Sonam Kapoor (just about two films old) recently achieved high honors amid the fashionable elite by becoming the first Indian celebrity to ever wear an exclusive gown designed for her by the famous Parisian fashion house Chanel, at the recent 54th Filmfare awards.
Sonam says, “That’s right. My off-shoulder gown came from their special-celebrity collection. I just kept staring at the beautiful basic but simple white gown that they sent me. Yes, I think I’m the first Indian celebrity to be dressed by Chanel in Bollywood. I’m so excited. I felt like Cinderella before the ball. Never before have I been so excited about dressing up for an event.”
Apparently Sonam’s impressive photoshoots for Verve and Elle caught Chanel’s attention, she adds- elated, “They just flew over three Chanel gowns for me to choose from. I liked the white one. I prefer light shades and I avoid accessories.They take away from the basic look of your clothes. And what Chanel sent me for the Filmfare Awards certainly needed no enhancement. It was divine per se.”
(Meanwhile I wonder who’s turning an unflattering shade of green in Bollywood!)
