Sonam Kapoor wears her all-time favourite labels

Fashion consumes her and she’s happy to burn in its bright, flattering light

Bollywood’s most stylish actor counts off the labels that are making her hot-list right now:


“I strongly believe Australian designers are the ones to watch out for. Their designs are simple, feminine and very modern. What I love most is the innovative play on textiles. Maticevski defines the whole street-meets-high-fashion movement.”


“I find it hard to place a brand like Delpozo on the regular fashion scene—maybe that’s what attracted me to it in the first place. The silhouettes are not dictated by the times. You know, you can either be trendy or set trends, and Delpozo definitely fits into the latter category.” 

Ashi Studio

“My sister found Ashi Studio on Instagram and showed it to me. It was instant love. There’s a certain over-the-top element to their clothes but they still have an air of decadence and glamour. I mean, look at this dress I’m wearing—what’s not to love!”

Ulyana Sergeenko

“I love that she really understands a woman’s body, so every single one of her outfits is stunning in fit and feel. There’s a sexiness to her designs but it’s not there to titillate men. It’s to highlight a woman’s confidence.”

Stella McCartney

“I wear a lot of Stella, I end up buying something every season. I identify a lot with her designs and they look really good on me. She’s a fantastic designer, but I don’t think she gets her due—maybe it’s because of her famous parents.”

Louis Vuitton

“When I see [Nicolas Ghesquière's] designs I think of modern museums and abstract art. His approach to clothes is very architectural and though he’s French, there’s something very modern American about his clothes, which are simple with a futuristic edge.”
