Best & Worst Of Sonam Kapoor At Cannes Over The Years

Posted By:

Sonam Kapoor made her Cannes debut in 2011. She has come a long way since then. She has emerged as the fashionista of our country. Also, representing India at international fashion platforms. 

Love or hate Sonam's fashion but she has established herself as the glamour girl that every fashion lover look up to. And her Cannes appearance is that one thing that entire India awaits for.

We will only get to know what Sonam has in store for us once Cannes festival commences today. Until then we have a few of Sonam Cannes looks over the years. 

Remember Sonam's Rihanna moment? And that ugly duckling moment in Anamika Khanna? Well, we have covered all those here. But it's just not that, you'll also get to see Sonam splendid dresses.

She might have had her fashion faux pas a few times, but most of the times she surely steals hearts. So before you get to cherish Sonam's 2016 Cannes look, take a look here:


Best: 2011, In Jean Paul Gaultier

The year when Sonam made her Cannes debut. She opted for this splendid white gown by Jean Paul Gaultier. She definitely took the spectators by a blow. She further added another series of labels to this ensemble:

Earrings - Chopard

Ring- Amrapali

Shoes -Ferragamo


Worst: 2011, In ROW white gown

Sonam resembled the Mexican painter Frieda Kahlo. The dark makeup definitely did not work for her. But the white gown was sure something. She again wore Ferragamo shoes for this one.


Worst: 2011, In Roberto Cavalli

Sonam opted for this shimmery dress at a private dinner on The Cavalli Yacht during her first year at Cannes. I can't really say if the dark makeup works for her. She also wore these labels:

Shoes - Jimmy Choo

Clutch- Roger Vivier


Worst: 2012, In Masaba Gupta

Sonam wore a polka dot Masaba Gupta saree during her second year at Cannes. She wore this saree with a full sleeve blouse. Again dark makeup! Why, Sonam why?


Best: 2012, In Dolce & Gabbana

Sonam wore this classy red velvet Dolce & Gabbana dress. Her hair styled like Greek goddesses. Again the makeup has turned off the look but the dress is really something.


Best: 2012, In Alexander McQueen

Sonam looked enchanting in this sheer black gown. Her makeup is in tone with her dress. She looks like an Indian version of The Maleficient.


Best: 2013, In Elie Saab

Sonam looked like a princess flaunting an Elie Saab pink frock with pink sandals.


Worst: 2013, In Anamika Khanna

This outfit was critiqued by many. Sonam was criticised for wearing this. Possibly, her major fashion faux pas. The jacket with the saree did not sync in, nor did Sonam's hair.


Best: 2013, In Shehla Khan

It was a clever choice to opt for this black and grey lehenga. It looks more like a red carpet gown. Sonam looked good in this after her major Anamika Khanna saree mishap.


Best: 2013, In Dolce & Gabbana

Sonam wore this happy and summery dress at the red carpet and surely swooned our hearts.


Best: 2014, In Elie Saab

It looks like Sonam loves this designer. The third time she wore a piece from the same designer at Cannes. She opted center-parting hair which went really well with the gown.


Best: 2014, In Anamika Khanna

This piece by Anamika Khanna worked. A pale pink net saree gown paired with a heavy coker. Hair styled center-parted and smokey eye makeup. Everything worked incredibly well.


Worst: 2015, In Elie Saab

Another one of Sonam's major fashion mishaps at Cannes. This was one of her Rihanna moments.

So are you excited to know what's Sonam's next Cannes avatar is going to be? Stay tuned.
