Bollywood Fashion Update: Double Fashion Assault on Sonam Kapoor via Priyanka Chopra and Cousin Parineeti!!!

WHO: Priyanka and Parineeti Chopra take on Fashion Icon Sonam Kapoor’s style

WHAT: Fashion Showdown

WHEN: June 9th

WHERE: 2012 IIFA Awards in Singapore

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Sonam Kapoor’s debut on the international scene at last year’s Cannes Film Festival was a big deal for the Indian fashion circuit and perhaps even globally as many international designers such as Prabal Gurung, Victoria Beckham & Jean Paul Gaultier (whom she wore for her debut) began to open their eyes to the baby fashion darling. That said, stylists for both Parineeti & Priyanka Chopra must have known what the were doing when they decided to place both actresses in statements already made by Kapoor. Excuse me while I gasp, if no stylists were involved. I think Priyanka wearing the Dolce & Gabbana dress (previously worn by Kapoor at Cosmopolitan’s Fun & Fearless Female Awards) is actually forgivable because in the long run designers want their clothes to be worn by as many people as possible. It is her cousin Parineeti’s fashion faux pas that took the whole ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ thing to a whole other level. SHE IS WEARING A JATIN VARMA THAT LOOKS LIKE A PLAGIARISED KNOCK-OFF OF THE JEAN PAUL GAULTIER KAPOOR WORE AT CANNES…LAST YEAR. Should stars be caught wearing knock-offs? Should designers dressing stars be caught allegedly borrowing from other designers? It is one thing to do something like this on a regional level but at an award show that takes place at an international venue where the foreign press is invited? There are pictures on Getty for crying out loud!

No You “CANNES” Not Get Lost in Fabric: Three Fashion Offenders from the Cannes Fashion Scene

I’m at a loss here, am I missing something? Why are these tall, statuesque & beautiful fashionistas drowning themselves in fabric every chance they get? First it was Sonam Kapoor, two nights ago in Naeem Khan, then last night the style-flu plagued two more victims as the amFAR gala; French actress Bernice Bejo in an ocean of Giambattista Valli & prom ready swimsuit model Kate Upton in a royal blue three-step-skirted Louis Vuitton. Yes, it’s classy to cover up your bits ladies but please don’t show up looking like the mother-of-the-bride before your time.

Sonam Kapoor in a black and white Naeem Khan gown on Day 8 of Cannes 2012

Sonam Kapoor in a black and white Naeem Khan gown on Day 8 of Cannes 2012

Actress Sonam Kapoor (seen here with John Nollett at the L’Oreal and Chopard party last night) always manages to look great in anything she opts to wear but for some reason this Naeem Khan design appears to be wearing her to the prom. She is tall & very slim-fit therefore she can afford to and should always stick to figure defining silhouettes (think Charlize Theron & Nicole Kidman), solid colours and simple cuts. That bow on her shoulder appears to be eating her alive and there is enough fabric in the hoop of her skirt to clothe two other able-bodied fashionistas.

Style Profile: Around the Fashion World with Sonam Kapoor – Global Fashion Week Special


Sonam Kapoor (daughter of international actor Anil Kapoor) has been a hot topic ever since she debuted into the Bollywood (India’s) film fraternity back in 2007. While these days she is more famous for her fashion forays than her films, here’s a look at how the up and coming fashionista has dressed to impress in the past few weeks on the fashion circuit as fashion week’s newest front-row IT-Girl

Cutesy Couture Front Row at the Jean-Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2012 Haute Couture collection show in Paris

I didn’t even bother to check the dictionary to see if “cutesy” is an actual word or slang, these ladies were seriously styling front-row at the JPG S/S 2012 show that I had to run and report it, so please pardon any jargon. 🙂

Sonam Kapoor & Freida Pinto Take Paris by Storm in Chanel at the Grand Palais Chanel Paris-Bombay Show


Okay, so technically Freida Pinto is not a Bollywood actress but that has never stopped the media from pegging her as a one despite the fact that she has never appeared in a Bollywood film thus far, so I’m just going to jump on that bandwagon for the sake of this post. I would be more politically correct and say “Indian Actress” but that does not rhyme with my catch phrase. 

More importantly, just how tall is Sonam Kapoor? Just look at how she towers  above Freida Pinto like a supermodel. Even in what looks like at least three or four-inch heels on Pinto.

Both Pinto and Kapoor were beautifully draped in Chanel at the Paris-Bombay show by Chanel in Paris on Tuesday night, each woman sporting a design from the Spring 2012 Collection.
