Cannes Film Festival 2020: Deepika Padukone to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, our take on the outfits that we could've seen at this year's gala


What a bummer! The 73rd edition of the Cannes Film Festival won't be happening this year. And although we won't get to enjoy our annual dose of sartorial goodness, we have a little something to keep our modish senses satiated. 

While this year's gala stands canceled, we imagine what the divas would wear if they were to walk the red carpet this year. From Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's ethnic touch at the soiree to Kangana Ranaut's edgy style, here's what we think the leading ladies would've opted for:

Deepika Padukone

Deepika is known to keep the sartorial drama flowing. Her vivid and vibrant style is equal parts chic, classy and spunky. From tailored suits to gorgeous gowns, this stunner has worn it all.

For her red carpet appearance, we imagine this beaut doing the strut in this stellar Dylan Parienty number. Matched with complementing makeup, old-Hollywood curls and a statement lip, this look would be one to kill for!

For her other outfit, we believe this sexy Prabal Gurung number would be a good fit. The low-neckline and the cinched belt at the waist make this outfit look edgy, can you picture Deepee wearing this? We totally can! 

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja is undoubtedly one of the OG stunners of the Cannes red carpet. Given her uber-chic OOTD's over the years, we reckon this year would've been nothing but more fashionable!

Given her love for Indian ethnic on the global platform, we think this Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla ensemble would've been a perfect fit for her appearance at the gala. The low-neck and fusion jacket give this outfit a whole vibe and we're digging it!

For another look, we think this futuristic Iris Van Herpen ensemble would be a major hit. Blending-in with her aesthetic sense of balancing accessories and glam with her outfits, we think there's a lot Sonam could do with this look. What are your thoughts?

Priyanka Chopra Jonas

 Priyanka Chopra Jonas made her Cannes debut last year and oh boy, what a stellar debut it was! With oh-so-pretty ball gowns and evening dresses to uber-sexy cocktail dresses, we saw that a lot more! Also, her hubby-dearest Nick Jonas made for the perfect arm-candy at all times and we couldn't help but scream #OTPGoals!

Imagine this: a never-ending red carpet, paps waiting for the diva to arrive and there she is, strutting in this gorgeous yellow Giambattista Valli couture number as the crowd await for a glimpse of her; magical, right? Pulled-back hairdo, wild smokey-eyes and a pair of vintage gloves, oh how we wish we could see this sight!

After her stunning pre-Grammy's outfit, we know for a bold fact that Peecee knows how to work a satin dress! So we thought this Prabal Gurung dress with this extra-af shrug and a dainty bag would be a very cutesy and feminine on her. What do you think of this? 

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana has become a Cannes regular for the past couple of years and her dazzling outfits have been the talk of the town! From the disco-ball jumpsuit to the Victorian-saree, this stunner has always managed to leave us feeling frazzled with her style diaries.

For the first of her many outfits, we think this Galia Lahav dress would be a great match to her aesthetic. A pair of gloves and similar thigh-high boots would be a great look on her. Boots on a delicate dress? Why not, trust Kangs to pull it off!

Like Sonam, Kangana also has a soft corner for Indian designers and makes sure that ateast one of her outfits are curated by an Indian maven. For this year's dose of spunk, we think this Manish Arora ensemble would be a great look on her. Chunky heels, a bob hairdo, chunky rings and a sweetheart pouy; gosh, we would kill to see this beauty pull-off this look!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan



A post shared by AishwaryaRaiBachchan (@aishwaryaraibachchan_arb) on

Make way for the Cannes Queen! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has to be a glamorous veteran at the red carpet and needless to say, she has delivered some of the most stellar looks at the gala! From her golden goddess number to her vivid peacock dress, the diva has made us swoon time-and-again with her opulent outfits!

Aishwarya is known for her larger-than-life outfits that spell out couture in the best way possible. Given this preference, we think this Ivan Avalos ensemble would be a stellar move on the red carpet. Long lusciously-wavy hair, radiant glam and a pink-glossy pout, the Bachchan bahu would've definitely turned a lot of heads at the gala. What do you think? 

(IMAGE SOURCE: @aishwaryaraibachchan_arb , @zuhairmuradofficial)

Picture this, Aishwarya in this red Zuhair Murad number, a side-parted hairdo and a red pout matching her outfit, delicate rings and studs complimenting her look, a fringed-cape slung over her elbows leaving a train in their wake; uff, we wish we could watch this magical moment unfold on the red carpet! Well, fingers crossed! 

Quite a sartorial roller-coaster, innit? What did you think of this?
