Sonam Kapoor covers Vogue India… again!

November 5, 2011

There’s only so much you can ask or write about a fashionista’s take on fashion. But then the rules are different for Vogue.

Actor Sonam Kapoor is Vogue India’s November 2011 cover girl yet again, this time in a Louis Vuitton blouse and skirt with diamond-onyx earrings. Sonam was last seen on the Vogue India cover in January 2010, wearing Roberto Cavalli.

I was mighty disappointed to know of yet another Sonam Kapoor piece in Vogue India, especially since she’s been there, done that. Besides, Sonam’s a regular in most fashion magazines—as a style icon, trendsetter or “how to wear” kind of pages. Are we on the brink of a Sonam-as-fashionista overload!

Thankfully, the Vogue people got “fashion-challenged” journalist Anil Thakraney to interview Sonam, perhaps to get a different perspective on her sartorial sensibilities. This isn’t an interview asking for fashion or style tips, so don’t rush to the page expecting any.

What I did read, though, were some wonderful nuggets of “wisdom” (and some gossip). Sample this:

Indian men don’t understand fashion unless they are gay.”

Umm… I think that’s kinda true.

Currently, the actor wants to save up for a solitaire diamond (don’t we all?) and wants a Valentino gown designed by Valentino himself (wow, she dreams big!). Luckily for Sonam, a lot of the clothes are free.

Some fashion lessons we picked up from the story:

  • Sonam Kapoor is well aware of her body type and flaws (she says she has big feet)
  • She’s got loads of the right attitude which permits her to be a fashion rebel of sorts.
  • One fashion tip she does offer directly: “Never bare it all. You have to retain the mystery of being a woman. That’s why Katrina Kaif is who she is—a mystery. Men like mystery.”

That’s enough to keep fashion lovers busy for a while, but hey, Vogue India—can we see less of Sonam Kapoor henceforth? Would be good to see some more unusual fashion icons that aren’t done to death. Thanks!

Stay chic.
