This folks, is what happens when you take the 'fashionista' tag way too seriously. Every outing is likened to a catwalk down the ramp.
Sonam turned up in a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. It was a smart choice. The outfit showed off her lithe, tall frame.
The coral Christian Louboutin pumps were a nice choice. They made her tux pop.
But what on earth is that on her forehead! Is it a horn? A cupcake? It's a swirl of luscious hair that Abhay deemed 'quirky' at the event.
That may be polite of Abhay, but we're not inclined to brush it off with a single adjective. Well, we couldn't swat it away even if we wanted to. It's right there! A giant blob of hair!
We've always loved Sonam's fashion choices. They are edgy and always outdo the brief. She's has gone wrong a few times and those have been forgettable. But this, we won't let her live it down.
There were other stars in attendance as well - Jiah Khan, Isha Koppikar, Pia Trivedi, Simone Singh and Nishka Lulla who all wore shades of blue. Apart from them, designer Neeta Lulla played it safe in black while Esha Gupta stuck out in a shocking orange gown and Poorna Jagannathan opted for earthy shades.
Come to think of it, we may not have noticed Sonam as much as we did in this milieu if it weren't for her 'avant garde' hairstyle. So, did she play it right even at the expense of possible ridicule? Is she truly a fashionista?
