How to recreate Deepika Padukone’s denim-on-denim travel look

Deepika Padukone touched down in the French Riviera to walk the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival as one of L’Oreal Paris’ ambassadors, yesterday. Since then, she’s served up a total of four impossibly chic looks, including a stunning black and white Dundas gown that she accessorised with lots of bling and a sleek, sky-high ponytail. While those looks are reserved for the red carpet, we’re still crushing on her first effortlessly glam airport ‘look’.

Swipe through for a complete breakdown of this denim-on-denim ensemble, on a budget:
