    I was a bit disappointed with this look..the bottom half of gown did it for me.May be i was expecting a bit more…she had set the bar real high last time :)

    Love the color but dislike the gown. No good .except for the neckline.

    After that ridiculous Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, Sonam knocks this one out.of.the.park! Matchy shoes yes, and that makeup is a tad harsh/overdone, but overall, she looks AMAZZZING! This makeup makes her look older and harder in the face – wish they had toned it down a notch, but again, overall, what a color and she carries it off with aplomb!

    Love the color but not a fan of the bottom half of the dress. Also, I miss her signature sweet smile. All this pouting is so not her!

    The gown is not only ugly but it photographs horribly. It looks like some cheap shiny material with a weird train . The blue is too jarring against the red carpet
    The make up is too dark against the coral lips which don’t suit her. Her concealer fails her and why did she have to dye her gorgeous hair that ghastly shade of brown ?
    Blue shoes with a blue dress? Too matchy- this is abit of a miss in my book. The only redeeming factor is her hair which no doubt is stunning

      Being a loreal brand ambassador, she might b wearing hair colour frm company’s chocolate factory collection..!

    The make-up is off…particularly the contouring and eye make up. She could have done so much better!

    Gorgeous color! Love the hair, jewelry and shoes but yes, her eye make-up could have been better.

    I don’t know what went wrong from the hotel to the red carpet but there’s a vast difference. The pics shared by Rhea on Instagram shows a glamazon with perfect make up. The pics shared by you shows a tired ageing Sonam Kapoor. Also in the insta pics the position of the gown on the shoulders is perfectly accentuateing the sweetheart neckline but at the red carpet, somehow it has shifted up really high on the shoulder – maybe coz of her posing? I would like to ignore the red carpet pics as in the hotel pics, Sonam did knock it outta the ball park. Btw has Ralph & Russo managed to steal Elie Saab’s Cannes thunder this year or what??

      Well they can also correct their own photos before putting them on Instagram with all kind of filters and Photoshop. Red carpet photos are more unforgiving. I love the colour on her . It’s amazing and I love her hair but I don’t like the gown . Very disappointed .

    Stunning gown. Stunning colour. Trashy make-up. Ruins everything!! She looked stunning in the insta posts, but with all the flashes it’s baaad!!

    1. Tania at | | Reply

      The bootom half of the gown and the bad makeup ruins it for me.

  11. kanchanmasi at | | Reply

    She looked amazing! Perfect choice! Incredible shoes!!!

    Its not the makeup thats bad, Sonam naturally has very dark circles around her eyes. If you see her instagram pics of going to cannes without heavy makeup you will notice the discolouration.

    I guess even L’oreal makeup couldn’t hide it.

    As much as i can’t stand Sonam’s personality i cannot fault this look of hers! Big kudos to Rhea.

    I agree with the comments that the instagram pix by both Sonam and Rhea look so much better than these red carpet pix. In those, the blue looks a royal blue and the make up is on point. I do like this look of hers. Her hair looks amazing and that dress fits her like a glove. Unfortunately, it didn’t photograph very well on the red carpet.

    Agree about the eye makeup. She looks tired. Love the cobalt blue. Striking

  16. Brand-ish at | | Reply

    Surprised that you guys didn’t point out the terrible makeup! So hard to look past it..even if you do (which took a huge effort in itself), there is just more disappointment ahead in the form of that blue gown. Huma wore a similar silhouette gown not too long ago and had to face a lot of flak, but with Sonam people tend to digest an out-there fashion statement more easily :P

  17. Macy at | | Reply

    We now know that Loreal’s make up cant hide fatigued eyes and bags :( Too bad. The red against bright blue is too jarring and clashy. Love the dress and shoes though. Jane Fonda though – oh la la.

  18. lazyu at | | Reply

    No complaints about her outfit but it’s her makeup that’s annoying me. I know South Asian makeup artists paint people a shade or two lighter so this is her non-whitewashed self. That’s noticeable but not the issue. It’s the bad orange contouring (okay the blush is orange which is making the contour look orange too) which is just unacceptable and the fact that her dark circles are on the verge of showing up. She’s the brand ambassador for a makeup brand so that’s unacceptable too. They should know how to deal with dark circles.

    Sonam if you read this please please do not get your make up by gora make up artist, cause they always over do it. There are not use working with our skin. next time take your own make up artist.
    Royal blue is also not our color. You could have worn something more soft color.
    your hair was good.
    Listen even Katrina make wasn’t great either.

    Meanwhile katrina Kaif made it to as ‘dont’ list for awful hair colour and dress in nypost.

    dark circles under her eye are so visible in her close up pics.. unfortunate.. an updo, beautiful eye make up and a nude lip.. we would be singing a different tune..

  22. Vysh at | | Reply

    Love the colour but the make up is horrendous. Plus the gown isn’t that great.

  23. frm pdx at | | Reply

    The top half is OK, the bottom half looks like she wrapped a satin sheet around herself. Also the blue fabric photographs very cheap.

    The gown is from a spring collection. To me the overall styling does not look ‘ spring’ from any angle. The whole look feels heavy, not fresh, jarring :( The gown is heavy duty and to balance it out I think an updo and lighter ear rings would have helped.
    P nP with such a voluminous gown for anybody else most probably you would have said an updo was needed!

  38. Slc at | | Reply

    She looks great. I love the gown…the color is striking and just different, accentuates her small waist. Makeup could have been better, but it’s not disastrous.

  39. Sara at | | Reply

    I don’t love it, I don’t hate it. The hair’s good but looks a little fake, and that is some aggressive bronzer going on there. The colour of the dress is great but something about Sonam of late just leaves me cold.

  40. Food Poisoned Attorney at | | Reply

    I don’t think this dress is working on her! Its meant for someone more slender especially if you see the picture in the look book on the model and the hair is competing with the gown! And you pointed out the make-up already but I thought it looked unfinished. Sorry Sonam, we know you can do better!

    She’s lovely and this colour suits her very well. Sonam knows perfectly how to walk on the red carpet with confidence as compared to Katrina Kaif!

    Actually I expected much much better. The dress is forgettable and super messy. I just feel the dress is wearing her instead of the other way round.

    Collar bones are supposed to be sexy. Hers are plain scary! Can’t see anything else.

    Too busy. The gown is horrible. She should have put her hair up or at the least pulled it away from the neckline. The gown with all its folds and her waves and the bad makeup….fail!!

    I am not usually a fan of Sonam as I feel she is often over styled (for example her last Abu Sandeep monstrosity) but this is breathtaking! Come on folks, lets give credit where it is due. Ralph and Russo are one of the most exclusive couturiers in the world. The fabric ain’t cheap- it photographed a little shiny in some pictures. Her eye make up is okay too (not a deal breaker). What an upgrade from Katrina. Now I am anxious to see what Aishwarya brings to the red carpet.

  50. LCoodly at | | Reply

    The gown is lovely. Orange lips and an Azure dress on a dusky complexion was not chic at first glance. But the look kind of grew on me. Glad Sonam took a risk. She is a beautiful girl.

    That last pose with the train is hilarious. The hair is tacky so is the makeup. But she looks okay in that gown because of her height. As for all the people talking about how good she looks in Insta. Obviously, the filters always help, they can make anything look good. Most pictures posted on here is always her filtered ones except for these.

    Uhm I’m sorry but this is really quite a fail. Colour doesn’t suit her skin tone, material photographs terribly, and make up is tacky and she looks so sad and tired. I much preferred breezy knot and relaxed nude face and the Ashi dress on day 2 at the India pavilion book release.
    It is Sonam not Aishwarya who looks like the aunty here- wrt her catty comment on Ms Rai some time back.

    Guess the hair, haircolour and makeup are to blame. This look dint pack the punch which her last year’s Anamika one did.

    This blue is not for her complexion,…a pastel shade would have worked better….but as many wrote, the pics Rhea shared were far different than these, she looked prettier there…these show a worn out look.
