Mumbai, March 3 (IANS) Sonam Kapoor's metamorphosis as a fashion diva came a full circle at the Filmfare Awards ceremony when she became the only Bollywood actress to wear a specially-designed gown by Paris-based fashion house Chanel.

'I just kept staring at the beautiful basic but simple white gown that they sent me. Yes, I think I'm the first Indian celebrity to be dressed by Chanel in Bollywood. I'm so excited. I felt like Cinderella before the ball. Never before have I been so excited about dressing up for an event,' Sonam, who attended the award function Saturday, told IANS.

Apparently, after seeing Sonam on magazine covers like Verve and Elle, Chanel voluntarily decided to send her a gown from their special-celebrity closet.

'That's right. My off-shoulder gown came from their special-celebrity collection,' said Sonam who loves dressing up in light shades and avoids accessories.

'They just flew over three Chanel gowns for me to choose from. I liked the white one. I prefer light shades and I avoid accessories. They take away from the basic look of your clothes. And what Chanel sent me for the Filmfare Awards certainly needed no enhancement. It was divine per se,' she added.

A lot of designers are comparing Sonam to Penelope Cruz.

'It was Sanjay Leela Bhansali who first compared me to her. I think it's a huge compliment. It isn't as if I'm making a conscious effort to dress fashionably. I wear what I'm comfortable in,' said Sonam.
