Birthday Special: Throwback on Sonam Kapoor’s Top Looks!

Happy B’day, Sonam Kapoor! The impeccable fashionista, who has been casted in movies like ‘Aisha’, Raanjhanaa’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, turns 29 today. On this day, the style heavyweights at Jabong, tell you exactly why we dig Ms. Kapoor’s style statement.

"Jabong Shopping Online"

After losing oodles of weight, this stunner has given us multiple occasions to ogle at her ethereal features and fabulous body, flaunting a versatile creation, each time. From ramp walks, umpteen red carpet appearances at the Cannes Film Festival, to gracing countless magazine covers, she has done it all!

In an interview, Sonam confesses that her key style tip is to work a daring trend in a classic, feminine silhouette. She weaved the magic with her versatile style statement, in a casual Mirage printed skirt and crop top by Parul Bharghava. She scores a 10 on 10 for finishing off this chic look, with D & G bag and strappy sandals. In this black, Elie Saab creation at an awards function, Sonam looks every inch, the part of a sultry diva. The regal up-do, smoky eyes and ear cuffs looked bewitching on this enigmatic beauty. Subtle-yet-eye-catching, she charmed one and all, at the Barbara Casasola Fall 2013, in a two tone lavender, and deep purple crepe de chine pleated dress. That infectious smile and sparkle in her eyes… we are a fan for life! Speaking of fans, we are just growing a little envious, seeing her well-toned abs in the Anamika Khanna ensemble, before a shoot for L’Oreal Paris. We may not be blessed with her fashion-forward wardrobe, but we sure can splurge on the collection of cropped Jabong tops for women! The highlight of the actress’s glamorous moments has to be the Cannes Film Festival. Sonam demonstrates, just why, there is no competition when it comes to topping the style charts. We just love how flawlessly; she carries off the asymmetric detailing of the Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown, at Cannes 2011."Shopping Online at Jabong"It was an Abu-Sandeep mirror work saree appearance that did wonders to her sharp Indian features. The hairdo, high-neck blouse, and cylindrical silver clutch only proved the iconic cult status of this fashionable lady. Whoa! Once you have taken your eyes off that curvaceous frame, go on, and ogle at the heavily embellished creation by Manish Malhotra. We must admit, no one could carry off those fishtails, with the red ghaghra-choli, as well as this graceful diva does! The radiant beauty went all desi in a white floor-length Rohit Bal anarkali at the success party of ‘Raanjhana’. The kundan earrings and neat tied-back hair, added brownie points to her ultra-glam look. Who says the ‘Masakali’ beauty cannot carry off Indian attire? She looked her scintillating best in a Masaba multi-coloured saree at the 2nd edition of L’Oreal Paris Femina Women Awards 2013. Emulate a similar look with the wide range of multi-coloured sarees in our collection of Jabong Sarees!

Get the Gunday Look!

We are a month down in 2014 and the Bollywood box office is already rejoicing. One of the eagerly awaited movies of the year is finally releasing this Valentine’s Day! It’s time to rock with ‘Gunday!’ This movie is set in the turbulent period of 1971 to 1988 in the history of the-then Calcutta. Bala and Bikram as played by Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh respectively rise from the shambles to become powerful coal mafia dons. "Priyanka chopra in Gunday Movie"The sexy siren Priyanka Chopra looks sensational as a shy and demure Bengali girl named Nandita.

Sensuous sarees, sleeveless blouses and long tresses brought retro back and how! Get her look with Jabong Sarees! In some surprising stills, we saw Piggy Chops essaying the role of a cabaret dancer with perfect elan. Look at her jazzy corset with a golden shimmer and a bob hairdo! She never ceases to surprise us!

"gunday Movie"Leaving PC aside, let’s focus on the actual ‘Gundays’! The boys sported retro looks in the movie. Westerns ruled the roost in that period. The more formal you are, the better it was. The boys kicked off their fun-loving avatar with plain coloured tees paired with checked shirts and coloured trousers. In the colourful city of Kolkata, the 80’s was a period of transition where flared pants and loud shirts was the ‘in’ thing. Arjun and Ranveer didn’t have a typical Bengali look and weren’t too loud in their get-up which is quite appealing to the masses! Time for you to go shopping and be your own king with Jabong Online Shopping!
