It is amazing to see the most powerful women from Bollywood owning the red carpet at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival 2019. Earlier on, we have been seeing Aishwarya Rai Bachcnan, Sonam Kapoor, Mallika Sherawat representing our Indian fraternity since years now. It’s only recently that Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut, Hina Khan joined the bandwagon along with Priyanka Chopra who marks her debut at Cannes this year. Definitely a moment that we have all been waiting for….a moment of pride for everyone who admires these ladies for who they are and the confidence with which they conduct themselves.
Indeed, it was one historic moment to watch Priyanka, Deepika, Kangana and Hina Khan walk the Cannes red carpet, one after another last night. Starting with Deepika, the 33-year-old beauty chose to don a custom-made Dundas white ivory dress with a statement bow, plunging neckline, dramatic shoulders and a long trail. Not to mention the sky-high slit which further amped up her look by notches. Acing the reverse cat eye look like a pro, Deepika also styled her hair in a Genie ponytail and accessorised her outfit with blingy diamond jewellery. How many points for DP for looking so flawless?
Coming to the hot new debutante at Cannes 2019 – Priyanka Chopra! What a stunner is she…Looking every bit spectacular in an off-shoulder black and rose gold sequin-studded gown, while Priyanka’s gown was enough to grab eyeballs, her sky-high slit further raised the hotness bar, don’t you think so?
PeeCee then slipped into her second look which was more powerful, if we may say. Wearing a Hondaya’s strapless white jumpsuit with a corset detailing and a chic cape from their FW ’19 collection, let’s just say Priyanka took ‘looks to kill’ quite seriously this time.
Moving on to Kangana Ranaut, decided to do a fusion of ethnic and western in a gold kanjivaram sari complimented with a strapless embellished gold peplum blouse. And to add a little funkiness to this traditional outfit, Kangana slipped her hands into a pair of purple opera gloves. Not everyone else can carry this look but Kangana being her daring self decided to pull it off with much panache and style.
Kangana’s second look was however was rather bold as she switched on to the party mode wearing a sexy black pant suit by Nedo & Nedret Taciroglu Couture. This was for the Grey Goose after party. The queen that she is, kept it extremely edgy and fierce by donning smoky eyes, complimenting her sexy black two piece pant suit with silver details white waist coat with an deep plunging neckline.
Actor Hina Khan proved she is a diva like none other as she made her Cannes debut on Wednesday. The Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor walked the red carpet and totally owned it. Wearing a grey shimmery gown with a modest train, Hina was in her elements as she smiled and waved at the photographers.
