EXCLUSIVE: THIS is what designer Varun Bahl & stylist Mohit Rai have to say about Sonam Kapoor’s Cannes outfit

Cannes 2019 is on in full swing. Our favourite celebrities from Bollywood and Hollywood have graced the red carpet and served some fabulous looks that we are going to remember for ages. Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra Kangana Ranaut, Huma Qureshi, Hina Khan and Diana Penty are some of our home gron stars who have already won our hearts. All set to take the carpet by storm, is none other than Sonam K Ahuja! She has given us some splendid looks at the previous Cannes events so far and we can’t wait to see what she and stylist Rhea Kapoor have up their sleeve, this time.

Like us, designer Varun Bahl also believes that no matter what Sonam picks, it will be stunning! “Sonam’s style choices are fabulous when it come to red carpet appearances. I am sure even this year she is going to stun everyone with her sartorial choices and own the look. Honestly, if you ask me which designer she’s going to wear, I have no clue but I think it’d be nice to see her don another Ralph & Russo this year since she’s always a stunner in their creations!” says Bahl.

Agreeing with Bahl on the matter, is stylist Mohit Rai who is known for dressing up Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonakshi Sinha among others. “Sonam Kapoor is my absolute favourite at Cannes every year. She has proven time and again that there’s nobody who’s in her league. I think every year she nails it and knocks it out of the park, so I’m sure this year’s going to be no different & she’s just going to be raising the standards,” says Rai.

When asked what he thinks Sonam’s choices will be this time, Rai adds, “With Sonam it’s impossible to predict what she’s really going to wear, but I’m really hoping she does one of those magical Victor and Rolf’s that she’s worn, or a beautiful Ralph and Russo or even a Jean Paul Gaultier – she was one of the first people in the country to wear one so I would love to see a recall of that. It’s also lovely to see that she’s always taken Indian talent international when nobody else really has so I would love to see her do another Anamika Khanna on the red carpet since she hasn’t done that in a while. Even though she does only one Indian designer every year, I would love to see a fantastic couture outfit from Anamika. Whatever she wears, I’m sure it’s going to be through the roof and I can’t wait to see it!”

Sonam is all set to take the red carpet by storm at the Cannes 2019 International Film Festival today. Last year, she sported a beautiful lehenga that was custom made for her by Ralph and Russo who made their first ever lehenga for the Veere Di Wedding actress. The speculation is that this year too, Sonam will opt for Ralph and Russo and own the red carpet, as always!
