For her sec­ond red­car­pet walk at the on­go­ing Cannes Film Fes­ti­val, ac­tor Deepika Padukone (above) de­cided to have some fun.

Dressed in a Gre­cian, cus­tom-made dress by de­signer Bran­don Maxwell, she topped the look with a high-set bun, neu­tral lips and dra­matic jewel-toned eyes. Cannes is no Met Gala, so the sar­to­rial and beauty looks usu­ally fall un­der the ‘safe’ bracket. But, like Aish­warya Rai Bachchan’s pur­ple lips last year, Dippy de­cided to make some makeup noise with her bold eyes.

Beauty ex­perts feel that Deepika pulled it off. “It’s a look done to death for fash­ion shows — a pulled­out shadow in emer­ald green. But it’s a bold thing for the red car­pet and Deepika is bold enough to carry it with aplomb,” says beauty ex­pert Am­bika Pil­lai.

Makeup artist Vidya Tikari says, “Rather than a smokey eye, I’d call it an out-swept ex­ten­sion. For me, the look works. It’s very doable.”
