So, it is that time of the year again and we have already braced ourselves to be blown over by our Bollywood beauties who plan to light up the French Riveria this week at the Cannes Film Festival 2017. While Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been now representing India since decades, Sonam Kapoor has become a poster girl for edgy, relatable fashion in the West. This year, Deepika Padukone too will be joining the bevy of leggy lasses at Cannes and all eyes are on her. Here are a few looks which impressed us over the years. Take a look, feast your eyes and sit tight for the Cannes 2o17 looks!
Sonam Kapoor in Ralph and Russo
Sonam’s sartorial choices (ALL of them) last year at Cannes were pure gold but this particular number from the house of Ralph and Russo particularly cast a spell on us! Black Magic woman, Sonam Kapoor, wore this breathtakingly beautiful creation to reinstate her position as the ultimate fashionista of international repute with this vintage creation. Sonam’s ruffled dress with a sweetheart neckline coupled with a diamond Chopard necklace transformed her into a Goddess. Her bold red lips, understated makeup and a clean updo completed the look.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Roberto Cavalli
The year of 2014 was touted to be the ‘Annus Mirabilis’ for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who slayed the french red carpet in a super chic Roberto Cavalli metallic, gold number. She had received a lot of flak in the year 2013 as the fashion police were not very forgiving of all the post pregnancy weight she was carrying at the do. To top it up, her sartorial sense did not impress the critics. But donning this particular gown with fishtail cut was her final act of redemption! We still rate this look as her best and swear by her luscious big hair and sinful, red lips!
Katrina Kaif in Ellie Saab
Katrina Kaif turned heads in her fire engine red, form fitting Ellie Saab ensemble in the year 2015. She breathed fire in this one truly! She kept her hair straight and sleek and matched her lips with her well-fitted gown. Though the actress has had just a couple of Cannes red carpet looks, we found this one to be her best. Do you agree?
Sonam Kapoor in Rimzim Dadu
Sonam shattered plenty of stereotypes and created a new trend by opting to wear a saree by a lesser known designer to the French Riveria’s biggest red carpet do! Sonam wore this ‘futuristic’ saree last year to make a strong statement about representing today’s India which is both structured and fluid. Did you know the blue portion of the pallu is essentially an oil painting? She is modern, yet rooted and that’s why she successfully puts India on the global map, every single time..without fail!
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Ralph and Russo
Aishwarya’s pretty origami gown by Ralph and Russo makes her look like a delicious scoop of swirled up Cookies N Cream ice cream, doesn’t it? With her hair in loose waves, she sure looked like a princess from a faraway land in this one. Ash donned this creation in the year 2015 and silenced her critics with this look.

Frieda Pinto in Michael Kors
Another Loreal girl, Frieda, who by the way is a big Hollywood name now rarely disappoints at Cannes. Amongst her all looks, we have picked out this one in particular from the archives of 2014, because it has everything which makes you say, I am worth it! The Michael Kors creation in nude tulle has a rather clean cut up to its bust and then it begins…we love love love the effect the feathers give to this whole creation. Frieda is poised yet dramatic in this one. We like it.
Sonam Kapoor in Ralph and Russo
As described by sister Rhea Kapoor who is also her stylist, Sonam Kapoor loves drama and wants to play a character out of a fairy tale at any red carpet event. So how does one appeal to the princess in her? Well, just put her in a gorgeous dress with a wondrous cape and she would be good to go! Check out this chic saree inspired Ralph and Russo pristine white creation with a cape! Sonam kept the accessories to a minimum and chose clean straight hair so as to keep us focused on her dress, and nothing else.
