BEST DRESSED & WORST DRESSED At Cannes 2018: Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Huma Qureshi Or Kangana Ranaut?

If I had to compare the temperature set by Bollywood ladies at Cannes red carpet this year with what they showcased in 2017, probably the mercury levels would drop.

Overall, a decent show by Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai, Kangana Ranaut (who made her debut at Cannes) and Sonam Kapoor, but if you wanted to see fireworks, then Cannes was not the place to be.

Starting with the one who took to the red carpet first, Deepika Padukone- the actress let us down with a few of her day looks but wowed us with her smouldering hot red carpet avatars.

On Day 1, Deepika was a vision in white in a sheer gown by Zuhair Murad. With a deep neck and a beautiful cape, Deepika looked like a goddess. On Day 2, Dippy was in mood for some fun. She wore a ruffled gown with big winged sleeves by Ashi Studio. Besides all the drama happening in that outfit, the bright fuchsia also took a lot of attention. She was a delight in both the red carpet looks. However, here are a few of her day looks, which left me slightly disappointed:

Coming to Kangana Ranaut, who made her Cannes debut this year- she was a total rockstar! Not even one look of the fashionista was a letdown. Be it the shimmery catsuit by Nedret Taciroglu
 or the sheer Zuhair Murad gown, Kangana displayed a range of variety, quirkiness and styles at the film festival.

Her day looks were fresh and bold too, take a look:

Aishwarya Rai arrived at the Film Festival with her darling daughter, Aaradhya and won hearts on Day 1 itself with a spectacular butterfly inspired gown by Michael Cinco
. The work on gown’s long train was intricate and well-crafted. Mrs Bachchan completed her look with a bold lip and smokey eyes. On Day 2, she opted for a rather simple and understated look- a beige shimmery structured gown by Rami Gadi. The highlight of the look was the avante-garde hairdo.

Aishwarya’s day looks were vibrant and full of colours:

The new bride, Sonam Kapoor arrived the last at Cannes but her fashion game was on point. Her first look was a fusion between desi and videsi. A white starlit Ralph & Rusoo outfit with a striking cape and Mediterranean hairdo, accessorised with Indian parandi- Sonam was a delight to watch. The second red carpet look was a complete contrast to the first one as Mrs Ahuja chose to go the Cinderella way in a Vera Wang number with dash of yellow in the gown and her make-up.

Lastly, it’s time to dissect Huma Qureshi’s wardrobe at the gala. I appreciate that Huma pulled off most of her looks with confidence and poise but what left me disappointed was the choice of outfits.

A few of them did make a difference and caught our attention like the first outfit she donned at the do- a white simple gown with an interesting cape and crochet work on the bosom. Huma looked pretty.

The one which she wore at the Chopard party was again a bold choice and full points to Huma for carrying it off well but the outfit did not impress me much. Probably the over-sized jacket she draped herself in was a bummer.

Most of her day outfits were again a bit of a disappointment especially the bright red dress and the white-blue tracksuit.

Overall, a decent attempt at standing out in the crowd but there was scope for better.

My verdict- Kangana Ranaut was the Best Dressed at the event but Deepika Padukone’s Pink ruffled dramatic gown is the look which will stay back with me from 2018’s red carpet.

To conclude the Cannes 2018 fashion diary, 
the film festival left a smile on my face while I was expecting a big grin!
