Sonam Kapoor turns bride for Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla at IBFW
The BMW India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) held yesterday saw the gorgeous ‘Khubsoorat’ actress Sonam Kapoor, in a bridal look which was designed by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla.
Sonam’s confident walk, though she sported heavily embellished garments, was praised by everyone. Before it was revealed that Sonam Kapoor would be the showstopper, the designer duo shared that “the ensemble will be the showstopper. And the woman wearing it like a goddess who deserves no less than the cream of the collection”.
The ‘Harper Bazaar India’ posted on Twitter a collage of their first cover girl Sonam Kapoor and captioned it, “Our first ever #CoverGirl @sonamakapoor opens the show for @AJSKOfficial at @bmw @indiabridalfashionweek”
Sonam Kapoor looked elegant in a vermilion bridal lehenga with a zardozi and Swarovski blouse and a dupatta on head.
“I feel like a bride. I loved every moment of it”, Sonam, who is “happy to be single “, told reporters after the “spectacular and dramatic” show.
Of how does she rate the modernisation of bridal wear in terms of its silhouettes and fabrics, Sonam said, “Yes it’s a good change. Since we have so many weddings outside India, the bridal wardrobe is also changing according to the climate condition. People also want to do something different for their wedding.”
Sonam Kapoor also underlined the importance of jewellery as an investment tool and not just a fashion accessory.
Known as one of the best-dressed women in Bollywood, Sonam will next be seen opposite Salman Khan in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ and the biopic on Neerja Bhanot. “I will not speak anything about my films right now,” she said.
