The Cannes Film Festival has officially commenced and while the even is all about motion arts, we also have our eager eyes set on the red carpet which, each year, showcases some of the world's best artists. From directors, actors, to actresses, the Cannes Red Carpet is an whole event in itself. Indian celebs too dazzled at the 71st Cannes Film Festival, as Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone, Huma Qureshi, and Mallika Sherawat made their presence felt at the French Riviera in their best avatars. Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai joined later on Friday.
'Queen' Kangana, who was the first to be a part of the festival, debuted in an ultra-glamorous Sabyasachi saree as she nailed her pre-Cannes look in retro style. She walked the red carpet the next day in a resplendent sheer Zuhair Murad gown. She is part of Vive Le Cinema, an initiative by liquor brand Grey Goos to celebrate global cinematic excellence.”It is overwhelming to witness the recognition and appreciation for Indian cinema at international platforms like Cannes,” Kangana said.
Deepika, who had been teasing her fans from the last three days with her different looks, finally shared her red carpet look on social media, blowing several minds. Her second year at the film festival, she went as the brand ambassador of fashion brand L'Oreal. Dippy wore a stunning white sheer gown with cape detailing designed by Zuhair Murad. Earlier, she had shared photos of herself in a pair of white t-shirt and blue jeans, with nude heels. For denim look two, she opted for flared bell-bottoms, a simple white low neck tee, and Roger Vivier shoes.
For her Cannes debut, actress Huma Qureshi ditched the gown and instead, opted for a beige pantsuit, designed by Nikhil Thampi. Mallika Sherawat stunned with her look, as she walked the talk styled by Wil Ariyamethe, one of the leading stylists of Paris, dressed in a gorgeous gown by couturier designer Tony Ward and exquisite Ferragamo shoes. She has collaborated with 'Free A Girl India', an NGO fighting against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children in India.
