Aditi Rao Hydari’s Style Was The Real Winner At Cannes 2022

Aditi Rao Hydari

As the Cannes Film festival is set to draw its curtains for this year’s edition, it’s highly imperative that we talk about our desi contingent at the Riviera. Celebrities like Aditi Rao Hydari, Deepika Padukone, Hina Khan, Pooja Hegde and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dominated a plentitude of headlines. The jury was out on every look, some heaped on the praises, others delivered scathing commentary (often for the clicks) but totally uncalled for, either way. But what caught our eye, especially on the sartorial ground, is Aditi Rao Hydari. And her pristine styling all thanks to Sanam Ratansi’s groundwork. From saris to gowns and coord-sets, the mélange of looks was equal parts enticing and classic.

Aditi Rao Hydari’s best style moments at Cannes 2022:

Mark Bumgarner’s Side Slit Gown

Red and hot pink concoctions have been ruling the carpet for quite some time now. With an interesting take on the same with the help of a peplum insert, a bateau neckline and a side slit with a long train, this gown’s magic on the carpet was rather sensational.

Avaro Figlio’s Jumpsuit With Exaggerated Sleeves

This Avaro Figlio piece is a top contender in the entire entourage of looks given the welcome addition of the exaggerated sleeves secured with a buckle at the centre. The cutout adds character to the outfit and the slick top bun styling brings it together.

Mugler’s Sculpted LBD

Always a pleasure to spot a good Mugler piece. And this one’s a captivating take on the regular LBDs but with an asymmetric cut and structure to it. Going down the stockings route was a very wise decision. Love the jewels by Mamour Paris!

Natan Couture’s Work Chic

Can we talk about the belt please? Immaculate. Aditi paired this loose fitted casual shirt with high-waisted and slightly flared trousers. Spotlight on the chunky, square shaped studs by Radhika Agrawal Jewels. Excellent accessorising.

Sabyasachi’s Ivory Organza Sari

Sabya and ivory. Need I say more? This hand dyed and embroidered saree was graceful and coupled with the emerald and diamond choker made for quite the look. If they had a ball there, there’s no doubt she’d be named the diamond of the season.

Maison Valentino’s Romper

Seen strutting the streets of the country of l’amour, this head to toe Valentino look is the definition of relaxed leisure but make it bougie. Emphasis on the chunky red platform heels- quite the pair!

Anna Kiki’s Coord Set

An unusual offering from a Bollywood celebrity, but a fascinating one nonetheless. This coord-set and Mamour Cleopatra earrings are reminiscent of the 70s and 80s with its print detail and silhouette construction.

Sabyasachi’s Tulle Portrait Gown

Another Sabyasachi hit but this time in black with their signature Bengal Tiger Belt. The jewels too, are by Sabya, but the bindi addition takes all the laurels. Minor effort, major impact.
