Sonam Kapoor, before being praised for acting is praised for the fashion statements she makes with her every appearance at award functions, interviews or anywhere. She is known to grab eyeballs with her unique style choices. So much so, that she is tagged as a “fashionista” among the leading ladies of Bollywood. And her confidence is a cherry on the cake. On one side, where there is a large group of people who adore her fashion choices, the other side also has a set of online trolls who don’t think twice before trolling her on social media.
Something similar happened when she walked in at the Hello Hall of Fame Awards sporting a mauve and a neon green coloured outfit by Celia Kritharioti. It left the netizens anything but impressed. She had her hair pushed back, neatly tied in a bun, had her statement jewellery on, and showed off her plunging neckline like a boss, but still, it did not impress many.
Sonam, on her Insta account, shared a picture with her cousin Janhvi Kapoor and captioned it:
With my date last night.. thank you @hellomagindia for our awards @janhvikapoor got for “best debut of the year” and I was given “trailblazer performer of the year” it’s so heartening to be rewarded for the things you believe in. 📸 @prathameshb84
Janhvi Kapoor was awarded the Hall of Fame Cinematic Debut of the Year award for her amazing performance in Dhadak and none other than Sonam presented it to her. This was definitely a special moment for both of them as Janhvi looks up to Sonam and the latter admires her young sister.
Though some believed that Sonam rocked her chic outfit, here’s what some of them trolled Sonam’s choice of dress at the recently held award function,
@almafv4 “I think sonam tried to copy alia bhatt’s recent colour combination… but it turned into disaster for sonam.” [sic]
@tripti.chauhan91 “Like seriously? What has happened to her? I used to admire her” [sic]
@ishagautamraval “She has gone mad on the name of fashion…my eyes are burning.” [sic]
@florence_delhi “Beautiful Sonam with very very very inappropriate and ugly dress…” [sic]
@empyreancharmer “@rheakapoor your sister looks horrible. If you think your sister has a great sense of style, then you should come out of your dream and face the reality. This dress looks horrendously awful.” [sic]
@findmeifucan “@rheakapoor really.. she isn’t looking good at all. Gown doesnt suit her body type.” [sic]
@mahishaikh406 “big disaster👎👎👎👎 Rip for designer and her stylist.” [sic]
Well, all of this is not new to her as every now and then she experiences such kind of online hatred and over the years, she’s learned to walk past them.
Apart from these two gorgeous ladies, the Red Carpet of the award function was graced by many Bollywood celebs. Veteran Bollywood actress Sharmila Tagore, Farhan Akhtar, Vicky Kaushal, Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh, Ayushmann Khurrana, among many walked in with their A-Fashion game. The awards were held on Sunday, March 17, 2019.
