71st Cannes International Film Festival, that started on May 8, saw a host of Bollywood celebrities in attendance. From the regulars like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to the debutantes like Kangana Ranaut, B-town celebs dazzled at the French riviera, putting their best fashion foot forward. I won’t say all our favourite ladies had their Cinderella moment at the red carpet since there were a few who committed fashion faux here and there. Though I loved Aishwarya’s butterfly inspired Michael Cinco gown and adored the way Deepika carried herself, I was disappointed with Sonam Kapoor Ahuja the most. The spark in her was missing and the attires she picked were all so dull and boring. Wonder if the actress didn’t get enough time to concentrate on her Cannes wardrobe since she was so occupied with her wedding itself. Yet this year, we had also had some eye-popping trends – from Kangana’s catsuits to Mahira Khan’s power dressing – trends stunned me like never before.
Ask me personally, and I would pick Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the one who made the most stunning outing on the French soil this year since she was consistent throughout. But, as someone once told: different individuals will have different opinions, your opinion may vary. You, readers, might feel Deepika was a stunner or that Aishwarya or Mahira were the real show stealers. But for the ones who didn’t really follow this film/fashion festival, we bring to you a recap of the style outings from the past few days that will help you decide the winner. So go ahead, take a look and vote for the lady that impressed you the most… Also Read: Cannes 2018: Twilight actress Kristen Stewart takes off her heels at the red carpet to protest against the ‘no flats’ policy
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
The flawless beauty had her own share of fashion blunders in the past. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has learnt it hard way. From goofing up initially to stunning us now, the former beauty queen’s graph has only seen an upward trend. We loved the attires she picked this year and that peacock inspired gown with a 3-meter long train was a stunner. I was sold the time she walked the red carpet flaunting that long train. But she wasn’t done. She was yet to sizzle and how!
I am so glad that Deepika Padukone’s this year’s Cannes journey was so different than what she had last year. With elegant gowns and bold silhouettes, she went all out with her fashion choices. It seemed DP had vowed to look her all-time best at the festival this year and well, she was successful at it. From a purple pantsuit to a sheer gown – she deserves a round of applause for the choices she made.
There must be something wrong with Sonam Kapoor this year. The actress, who’s known for being a fashionista when it comes to her red carpet outings, was missing the spark this time around. She looked as pale as her attires. With no loud colours and equally boring silhouettes, her Cannes outings were nothing less than a snooze feast. Yet, if you think, she was all subtle and played safe, you can go ahead and vote for this beauty. Also Read: Cannes 2018: Sonam Kapoor flaunts some hubby love at the French Riviera
She was just being herself, even at Cannes. Kangana Ranaut’s fashion wardrobe for Cannes was equal parts bold and madness. She stuck to her image for being experimental yet didn’t compromise on her tag of being a fashionista. From catsuits to elegant gowns, her style file was a mix of everything that’s classy and chic.
Was Huma Qureshi trying to justify silhouettes that don’t really flatter her body? None of her attires except the golden Manish Malhotra sheer dress worked wonders. Coming to her Nikhil Thampi pantsuit, well, it was the worst of all. What was she even thinking then? Fortunately, the actress went a bit subtle with her next outings. Nonetheless, you can vote for her if you think her efforts were commendable enough.
The Raees actress made her debut on the French soil this year. And trust me, she was at par with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Stunning attires and the way she paired her looks deserve your attention. Every look of hers throughout her three day journey was whistle-worthy. Light colours and that ever charming face is such a lethal combination, right?
We bet you are wondering as to who was the best of all. Think carefully and take your own sweet time before you vote. In the end, I hope the best lady wins.
