Meet the beautiful cape-crusaders of Bollywood
The cape coat, jacket or sleeve is a style that is trending internationally. We have seen beauties like Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sonam Kapoor and singer Kanika Kapoor sporting the cape on different occasions with varied results.
Here's a lowdown on some of the recent sightings of the cape.
Huma Qureshi: The 'Badlapur' actress donned a black gown with a sheer cape that had floral applique work done on it at a recent awards ceremony. Statement ear cuffs were her accessory of choice.
Ileana D'Cruz: While this cape looks straight out of a fantasy film, one can't deny the element of drama it added to Ileana D'Cruz's outfit at an awards show. The lady kept her accessories to a minimum sporting only a big metallic belt. Ileana's restraint did not make her ensemble over-the-top or tacky.
Priyanka Chopra: Known for her edgy fashion sense, Priyanka Chopra sported this royal blue cape with denims and wedge boots. The cape had a skull print on the back. With this outfit, PeeCee flaunted the rock chic look.
Nimrat Kaur: The Lunchbox actress opted for this pink gown created by designer Georges Hobeika for an awards function in Britain. The gown had a plunging neckline and cape sleeves with sequins on it.
Sonakshi Sinha: The actress flaunted a dressy summer look with this printed draped dress, which was paired with a matching cape with detailing near the neck. The statement ear cuffs added to her charm.
