Sonam Kapoor wore an actual wedding dress on the Cannes red carpet

Well, it has only been a week since her real-life wedding

Bollywood megastar and all-round fashionista Sonam Kapoor married businessman Anand Ahuja last week in Mumbai (see 26 photos from the reception here). And this week, she's on the French Riviera sealing her status as a style icon on the Cannes red carpet: on Monday night, she had Ralph & Russo craft an Indian design for her, and last night, she wore a bridal gown.

Yes, an actual wedding dress: the 32-year-old actress wore a nude and yellow Vera Wang bridal gown (from the 2019 collection) on the Cannes red carpet. She opted for Ralph & Russo shoes, and Chopard jewels.

Her wedding mehendi was still visible, too:

We spoke to Kapoor about all things style last month, and she told us that the UAE is one of her favourite shopping destinations: "It used to be Paris, but now it’s a tie between London and Dubai. I like Boutique 1 a lot, it’s got very nice things, and I like The Dubai Mall because it has everything."
