Deepika Padukone In Ashi Studio Couture – ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv) Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Ash Is The Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv)’ , was immediately shut down when Deepika Padukone stepped onto it.

I know many of you were fatigued by her look yesterday, but if this doesn’t shake you to your very core, I don’t know what will.

The Bollywood beauty dared to do what so few do at Cannes these days…take a risk.

We wanted drama. And here it is. Radiant in Ashi Studio Spring 2018 Couture.

Those of you who hate mullet dresses will have a hard time not loving this one, such is the sculptural elegance and powerful nature of this gown; which starts with the magnetic hue and ends with the punk-inspired styling of this look.

Go big or go home finally found its meaning again at Cannes.

Aquazzura ‘Simple Irresistable’ pumps in exotic pink plus Lorraine Schwartz jewels completed her look.

    Divine Deepika!

  2. Kaya May 13, 2018 at 11:17 #

    Love this! Deepika’s giving us sexy flamingo realness hehe. I love drama, and this is drama!!

  3. Malina May 13, 2018 at 10:26 #

    Deepika’s look is my favorite at Cannes so far. It’s so fun and dramatic Most ladies have made me bored with their safe choices (including Deepika’s first look ironically). But this is amazing. So bold and so striking!

  4. Pheephee May 13, 2018 at 07:08 #

    Major fun dramatic look. Always love that! Always looking for Cannes drama and intensity and this ticks the boxes.
    Hate the shoes but overall this is what Im looking for and I cherish it.

  5. Piya May 13, 2018 at 01:44 #

    Jaw on the floor!! She went big and it worked.

  6. Karen May 12, 2018 at 23:00 #

    Way over the top, so it took guts to wear it but isn’t this festival really more about a parade o exaggerated dresses than the movies? So it works well on this red carpet.

  7. Mary May 12, 2018 at 21:19 #

    Garish and borline costume flamingo. The eye makeup is also not flattering. Overall a mess.

    Best dressed of the festival so far. This is what Cannes is all about – tons of drama and Deepika delivered plenty of it with this look. Now let’s see what will bring to the table Cannes Queen Aishwarya…

  9. Leandra May 12, 2018 at 13:57 #

    This is drama in every possible sense. Colour, material, structure, volume and craftsmanship.
    It’s like an explosion of colour on a white canvas, like the very first brush stroke of an Obra Maestra. This goes for my BDOTY list.

  10. Kiwi May 12, 2018 at 13:42 #

    Yessssss… finally, she slayed it!

  11. Jenni May 12, 2018 at 12:33 #

    Gorgeous, fierce and powerful. Didn’t know she could go all out like this and serve!

  12. Maria F. May 12, 2018 at 12:16 #

    I think the modification of a short mini skirt instead of the draping as in the look book hurt the look. Suddenly it looks more like a robe she wore over a neglige than the interesting architectural construction of the picture on the left.

    Great colour though and she wears it with a lot of confidence.

  13. Gareth May 12, 2018 at 10:31 #

    All eyes were on her at Cannes. And I can see why. Loving the extravagance. She was too safe yesterday in my opinion

  14. james May 12, 2018 at 09:55 #

    It lacks class and elegance. And the styling is off. But bravo to her for taking risks even if it didn’t pay off for me.

  15. Alina May 12, 2018 at 09:46 #

    I appreciate it, but I don’t love it.

  16. Julie May 12, 2018 at 09:16 #

    Yes, someone came through with a fierce avant garde look. A hundred times yes, Deepika!

  17. Ramsay May 12, 2018 at 08:44 #

    I agree with the “go big and go home” description here

    Though for this dress it’s “go home” for me

  18. Miss H May 12, 2018 at 08:24 #

    YAS! Love this!

  19. Amy May 12, 2018 at 07:30 #

    Y’all were complaining yesterday that she played it too safe and she was too boring and now some of you are saying that it’s too dramatic?? *insert confusedwoman.gif*

    I for one loved this. I think she looks fierce, powerful and stylish. And she is OWNing that dress.

  20. Liana May 12, 2018 at 07:24 #

    Love the look. Love that Deepika took a risk this time. This is what avante garde is all about! My fave look for Day 2!

    • Liana May 12, 2018 at 07:27 #

      My bad, that was meant to say Day 3

  21. Giras May 12, 2018 at 07:20 #

    I’m not sure how to put it; it brings drama and tackiness at the same time. I think I just disliked the colour here, plus the shoes game doesn’t add much.

    I am here for the drama. Just like last year, Deepika went too safe on Day 1, then came out with a smashing look on Day 2. This is everything I want in a Cannes look. BIG. BOLD. AND BEAUTIFUL. I like the eye makeup too and the jewelry. She was definitely my best dressed on Day 2. And dare I say, BDOTY contender?

  23. Mimi May 12, 2018 at 01:53 #

    The makeup is awful, I really like this, but I think the dress part needed to be full length and this would have been STUNNING

  24. RT May 12, 2018 at 01:46 #

    Loved that Deepika took risk. Way better than yesterday’s gown. My favourite for Day 3.

  25. ana May 12, 2018 at 01:35 #

    My jaw dropped! BDOTY worthy!

  26. quimby May 12, 2018 at 00:52 #

    YES! I love the drama and the architecture, the contrasting earrings are perfect, and the back of the dress is STUNNING.

    She did bring drama,I’ll give her that,but the dress overwhelmed her.
    I’ll pass

  28. Fee May 12, 2018 at 00:20 #

    It veers a little too far past the dramatic and into the comical for my liking.

    • charlotte May 12, 2018 at 00:46 #

      exactly!

  29. Bella May 12, 2018 at 00:06 #

    Well, what do we expect? This is Cannes film festival, it’s art, drama, theaters, and more all in one. If this gown was created to be clothed, this is the only time that it’s totally acceptable besides the MET gala. At least it’s not grotesque. I applause her flamboyant.

  30. Nat39 May 12, 2018 at 00:01 #

    This instantly brought memories of Araya’s pink Zuhair Murad moment in Cannes last year, but the structural drama of this one is far beyond. Wish the shoes were a bit different (not just plain pump design) but this is a showstopping moment worthy of Cannes. Major kudos to Deepika!

  31. pinksugar May 11, 2018 at 23:57 #

    This is what Cannes is all about. This.is.everything.

  32. Viral Vora May 11, 2018 at 23:56 #

    the colour and the ruffles gave me Arya Hargate Cannes 2017 – Zuhair Murad vibes. she sure looks like she is having fun and it is a bold look and a welcome one since her snooze fest bridal gown from yesterday – I am not blown away yet but a definite improvement!

  33. JWM May 11, 2018 at 23:46 #

    Quite tacky. Cannes doesn’t need this trying-too-hard big thing. We need someone like Cate or Bingbing provide the truly red carpet spirit.

    The fit is terrible, completely swallowed in fabric. She’s just not a fashion girl. She’s doing nothing for this dress.

  35. Pratyush May 11, 2018 at 22:58 #

    this look is everything Cannes fashion is about.
    high risk (mullet) and high drama!
    she’s finally stepped up to her potential.
    this is that rare time in fashion when the right person, the right fashion statement and the right attitude meet!!

  36. Chris May 11, 2018 at 22:57 #

    It’s surely neither chic nor sophisticated, but I’m here for the drama of it.

  37. NZ May 11, 2018 at 22:56 #

    I live for moments when risks like this pay off. The make up is spot on as well, it matches the

    the dramatic hue of the dress.

    I wouldn’t put this on BDOTY list tho it’s gonna seem a bit too much next to other looks but it’s

    perfect for Cannes.

  38. Lily May 11, 2018 at 22:54 #

    It kind of looks a bit clownish. Especially when you add in the pics out there of her sticking her tongue out on the red carpet.

    • Arwa May 11, 2018 at 23:38 #

      Weird comment, never thought sticking one’s tongue out is synonymous with clowns?!!

  39. brat May 11, 2018 at 22:51 #

    Praya is my fav of the night but I will give Deepika her due. She is serving us high drama, I love her beauty and the jewels.

  40. Dea May 11, 2018 at 22:42 #

    It’s dramatic but I don’t find it sophisticated. There’s something garish about the sleeves and the color, looks like an expensive clown.

  41. Hermoine May 11, 2018 at 22:40 #

    Finally!!! The shoes are wrong but the dress drama is finally here!
    One more boring sheet was gonna send me over the edge!

  42. Vizual Ninja May 11, 2018 at 22:30 #

    I live for the drama! She carries this off with such aplomb. Finally feels like Cannes has officially started

  43. Siddharth May 11, 2018 at 22:30 #

    It was giving more of Ralph and Russo feel. But she looks stunning. She is back.SLAY!!

  44. DEDEL May 11, 2018 at 22:27 #

    She went big but I didn’t like it. I loved the color though

    • JHH May 11, 2018 at 22:37 #

      +1. This is just a lot of fabric IMO and not really a great dress.

    YESSSSS MAMA!!! She came. She conquered!!

  47. fromchi-town May 11, 2018 at 22:23 #

    This is the epitome of “Go big or go home!” My jaw is dropped and is sweeping the floor. She looks fierce and is slaying. This goes straight to the top of my BDOTY. This is what Cannes is all about.

  48. Kimma May 11, 2018 at 22:22 #

    Captivating! It would only work at Cannes tbh but it definitely works here!
