7 easy breezy celebrity looks and the designers behind them
You'll want to add these labels to your arsenal this summer
Even though the week was low on red carpet opportunities, celebrities didn’t disappoint when it came to giving us more reason to spend hours finding out how we can emulate their looks in real life and not look like we’re ready for early Halloween. The clear winner of the lot is Sonam Kapoor, who gave us back-to-back home runs in #OOTD looks from tried-and-tested brands like Gucci to the internet-breaking denim sari by Masaba Gupta.
Kangana Ranaut’s double outing in stripes followed as a close second in Fendi.
Sonam Kapoor wears some of our favourite celebrity looks this week
Sonam Kapoor's Paule Ka look at the Kaabil screening brought back memories of the time when not accessorizing your look with an over-sized belt was almost blasphemous. If you love your personal style to be as comfortable as it's chic, then you need to add Paule Ka to your arsenal. The French ready-to-wear brand, helmed by Central Saint Martins alum Alithia Spuri-Zampetti, takes classic everyday clothes and gives them a decidedly French twist.
The Italian luxury brand went full on '80s with their Spring 2017 collection at the Milan Fashion week, with the silhouettes and prints like Sonam Kapoor's head-to-toe Gucci look for the Raees screening. Also, don't miss the belt. Do we sense a pattern here?
Sister and stylist extraordinaire Rhea Kapoor is behind most of Sonam Kapoor's looks. Turns out, it was also Rhea who had the idea for the denim sari designed by Masaba Gupta that's taking over the internet right now. "Basically, Rhea (Kapoor) called and said ‘we should do a denim sari!’, and honestly, this is how me and her work. She’ll call me and be like ‘Oh my god! I have an idea. It’ll spin off from there and then the brainstorming follows.There was even a conversation about a denim bra but we finally came down to the denim sari and I just did my version of it," admits designer Masaba Gupta in an interview. "We went for Japanese-inspired oversized pants and of course, I managed to put my print on it too — an abstract Ganesha motif," she added.
Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko made her way into Sonam Kapoor's list of 'All-time favourite labels'. “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,” Sonam admitted in our September 2016 issue. Priyanka Chopra's selection for her appearance on Live With Kelly is proof of the label's departure from the almost costume-like creations, including heavy corsets, associated with it in the past.
Mihailo Anusic, the brain behind Serbian label 'Mihano Momosa', cites Vera Wang as one of the major style inspirations for his designs and it's evident from the romantic wedding gowns that he is known for. Anusic is obsessed with the idea of a modern fairy tale and his collections feature timeless pieces of classic feminine silhouettes. "I create for any woman who sees herself as unique, she is self-confident, brave, and mature, but she acknowledges her inner-child and doesn’t give up on her childhood dream of being a princess," he says.
One of the heroes of Fendi's SS17 collection was stripes: Horizontal, vertical, big, narrow and all kinds of stripes. Kangana Ranaut stepped out this week in not one but two Fendi looks and showed why we should be getting behind stripes too.
