Glitz and glamour is all that matters when it comes to one of the most fashionably acclaimed events of the year. The 71st Cannes Film Festival is being held from May 8-May 19 2018 at Cannes, France. Bollywood is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to exhibiting their stylish manifestation. Cannes 2018 saw more than just fashion, rather B-Town divas coming together as an industry representing India. They took the task on their shoulders with pride, wearing the best of couture and putting their best foot forward in fashion. From Kangana Ranaut to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, we take you down the red carpet of who wore what at the French Riviera.
Cannes 2018 started with a bang from the Queen of Bollywood Kangana Ranaut. The Tanu Weds Manu actress sparkled on the red carpet with ravishing looks earning extra brownie points for picking stunning silhouettes. From a sheer gown to a jazzy cat suit, Kangana nailed her debut at the French Riviera.
Ranaut started off with a classic black sheer gown by Zuhair Murad and ended it with Nedret Taciroglu. She also made some eye catching street style appearances in Sabyasachi’s black akash tara number, and a suit with a bikini top inside by Tussardi.
The curvy and vivacious Huma was also among Bollywood’s A-listers to debut at Cannes. She was accompanied Kangana Ranaut to endorse a liquor brand at the festival. Huma went for a rather different ensemble altogether as she also ditched the gown for a Nikhil Thampi suit on the red carpet. However for the screening of ‘Manto’ she slayed in a sheer gown by Ali Younes.
Mallika Sherawat is known for her sexy avatars at Cannes red carpet. However this year she rather channeled her inner swan as she rolled it down with a lace lilac gown by Tony Ward. She did not go overboard in revealing skin and rather kept it chic and classy.
This was Deepika Padukone’s second year on French soil as the actress geared up for another anticipated fashion dilemma. Maybe Deepika’s stylist Shaleen Nathani loves to get her muse on a different track on the International front.
The Padmaavat actress kicked off the event with a white sheer gown with cape by Zuhair Murad and transitioned her way to some really funky street style fashion. However she did manage to raise brows with her hot pink ruffle dress by Ashish Studio with a dramatic trail that nearly got her compared to a dinosaur!
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her 17th consecutive appearance at the 71st Cannes Film Festival. The Jazbaa actress came in with her adorable daughter Aaradhya on the red carpet. The mother-daughter duo grabbed eyes of the paparazzi with their fun touch at the event.
Aishwarya picked a purple Michael Cinco number with an accentuated trail inspired by a butterfly. The dress was completely covered in Swarovski crystals and French palettes.
On the second day Ash donned a glamorous ivory couture by Rami Kadi and a rather unusual hair updo which made a stunning style statement.
We’re yet to see the new bride Sonam Kapoor walk the red carpet post marriage to Anand Ahuja. Watch this space for more updates on Cannes 2018.
