Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s penchant for exaggerated sleeves is fairly well-known—the actor has time and again opted for the statement-making silhouette through gowns, dresses, tops and even sari blouses, proving its versatility. This time round, Kapoor Ahuja channelled the dramatic look during an outing in Switzerland, possibly while attending Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s pre-wedding celebrations in St Moritz earlier this year. For the formal occasion, the star picked a black and white gown by Parisian designer Stephane Rolland which came embroidered with black crystals and featured a black crêpe corset, which came with sheer panels on its sides to create an interesting new shape.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja shows you how to style a dramatic gown
When wearing a gown that brings together several eye-catching elements—in Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s case, exaggerated sleeves, crystal work and that not-so-basic bodice—it’s a good idea to keep your accessories minimal. The Neerja star completed her festive look with elegant diamond earrings and a studded hairband that kept her locks back and drew attention to her sharp features. Kapoor Ahuja chose aded a pop of colour to her look via a bright red lip and completed her beauty look with rose-tinted cheeks, defined brows and shimmer eyeshadow.
