Sonam Kapoor has a reputation as Bollywood’s foremost fashionista, and she didn’t disappoint Dubai’s stylish crowd when she appeared as a special guest at Nirav Modi’s jewellery collection preview on 31 October (2011).
Dressed in a shimmering black gown, accentuated with a stunning Nirav Modi statement necklace, Sonam was in her usual couture-forward form at One&Only The Palm.
While Mausam, her last Hindi movie release, might not have done so well at the box office, when it comes to fashion, there’s no rivaling this Bollywood star.
Ahlan! Live caught up with Sonam to find out more about her personal style, impulsive shopping and Hollywood heartthobs!
What is the go-to item in your closet right now?
There’s this black shirt from The Row that I love. It’s sheer chiffon, and what I wear to look slim and hot! It makes for the perfect outfit when teamed with black pants and booties.
Why did you decide to be involved with Nirav Modi’s jewellery?
I feel that wearing Nirav’s jewellery is like wearing a piece of art. His work is quite stunning. My sister Rhea (who often helps with Sonam’s styling) is always telling me to wear more of Nirav’s creations, and now I’m finally starting to.
What’s the one piece of jewellery you just can’t do without?
It would have to be my Bvlgari Serpent watch.
Do you ever regret making impulse purchases?
I buy stuff impulsively all the time and don’t remember half of it. So I don’t regret, I just forget!
If Confessions Of A Shopaholic were to be remade in Bollywood, who do you think should star in it?
[Laughs] Not me! I’m not obsessed! Maybe my sister Rhea could be in it - she can’t help herself!
What are the best and worst Hollywood films you’ve watched recently?
I really liked Drive, which I saw twice in the same weekend – I love Ryan Gosling! I also saw Bad Teacher, which I didn’t enjoy at all.
