Actress Rhea Kapoor is quite excited about the upcoming film projects that she is developing and will announce soon.
Rhea has not only styled her sister Sonam Kapoor on several occasions, but also worked with her as a producer in films “Aisha”, “Khoobsurat” and “Veere Di Wedding”.’
She ensured that Sonam was seen in a different look each time.
Rhea said: “As a stylist, we all are dreamers. We like to tell stories, read books, look at pictures and at times feel so connected with characters from our favourite stories… Being an introvert as a child, I always spent time on reading books.”
She said further: “It is the same with Sonam. So when I style anyone, any character in a film, or a person in real life, I take inspiration from books and iconic personalities.”
She added: “As woman, we all have different shades in our personality. When I am styling someone, I try to bring out or highlight one of the shades. I’m always inspired by women like Gayatri Devi and Audrey Hepburn… The list is long.”
Rhea says she is gearing up for the Cannes red carpet, and the line has a lot of designs inspired by Paris. There is a perception that mostly jewellery that is used on a big occasion like a red carpet or a wedding cannot be worn for a regular event. But Rhea says any statement piece can be mixed and matched with a simple and elegant outfit.
Rhea feels the best suited outfit for such occasions is a sari.
“A sari is our regular wear just like a gown in the western world. So why not make it cool? I think nothing goes better with a sari than western looking jewellery. A sari could be very simple and I can accessorize it with a statement piece. It will look fab,” she said.
