Sonam Kapoor at Cannes 2015 Red Carpet

 

Sonam Kapoor celebrated her 5 year anniversary walking the Cannes Red Carpet this year and expectations were high! We’ve seen 2 appearances by her at the Red Carpet so far – the first one in a cobalt blue Ralph & Russo gown and the second, in a yellow feathered Elie Saab number. I’ve liked some of her looks in the past (loved the Anamika Khanna fusion sari last year) but this year, I’m on the fence.

 

For her first look at the ‘Sea of Trees’ premiere, she wore this gorgeous blue Ralph & Russo gown. When I first saw the look on Instagram (with a picture taken indoors), the color looked beautifully rich but on the red carpet, it didn’t photograph as well and looked a bit tacky. In fact almost all aspects of the look had issues – the hair color looked fake and unnatural, the makeup had serious problems and the busy hair interfered with the beautiful neckline. I wish she had gone for an up do and a more natural look for the makeup. The orangey red lip clashed with the color of the gown (not in a good way), the eyes looked tired and in serious need of some concealer and the overdose of bronzer/contour gave her complexion a muddy look.

Katrina Kaif at Cannes 2015 (Red Carpet)

 

Katrina Kaif made her debut at Cannes this year as one of the Loreal Paris India Ambassadors. She walked the Red Carpet twice – once in a strapless black and nude Oscar de la Renta gown and the second time, in a red Elie Saab gown. As far as the choice of gowns go, I loved the Oscar de la Renta on her but the red Elie Saab one didn’t look as striking on the Red Carpet. The fit was lovely on her toned frame though!

Coming to her hair and makeup, I think the one thing no one can stop talking about is the red hair! I personally don’t like it so much and I know its for a movie but she could have easily gone back to brunette for Cannes and got it redone once she got back to shooting. It looked particularly jarring in the second look where there was a clear over load of red – red dress, red lip, red hair on a red carpet (!!!).

FOTD : Gold Eyes + Bright Coral Lips

 

Hey everyone!

Today I created this warm toned look using some new products I’m testing at the moment! I used the neutral palette that started the obsession with neutral palettes – Urban Decay Naked palette for the eyes to create a soft smoky gold eye. I paired it with bronzed, highlighted skin and a bright coral lip using the new Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Creme in shade Blush! I think the warm palette of colors makes this a very summery look!

What do you think of this look? You can see the full list of products used below.
