For her first appearance, she wore a glittery ombre gown by international designer Roberto Cavalli and teamed it up with a pair of giant silver earrings by Chopard. Her next appearance was in a Georges Hoebieka bridal tulle gown that she matched with Nick’s white suit. Together, the couple created some stunning scenes while posing in front of the photographers at the red carpet. Priyanka looked no less than a bride in her pristine white ensemble as the couple attended the premiere of Les Plus Belles Annees D’Une Vie.

Most big events this year have been cancelled due to the growing pandemic. The news of Cannes cancellation this year was confirmed by the Festival director of the event, Thierry Frémaux who talked to Screen Daily and said, “Under the circumstances, a physical edition of Cannes 2020 is hard to envisage, so we’ll have to do something different. A ‘festival’ is a collective party, a spectacle that brings together an audience in a given location, in this case on the Croisette, in the presence of thousands of people. Everyone understands that that’s impossible this year.”
From India, the celebrities that regularly seen at the Cannes Film Festivals are Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. Last year, actor Hina Khan also walked the prestigious red carpet to represent her film.
