Deepika Padukone was honoured for her contribution in the field of mental health at the World Economic Forum on Monday (January 20) in in Cologny-Geneva, Switzerland.
In receiving the Crystal Award, the actress gave a powerful speech at the event, opening up on her battle with depression and anxiety. She talked about how her own struggle encouraged her to work towards spreading awareness on mental health. She is the founder of Live Love Laugh foundation that helps people suffering from depression.
I know a lot of you aren’t fans of these editorial style pictures, but since a. I have had a lot of requests to feature this, b. there was no red carpet, and c. she looks so damn gorgeous, I decided to feature.
The slim-fitting silhouette of her Alex Perry Spring 2020 gown is beautifully articulated with padded shoulders – creating a tailored look that’s countered by the long cape-style train.
This style of dress is oozing plenty of old Hollywood glamour, yet is truly a modern affair.
I adore the earrings, smokey eyes and lacquered and loose hair.
If only we had a red carpet picture, this would’ve been BDOTW worthy.
