Deepika Padukone In Brandon Maxwell – ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

I was about to draw a line under day 2 of Cannes Film Festival; labeling it one of the most uneventful in the history of the event, until Deepika Padukone hit the ‘Loveless (Nelyubov)’ premiere this evening (May 18).

This is how you bring subtle drama to the red carpet, serving everything you have – and more – in the name of fashion.

Her Brandon Maxwell Fall 2017 gown is supremely elegant with the tailored silhouette adding to the dramatic red-carpet impact which she styled with matching Chloe Gosselin ‘Opia’ sandals.

As I predicted the bold eye makeup continues to be her signature of this festival without looking too heavy or forced.

Ordinarily I would eyeroll the excessive ‘Angelina’ leg, but Deepika is one of the few – aside from Monica Bellucci and Elle Fanning, who are given me anything to get excited about this term.

    Beautiful cut, fabric and color.

    Color is gorgeous but the Fit is really bad, and the high bun too.
    she has looked far better on Indian red carpets.

    Nice color, but this is so flat

    The model wore it better: it’s an action shot granted, but I adore the lines and how that’s reflected in the strappy sandals.

    She looks so gorgeous. Hair, makeup, dress and shoes are all in point. Way to go, Deepika. You killed it at Cannes this year. Can’t wait to see you next year 🙂

    Hooker heels alert! Hooker heels alert!!!! Boring.

    Gorgeous colour on her! She continues to impress.

    even a dress like this is considered best of the day..boy the time really has changed.
    she dose look gorgeous,but the waistline needs to be taken in a few notches to fit her properly.

    Beautiful color. She looks gorgeous – love the makeup and hair and earrings.
    The shoes are somewhat too clunky for this gown but I like that they are green
    And like others, I feel there’s some kind of fit issue at the waist and the slit, something off there too.
    Overall very pretty though.

      I think part of my problem with this is the slit pointing straight towards the crotch area and its more to the front of the body. The runways slit is off to the side and seems to be pointing to the outer thigh area. Sounds weird ya….but its really bugging me. It ‘feels’ wrong.

    Very Ms. Universe-y. And the different hair-colored bun is killing me.

    • charlotte May 19, 2017 at 03:29 #

      I know,right? she could easily wear this to Miss Universe pageant.

  11. glory May 19, 2017 at 01:59 #

    The slit looks awful…I love the color and hair and makeup

  12. JHH May 19, 2017 at 01:14 #

    The only thing I like about this dress on her is the color.

  13. from-chitown May 18, 2017 at 21:57 #

    She looks gorgeous in that color. Its just fabulous on her, I love it. I feel there is some fit issue at the waist, it needed to be more fitted. But I am loving this. At least it stands out as something different.

  14. Shanaya May 18, 2017 at 21:13 #

    She’s beautiful and am so glad she wore more dramatic jewels but the dress is nothing special. After last night was expecting it to be extraordinary this sadly isn’t.

  15. Emily May 18, 2017 at 19:40 #

    She just doesn’t have the face for such a bold eye. This feels like poor man’s Jennifer Lopez styling.

  16. meme May 18, 2017 at 19:06 #

    That’s too much dress. I prefer the runway version.

  17. Caroline May 18, 2017 at 18:56 #

    She looks gorgeous. I love this color on her. Perfect.

  18. Nat39 May 18, 2017 at 18:47 #

    Wow, goddess! Now we are talking, better than the opening. The colour is so smooth and beautiful, the platforms are a bit chunky, but they are needed for elevation. Great outing for her, she looks gorgeous, loving the sexy dramatic eye-makeup too.

  19. Schoolbea May 18, 2017 at 18:38 #

    Something off with the fit around the waist?

    Not a deal breaker, though. She looks absolutely gorgeous! I’m loving her makeup soooo much! And the colour suits her skin colour beautifully.

  20. Chris May 18, 2017 at 18:37 #

    So good! I actually am not really on board with the ‘Angelina’ leg. I feel like it would be a lot better without. I still love the look, though. Much improved from the Marchesa yesterday. I also like her beauty look more today.

  21. Ramsay May 18, 2017 at 18:35 #

    I prefer this on the runway

  22. Leandra May 18, 2017 at 18:31 #

    Wowza !! Unreserved love ! This is SUPERB with capital letters. Finally somebody giving this red carpet the glamour it deserves.
    The extra pictures are very welcome Catherine. I was just about to suggest you include them in some posts. Thanks.

    • Catherine Kallon May 18, 2017 at 18:49 #

      yes, at times I’m just rushing to get them out. will do more in future.

  23. CreoleLady May 18, 2017 at 18:30 #

    Looks like the same dress Rosie H-W wore in blue. Nice repeat.
