Cannes 2016: Sonam Kapoor in Ralph & Russo Couture

Posted on May 16, 2016

Sonam Kapoor attends the premiere of “From the Land of the Moon” (“Mal de pierres”)” during the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.

 

Between the cape, the “cold shoulder” and the choker, this dress is a bigger pile o’ trends than it looks like at first glance.

Then again, at first glance it’s so overwhelming it almost doesn’t matter what the individual elements are. The whole point to a gown like this is the sheer number of elements. Whether they look good together is a secondary concern at best. It’s more important that they each work to increase the drama factor of the gown.

We’ll give her a ton of credit for working this so dramatically and not getting overwhelmed by it, but we don’t like the shoulder detail or the choker. And we feel like a dress should get either a floor-length cape or a floor-length skirt cape, but never both at the same time.
