Ever since Sonam Kapoor has been a part of the industry, she’s been hailed as THE Fashion Queen of the industry! So while her love for fashion is quite obvious, the reason behind that love is not!
On the sets of COLORS Infinity’s Vogue BFFs, Sonam said, “My love for fashion happened because of movies. It’s because of Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Hepburn! The reason I love Givenchy so much is because of Funny Face! You know, the incredible clothes that he did and the costumes that he gave her in the movie! Or if I look at Catherine Hepburn, she’s the first one to wear trousers and a swimsuit, Breakfast At Tiffany’s! You know, these are the movies that actually encouraged me to look at vintage and old stuff!”
Almost as if to reinstate her image as the fashion queen, when Kamal asked Sonam how many times she changed her clothes on days when she’s not shooting, she said, “I guess, four times!” And guess what, if she had to raid a celebrity closet – she said that it would be Victoria Beckham for her bags and Elizabeth Taylor for her jewels! Further, when Kamal asked her how many bags she carried to Cannes, Sonam said, “Nine!” WOW. That’s an astounding number!
