Sonam Kapoor: Blue blooded on the red carpet!

New Delhi, May 18 -- It's her fifth year at Cannes, and actor Sonam Kapoor is making sure everyone takes notice once again.

From monochrome and exaggerated silhouettes to bold florals - Bollywood's darling fashionista has done it all in the past, and this year too, the 29-year-old didn't disappoint.

The actor wore a blue gown with a draped bustle by British fashion house Ralph & Russo, with a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels, finishing off with Old Hollywood chocolate hair and a scarlet lip.

Her choice of colour created quite a buzz online, and designer Manish Malhotra, who also used blue as a primary colour on the ramp this year, says he loved the royal choice.

"I think Sonam looks fabulous and I especially love the fact that she has chosen the particular ink blue colour and let it take centrestage. Minimal accessories made her look modern, making for an understated style statement." Designer Ritu Beri adds, "I think Sonam looks ultra glamorous. The colour choice is particularly unique and she is doing full justice to the look."

Nachiket Barve, a designer Sonam has opted for in the past, also loved the actor's Cannes look. "Sonam completely lives her look. The festival by its sheer nature allows one to push fashion boundaries, and Sonam is able to do so each time. She chose a label which is not relatively in your face with a 'Veronica Lake meets couture at Cannes' vibe. Because of her absolute confidence she pulls off the colour and the volume, without looking overwhelmed." he says.
