Cannes may be widely known as a film festival but there is no gainsaying that every year we anxiously wait to witness the fashion fever at one of the world’s biggest events. And of course, the first women that cross our mind are none other than Bollywood A-listers including the likes of Deepika Padukone and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But without further ado, it’s high-time we accept that the two B-town ladies exuded nothing but big-time disappointment with their sartorial choices as the red carpet rolled out for the 75th edition of the extravaganza.
The ladies that really lit up the French Riveria, however, were Diipa Khosla, Pooja Hedge and Hina Khan. Turning up the heat in subtle summer shades and flattering feather work, their looks are worth talking about and taking inspiration from.
Attending her first event at the Indian Pavilion, Khosla turned up the heat in a breathtaking saree on the opening day. A sight to behold in an all-white Manish Malhotra ensemble, she was styled by the ace designer himself. The halter-neck blouse featured a plunging-neckline, with white feathers and silver sequins adding the right amount of drama. The rest of the saree was complete with white embroidered motifs, sequined borders and tassels. The influencer kept her accessories to a minimum, sporting statement silver earrings and that’s about it. Needless to say, she looked ready to beat the heat in that braided updo!
It seems like its feather weather! For the screening of Top Gun: Maverick, the actor strutted the red carpet in a strapless Maison Geyanna Youness number, accentuated with a gazillion feathers. The pink colour complimented her skin tone, while the voluminous ball gown cut made her look like a princess straight out of a fairytale. But hands down, what really elevated the angelic look was the corset neckline of the dress. Making all the right fashion choices, Hedge opted for a low rise ponytail with a middle parting. Long, dangly earrings (another scene-stealer this season!) and dewy makeup completed her look.
Making a statement in a sculpted gown featuring an extensive silhouette and feather details for her third look at Cannes, the starlet hit all the right notes in the Sophie Couture creation. The thigh-high slit showed off Khan’s glowing tan and toned legs, and the peplum-like bodice accentuated her waist in a picture-perfect manner. Her hair, done in waves and neatly set behind the ears, intricate earrings and minimalistic silver heels, provided way for the lavender outfit to grab all the attention. And oh boy, it did!
