India is making all the noise at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Today we’ll be looking at how the Indians are fairing at the Cannes 2022 red carpet.
The event that started on 17th May is now drawing to a close. Cannes is a celebration of handpicked films. Stars from all over the world gather in the South of France. Naturally, the film euphoria remains high. However, what also remains high? The fashion quotient. At the event, stars show up in stunning outfits. Pose for the photos & boom! Next day onto the next look. Over the years, the Cannes Film Festival has given us some iconic looks. Who can forget Princess Diana at the the1987 event? Or Julianne Moore in 2018? The red carpet attracts attention like no other. And some might say it’s rightly so.
This year it is the 75th edition of this festival. India is a vital part of the event this year. It is the official country of honour. Additionally, Deepika Padukone was named a member of the top jury list. Several Indians also made it to the Cannes Lions jury list. The event will screen will also screen a total of six Indian films. This shift of balance means that a large Indian contingent will be present in Cannes. We do get your curiosity to have a look at them. On that note, here are all the looks of Indians on the Cannes 2022 red carpet.
Deepika Padukone: Indians at Cannes 2022 red carpet
Padukone started the festival as its jury member. By the end of it, she’ll be remembered as a fashion icon too. She was the first Indian to appear at the Cannes 2022. However, she is no first-timer when it comes to Cannes Film Festival appearances. And as always, she is one of the high-profile Indians on the Cannes 2022 red carpet.
Her first appearance Deepika made at the Cannes 2022 was in a Louis Vuitton Fall Collection sleeveless dress. She coupled it up with a knee-high boot. But it was on Day 3 that she brought her A-game on board. This time again, a Louis Vuitton red gown. The outfit had minimal make-up and a diamond necklace. Red on red might seem to be a gamble for many. But for her? Not in a million miles.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aishwarya is seemingly on a hiatus from films. Nevertheless, her fashion sense stays the same. Besides, this was her 20th appearance at the Cannes Film Festival. Without her, a list of Indians at the Cannes 2022 red carpet would be incomplete. Notably, she was the first Indian actor to serve as a jury member. Her first appearance at Cannes came in 2002.
Like Deepika, she also wore her best outfit on the third day of the event. She went for a specially designed Gaurav Gupta gown. Powder pink in colour, it had an eye-catching shoulder attachment. Furthermore, she put on neat make-up with her hair swept to the side. The designer later revealed the idea behind this outfit. The birth of Venus inspired the dress. Notably, it took over 20 days and 100 people to get it ready. Aishwarya’s husband Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya were also spotted in Cannes.
The debut Indians at Cannes 2022 red carpet
Aditi Rao Hydari
The actress is making her debut at the Cannes Film Festival. However, her elegance means that she is a show-stealer already. She has gone for Sabyasachi as her designer. Best outfit? An ivory sari with a diamond choker. The results? You’ll find it hard to turn your eyes off her, and in a good way.
Hegde is yet another debutant at the Cannes film fest. She has not had a smooth start to her Bollywood career. Nevertheless, her Cannes red carpet career is off to a flyer. She wore a beautiful gown with a plunging neckline.
A feathery texture on this off-shoulder outfit grabbed the eyeballs. But it was the tried and tested ponytail that added an extra edge to her look.
The most trusted colours to go with are Black and white. That’s what Bhatia decided to go with for her first time at Cannes. Besides, the diamond earrings alongside her carefully combed hair made her sparkle in the sun.
