Trust a woman to steal the show at a fashion event for men! In ‘Signature’ style, Sonam Kapoor rocked the red carpet at the Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Menswear show in London on June 15, silencing any lingering post-Cannes critics with aplomb. Smouldering in a crop top and lace pencil skirt (by Burberry, of course), Sonam wore high heels, but chose to let her hair down at the label’s feted garden party — both literally and metaphorically!
While models strutted down the ramp in Christopher Bailey’s comely creations, musician Rhodes and an elaborate orchestra set the tone for a remarkable afternoon of fashion and fun. In the audience — alongside our very own style maven Sonam — were other megastars including Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson, acclaimed photographer Mario Testino, models Suki Waterhouse and David Gandy, track legend Lewis Hamilton and musician Tinie Tempah.
As the show drew to a close, the Keston Cobblers played on… but, for Sonam, the party continued. In London, our connoisseur of fine things always makes time to shop at Dover Street Market and pop around to her favourite eateries including Shoreditch House, Chiltern Firehouse (where chef Nuno Mendes serves up treat after treat) and an Italian restaurant in central London called Assunta Madre. For this globetrotting fashionista, the world is indeed her oyster!
