Sonam Kapoor named as one of the 500 people to influence the world of fashion
Sonam Kapoor has always been on the news for her fashion sense more than her movies. That she has a natural talent for fashion, was evident from the first time that the Indian actress made an appearance in Cannes 2011, as one of the global faces of LOreal.
Although, she has a impressive 10 films in her 6 years of short film career, yet she is touted as India's fashion diva. This fact has been further emphasized by the international online portal Business
of India, where she is named as one of the 500 fashion makers of the world. To be placed alongside Anna Wintour, Christian Louboutin is an honour in itself and shows the actresses influence in the world
of fashion, not only in India
but also in the international arena. Apart from this, she is also the first Indian actress to be placed in this list. This is a yearly survey that draws out 500 people worldwide, who influence the world of the fashion.
In an interview to the same portal, Kapoor talks about her first Cannes experience. She said, “My sister Rhea, who was styling me, sent emails to many international designers. There were a lot of designers who didn’t know me and we didn’t hear from them at all. But to my delight, Jean Paul Gaultier
responded and sent an archival couture piece. Gaultier took a chance on me and somehow, in a strange way, I feel his dress pushed me into the limelight. I got great reviews
that year. The next year I wore Alexander McQueen.” The rest we can all say is history.
The actress, who is known for her quick tongue and her straightforward nature is also about to launch her own fashion line with her sister Rhea Kapoor. The aforementioned fact would only enhance her chances of making a good business globally. If one follows the svelte actress in Twitter, people will not fail to notice that she hands out fashion tips quite freely to her fans and gives good advises.
Lately, she was seen wearing an animal print pantsuit with big earloops in the GQ Awards of the year. Although, she was praised for her choice of dress, not every time she is appreciated. In the recent Cannes festival, she was spotted wearing a nath with her sari, which was not liked by many and many called it a fashion faux pas. She hates going with the herd and no one would find her dead in a bandaged dress says the actress when asked.
