Five movies in four years, with two more on the floors, countless fashion shows, awards ceremonies, and movie premieres later, the leggy lass clearly looks like she's enjoying herself. And why wouldn't she? She was hand-picked to be L'Oreal Paris's youngest brand ambassador. Roberto Cavalli invited her to an intimate private dinner in Cannes. She's considered one of the bright young talents in the Hindi film industry. Not bad for a career four years in.

"I'm very comfortable in what I wear and who I am," she says.

Her incredible affinity for clothes ties into the one thing everyone repeatedly mentions when asked about Sonam: that she's "all heart". Anil Kapoor says that his oldest child makes emotional decisions, calling her "impractical". Anamika Khanna says that the stylish star "thinks with her heart". And in an industry rife with squabbles and spats, nary a person has anything unkind to say about her.

Lot of the credit, says dad Anil, goes to Sonam's mother Sunita, who prefers to stay far from the limelight. Her profound influence is the reason Sonam is an avid reader, according to Anil. "When I was courting Sunita, she would finish two books a day. Sonam is the same way. Even now, Sonam goes into a room and doesn't come out for 48 hours, and when we go to check on her, we find that she's been reading the whole time." The Kapoors actively encourage their three off springs to be independent, and, as an established, successful actor, Anil made a conscious effort to stay away from her career. "I want my kids to make mistakes, because that's how you learn. I never got any help from my parents and it worked for me, and now it's working for Sonam." It's grounding that has likely kept the young actor from losing focus or getting mired in controversies.

As for what they think of their daughter being labeled a style icon, Kapoor senior pauses. "It comes naturally to her. My wife was a designer; I remember going to the Ensemble opening 20 years ago. We haven't discouraged it in Sonam. She is first an actor and then a style icon and we are aware of how the two go hand in hand."
