Cannes Red Carpet: Sonam Kapoor Turned Heads With Her ‘Mehendi’

Sonam Kapoor’s final red carpet look at Cannes saw her in a beige Vera Wang gown, perfect for a summer ball. She complemented it with dramatic make-up. For another day look, she sported a striped Emilia Wickstead number, coupled with Sophia Webster shoes and Bottega Veneta shades.

Her most striking accessory was her bridal mehendi. The design may be fading but it was noticed by the most definitive international fashion magazine - Vogue amongst others. The B-Town fashionista was fielding congratulatory wishes, even at Cannes.

Her husband, Anand Ahuja seems to be swelling with pride. He posted a picture of the glowing description from the magazine on social media.

Anand Ahuja posted a picture of the digital version of Vogue commenting on Sonam’s ‘henna’.

“Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor stepped out with a distinctive below-the-neck beauty signature that made head turns on the red carpet. At a Solo: A Star Wars Story screening, she wore delicate Henna designs etched across her hands...The traditional Indian form of body art, which the actress also wore at her fairytale wedding to businessman Anand Ahuja just one week prior, was accompanied by a nude manicure and a new wedding ring.”
