Just when you thought Narendra Modi's sunglasses were the most eclectic fashion statement this year.

Sonam Kapoor's second day at Cannes garnered a lot of attention on Twitter about who/what she resembles in her Elie Saab gown on Monday. The actress donned the (ahem) feathered and beaded ensemble to attend the premiere of 'Inside Out' (this can't be a coincidence, surely), and has already inspired a few puns, not unlike Rihanna's canary-yellow cape i.e. the one the singer wore to the Met Gala recently.

We're not sure who's won the award for 'closest-resemblance-to-random-things' just yet, but it's fairly close:

Rihanna apparently looked like Spongebob. This guy thinks Sonam's dress be a Komondor (that rug that walks away, then you realise it's a dog):

Rihanna be a cheese omelette. According to this tweeter, Sonam be a stack of hay.

Rihanna make a mean pizza. Sonam's gown might be made of the stuff buffalos be fed.

Rihanna be the Yellow Brick Road. Sonam, says this guy, is trying to look just like her pater Anil Kapoor (known for his luxe mop of hair).
