Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone stuns with her red carpet appearance at the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone let her hair loose – literally – as she stepped out in a jewel-toned maroon creation by Marchesa Notte for her red carpet appearance at the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.

She walked before the screening of French director Arnaud Desplechin’s Les Fantomes d’Ismael.
Deepika, one of the most successful actresses in Bollywood currently, is representing global cosmetic giant L’Oreal Paris at the film jamboree for the first time. She also mingled with the brand’s co-ambassadors Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon and Elle Fanning before leaving for the red carpet.
With her tresses left loose, she looked exquisite as she exuded confidence and élan in her one-shoulder floor-sweeping dress. The intricate embroidery lent a traditional touch to the ensemble, while the layering in tulle gave her a sensual look.

She teamed it up with Jimmy Choo heels and De Grisogono jewellery — danglers in her ears and a cocktail ring which stood out. Adding a dash of edgy glamour to her look, Deepika sported a bold Plum Blossom lip colour and her eyes were done up with eyeliner and mascara.
Deepika, who has an impressive filmography in Indian cinema with titles like Bajirao Mastani and Piku, won her claim to fame in the international world with xXx: Return of Xander Cage earlier this year.

Ahead of her Cannes outing, Deepika told IANS: “What is the red carpet without having fun? I know there is a lot of focus on the clothes, the hair and the make-up, but from all of that, I think the most important thing is that everyone who walks that red carpet must have fun with all of that and that experience.”
That’s what she seems to be doing from snapshots that have emerged from the fest.

Earlier in the day, the actress was seen chilling at a beach in a red dress, and later she sported a Galvan London ensemble and Louboutin shoes with jewellery by Messika, for a photocall.
She took to Instagram to share a shot with the azure blue waters of the French Riveira in the backdrop.
“Taking it all in… Cannes 2017,” she said in her caption.

Deepika will make yet another appearance at the gala on Thursday.
Later in the week, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor will also make it to the red carpet.
Also in Cannes is actor Jayam Ravi, who says his visit to the prestigious festival is a dream come true. His upcoming multi-lingual historic film Sanghamitra will be launched at the festival, which runs until May 28. The title of Sanghamitra, which will be directed by Sundar C, will be unveiled at the festival.

The makers had said in a statement that the film will be made in two parts and will also star Arya and Shruti Haasan.
To be bankrolled by Sri Thenandal Films, the project will be made in Tamil, Telugu and will be dubbed in Hindi.
