Last year, Sonam made her Cannes debut as a global representative and the face of L’Oreal. She had only one red carpet appearance and she wore an elegant Jean Paul Gaultier archival gown from the 2009 collection. Who can forget THAT! Right?
Now that L’Oreal has confirmed Sonam’s presence (as their brand ambassador) at the 65th Festival de Cannes, we thought it’s time to update the possibilities of what we might see the pretty fashionista wearing during her red carpet appearances. And not only red carpet gowns, we’re talking day wear dresses, indian outfits and cocktail numbers as well. One thing that’s for sure is that she won’t be able to wear the same outfit twice. Sonam will need a casual, smart outfit for the day, a couple of flirty cocktail dresses or flowy gowns for get togethers or evening parties and obviously full-length gowns for the red carpet.
So what might Sonam wear at Cannes this year? We pick some red carpet clothing choices for Sonam.
Don’t expect her to be dressed in overly vintage dresses, sparkly gowns or backless outfits. This is no time for showing off, she can save that for the red carpet. She needs to dress in a way that is warm, easy going, and maybe even slightly un-glamorous or conservative. At this time of the day, she will most probably be busy giving media interviews and we suggest she wear something that is safely old-fashioned yet festively fun.
- We suggest Sonam chooses outfits that are less dramatic, it can be colorful knits or printed summery day dresses, tweedy suits and high-waisted trousers. Something easy, fun and effortless.
FORMAL DINNERS/COCKTAIL PARTIES
Cocktail parties and dinners may vary in the level of formality and therefore there is no single kind of attire that will cover the genre. Being evening, We would like Sonam to look like a goddess wearing plain, long and flowy chiffon gowns or wrap dresses, fine knits, flowy or flared skirts, silk, satin, sheer tops, dressy pants. Basically something that looks cute, doesn’t look too dressy and looks glamorous all at the same time.

Now Sonam attended just one red carpet premiere at the festival last year. We would however like her to attend more premieres this year around, as THIS is where all the magic happens. There are so many great gowns this season, the possibilities are endless. She can do sequin and shiny, prim and pretty, vampy and sexy, vibrant and ethereal or even minimal, depending on her mood. Whatever the theme may be, this is where she can work her glamour quotient, this is where she gets to experiment and show off all she wants. We don’t want to see rockstar princess, since we have already seen a bit of that last year.
Other good designers for the red carpet would be Givenchy, Zac Posen, Tom Ford, Sherri Hill and Dolce and Gabbana. Please comment on this post, and let us know if you would like to read a post on what indian wear we think she should be wearing at the French Riveria festival.
