So, as our style encyclopedia adds another glorious year to her life, here are five fashion-forward films that you can binge-watch to for some style inspiration
No fashion list could begin or complete without our very Bollywood version of Clueless. Speaking in terms of fashion, Sonam’s Aisha was way ahead of its time.
Produced by sister Rhea Kapoor, this film introduced big labels like Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Dior, and others to the Indian audience. Portraying the role of a Delhi based socialite-cupid, Sonam brought fashion to Bollywood and we are forever grateful for that.
Portraying a carefree and bubbly physiotherapist - ‘Milli Chakravarty,’ Sonam’s wardrobe surely reflected her character. Giving high-end couture and fairy tale gowns a miss, Kapoor opted for carefully orchestrated clash of prints, a riot of colours, spunky jackets, and mismatched socks.
Let’s be honest, we all wanted to dance on ‘Engine Ki Seeti’ in our jammies back in those days. And since it was a Disney production, this film makes our style queen a Disney princess as well!
VEERE DI WEDDING
Moving to another RheSon classic, this film revolves around the lives of four veeres and what happens when one of them decides to get married.
Portraying a single divorce lawyer, 'Avi Malhotra', Sonam brought a plethora of good looks ranging from classic and refined to chic and sexy!
With wardrobe designed by the finest designers Abu Jani- Sandeep Khosla, one can expect nothing but perfection on the sartorial front.
From her dreamy bridesmaid lehengas to their chic white vacay wear, Sonam is nowhere short on fashion inspiration in this film!
PREM RATAN DHAN PAAYO
With PRDP, we saw Sonam in a different light as 'Maithli'. Channeling her inner desi princess, Sonam pulled off some dreamy ethnic ensembles with finesse and ease.
Delicately detailed lehengas to soothing purple drape and a classy black gown, Sonam looked nothing less than a royal princess with her refined fashion game.
I HATE LUV STORYS
Essaying the role of an art director who is head over heels with the idea of 'luv stories', Sonam’s Simran hit all the right notes on casual dressing.
Featuring monotone t-shits, glamourous red gown, and the famous bikini saree, Sonam’s wardrobe in the film was feminine, effortless, simple yet sexy!
Happy Birthday, Sonam! We can’t wait for some more glorious additions to this fashion-forward list with your coming films in the years ahead…
