Indian Ethnic Flavour Spotted at the Cannes Red Carpet Over the Years


Besides the French Rivera and serene landscape view, our celebrities, however, modern and fashionable, always carried a tint of Indian-ness by way of their dressing, styling, or just being themselves. An array of beautiful bold and substantial women are making us go bonkers as they sashay in confidence wearing the most alluring Indian ethnic couture. From dazzling silk sarees to experimental ethnic, anarkali suits and fishtail lehengas, Red Carpet at Cannes Film Festival has seen it all. Here, we present to you some of the gorgeous looks of our pretty ladies.

Aishwarya Rai

The lady who stole millions of hearts looked nothing less than a dream every time Aish made a Red-Carpet appearance. However, her string of style backfired her sometimes and brought her some criticism, yet Aishwarya never lowered her spirits.

Draped in gold sequin work sheer net saree in 2010, she dropped our jaws. In 2014, she chose to wear a white net saree with a beautiful black border, she proved us Bollywood mothers are downright gorgeous?

Sonam Kapoor

The epitome of experimental and classy couture, Sonam is a know-it-all when it comes to anything about fashion. Garnering much attention at the Red Carpet, she never failed to stand strong and support her roots and culture.

Her go-to sarees always complemented her edgy, eclectic style. We simply loved her sheer net beige saree look with dhoti pants and caplet blouse.

Vidya Balan

Grace and effervescence with oodles of wit and charm, that’s what justifies Vidya’s personal style statement too. Going classic in designer couture, she made a Red-Carpet appearance to meet her French fans and she chose to go all-Indian for the event.

Draped in a red saree with statement ranihaar and full sleeve blouse, she was all that retro Indian glamour with a touch of English taste. Her red Anarkali suit sans makeup and dainty hair brought a heap of compliments too.

Deepika Padukone

When it comes to effortless fashion and scintillating style statement, Deepika slays it so well.

She gave her spin to the evergreen saree by draping it low waist and flaunting her hourglass figure. This dusky beauty wore a white and gold embellished saree, we were blown.

Nandita Das

Artists like this very talented and beautiful dusky Indian lady Nandita Das made her appearance at the Red Carpet in a glorious Kanjivaram silk saree.

The rich hues painting the saree with shades of violet and red made her stand out. Simply sophisticated is what truly describes her style, we are in love with her infectious persona.

Richa Chadha

Richa went on to make her debut appearance at the Red Carpet, Cannes Film Festival to promote her movie Masan.

She looked like an Indian royalty in a floral mint sea green saree with a shimmer blouse. Loose messy bun and au natural look tuned heads.
