Go bold or go home seems to actor Sonam Kapoor’s fashion mantra. Her latest envy-worthy OOTD (outfit of the day) – a black sheer dress – will surely make you the toast of any party. It is both sophisticated and youthful.

If there is one thing every woman should do at least once in her life, it’s wear an ultra feminine, magical dress that really shows off your true colours -- which in our case is black. And we just found that perfect gothic-ballerina look in the form of a dress Sonam Kapoor wore for her appearance on the Middle Eastern version of fashion-based show Project Runway.

On Monday, the actor wore a feminine and delicate Elie Saab dress that we really loved. Her sleek black frock with lace and floral detailing was both sophisticated and youthful. It served as a perfect reminder that a black dress is a timeless look waiting to be reinvented.

Sonam’s sheer black lace dress -- with a hem that hit a few inches below the knee -- was gorgeous and sexy from afar, but get up close and that’s where you see how special it is. The combination of feminine details -- lace, bow-tie, ruffles -- with the embellished silk-georgette and black colour make this one dreamy and completely sophisticated dress.


All Sonam needed to pull it together was a vibrant clutch bag and natural make-up. For an effortless-cool factor she wore her hair in a super cute half top-knot.

A little black dress (LBD) can always be counted on to deliver a best-dressed look with hardly any extra effort. But for the winter holidays, making a LBD stand out in a sea of sparkle can be tricky, so simply turn to Sonam’s latest look to shine like a star. Leave your hair down, wear basic make-up and let your dress do the talking. Just don’t forget to wear a big smile on your face -- it’s the only accessory you need!
