When Sonam raised the temperature in Paris

Last updated on: July 04, 2017 13:13 IST

The Bollywood star put seasoned models to shame with her chutzpah as she strode the ramp for Ralph & Russo.

British couture house Ralph and Russo -- brainchild of designer Tamara Ralph and CEO Michael Russo -- showcased their latest collection at the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2017.

Looking like a million dollars, Sonam Kapoor walked the ramp as a showstopper.

Sonam looked drop dead gorgeous in a dramatic wedding gown.

Impeccable style. Confidence and poise. Our gal's got it all covered!

Take a look!

Sonam Kapoor

Hold your breath. Sonam Kapoor is here.
The Neerja star was dressed in the most dramatic wedding gown ever, which was a fusion between the old and the new, contemporary fashion and something traditional.

Sonam was dressed in a gorgeous, figure-hugging white bridal gown from Ralph & Russo's Autumn Winter collection.
She finished off the look with a matching train and a lovely veil.
Sonam also gave her look an Indian twist with a bejeweled maang-tikka.

The actor closed the show for the designers and the minute she stepped out, almost everyone in the audience reached out for their phones.
Sonam is probably the only Indian actor to walk this ramp.

The stunning gown was embellished with crystals and featured a dramatic train.
With Sonam walking down the ramp, the designers made sure that they ended their show with a bang.
These are the same designers behind Aishwarya Bachchan Rai's fairy tale worthy red off-shoulder gown at Cannes this year.
