The Cannes Film Festival over these years has become synonymous with stand out appearances of the actresses who grace the red carpet more than a festival that celebrates cinema. With Indian films and Indian actors gaining massive global fan following and importance by the hour, Cannes has become a platform for our Desi beauties too, to dazzle the world with their sartorial choices. The glitzy 11 day festival in its 71st year now is the most prestigious film festival but looking at the celebrities, it looks a lot more like an occasion where they take every opportunity to showcase their finest glad rags for the various screenings and premiers.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who’s a Cannes regular now. Sonam Kapoor who’s also been attending the festival for 8 years, Deepika Padukone, Huma Qureshi and Kangana Ranaut are representing the Indian contingent with much aplomb in this 11 day soiree. If they say you learn from your mistakes, these beuaties and thier stylists have dfintely learned a lot of lessons in avoiding fashion faux pas at Cannes and as a result, this years’ Cannes apperances by our Desi girls were almost near perfect and didn’t disappoint. From Aishwarya’s ethereal appearances in Michael Cinco from last year to this year, to Deepika’s remarkable look in Ashi’s studio, to Kangana’s bold sass in an embroidered catsuit from Nedo By Nedret Taciroglu and everything in between, the girls did the fashion police proud by making each look count.
Here’s looking at these some of these beauties in their visual elegance from the French Riviera-
From exuding gold to flying high in this Pink ruffles outfit, Deepika carried Elan like second skin.
Her Vera Wang nude gown became one of the most talked about looks at Cannes as a newly wed Sonam bought her ever laudable fashion sense to the red carpet rather effortlessly. She made stripes look so classy that one can only feel in awe of her charisma.
Hands down my favorite Cannes debut, the Queen did it again. Kangana rocked the red carpet with her borderline kinky and super bold appearances at the Cannes. From the retro brunette to crazy catwoman, Kangana nailed it. each time.
AISHWARYA RAI BACHCHAN
She’s ethereally gorgeous, that is a well known fact, she’s sophistication, that’s also a well accepted trait and year after year Aishwarya, now frequently seen twinning with her adorable daughter Aaradhya made impressive Cannes appearances this time around as well.
Aishwarya picked a purple Michael Cinco number with an accentuated trail inspired by a butterfly. The dress was completely covered in Swarovski crystals and French palettes.On the second day Ash donned a glamorous ivory couture by Rami Kadi and a rather unusual hair updo which made a stunning style statement.
Huma went for a rather different ensemble altogether as she also ditched the gown for a Nikhil Thampi suit on the red carpet. However for the screening of ‘Manto’ she slayed in a sheer gown by Ali Younes.
Mallika Sherawat and Mahira Khan were some other Desi belles who made a mark at the 71st Cannes film festival but these 5 beauties definitely stole the limelight.
