Style diva and actor Sonam Kapoor prepares to walk the red carpet at Cannes later this month
“At the end of the day, I am a film star,” declared Sonam Kapoor. Her declaration came as an endorsement of her favourite look created by L’Oreal Paris for its new L’Or Lumiere collection. The collection was launched by Sonam Kapoor in Mumbai just in time for Cannes Film Festival 2014 this month, where she and the brand’s two other Indian ambassadors — Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Freida Pinto — will walk the red carpet.
“The collection focuses on the Indian skin and we should accentuate it,” said Sonam, looking every bit the style diva in a sequined silver flair dress.
Being a star has its own advantages. Like Sonam puts it, the time spent in Cannes will be like a “three-day holiday” that involves representing one’s country and looking beautiful. “When you meet other international actors and models you realise that you are living in a bubble. The world is lot bigger than you think,” she said.
Every year the Raanjhanaa actor makes it a point to take with her to Cannes a bit of Indianness, be it a sari that she wore last year, or jewellery the year before. What’s in the bag this year? “I don’t know. Everyone thinks I plan my look in advance but I don’t. But there will be something Indian this time too.”
