The 72nd Cannes Film Festival begins today, the annual film
festival held in the scenic countryside Cannes in France previews films of all
genres from all around the world. The city of Cannes for the next week is about
to be bustling with some of the biggest names in the film industry from around
the world and among those forerunners are some of our Indian beauties that have
made a name for themselves on the red carpets of the prestigious film festival.
1. AISHWARYA RAI BACHCHAN
2. DEEPIKA PADUKONE
From the white and gold Rohit Bal saree to the Zuhair Murad cape gown that now also adorns her wax statue at Madame Tussauds and her 2018 Ashi Studio pink ruffle couture outfit, Deepika Padukone has mesmerised us each time she steps on the Cannes red carpet. Taking notes from her MET Gala 2019 outfit which was all about structure and drama, a favourite of her designer for this year Peter Dundas is the one we’re taking a punt on.
We think this by far is the best designer-actor duo we have
come across. With Deepika’s slender frame and Dundas’ exuberant couture
designs, this one is bound to amaze us for sure. A look at the designers
couture Spring/ Summer 2019 collection speaks for the extravaganza we will be
served. His current collection features leopard prints, sequins and a lot of
leather, so here’s hoping we see our tall Bollywood lass amaze us with some
cutting edge outfit this year too.
3. SONAM KAPOOR
4. KANGANA RANAUT
This is the second round of Cannes festivities Kangana
Ranaut will be a part of. The actress in 2018 had us completely wowed in her
Zuhair Murad dusty mint gown with a waist cape to die for! Even her embroidered
cat-suit from Nedo by Nedret Taciroglu pushed a notch up with her curly tresses
left natural was breathtaking. Can’t forget her Sharmila Tagore vibe black
saree by Sabyasachi either.
Falguni and Shane Peacock Creation
This year the actress is all set to stun us all with a
Falguni and Shane Peacock creation which the actress claims is the ‘saree of
her dreams’, the saree is said to bring forgotten weaves to the international
audience, while it’s a new customised saree, a look into the designer duo’s
collection gives a little sneak peak into what might be featured at the red
carpet this week. Mirror work, embroidery or chrome appliqué methods from the
past, we can’t wait to see the outfit!
5. HUMA QURESHI and DIANA PENTY
Hina Khan Diana Penty and Huma Qureshi
Some of the other actresses who are scheduled to appear at Cannes include Huma Qureshi and Diana Penty who is all set to make her debut on the Cannes red carpet. Hina Khan, the famous television actress will be on the red carpet too for the screening of her film Lines. So many Indians at Cannes, we can’t wait for them to mesmerise the world with their beauty just as we are.
