The 29-year-old actress, known for her bold choices at red carpet outings, was at the receiving end of Twitterati for her latest look, where she matched her couture gown with a neat bun, pink lips and teardrop earrings.
“Sonam Kapoor’s Elie Saab at Cannes is what you’d get if Rihanna’s omelet dress broke into scrambled eggs,” a user tweeted, referring to Rihanna’s massive MET gala dress.
Comparing it to “cornflakes,” another user wrote, “Sonam Kapoor’s golden gown looks like she’s covered in cornflakes/bread crumbs.”
“Sonam Kapoor’s dress at Cannes is reminding me of a stack of hay!” another tweet read.
Some users even compared the furry gown to pictures of furry dogs.
“Erm... @sonamakapoor. Sorry to say her latest dress looks a lot like a children’s character I remember (Big Bird). #SesameStreet #justsaying #Cannes,” one user wrote.
“Sonam Kapoor has nothing much to do at Cannes; she should at least knit some sweaters from her dress.”
The actress, who is at the festival as the face of a cosmetic brand for the fifth time, has generally earned praise for her outfits, which have included a nude pink dress, structured cobalt blue gown, nude cocktail saree and black ornate dress.
