Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone made a stylish entry in a dark purple Marchesa Fall 2017 gown at what is undoubtedly one of the world’s most glamourous and talked about red carpet events.
“It’s a little naughty, this dress because even though you are showing nothing, you are showing everything,” says Elizabeth Saltzman who is styling Deepika Padukone at Cannes 2017.
“We put this dress on hold the minute the Marchesa fashion show was over. The colours are extraordinary, not just the rich plum but also the green. The morning after the Met Ball, Georgina Rose Chapman, Deepika Padukone and I did a quick fitting. It has a wow factor that is important for Cannes. The dress is not too much, it’s not too little, it’s not overpowering, she can get in and out of the car, she can have fun in it, she is so excited to be here.”
Deepika, 31, made her Cannes debut as L’Oreal ambassador looking ravishing on the red carpet on Wednesday. Needless to say, the sexy siren looked every bit the diva she is. She teamed her stunning outfit with Jimmy Choo heels and bag and De Grisogono jewels. Her on point makeup and hair open in soft waves with center parting only accentuated her look.
