Sonam Kapoor isn't your standard skinny model size — nor does she have any intention of looking anything other than the healthiest version of curvy herself. What the stylish actress does have unparalleled mastery over is the ability to dress for her shape, while experimenting with fashion. And we could all learn a lesson or two from her.
In the last 24 hours, Sonam and stylist sister Rhea Kapoor have given us two fabulous looks on completely different ends of the style spectrum, but both playing up her best assets.
For an IWC Watches event in Dubai, Sonam's first look was a floor-length gown with a matching jacket from Ashi Studio. The gown's corset bodice helped highlight Sonam's toned waist (read about the diet trick that changed her figure) while the jacket draped over her shoulders made her seem taller and more statuesque. It also narrowed down her shoulders, which can be a point of concern for girls with broad frames.
"Women think of all colours except the absence of colour. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony." — Coco Chanel @IWCWatchesArabia @iwcwatches_india In - @ashistudio Styled by @RheaKapoor Styling Assistants: @chandiniw , @manishamelwani & @spacemuffin27 Hair & Make-up: @namratasoni Hair & Make-up Assistant: @deepti1681 @thehouseofpixel
Not to mention the push-up bra effect of the corset which makes Sonam's cleavage look fantastic.
Less than 12 hours later, Sonam was completely covered up in a Mother Of Pearl pantsuit with slit pants, high-collared denim blouse and a structured jacket. The whole look could have been stuffy and overwhelming, if not for the shape of the jacket that once again drew attention to the waist. The slit pants, paired with those Fendi shoes, add flashes of skin to balance out the whole look.
These are not your average granny's pearls, that's for sure...
Which of the two looks are you dying to try?
