Sonam Kapoor Ahuja channels 50s glamor in a red Dior dress} VOGUE France
Sonam Kapoor wore black leather gloves up to the elbows with her red shirt dress
Before the mini-skirts and go-go boots of the sixties, post-war style in Europe began to take shape in the 1950s, with the belted shirt dress – as seen on Kapoor Ahuja here – being the flagship piece that defined this decade. What made it popular at the time still retains its charm: the cinched waist and almost triangular flared skirt create a flattering but still modest silhouette for the wearer. Kapoor Ahuja’s sleek bun-inspired updo is a further homage to the times this dress refers to, and Dior‘s Maria Grazia Chiuri deserves the credit for rekindling a classic Dior silhouette. Kapoor Ahuja’s black stockings, sensitive heels and thin black belt completed the look, which we think is an interesting take on business-oriented second-hand outfits. If you’ve got office parties on the horizon, this is an outfit to bookmark.
