If the fashion pundits had predicted a certain style for Deepika Padukone, then tonight’s red carpet appearance at the Cannes International Film Festival 2018 proves them all wrong! Gone is the demure, coy and shy girl! Saying a sassy hello, Deepika Padukone has left us to pick up our dropped jaws with her ridiculously edgy avatar oozing high-octane glamour. As the newest face of the cosmetic giant, L’Oreal, Deepika was the cynosure of all the fashion conscious eyes. While her recent appearances on the global platform have been lukewarm, Deepika threw us a curveball that would be long remembered! While sticking to classics has always been her style play, Deepika joined the fashion fervour of the French Riviera, experimenting to the hilt and how! The 32-year-old Padmaavat actress sauntered in with her signature chutzpah on the red carpet sending the shutterbugs in a frenzy to capture the perfect shot – a scene straight out of a movie. The diva was a vision to behold in a white Zuhair Murad gown that spelt a subdued drama, elegance and sophistication. This look instantly made us wonder if Deepika Padukone could look any better than this on her D-day! Ahem, we fervently hope Ranveer Singh reads this! Deepika was styled by her go-to fashion stylist Shaleena Nathani, her glam squad featured makeup artist Sandhya Shekar and hairstylist Gabriel Georgiou.
Raking up a fashionable storm with ace fashion stylist and entourage of beauty experts at the helm of affairs, we cannot help but marvel how Deepika created a strong statement alongside industry stalwarts before leaving for the red carpet. Here is a closer look at her #OOTN.
