Indian beauties Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor have all made their red carpet appearances at the ongoing Cannes film festival. Here’s a rundown on who wore what and who won hearts

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan needs no introduction on the red carpet. The beauty queen who has been a regular at the festival made everyone around the world go ‘ahh’on Day 1 (left) in a Disney-esque ballroom gown by Michael Cinco. The actress who looked every inch a royal princess with untied hair and subtle make-up paired with dark-hued lips. For Day 2, the diva broke fashion rules by wearing red on the red carpet by Ralph & Russo. A pair of danglers and hue lips only added to the actress’ ethereal beauty. From princess-ey to smoking red hot look, Ash has surely wiped out last year’s purple lip disaster from everyone’s mind!


Deepika Padukone

Dippy put her best fashion foot forward in a sheer violet Marchesa gown as she made a head turning debut appearance at the Cannes Film Festival red carpet on Day 1 (left).The actress let her long tresses loose, while opting for bold, dark lips and nails to compliment her attire. A pair of encrusted danglers and a ring complimented her look. After having impressed the fashion police with her Day 1 look, expectations were high for the actress to turn up the glam quotient on Day 2. But, her thigh-high slit Brandon Maxwell green gown was nothing but drab. The plain gown, high hair updo and smokey green eye make-up did nothing to make her stand out on the red carpet. Clearly a failure!

Sonam Kapoor

Having courted controversy with yellow feathery outfit in 2015, the actress this year chose to keep it simple, yet regal and stylish on both the days. On Day 1 (left), Sonam looked more than resplendent in a pink Elie Saab gown and custom-made jewellery. Upping the fashion ante on the second day, the fashionista looked regal in a gold Elie Saab gown with a plunging neckline which was cinched at the waist with a sleek gold belt. The actress completed her look with a statement ring from Chopard and a gold clutch. Centre-parted hair, shimmery gold smokey eyes and nude lips complimented her sleek look.
