Sonam Kapoor Ahuja appears to do no wrong these days. She brightens our day, impeccably dressed, in a sunshine yellow flowing anarkali with kota jamdani work by designer Gaurang Shah. It’s a beautiful, golden sunflower colour which she perfectly accessorised with statement earrings and juttis. She keeps her hair tied back in a bun with braided extensions that start at the crown and go all the way back.

We have deconstructed the look for you, so you too can take inspiration and wear the colour that is having a moment.

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja appears to do no wrong these days. She brightens our day, impeccably dressed, in a sunshine yellow flowing anarkali with kota jamdani work by designer Gaurang Shah.

Get the look

We love the understated elegance Mrs Ahuja is oozing and her makeup, although simple, complements the richness of the colour and the outfit itself perfectly.

Get the look:

Skin: Start with the usual C-T-M routine and apply a light weight foundation like the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation.

Eyes: Use the warm ochre-golden colours of Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – French Rose, and sweep it all over your lids, making sure you do not go beyond the crease. Use the Lakmé Eyeconic Pen which has a block tip to line your upper lash line with a thick line. Add two or three coats of Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.

Cheeks: Keep it light like Sonam has with a sweep of highlighter like Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter.

Lips: Use a light pink lipstick like Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color Caramel Custard, which is a lovely colour that complements Indian skin tones beautifully.

Hair

Hair: Get Sonam’s interesting take on the traditional bun with a centre partition and braid each of the two sections in French plaits and take it around to the back. Fasten both the side plaits at the back and twist them around into a bun and secure it with ‘U’ pins.

Outfit

Outfit: Mustard is the ‘it’ colour of the season and you could pick yourself an outfit similar to the one Sonam is wearing at Maahaeroo.

Footwear

Footwear: Golden embellished juttis such as these from Jutti Express can be worn just as well with casual jeans and a white tee as with traditional outfits.

Statement earrings

Statement earrings: When earrings like these make such a statement, we can’t help but pay attention. Get similar earrings at Tvameva.
