She’s perhaps the first and the last name when it comes to haute couture in India. Dazzling in dreamy and dramatic creations handmade in ateliers is nothing new to her. Always surprising the style junkies with her fashion choice, she’s the ultimate talking point on the red carpet be it Cannes or fashion week. Now the style maven Sonam Kapoor will be closing the Ralph & Russo Autumn Winter 2017/2018 couture show in Paris.
Toast of Paris
The National award-winning actress will also be attending the after-soirée at the beautiful Pavillon Cambon in Paris, a ball themed ‘Beasts & Beauties’. In true Parisian style, the ladies will wear ball gowns and men black tailcoats and masks. Fans will definitely look forward to her Insta updates. The acclaimed luxury fashion house, over the years, has gathered an impressive clientele, including an enviable number of Hollywood A-listers and names from business and politics among others.
Will it be a floor sweeping train silhouette or will it be a sweetheart neckline? Is it going to be monochromatic or a vibrant colour? The details of the showstopper outfit for the evening have been kept under wraps, inside sources reveal it will be nothing short of spectacular.
Sonam has a deep fondness for the brand and was the first Indian celebrity to sport a Ralph and Russo creation at the Cannes Festival 2015. In an interview with After Hrs, Sonam had shared how she’s shared a great friendship with Tamara Ralph from the couture house. “Tamara is a very dear friend of mine. And I always like wearing new designers and I am one of the few artistes in India to explore international brands — be it Zimmerman, Dice Kayek, Proenza Schouler, Rosie Assoulin or Toni Maticevski. Having worn Ralph and Russo for so long, I have a developed great relationship with them.” Sonam was also accompanied by the co-founders, Tamara Ralph & Michael Russo, at the amfAR gala at the recent Festival de Cannes 2016. Later that year, she also graced the front row at the luxe label’s couture show in Paris. Her runway showstopper act will definitely be something to watch out for.
