Deepika Padukone in a Black and Gold Sequin Sabyasachi Saree
Deepika looked stunning in another Sabyasachi couture saree in black and gold sequins. Her vintage outfit was much praised since it projected a luxurious vibe and was appropriate for the opening event, which Deepika attended as a jury member. The design emphasized the vast grandeur of Indian arts and cultural crafts. The whole saree was covered in hand-embroidered and block-printed stripes that looked stunning against the gold and black colour scheme.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a Gaura Gupta blush-pink gown
The splendour designed by Indian designer Gaura Gupta for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be remembered from this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
This architectural aesthetic, symbolic of birth and optimism, was inspired by the notion of “The Venus.” Her gown had the intricate craftsmanship that Gaurav Gupta designs are known for. The gown, which was in a calming blush pink colour, featured a mermaid-like design and a towering shell-shaped structure on the back, which contributed to the Venus-inspired plot. The gown was further embellished with magnificent sequins and beads, as well as a dramatic floor-sweeping trail. She chose stud ear-cuffs, winged liner, glossy pink lips, and a flush of colour for her cheekbones to complement her sculpted gown.
