Deepika Padukone dominated the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Rocketman’ on Thursday (May 16) in France.
The Indian actress’ appearance at this festival has been greatly anticipated, especially after last year.
I had first seen Deepika in this custom Dundas gown a few hours ago on her Instagram, and I was unsure about it, so I wanted to see it in all its glory on the red carpet.
My feeling hasn’t really changed.
And that is, it’s big for big’s sake.
Perhaps I’m still comparing to last year.
Perhaps my aversion to how crumpled silk taffeta always appears is kicking in.
Or perhaps that oversized black bow is too distracting.
I don’t hate it. This is the kinda drama we need at Cannes.
I’m just not falling head-over-heels in love it with. And I really wanted to.
Hair and beauty-wise, her teamed nailed it, with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Aquazzura sandals completing her look.
