Everything Deepika Padukone got up to at Cannes

Bright eyes and brighter sun

By ELLE team  May 18th, 2017

Knowing that the eyes of nearly every single person in the country are on you can make your choices exhausting at times. But the crisp sunshine of the French Riviera helps make things just a little more bearable. We assume that’s what Deepika Padukone was thinking while getting some TLC at the beach, even as L’Oréal Paris’ make-up director Val Garland served a platter of interesting eye make-up looks: Think red florals paired with graphic aqua eyes. 

After convincing the world that she can pass off as the dancing lady in red emoji at the L’Oréal Paris Beach Studio, the actress changed into a Galvan London dress paired with a top knot for press interactions. She then proceeded to don her hotly anticipated outfit for the evening- a deep wine concoction by Marchesa Notte, paired with Jimmy Choo heels and clutch and De Grisogono jewellery.

Day 2 had her twinning with the sunny French riverside in a canary yellow Solace London midi and floral Eliz and James earrings. (If you aren’t sure which hue works for your skin tone, here’s our handy guide.)

 The dizzying merry-go-round of outfit changes continued with Deepika quickly slipping into a Balenciaga shift dress and the most colourful Louboutins that money can buy. We’d stop here to catch a breath, but Deepika almost immediately took to her second red carpet look, so we’ll carry on too.

Head-to-toe colour made the cut for her second stint on the red carpet, with a sweeping Brandon Maxwell gown doing the honours. Ditching the standard black smoky eye, Val Garland went in for the kill with dramatic emerald eyes, accompanied with a De Grisogono earcuff and Chloe Gosselin heels.

Bella Hadid and Uma Thurman rule the best dressed list at Cannes 2017

Old school Hollywood glamour reigned supreme at the French Riviera as Bella Hadid, Uma Thurman and more trotted out the lushest satin gowns and retro waves that money can buy. Check out all the A-listers who got it right on day 1 of the Cannes Film Festival.

Emily Ratajkowski

And Bella wasn't the only on the red carpet with a soft spot for Bulgari trinkets and risqué slits: Gone Girl star Emily Ratajkowski inadvertently ended up twinning with her in a slinky satin pick from Twin Set by Simona Barbieri.

Uma Thurman

As the presiding juror, Uma rose to the occasion by channelling old school Parisian glamour in a dusky pink Atelier Versace gown.

Elle Fanning

Florals for summer? Elle Fanning will do you one better. The 19-year-old took her All-American aesthetic to the Cannes red carpet in a bespoke Vivienne Westwood gown featuring a handpainted unicorn on the train. 

Jessica Chastain

She was joined in the best dressed club by fellow jury member Jessica Chastain who played up her ravishing red mane in a strapless Alexander McQueen gown. 

Bella Hadid

Another day, another red carpet hit: Bella Hadid was the picture of vintage glam in a strapless Alexandre Vauthier gown with a slit up to there. Everyone, however, only really had eyes for her showstopper Bulgari necklcae featuring a 180-carat sapphire. Go home everyone, already.
