The 71st Cannes Film Festival, that kicked off on May 8, saw the presence of quite a few Indian celebrities. Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kangana Ranaut, and Huma Qureshi descended on the red carpet of the coveted film festival in their beautiful ensembles. While Sonam, Aiswharya have been regular at the festival, Deepika and Huma made their second appearances this year and it was a debut for Kangana. While the ladies managed to impress us with their fashion choices, all of them also made at least one blunder on the French land. These beauties slipped into some hideous clothes, making us wish they’d rather stayed in their hotel rooms.
Deepika Padukone, who made her appearance at Festival De Cannes for the second consecutive year, had quite a few changes during her three-day trip and considering she was getting a lot of flak for her choice of outfits of late, we didn’t have great expectations in the first place. But she proved us wrong and in fact made us go gaga over her almost every time she stepped out of her room, except this one time when she wore these striped separates from Tome NYC that featured a deep plunge, balloon sleeves and a pencil skirt. Red heels from Christian Louboutin, statement earrings from Viange Vintage, ring from Misho Designs and soft waves with centre-parting completed her look. She looked like a candy which we didn’t want to buy. ALSO READ: 6 days, 6 looks of Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai and others that owned Cannes 2018
Sonam Kapoor goes all out when she is at Cannes. We have seen some great fashion choices from her in the previous years. But this time, her choices looked quite lazy. Especially this Delpozo floral attire that she picked for an auction dinner for NGO Positive Planet wasn’t an attire to wear for a ‘dinner’ in the first place. The colour was more for a lunch or a brunch with friends. It made us wonder if she was the same Sonam who made some rather eye popping style statements on French Riviera last year. The golden Elie Saab ensemble is still so fresh in our minds, we are sure of it. But this year Sonam’s outings at the red carpet were quite a snooze fest.
Huma Qureshi, too, went to Cannes for the second time this year, and unfortunately she made quite some faux pas. But the worst one was the Nikhil Thampi pant suit that she wore to the red carpet. While we like that she dared to be different, the outfit just didn’t impress us. The awkward colour contrast of the pink against the grey mirrors made that suit look so odd. On top of that, it looked like she is floating on the red carpet thanks to the reflection on the grey paillettes.
Kangana Ranaut made her debut at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Needless to say, we were looking forward to her outings at the French Riviera. From a sheer Zuhair Murad gown to an edgy catsuit, Kangana made sure she impressed. However, this Halpern dress that she wore for a party made us cringe. With her hair in a high ponytail, she rounded out the look with a pair of classic black pumps. Agreed, it was a party so sparkles worked, but the dress itself was a big no for us.
