After a week of Festival de Cannes 2022, there is one thing that we can say with absolute certainty. Next year when Deepika Padukone returns to the French Riviera town, the actress will have a hoard of international fans cheering for her. She might have had both hits and misses in the sartorial department but DP has managed to leave a mark. She already has a global following and fans are going gaga over the actress’s Cannes inning. Just the other day, we read a tweet asking if Deepika is as big a star in India as Aishwarya Rai and Kareena Kapoor and it is safe to say that the answer is “yes.” She is a full-fledged phenomenon who has been making headlines since day 1 of the film festival and her last night’s appearance is no exception. Here’s a lowdown:
For her Cannes red carpet appearance last night, Deepika unleashed full glamm in a custom Louis Vuitton gown that was embellished with metallic feathers and tonal sequins. The strappy black gown featured a plunging neckline, a straight cut silhouette, and a subtle trail. DP’s look was finished with diamond danglers, a dramatic messy hairdo, and intense smokey eyes.
Now, this is an interesting look but we have our reservations about that neckline. Looks like the artisans were in a bit of a hurry at the LV ateliers while creating it. The fit is slightly off, it is not structured enough, and is bringing the entire look down. We aren’t too big on how it translates on the red carpet either.
The trail acts as the saving grace though and is making up for all that the neckline lacks.
Our verdict? This is an average fit at best that has been given a life of its own with DP’s starry persona. Here’s hoping that Louis Vuitton has at least one 10/10 red carpet look in store for the actress.
