The Bollywood star turned to this Dubai-based label to make a sartorial statement.

With the weather in the UAE averaging a chilly 20-or-so degrees Celsius (hey, that’s cold for us), we’ve been spending our days Googling “chic layering ideas”.

The tepid weather paired with office air-con means we’re living in winter knits nowadays, but our seasons-old sweaters have left us feeling underwhelmed, wardrobe-wise.

But when we clocked this picture of Sonam Kapoor, we started writing a shopping list.

The Bollywood actress stepped out at  IWC Schaffhausen’s Jubilee Collection launch in Geneva wearing a muted pink three-piece get-up that we instantly had to research.

With artful tailoring, clean lines, and exaggerated details, any one of these pieces would see us through the working week in style.

The best news? The Neerja star looked to this region for her ensemble.

The power suit and duster coat are from Bouguessa, a Dubai-based luxury label known for its contemporary minimalism.

Styled by her sister Rhea, Kapoor also donned burgundy Stuart Weitzman boots and a IWC Schaffhausen timepiece.

The star was also joined at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie bash by Tunisian actress Hend Sabri, who sported an elegant Elie Saab number.

The Lebanese label excels when it comes to romantic fabrics and ultra-feminine silhouettes, and this plum knot-tied gown certainly didn’t disappoint.

Lebanese-Australian model and TV host Jessica Kahawaty was also in attendance, going uber-glam in floor-length sequins from Saint Laurent.
