Fashionista Sonam Kapoor stuns and shines at the indian film festival of melbourne
Bollywood actress and fashionista Sonam Kapoor is currently in Melbourne, Australia and attending the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne with her father, superstar Anil Kapoor.
She's been in Australia for the Indian Film Festival Melbourne (IFFM). But on Sunday Bollywood beauty Sonam Kapoor took a break from the red carpet to watch an Australian Football League (AFL) game. Arriving at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in style, the 30-year-old daughter of Anil Kapoor still brought her A-list glamour to the sporting event, dressing to impress in a blue Oscar de la Renta outfit.
The Khoobsurat star slipped on a blue coat, the chic number accessorised with a sleek black waist belt. Featuring oversized detailing with large buttons and black pockets, the actress's stylish long jacket was layered over a white coloured blouse with a frilly neckline. Her trim pins were clad in a pair of sheer black stockings, while she slipped her feet into a pair of stunning Sophia Webster heels. Her black pointy-toed shoes were embellished with delicate wing-like detail behind the heels.
The award-winning actress wore a Roksanda dress, the flowing number splashed with purple, orange, black and white panels throughout. She completed her look with a pair of Sophia Webster silver heels, but kept the rest of her accessories to a minimum, so as not to retract attention from her statement dress. Sonam's famous father Anil Kapoor was also at the venue, gracing the stage later in the evening for a Q&A session about his film Dil Dhadakne Do. The Indian Film Festival of Melbourne is a Victorian Government initiative, which according to the festival's website 'aims to strengthen ties between the Indian film industry and Victoria'.
As a proud face of the festival from India, Slumdog Millionaire star Anil appeared on Australia's Weekend Sunrise program on Saturday morning to speak about the event. 'The Melbourne film festival is getting more and more popular. This is the fourth year which the Melbourne government is supporting this festival,' he told the Channel Seven show. When asked why the Indian film industry was being shown this support Down Under as opposed to other countries' showbusiness movements, Anil said: 'I think we Indians are much more warm, hospitable, emotional and open and of course democratic'. 'For us Indian films are a celebration of life and it's all about song, music and dance.' The Indian Film Festival Melbourne continues over the next two weeks, running from August 14 to August 27.
