In Aisha, her look bears a striking resemblance to Blair Waldorf’s in American TV series Gossip Girl
Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; July 09, 2010)
She may be setting fashion trends at other times but in her next film Aisha, Sonam Kapoor’s look seems heavily influenced by the character Blair Waldorf of the hit American series Gossip Girl.
Though papa Anil Kapoor got Devika Bhagat to give his daughter Sonam an ultra chic look in Aisha, it is believed that a lot of what Sonam’s wearing is of her own choice.
And we can’t but draw some glaring comparisons between Sonam’s outfits and hers. Blair Wardorf’s look is like that of a 21st century Audrey Hepburn; sprightly, charismatic, yet trendy.
Sonam’s is similar in Aisha. Both Sonam and Blair love feminine, peppy outfits that are well-accessorised with purses, shades and headbands.Lady Dior Cannage bag
Now the outfits in these two may not exactly match but the Lady Dior Cannage bag that Sonam is flaunting in the picture is the exact same one Blair has in her hand.
You can’t miss the stockings they have both worn, which bear a lot of resemblance.
Plus, (and pardon us for going a little out on a limb here) both Blair’s and Sonam’s outfits have only two colours: black and white.Christian Dior dress Sonam’s otherwise not-so-petite frame looks beautifully packaged in this Christian Dior dress, which incidentally happens to be the same one Blair sports in one of the episodes More >
Sonam Kapoor is looking her chicest in Aisha. We deconstruct her look in the forthcoming film
MUMBAI MIRROR; June 19, 2010
The film: Aisha. The look: “Young, stylish upper class Delhi girl who is not a fashion victim,” says Pernia Qureshi, the stylist. “Someone who just wakes up beautiful,” she says. And that someone is Sonam Kapoor who gets our vote as the most stylish girl in the business of acting.
Whether on screen or on the red carpet, Sonam always manages to make heads turn with her delicious mix of classic and young, hip and haute. “I know my body. I know what my problem areas are, I know what to hide, what to reveal,” says Sonam.
As a girl who takes her fashion seriously, Sonam likes to believe she has pretty defined personal style. “I like all things classic and chic, especially off screen where I like a dash of fun, a twist to anything I am wearing,” she says. “I love old clothes, which I can mix with high street or dress up something muted with interesting accessories.” And while she thinks “no one understands Indian women better than Manish Malhotra”, she also swears by her Chanels, and her Alexander Wangs.
“It is not just about wearing brands, it is about how you put the look together,” says Sonam.
With a little help of our style icon of the season, we deconstruct Sonam’s look in the film.
