Inside Sonam Kapoor’s star-studded shoe wardrobe
Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Roger Vivier and some more Jimmy Choo
“It’s not a responsibility to be a fashion diva. I enjoy getting up in morning and putting on make-up, getting ready. I don’t think there is any girl who doesn’t like to look good and wear good clothes,” Sonam Kapoor declared once. But if you thought that her clothes rack had enough luxury labels to sustain another edition of the Paris Fashion Week, there’s always her star-studded shoe collection to put things in perspective.
From Jimmy Choo pumps to come-hither thigh-high boots, Sonam is a sucker for a good pointy heel, but she won’t discriminate against the Gucci loafers either. Here are the ones dotting her wall of fame.
All the statement shoes Sonam Kapoor loves
But if she must indulge her inner princess, Sonam will only do it in Sophia Webster’s dainty pencil heels — The famous Chiara butterfly found its way into her wardrobe during the Neerja promotions in the form of pointed suede boots.
Give a girl the right shoes, and she’ll take over the world. Or at least your Instagram feed. Sonam found a winner in the Gucci 1953 horsebit loafers and has yet to take them off. From her annual Cannes appointments to quick getaways with her girl squad, her travel case probably has these tan beauties surgically attached.
What’s a Bollywood A-lister without a towering stack of Jimmy Choo beauties in her wardrobe? While Sonam is helpless before a good pointed pump from the iconic shoemaker, she isn’t afraid to step out in her flat Fiona Gold sandals either.
Take a good, long look at her over-the-knee stunners and tell us, in all honesty, if you blame Sonam for being unable to choose just one at Stuart Weitzman. After picking up a pair of their highland boots in staple black, she most likely threw in the purple ones as an impulse buy at the counter.
Cinderella can keep her glass slipper; Sonam would much rather slide on a pair of Maison Margiela’s showstopper thigh-high boots, thank you very much. Not long airport queues, nor hellish layovers can deter her from taking her leather babies out for a spin while travelling.
Friends come and friends go in the fickle world of showbiz, so we guess it’s just as well that Sonam has found a steadfast companion in her Roger Vivier pumps. The 32-year-old debuted her two-toned pick from the French powerhouse at Cannes in 2012, and has since anointed them a permanent spot in her wardrobe.
