At the ongoing Cannes Film Festival, we were treated to a host of stunning looks by our Bollywood beauties and we noticed some common threads. Red lips were a favourite and so were nude lips. While embellished outfits were the cornerstone of the event, there was one colour that was common to all our favourite divas who walked the famed red carpet.
Every Indian celebrity wore white at one point or another on the Cannes red carpet and it was interesting to see how they each teamed their white outfits with different makeup and hair.
- Diana Penty
- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
- Priyanka Chopra Jonas
- Kangana Ranaut
- Deepika Padukone
- Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
Diana Penty wore an Amit Aggarwal white saree outfit that she paired with red lips and a centre-parted, tied back hairdo. When you wear a monochrome, light coloured outfit like white, you can go bold with your choice of lip colour like Diana has.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
The former Miss World and Cannes red carpet regular went the opposite way with her makeup. She chose to go dark on her eyes with her Ashi Studio gown. She tied the smokey eye to the outfit by adding a silver inner corner highlight to her eyes.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas
PeeCeeJo wore not one but two white outfits during her debut at Cannes, and each time her hair and makeup were styled differently. With the caped one-shoulder Honayda pleated jumpsuit, she wore a faux Mohawk and intense highlighter which went around her eye socket (this technique is called draping). With her strapless white Georges Hobeika gown, she wore insane brown cat eye shaped winged liner that we fell instantly in love with!
Kangana Ranaut usually brings a lot of sizzle with her daring and fierce choices in her ensembles, and this time was no different. Her white Toni Maticevski halter neck gown was teamed with shimmery blue eye liner and a sleek top knot and we loved it!
Deepika’s sartorial style had us drooling all through her Cannes outing. She also chose two very elegant white outfits and we loved the romanticism of the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini transparent top and trousers which she paired with equally romantic makeup. We cannot say enough about the exaggerated Peter Dundas bow dress that she paired with a fierce under liner and sleek top ponytail!
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
This lady seems to take no wrong step when fashion and beauty are concerned. She stunned in this Ralph & Russo structured pant suit with traditional Indian statement jewellery. She chose simple, no-fuss makeup and hair with nude lips and sleek, centre-parted low bun. What’s not to love?
