. shwetha at | | Reply

    Mallika Sherawat’s debut appearance at Cannes looks prudish compared to Sonam’s repeated attempts at introducing her girls at Cannes this year. Awfully cheap.

    Too bridal. Is she going to marry the book.

      But this is so much better than the blue dress at the red carpet (my least favourite look of hers at Cannes) and the mess that A-S ‘costume’ was on her! Good to see something understated on her.

    in love with this look..love the bun.. love that dress..everything! i am a huge sonam fan..the only thing i didn’t like about that dress is open neck! this dress by itself is so so gorgeous it doesn’t need any kind of skin show! i think the open neck is not required at all! otherwise in lurveee with this look!

    Stunning she looks. Can’t take my eyes off her.

  26. Bina at | | Reply

    Are you kidding me? You don’t have to prove a point here. Just because people accuse you of being biased, doesn’t mean you HAVE to find faults everywhere. She looks really gorgeous and classy here. The dress sits on her frame like it was made for her. The classic understated elegance with that pretty pretty makeup. The only problem I had with that Ralph & Russo gown was the color, it was way too stark for my liking and the makeup, somehow looked unfinished. Otherwise she was spot on. I think THIS however, may be my favorite Cannes look from Bollywood this year so far. Hopefully she will outdo herself on the red carpet tonight and we get a reason to go gaga over her all over again.

    Gorgeous dress.
    But she is always overdressed.

  28. Ranij at | | Reply

    Love this on her but I think so many people are biased here. If anyone else had done this much boob show you would have all said how cheap . Because it’s Sonam you are ok with it!

    She make odinary things in an extraodinary way. Jst love her style anytime favourite

    It’s a stunning dress and Sonam looks great in it. Finally a good choice.

    The theme for her Cannes outings seems to be “LOOK! BOOBS!”

    Her sari yesterday was a little tacky. It’s odd that she would have to rely on nude pasties to cover up, especially considering it was a designer brand and an in built bra and lining would’ve been less eye-sore.

    Her blue gown – the gown itself was quite dramatic and suited opening night but her make up was off. Way too much contouring which is surprising because her make is usually not an issue.

    This outing for book launch – she looks great – make up is spot on, beautiful dress. A little over dressed for a day event and again, boobs, but hey if she wants to show off her boobs at a random book launch then go for it.

    Poor PnP. If they appreciate, they are accused of Sonam bias. If they criticize, they are again accused of Sonam bias. For Sonam posts PnP, I suggest you offer no critique at all. ;-) ;-)

    I like the dress..very elegant.. Plus the bun n make up..yeah a Lil bridal but who cares!! I didn’t like her Saree look…nor the red carpet look

  34. Avani at | | Reply

    Actually she looks good. It was a chef’s book launch so maybe she wanted to look all saucy and creamy. :P As long as the cups don’t runneth over or hanging at the tummy, it doesn’t hit the trashy territory.

  35. Vysh at | | Reply

    Wow she looks amazing. That is honestly one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve seen.

  36. Paroma at | | Reply

    Does she even think about what kind of event she’s going to before she picks her clothes?!!

  37. Sarah at | | Reply

    She looks nice but what’s with the noob display ? She doesn’t need to prove it to everyone that she has boobs

  38. shyba at | | Reply

    Book or Boobs,who got the attention!

    Inappropriate dressing for a book launch! sigh!

  39. Megzz at | | Reply

    What an elegant dress!
    She looks Classy!

  40. shwetha at | | Reply

    UGGH, just plain cheap. I had to say that again. I usually like her sense of style, but this year at Cannes, all I want to say is – Cover up for heavens sake, its not sexy, its not attractive, the prettiness is completely lost. Its just plain in your face classless vulgar. I dont have an issue with evealing clothing. Infact folks have come out quite well even in lesser. But this style and overshow of the dames just makes it plain tacky. Gives a Jennifer Lopez at those decade ol Emmys vibe. Yuck

  41. Sona Hathi at | | Reply

    She looks stunning but imo the look is very bridal and way too much cleavage for a book launch & interview!

  42. ss at | | Reply

    You mean boob launch not book launch. :) Sonam looks amazing and that dress is gorgeous! !

  43. Curious at | | Reply

    I am not a Sonam fan but she looks amazing here. Wish she had worn this on the red carpet instead of that blue gown.
    P&P – Where can we buy beautiful gowns (not very expensive) online/ in Delhi? Also, what material do you recommend for a formal evening ball? Most gowns I am seeing online are chiffon and I am not sure if that would be appropriate. Thanks!

    She worked every bit of the dress .. It’s classy .. Elegant & chic.

    Good look but too OTT for a book launch. She needs to get a grip.
    Also, didn’t Priyanka wear a black version of this recently at some style awards?

  48. June at | | Reply

    She looks fabulous but she’s definitely been showing off her new implants ever since she got them. I think it started from a magazine cover if I’m not mistaken. Of course if I got implants, I’d want to show them off too.

    1. Avani at | | Reply

      Same case as Kangana. She got that new confidence and of course many more clothes choices only after the implants. lol.

    If she’s wearing THIS for a BOOK LAUNCH, can you imagine WHAT she’d wear for her WEDDING?

    very elegant compared to the feathery dress at the Cannes red carpet…but definitely OTT for a book launch…i am loving the sunglasses as well…which brand are these?

  51. Sylviana at | | Reply

    Drop-Dead-Gorgeous..!!And PnP, none of the pics posted here show us what shoes she wore with this.. can you please ID the footwear she opted for?

    Smashing! This is her best at Cannes this year. What a dress! And her make up and styling are faultless. Love the sunglasses. Anybody ID them?
