The curtains are finally down for Cannes 2018 (atleast here in India for all us Bollywood fans) The prestigious film festival which is held annually in Cannes, France. The fest previews new films of all genres, including documentaries from all around the World. Over the years we have had many Bollywood celebrities grace the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. This year however, we had our most stunning Bollywood Queens attend this prestigious film festival. We had Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Cannes veteran Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walk the red carpet. It was one hell of a red carpet ride with the beauties serving us the right amount of style, drama and lots of on-point fashion. With the film festival coming to an end and our B’town celebrities having graced the red carpet, this leads us to the biggest fashion faceoff of this year. So let’s get started.


Day 1



Deepika Padukone

This is Deepika's second outing at Cannes as the brand ambassador for a cosmetic giant. Her looks last year received a mixed bag of reactions, so Deepika played it safe this year by wearing a sheer embroidered gown from Zuhair Murad's Spring 2018 Bridal collection. By safe we definitely don't mean that it lacked a punch. Cannes red carpets are all about drama and glamour and Deepika served the same in her cape detail gown. The fit was impeccable on her and she wore the plunging neck gown with grace. Wearing her hair her cascading curls, she rounded her look out with a selection of jewels from Lorraine Schwartz and a glossy lip. The look may not be clutter breaking or novel, but she did wear it effortlessly.


Kangana Ranaut

Kangana, made her Cannes debut this year. The actress walked the carpet as a brand ambassador for a liquor brand.She wore a dull grey sheer embellished gown from Zuhair Murad's Fall 2017 collection. The sleeveless gown was sheer and a tulle embroidered train. What captivated us about her look was her the styling. While the gown was nothing new to write about, we love how she kept the make up fresh and minimal, wore her curls up and rounded her look out with no jewellery.


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Another year, another red carpet and another stunning Michael Cinco gown worn by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on the Cannes red carpet. Aishwarya wore a stunning butterfly inspired, colourful sleeveless gown featuring a long embroidered and embellished train and a plunging neckline. Sleek hair, purple eye makeup and matching pair of earrings rounded her look out. Her last year's look was iconic, so we had our doubts if Aishwarya would be able to replicate the same this year and she did manage to serve us good drama in this long train gown.


Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor was back on the Cannes red carpet just days after her wedding to Anand Ahuja. She's one to always bring something new and fun to the red carpet and she didn't disappoint. Dolled up in a lehenga custom made by her designer friends Ralph and Russo, she looked gorgeous. The ivory crop top and voluminous skirt with a train had a drape detail on one sleeve that mimicked a dupatta. The look was styled with dainty earrings from Chopard and she wore her hair in a braid decorated with a 'jada choti' by Amrapali. We love it when celebs brings traditional looks on international carpets and we love that Sonam wore this outfit just after her wedding, because even the henna (Mehendi) became a part of the look. The only thing that we take a reservation against is that drape detail. We wish it was a normal dupatta.


Day 2



Deepika Padukone

Finally! The moment we all have been waiting for! Deepika Padukone served us a big time dramatic look while at the Cannes red carpet. She wore a pink ruffled gown with dramatic sleeves and a matching train from Ashi Studio’s latest collection. Matching heels, hair tied up in a bun and smokey eyes rounded her look out. We love how she took a big risk and pulled it off so effortlessly. She looked like an angel!


Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut walked down the red carpet while at Cannes. She wore another retro inspired look in an embroidered cat suit from Nedo by Nedret Taciroglu featuring a plunging neckline. A matching clutch, her natural curls and minimal makeup rounded her look out. We love that she wore her natural curls, but the whole look felt a little too disco!


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her second red carpet appearance at Cannes. She wore a powder blue sequined glitter strapless dress from Rami Kadi with a matching embroidered train. Hair tied up in a structural bun and a pink lip rounded her look out. After looking at her fab look from yesterday, this look does feel a little underwhelming in comparison, but there's no denying she looked stunning.


Sonam Kapoor

After doing Indian traditional on her day 1 of Cannes, Sonam Kapoor wore another attention grabbing look on the red carpet. She glided down the red carpet wearing a nude gown by Vera Wang. Her simple gown with a corset bodice and tulle skirt had a floor sweeping train in an unexpected yellow hue. The look was styled with a red lip and matching yellow eye make up and she rounded her look out with hair worn in a low bun. There's no denying that the look was grand, pretty and Cannes ready, however the color wasn't our favorite. We kinda wish the entire gown was yellow.


Our vote hands down goes to the stunning Deepika Padukone for finally taking a risk and pulling it off with so much poise and grace. We loved how there was maddening amount of drama but was balanced out with just the right amount of makeup. After a slightly dull run at Cannes 2018, Deepika Padukone finally arrived and how!

Deepika rocked
summing up all the outfits she was the best to look at

Ash looks so good in her dresses. She is so beautiful and carries herself with grace.


Sonam was by far more fashion forward. Her ralph russo lehenga with indian touch was stunning and she looked every bit the indian bride. and vera wang gown is as stylish as it can get!!.

all of them are ugly and this years its no good for any of them, ash too much make up, deepika no looks and red carpet presence, sonam dresses are boring and kanagana i have no clue wht was she doing there

Deepika tries hard after the party is over to prove she is scene stealer. No aunty you are not!

Ash is in a league of her own. Kangana owned the red carpet with her edgy and original debut. DP looked pathetic. Sonam proved that she needs to be replaced by the brand by maybe Alia.

That did seem a little too....Ranveer-like. ;)



DP and her sticking tongue is a big Nayyyyyyy.

sonam, ash, deepika , in this order!

you are right Kangana killed fashion this year, deepika gets a B.

People do know that even though you may like one look better than the others, doesn't mean you have to say bad things about the rest. I think they all looked great with their respective looks.

Aishwarya followed by Kangana and Deepika and then Sonam.. But all of them looked pretty and stylish..

Aishwarya as she brings her effortless grace to the red carpet and the Michael Cinco gown blew my mind. Kangna did something different, but Sonam and DP were a big nay.

Deepika was the best in all looks. Followed by Kangana. K's special one was the disco outfit...even then D had that gorgeous pink that she rocked...


"Aishwarya looked magnificent." ...See how I fixed that for you? :)

My winners
Day 1 : 1. Ash ; 2. Kangana (coz her makeup even though experimental made her look pale)/Deepika (even though she her look was well put together, there's something missing. maybe she looks tired. The spark was missing)
Day 2 : 1. Kangana ; Day 2 : Deepika

Overall Cannes Red carpet winner : 1. Kangana (every look was different & she looked amazing) 2. Deepika (with an amazing body like hers, she needs to experiment more)

Kangana all the way! DP is sour with her disaster and she is planting these articles.

That Michael Cino gown end of story.

My favourites Day 1: Aishwarya in Michael Cinco purple,red & blue mermaid style butterfly gown & Sonam in Off-white Ralph & Russo lehenga with heavily embroidered thread work, cape sleeve & hair jewellery nagi jadai. Day 2: Deepika in Fuschia pink ruffled origami gown with a bun & & Aishwarya in icy blue Rami Kadi gown embellished with silver swarovski crystals & pleated folds with long trail & an avante garde hairstyle. I liked Kangana's retro look in black Sabyasachi saree.She looked stylish. Each one of them have their own intrinsic way to depict fashion. If I had to describe : Kangana-Impressive on debut Deepika-Bold & Stylish Aishwarya-She's Worth It & Sonam-India's Charming Princess.

Deepika and Kangana killed it this year. Aishwarya looked horrendous and Sonam looked drab, unfit and boring in all her outfits - very unlike the fashionista she claims to be.

Sonam & Kangana Slayed it with some style & glamour
Deepika tried & tried asusual! She looked nice in Pink gown though
Aish was okay


Deepika Hands down!!! Even if you don't like her you gotta give it to her! She looked amazing in everything she wore! Kangana is my second choice ! 3rd Sonam and 4th Aish

Deepika, Sonam and Mahira slayed my damn life!! Absolutely killed it!

Amazing Aishwarya! Loved her again this year. The Aish/Cinco combo is classic. I prefer timeless over trendy. Deepika & Kangana get my thumbs-up. Sonam....smh.

Aishwarya's day 1 wins hands down. Though Deepika had two stunning looks. Kangana's day 1 is good but day 2 isn't exactly red carpet. RCFA dissed that look major. Sonam's a miss for both days.
