Sonam redefined how International media perceived Indian actresses and their fashion on the red carpet with her debut in 2022. She picked a Jean Paul Gaultier gown in white and received a fabulous response from fashion critics. Sonam has been slaying on the red carpet since then and it was only getting better with each passing year.
Deepika made it to Cannes in 2010 and Someone who really had a makeover was her. She wore a sari, which wasn’t something that struck a chord among the style mavens. But the way Padukone has transformed herself in the style department now is commendable.
It was in 2014 that Vidya Balan attended the Film Festival as a jury. It seemed as if she was there to promote her estranged friend Sabyasachi because she only wore his garments on the red carpet. However, she received a lukewarm response for her style choices that year and had a major fallout with Sabyasachi post that. The spat was so ugly that she doesn’t wear clothes from Sabyasachi to date.
Mallika Sherawat has marked her attendance at the Film Festival every year, without fail. She made her Cannes debut in 2005 and her controversial fashion choices made news.
