Actors Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone made their red carpet appearances on Thursday at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival.
While Deepika’s outfit was all about drama – where she wore a cream dress with a gigantic bow taking most of the attention away from her striking make-up and unique hairdo, for her red carpet debut, Priyanka Chopra shimmered in a bold black and red embellished ensemble.
Deepika, who was at Cannes to represent a cosmetics brand, wore a creation by designer Peter Dundas for the event. The cream gown had a front slit, a plunging neckline, exaggerated sleeves and a bow. Her eye make-up exuded drama with dark reverse winged eyeliner and a sleek and neat high ponytail.
After landing in the city on Thursday, Deepika had posted an Instagram video, sharing: "We have just landed. We have to settle in because we don't have much time. As soon as we get into the hotel, we have to start with hair and make-up and literally a five-minute fitting. Let's go."
Ahead of her Cannes trip, she had asked her fans to help her choose an outfit."Do you think I should wear red on the red carpet? Yes or No," she had posted on her Instagram Story. Clearly, she surprised fans with her choice of outfit.
Meanwhile, Priyanka chose a bold black and red embellished ensemble, a custom creation by Roberto Cavalli. She carried the strapless gown with a thigh-high slit with panache.
The former Miss World took to the red carpet with a smile on her face and folded her hands to the cameras. Her accessories were limited to statement earrings, while her hair was left simple in loose curls.
Priyanka is at the gala for a brand association. Earlier on Thursday, she was seen here in a white ensemble inspired by what the late Lady Diana once wore to the Cannes Film Festival.
Priyanka had made cryptic Instagram posts ahead of her visit to the Cannes Film Festival, suggesting that her outfits may be inspired by fashion icons such as Lady Diana, Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren.
