The Cannes Film Festival aka the world’s most glamorous & sensational international cinematographic festival is here and we can’t wait to see who’s wearing what !
Here’s a throwback series (Plus our takes) on what our Bollywood celebrities have been wearing on the Red Carpet for the past 6 years. You might wanna grab a coffee & scout for a comfortable spot since its gonna be an exhaustive post!
Rewind – Cannes 2010
Aishwarya Rai made her debut on the Red Carpet back in 2010 and we should confess she looked ravishing back then (& as much as she does now!). We love the bare neck and how all the attention is given to the solitaire details.
We know no outfit that does justice to a lady with an hourglass figure than the age old humble saree. More so when you pair it with the right blouse and chandeliers. Presenting the stunning Deepika Padukone at Cannes 2010 !
There is something called dedication, something called commitment to work but then what sums it up all is Mallika Sherawat. She was seen at Cannes 2010 with a snake around her neck to promote her then film, Hisss. Phew!
Come Cannes 2011
If you ask me my favourite Bollywood celebrity when it comes to dress sense, it’s hands down Sonam Kapoor. She carries off absolutely any dress with elan & poise! Only she could look so comfortable donning that non-symmetry-yet-geometric outfit.
The outfit has everything – its fluid, it has gorgeous colours, the box clutch – everything on point ! But is it Cannes Red Carpet worthy? We have our own doubts!
Come Cannes 2012
Yes, we know Aishwarya was in the post-pregnancy period then; but we also know there could have been other outfits to accentuate her best assets.
Cannes 2013 (Once upon a time…)
I didn’t say I love her just for the sake of it. Look at her! I can’t take off my eyes from that outfit!
Aaa.. Vidya Balan is definitely not your go-to choice for the best sartorial choices. But if not the outfit, she could have at least loosened up a few strands of her tightly tucked in hair. I mean, dressing up also means playing along right?
Sherlyn, why? Why?
Recap Cannes 2014
10/10 for the colour | 10/10 for the pattern ! But again, the hair could have had a little casual air. Freida looks every bit of a runaway bride!
Oh this one’s a sheer favorite! Love Sonam’s retro hairstyle & contagious smile she wore in Cannes 2014. And this black gown is just a fairytale in itself!
Cannes 2015 (Approaching 2017 in a bit)
While this outfit received mixed reviews, critics were disappointed with Katrina’s makeup. No qualms but we are all good with her outfit.
This is ‘out of the bed’ look taken to the next level. *Disappointed*
Richa Sharma did the impossible. She wore to Cannes what you and I wore to our junior college freshers. In the midst of rich colours, texters & patterns, Richa went low key in a chaos of colours and a tacky belt.
Cannes 2016 (Almost there)
Yes, that was me who told you I admire Sonam Kapoor’s dress sense to the core & she carries off absolutely anything. But, life comes with exceptions!
After carrying snakes around her neck, Mallika surprised us with her outfit at Cannes 2016. Love this fluid dress and the blast of a fresh colour!
Cannes 2017 (Haven’t you all been waiting for this one?)
By now you know I’m a sucker for anything that’s sheer, colourful & has a playful element in it. So I’m guessing you already know how much I’m in love with Deepika’s Cannes outfit for 2017 !
That’s all for now guys! Shall keep you updated with the best and worst outfits from Cannes 2017. Don’t forget to comment below and tell us your take !
