[dropcaps round=”no”]T[/dropcaps]he 67th Cannes International Film Festival is all set to begin in the tranquil French Riviera from May 16, and soon our Bollywood divas would be seen attending it in their glamorous best. Year after year, everyone’s eagerly waiting to see the Bollywood actresses strutting their stuff, making that flawless red carpet appearance which leaves everyone talking. As for the list of attendees from Bollywood, we are expecting Mallika Sherawat, Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan this year.
Films or no films, this year too Mallika Sherawat would be a part of Cannes for the fifth consecutive year and she will also soon be seen in a CBS series. Keeping in mind what the failed actress had said about Indian cinema in her previous outings at the fest, we are expecting some outrageous comments of hers, yet again.
The actress tweeted about her presence at Cannes saying, “Feeling honoured to be invited to inaugurate the CII Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival 2014.”
Mallika was earlier criticised for her over-exposing look at the festival in a thigh-high slit lehenga-skirt and choli. This year the actress, who has been out of the limelight for quite some time, also shared a sketch of her outfit. Designed by Manish Tripathi the outfit features a white lehenga with dull gold zari and mother of pearl detailing coupled with a silk bodice with fine zari and bead work. Sounds regal and not tacky in the least! Let’s see how it pans out though…
Bollywood’s fashionista Sonam Kapoor is also all geared up to walk the red carpet. The pretty actress, who is the brand ambassador of L’Oreal Paris and has been attending Cannes ever since, will attend the international film festival on 18 and 19 May. Sonam, who is busy working on two films ‘Dolly Ki Doli’ and the ‘Khoobsurat’ remake, would be seen for the fourth time at Cannes.
“I am just looking forward to getting out of Mumbai. I have been shooting constantly in this heat. I needed a break and Cannes is the perfect getaway for me. It will be a refreshing change from all this work,” Sonam said in an earlier interview.
Last year the fashionista had sported a nose ring with bold make-up which caught everyone’s attention. On being asked about her style for Cannes this year the fashionista replied, “This time the make-up will be glossier, with pops of colours. We are still deciding on the clothes that I am going to wear. I can’t divulge much but Anamika’s creations will definitely be part of one of my red carpet outings.”
Apart from Sonam, other brand ambassadors of the cosmetic company include Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Freida Pinto who will also be present at the film festival.
