For years together, the Cannes Film Festival has been the red carpet haven for fashion lovers. If you’re going to be strutting your stuff at Cannes, you better have studied the rule book ‘coz fashion moguls (and the whole world) have their eyes on everyone that graces the iconic red carpet at the French Riviera. And who better than our Bollywood girls to prove that? From Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor, all our desi girls were lauded for their appearances at Cannes this year. That’s not all, there were some other noteworthy appearances too that deserve a round of applause. Here’s a roundup…
 

Deepika Padukone

You know how they say your first impression is also your last? Well, Dpad knew this too well as she sashayed down the red carpet in one jaw-dropping look after another during her first stint at Cannes. While her red Johanna Ortiz gown was so sexy, her pink satin Galvin London halter dress during media interactions was all things dreamy and girlie. But if you ask us, it was her Brandon Maxwell green gown replete with dramatic eyes that was a bigger winner for us. But then again, it’s Dippy we’re talking about—she learnt the ropes of slaying the red carpet too many years ago.

Rihanna attended the Cannes Film Festival to make her appearance at the ‘Rihanna Loves Chopard’ collaboration at Martinez Hotel. And boy, was she dressed to perfection or what! RiRi wore a black strapless yet voluminous gown by Ralph & Russo with an organza shawl replete with Chopard jewellery. Red lips and red nails finished out her look. Everybody go home, RiRi won the fashion race a long time ago.

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor is a celebrated star when it comes to the Cannes Film Festival. For all the years she has attended the fest, she’s only won praises galore for her ballsy appearances on the red carpet. This year was no different. While her Anamika Khanna ensemble was a daring one, her Elie Saab gown did the magic for us. Those dramatic sleeves, the jewellery and the messy bun—it was elegance personified!

Kendall Jenner

When Kendall Jenner walks the Cannes red carpet, she owns every bit of the moment. It was a gown-cum-mini dress by Giambattista Valli for the supermodel. The train behind was dramatic, the sheer socks were every bit attention grabbing and the knotted bun was just the kinda hairdo this red carpet look deserved. A runway queen descending down the red carpet—expect the papzz to go cray. Of course, that’s exactly what happened!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Ash has been attending the Cannes Film Festival for the last 16 years. What does that tell you? Mrs. Bachchan knows what red carpet appearances demand. Sure, her edgy looks might have made a few critiques shudder but what are red carpet looks if you don’t experiment, right? This year at Cannes, Ash won us over with all of her looks but our fave was the Cinderella-like powder blue gown by Michael Cinco. If this one didn’t give you the fairytale vibes, we don’t know what will!

Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid

When you’re Bella Hadid, you already know the rules of slaying. Her strapless number got the media talking but if you ask us, it was her second look on the Cannes red carpet that had our attention. The Victoria’s Secret beauty wore a red Dior gown with serpent jewellery and a high sleek ponytail. Graphic eyes and crimson lips rounded off her makeup. What did we tell you? Ms. Hadid is a slay queen!
