Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty Kundra can pull off any look with style, even one with unusual sleeves. The star recently stepped out for an event in a gorgeous white off-shoulder gown by Maison Nabooda that also featured dramatic sleeves.
Since the dress featured a low neckline, Shilpa accessorised the dress with a stunning beaded choker. In the shoe department, the star opted for a killer pair of metallic heels. For her makeup, she chose to go for smokey eyes and nude lipstick. Keeping the focus on the dress, Kundra decided to go with a sleek ponytail.

While the gown was pure white it had interesting features that made it a standout. The pleated cape sleeves on the column dress were the most striking part as it added a whole new dimension to her style. A small detail like sleeves can make a huge impact on the look you are trying to achieve. While the colour, fit and style of a dress are important details to make note of when picking a gown, you should also take notice of the sleeves.
