  • Deepika Padukone’s traditional look wins over Ash’s western one at Cannes

    Aishwarya Rai has been attending the Cannes film festival since 2002 as the global face of L`Oreal but drew critical applauds only last year when she wore a white off-shoulder Roberto Cavalli. This year, though her outfit was impressive but her puffy hairdo got some her some negative compliments as well.

    The actress who won the hearts of millions this year with her very first red carpet appearance at the Cannes International Film Festival was the 24-year-old Deepika Padukone who looked stunningly elegant in her off white, slightly embroidered saree with touches of gold, with a broad hand cuff, Kundan earrings and a stone encrusted clutch. Deepika is attending the event as the face of liquor brand Chivas Regal.

    Take a look at what various designers have to say about her traditional look as compared to Ash’s western outfit:

    “She was wearing a saree and I think that`s an appropriate outfit for any Indian diva walking an international platform. It was a nice off-white saree with a sexy blouse, making the look exude a good amount of glitz and glamour,” said designer Charu Parashar.

    Designer Nida Mahmood said: “Deepika is a beautiful woman and was looking stunning in a saree. It`s a very nice outfit that brings out the real form of a woman. It`s sensual and elegant and if you can carry it well it makes you look awesome.”

    Rohit Bal, who designed Deepika`s look for the event, had said: “As a designer, who has been observing fashion since the last 25 years, I think the only one super star at this time at Cannes is going to be Deepika Padukone. There`s nobody better than Deepika to break the rules and it`s going to attract a lot of attention.”

    Designer Kapil and Monika say, “Aishwarya Rai’s beautiful gown’s colour matched her skin tone, but the hair do was a turn off. She’s got a fuller face and a high hairdo highlighted its roundness. The neatness of the hairstyle is also questionable.” Designer Reynu Tandon also feels her hairstyle is dated but Ash looked good overall, “Her hair isn’t stylised as per 2010 trends but it is suiting her face,” says the designer.

    “Deepika gets thumbs up as she knows what looks good on her. Keeping it traditional is a very good idea. When it comes to international events like Cannes, it is always safe to keep away from experiments and sari has a modern yet traditional charm to it,” says Ekta Bhardwaj, creative writer with a fashion magazine.

    Whereas designers Kapil and Monica feel, “Deepika’s make-up for Cannes was extremely garish making her look a tone darker than her actual complexion, her sari had no element of glam, and was wrongly accessorised with gold jewellery.”
