Trends, starry style at Cannes

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - HT City | Lifestyle - Snigdha Ahuja

The Cannes Film Fes­ti­val is un­der­way at the pic­turesque French Riviera, and along with the stun­ning lo­ca­tion, the glo­ri­ous gowns, cou­pled with pa­parazzi-per­fect styling makes the an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of cinema and style, an un­miss­able gala.

While the big­gest names in Hol­ly­wood make their pres­ence felt, Bol­ly­wood also makes its mark, ev­ery year. At the 70th edi­tion of the fes­ti­val, ac­tor Deepika Padukone has man­aged to give us two ap­pear­ances — both very dif­fer­ent from each other. While sheer play and solid colours were big on her agenda, we also loved her beauty looks that gave us ma­jor in­spi­ra­tion. One of the big­gest trends among the stars in­cluded a mash-up of dra­matic cathe­dral train and floor-length gowns that trailed del­i­cately be­hind. Here, we pick some stand-out looks served on the first two days of the fest.

TRAILING TRAINS Ac­tor Deepika Padukone made a case for gowns that played with length. While her March­esa look (left) had a bit of tulle trailing be­hind her, the Bran­don Maxwell emer­ald num­ber also had a flowy train that added to her Gre­cian grace. Like one more than another?

When it came to the beauty look, clas­sic seemed to be the code. Un­like Deepika who dared to play with green, oth­ers stuck to the clas­sic com­bi­na­tion of black­streaked eye­lids and state­ment red lips. Here’s (top to bot­tom) Elle Fan­ning, Fan Bing­bing and Adri­ana Lima in the look
