Talk about Cannes red carpet fashion and the first thing that comes to mind are beautifully crafted gowns and stunning jewellery by major European design houses. It’s not common to talk about Indian designers and their gorgeous creations that have our Bollywood divas sashaying amid the global glitterati, with their designs reflecting Indian traditions and culture in the lines and cuts, as well as the emebellishments. As 69th edition of the Cannes Film Festival goes under way, let’s walk down memory lane and take a look at the Bollywood celebs who chose Indianwear for the French red carpet.
Cannes 2013: Sonam Kapoor decided to go traditional at the screening of The Great Gatsby. She opted for a lace sari by Anamika Khanna and an embroidered jacket. What stood out in this look of hers was the pearl nathni which she pulled off well. Verdict: Hit.
Cannes 2013: At Young And Beautiful premiere, Vidya Balan wore her nude Sabyasachi sari with jewellery by Pankaj Surana. What caught everyone’s attention was her jadau nathni. Verdict: Hit.
Cannes 2013: Aishwarya opted for a gold Tarun Tahliani sari for one of her red carpet appearances. We think the actor went a little overboard with gold. Verdict: Fail.
Cannes 2013: Aishwarya wore a Abu Jani Sandeep-Khosla floor-length anarkali with colourful embroidery for the premiere of Blood Ties.
Cannes 2013: Vidya is seen in a sea green organza sari with a cream blouse and pearls. No doubt Vidya looks very graceful but the pearls and the broad border makes her look much older.
Cannes 2013: Sonam Kapoor chose a stunning creation by Shehla Khan during one of her red carpet appearances at Cannes. The actor managed to carry the look well.
Cannes 2010: Here, Aishwarya can be seen in a black and gold Sabyasachi sari. Too flashy we say! She could have done better, no?
Cannes 2013: Yet again, Vidya Balan can be seen in a white-gold Sabyasachi sari and dark embellished blouse. We think she was trying to go for a regal look but it failed miserably.
