In Elie Saab Couture

94

Sonam walked the red carpet again today at Cannes, this time picking a yellow Elie Saab Couture gown with Chopard ruby drop earrings and a pink lip providing for a contrast.

The gown may have been a Saab (and we love him!), but at first glance itself, I felt no love for it. The feathers at the bust felt rather excessive and between it and the hemline, the gown looked more like a rug.

Rarely does Ms. Kapoor look overwhelmed in an outfit but here, she definitely did.

  3. LOL. That’s all I can say.
    She looks ridiculous. I can’t believe I’m saying this but she should learn from Ash (at Cannes red carpets), how to make a statement without showing up as a clown.

  4. Really disappointing look from Sonam. All that fur on the dress is overwhelming and the material is really heavy. The only good thing about the look is her makeup. She looks lovely face up. I have a feeling this is going to go on the “worst dressed” list of many. I think she should have worn the white dress she wore to the book launch on the red carpet instead.

  5. OMG!!! OMG!!! This is ridiculous. She looks like as if she is going to audition for the movie ‘Bird Woman’. Trying really hard to like this look, but this level of high fashion is beyond me. Sorry Sonam.

  6. of all the dresses at her disposal!!!!a few feathers short of looking like Big Bird…..both her press junket outfits were waay better than the red carpet appearances…….if only they had been swapped!!!!

  7. Hope not to cause a stir but feel like Sonam is trying too har this year to make a statement. Atleast Kat farred better by sticking to what suits her best. Unfortunately, cannes has been rather lackluster so far. Still craving some drama on the red carpet. Hope Aish delivers, but won’t be holding my breath.

  8. In the minority here. But this gown is young, fun, girly, flamboyant and Sonam wears it quite well actually. Somehow reminds me of her ‘Milli’ character in Khoobsurat. Other pics on some websites show the lovely sequinned work on the gown. The feathers covering the bust (after all, some of us did grumble about her prior cleavage issues) do look awkward at certain angles but frames her face quite well.

      • No, can’t say I have been actually. Guilty, of partiality to Sonam’s fashion antics. And why not. In terms of fashion she’s one of the first to be bold, experimental, fun and yes a little weird…and there’s nothing wrong that.

        • Being a fan is one thing and practising fanaticism is another. :P

          Trying out things in an attempt to be unique doesn’t make one fashion forward. She has no personal sense of style. Period. The biggest and the most important miss. There goes the fashionista tag down the drain already!

    • I liked her look too.. If any Hollywood star would have worn it, people would have fell in love with it.. It’s great that she’s trying..

  9. I totally agree with you guys about the first look. I about died! Saab dress or not i wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot poll, but after seeing all the pics i honestly think she worked it without being overwhelmed. I loved the choice of jewelry and lip color

  10. Rhea let her go out like this? Why didn’t someone tell her this was way too overwhelming? Sonam is so beautiful and she didn’t deserve to look like a clown. Her team let her down. :(

  11. I cant get my head around her choice this time around.
    Voluminious feather can work really well but WITH all that embellishment AND on the hem?

    Her lipstick colour doesn’t work and she looks tired again.
    Not a fan of her :trimmed” eyebrows either.
    Am i being overtly scathing? everything is so magnified on the red carpet I guess that why every detail needs to be attended to.

    Who does her make up at Cannes?
    This is the prime example of a very Indian looking girl unable to work Haute Couture.

  12. I don’t mind the feathers. But they could have been in a richer, more sumptuous colour. All that comes to mind now is a pool of throw-up.

  13. I think Freida Pinto’s feathered dress from last year was an inspiration for this choice! I’m not surprised she chose it. These days i feel like i can read Sonam/Rhea like a book!
    Not a nice gown but she will get some attention for it and i think attention is all she’s seeking.

  15. I think she has finally jumped the shark. And I for one am glad.
    Maybe now he mainstream press would heed  Shabana Azmi’s advice & pay equal enough attention to the indian movies being screened at Cannes.

  16. Yikes – I was waiting for her to blow us away after the risk she took with the Ralph and Russo. But sadly I don’t like this look at all. The color is awful – mossy, yellowy almost looks like pus!!!! I think its the lining that’s making a difference, because on the runway – the color doesn’t look all that revolting. Apart from all the frou frou, I have an issue with the length in the front. It is barely grazing the ground. It needed a couple more inches to offset all the drama happening up top. I have looked through quite a few pics – and I cannot get on board with this look – at all!!

  18. To me it just looks like she’s really tired. If you look at her pics from Cannes 2014. She looks fresh and young and she’s killing it with every look. This time though, even her make up isn’t good enough to hide it. It’s just distracting.

  19. Amazing she is still smiling….if I was wearing that outfit for whatever reason… I would forget how to smile. Some of the comments have been really hilarious. Thanks sonam n rhea for providing the laughs.

  20. This is the mother of all the whattheheyys put together. Quick Sonam fly away to the nearest nest available.

    I have always felt that her fashion sense is over hyped. This dress just cements my view.

  21. Big bird called, he wants his feathers back. If she can ever come around to show some maturity, dignity, elegance and poise when she truts her stuff, I’ll beleive she’s an icon. Right now to me she’s nothing more than a rich man’s daughter playing dress up with the fanciest of clothes wearing the most juvenile stupid smile just because she can afford to.

  22. I’m on the fence about the gown. HOWEVER, I think Sonam carries it off really well. The outfit isn’t wearing her, she’s wearing the outfit! She has the right attitude, the right grace and she accessorised it beautifully. She looks statuesque. She makes this work.

    I love all of Sonam’s looks this year. She truly brings DRAMA to the red carpet and each one of her looks were excitable and had this diva factor.

  23. LOL! Thanks for the laughs all… Some of the comments crack me up :)

    That aside, she reminds me even celebrities are not exempt from tired droopy eyes, dark circles, wrinkles and bags…!

  24. OMG ! She didn’t !! No she didn’t. And she calls herself a fashion icon. Things that come to my mind upon seeing this monstrosity
    Giant hen
    Sesame Street
    A yellow ostrich
    A feather duster
    I could go on ……. Ugh

  25. Aishwarya rai is the clear winner of canne 2015. Elegant and not trying too hard. Atleast she doesn’t seem desperate.

  26. Okay, looking overwhelmed is the politest way PnP could have said it and it really is the least of her problems here. I have never looked at a post on HHC and said Wheeeeewwwww what happened there! But that is exactly my reaction after looking at this. Definitely on the worst dressed lists and definitely ‘THE worst dressed’

  27. While Rihanna looked like a fried omlette at the recent MET gala..Sonam took it a notch further and decided to be a chicken.. on an aside my face and hair look like this when i don’t bath and go to any function/event.

  28. The more I look at it, I feel the gown is a light shade of lime green and not yellow. Unless my eyes can’t be trusted, I believe that is the shade displayed in the designer’s website.

  29. Perkier feathers as seen on the runway could have saved the dress…as opposed to looking like an afterthought here.

  30. Beyond ridiculous
    Girls this is not a fancy dress competition or a costume ball for Pete’s sake. Sonam is unvited for next Cannes already….

  31. Omgggggg WTF !!!
    I hate it … Neva in a million yrs would I think Sonam will wear this.
    She shud have saved the white dress for today and not the book launch.

  32. Well this is just ridiculous! Is this some sort of in joke between her and Big Bird. Did she and Big Bird play drinking games all night and did he then proceed to throw up on her? Seriously.

  33. Well, at least one question has been put to rest after seeing this… Which came first? Rihanna’s omelette, then Sonam’s plucked chicken.

  34. Hands down the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen Sonam wear. It’s a pity she decided to pull one of these at Cannes. Sigh!

  35. OMG. I wish I hadn’t seen this. And then she herself claims, “I myself feel I am a fashionista as I like to experiment and I understand fashion.” God bless her..

    Well, girl, this dress is beyond understanding. Wish you had saved that white dress for this day. :(

  36. She looks like she is trying too hard. She should tone it down a notch or two. I appreciate Aishwarya’s easy breezy attitude much more.

  37. One word comes to mind…..BIGBIRD!!!!!!! The dress would have looked a little better if the fur/feathers around the neckline had been taken off.

  38. Now ! They blame the designer!! What about the so called hyped fashionista who choose to step out in that creation! If this was not sonam you guys would have killed the celeb by your words but you guys are so predictable when it comes to sonam!!! This definitely deserves a WTHeyy & a straight entry to the worst dressed list!!

  39. there is an uncanny resemblance between her look and that of a newly hatched pigeon egg…she puts even lady gaga to shame!!!

  40. i still like Sonam…She brings drama to the red carpet. I will take this over Kat’s safe & boring looks any day. The comments up here cracked me up. Loreal Paris, please get Kangana to Cannes. It would be awesome to see her rock the red carpet.

  41. I think most here are very acidic. Sonam looks beautiful. The gown may not be the best she has worn but its not a fashion disaster either. It has got a young and cheery vibe and Sonam makes it work. There is a feather overdose but its not an eyesore. Had it been a shoulder-less gown, it would have been more appealing. Trust me noone can make this work but Sonam, maybe thats y they chose her for this outfit. At one look, not something we would choose but keep looking -its not repulsive.
    She looks radiant as ever.

  42. As much as I don’t like the dress, I don’t hate it, but my only gripe with it is that the feathers at the bust are excessive. But more than that, even if it was a gorgeous dress, I cannot get over how bad her make up has been during most of the outings. But anyway, good effort Sonam.

  43. ???? eeks! The usually spot on Sonam misses this time. She’s given us plenty of amazing looks in the past. She’s human and entitled to a faux pas or two.
