The Cannes Film festival has become a synonym of fashion where all reigning beauties put their best foot forward to define their style in their own unique way. And when it comes to Cannes, the two divas that have always been talked about are – Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai bachchan. Where Aish had her share of criticism and applause from fashion critics across the globe, Sonam Kapoor had always managed to get thumbs up from the people watching her. This year too, these sensational ladies left the audiences in awe with their appearances on the red carpet.
Sonam Kapoor who is known as the fashion icon of India was sure to make a big entry and she did not let us down. She wore a sizzling ruffle sari by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla paired with Suhan Pittie’s jewellery and bulgari watch for a press call. For her first red carpet appearance she chose a stunnning electric blue Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture layered gown along with chopard earrings and a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. Her hair looked flawless and the makeup was perfection. She picked a sorbet-colour feathered Elie Saab couture at the premiere of ‘Inside Out’ which honestly was a total disaster ( Now who expects Sonam to do such a blunder at The Cannes *unknw* ) And pink colored drop earings .. Seriously? Anyway, Ignoring this particular outfit.. later in the day she was seen wearing a beautiful gold-black brocade bodice designed by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla again which looked utterly classy and sexy. A sleek low hair bun and bronzed makeup made Sonam look like a Goddess
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan completed 14 years representing L’Oreal Paris at the Cannes Film Festival. She didn’t seem to be experimenting a lot with her look this year and stuck to gowns for most of her appearances. She chose an unflattering teal Elie Saab gown for her first appearance but BoYyy her makeup ( teal liner at the lower lashes with dark lips ) just stole my heart away . Next she wore a mesmerizing maroon strapless Oscar de la Renta gown at the launch of her comeback movie ‘Jazbaa’ and she rocked it completely. She dazzled the red carpet on her second appearance in a white strapless Ralph & Russo couture gown teamed with minimal jewelery. That soft wavy side swept hair do, cut crease eye makeup along with n*de lipstick looked perfect altogether. She looked like a glam doll at amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Elie Saab’s enthralling lavender floral gown.
Where Sonam went bold with her look ( I would say ultra bold with her feathery Elie Saab gown *blum* ) at The Cannes this time, Aishwarya did not take any chances. I wish Aish had played a little with her hair too as her hair style looked quite boring and monotonous however there is no doubt that she looked near perfect in the white strapless Ralph & Russo gown. Sonam on the other hand opted for fresh fierce looks which were an interesting watch ( ofcourse except that one outfit .. you know what I am talking about )
What do you think about Sonam and Aishwarya’s choices of outfits at The Cannes this year ? Who do you think won the battle of fashion ? Do not forget to leave your comments
