Sonam Kapoor Ahuja: Moulding the way through the fashion industry

Sonam Kapoor celebrated her 34th birthday by throwing a party which included her close friends and family. Sonam is nothing less than a diva and over the years she has evolved with her style and makeup. An amazing team of people work behind who make her look all poised on the red carpet and on the other hand, makes her look chic on the streets. She has been spotted wearing designer clothes like Fenty, Maison Valentino, Elie Saab, etc.

Recently she was seen wearing a custom made Ralph and Russo dress at Cannes film festival 2019 for the premiere of ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’.

“When Sonam and I first started talking about this year’s Cannes Film Festival, I suggested right from the start that we go for a tuxedo look as I felt it would be very different for the red carpet, and also something Sonam has never done before—at least on the carpet,” says Tamara Ralph, creative director and co-founder at Ralph & Russo. “Once this was determined, I felt something modern, clean, chic—and a bit sexy—would look amazing on her, and so the white tuxedo was born. I was also inspired by a similar piece from our spring/summer 2019 couture collection,” she adds. The most astounding detail? The piece took a total of 495 hours to create. “Out of the 495 hours, 115 hours were dedicated to pattern cutting, and the remaining 380 to fittings, sewing and alterations,” Ralph reveals.

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja also loves the Indian fashion industry. Recently she was seen wearing a Sabyasachi tuxedo for his new campaign. She is also fond of Masaba Gupta, Good earth, Anamika Khanna, Abujani & Sandeep Khosla, etc. When she started her own brand Rheson her aim was to broaden fashion among young Indian women. She believed in promoting young and new Indian brands.

We can notice her evolution not only in her style of dressing up but also with her make up. She has a team of makeup artist and changes them as per the availability and the occasion. She is very fond of Namrata Soni who has been her make-up artist since the past 20 years and they go hand in hand. Namrata Soni also has her own design school. Currently, she is working with Arti Nayar, who has been her make up artist for quite some time now.

Sonam usually likes to keep things simple and elegant and sometimes bold with her make-up choices. Barely-there eyeliner, glossy rose-tinted lips and soft peach cheeks is her statement style.

We are proud to say that she is a fashion diva recognized worldwide. All the designers wish to have her wear their garments once. She keeps on making new and bold fashion statements and has always taken the Indian fashion industry ahead.
