After Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan, actress Sonam Kapoor is set to be hosted by Salvatore Ferragamo as their special guest at Palazzo Spini Feroni, the historic Florentine headquarter of the leading luxury brand.
She will visit the label's headquarter Feb 22 as part of the "Shoes for a Star" project, and get a special, customised pair of Ferragamo shoes of her choice.
The daughter of "Slumdog Millionaire" actor Anil Kapoor, will also get to sit in the front row at the autumn-winter 2012 fashion show in Milan Feb 26.
The VIP treatment given to the actress will match the treatment once meted to yesteryear Hollywood stars like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn.
A guest at the centrally-located Gallery Art Hotel, which is owned by the Ferragamo Group, Sonam has been invited to Palazzo Spini Feroni for a welcome lunch with the Ferragamo family and for a tour of the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo.
During her visit, she will meet with expert shoemakers who will measure her feet for wooden lasts, an essential part of the Ferragamo shoemaking process. She will also meet with the shoe designers, who will create a customised shoe in line with her tastes and requests.
Sonam's sense of style is chic and urban -- a fact well-cemented with her look in the film "Aisha", in which she carried the brand's iconic bag Sofia with much elan.
In the next few days, Sonam will be styled in spring-summer 2012 collection for an exclusive photo shoot at Ferragamo's XV century property Villa Il Borro, with the Harper's Bazaar India.
