Deepika Padukone is bringing the edge to the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Like many stars who were dressed to impress, the Bollywood superstar turned heads when she strutted up the red carpet steps at the French Riviera on May 19.
Deepika came to slay in a Louis Vuitton ensemble featuring a peplum top and a big flowy skirt. She also wore a delicate diamond necklace and tied her hair in a stylish ponytail. Deepika attended the screening of the 2022 period drama ‘Armageddon Time’.
For the opening ceremony, Deepika, who is also a part of the Cannes jury this year, chose a black and gold shimmery saree by ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
Deepika had her hair tied in a bun and accessorised it with a golden hairband. The actress opted for a dramatic look with kohl-rimmed eyes, nude lips, and contoured cheeks.
Deepika is a part of a nine-member jury that will pick the winners of this year’s Palme d’Or honours at a gala ceremony in Cannes on May 28. The other jury members include actor-filmmaker Rebecca Hall, Noomi Rapace, and Italian actor-director Jasmine Trinca, as well as directors Asghar Farhadi, Ladj Ly, Jeff Nichols, and Joachim Trier.
For years, Deepika had been representing make-up giant L’Oreal at the film festival. Deepika has previously worn designers such as Prabal Gurung, Marchesa, Peter Dundas, Giambattista Valli, and Ashi Studio.
Deepika Padukone will next be seen in Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan. The actress also has Hrithik Roshan-starrer Fighter and the Indian adaptation of The Intern alongside Amitabh Bachchan in the pipeline. Besides these, Deepika will feature in Nag Ashwin’s Project K with Big B and Prabhas.
