Indian Fashion @ Cannes

How many of you are ardent fashion followers, I know every woman loves fashion but how many keep an eye on the trend and fashion updates? Cannes film festival in France has been one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world bringing in all film fraternity across the globe. Stars & Fashion go hand in hand and so we get to see some hottest couture in there.  Cannes has not only been the center stage for world films but also world couture.
Like every year, this year also Aishwarya is going to be at Cannes along with her father in law Amitabh Bachan, her rival Sonam Kapoor, the lovely Vidya Balan( jury member), sexy Mallika Sherawat and Frieda Pinto. Just as every time, this time too the debates have began long time back about whoz wearing what and whoz going to win the fashion battle. 
Vidya as usual chose her trusted ace designer Sabyasachi for all of her appearances, Sonam had mixed choices along with her favourite Anamika Khanna, Frieda usually has gone for western designer dress, Mallika too had gone for the same.
Surprisingly Amitabh Bachan also chose to be a bit more into fashion with a stripy coat and glittering black suit at the Great Gatsby premiere. I like the stripy one better!

Aishwarya is yet to arrive on the red carpet. So far its only the battle between Sonam, Vidya, Frieda & Mallika. Frieda & Mallika have not scored big as their fashion choices weren't too flattering or experimental.

Whereas the fashionista Sonam did try some bold ways, one of which is a Anamika Khanna's saree with a long jacket along with a over sized nose ring. I personally wasn't impressed with that over sized nose ring although many applauded her bold style. I thought make up could have been far far better as the natural complexion of hers seems to be no match. It is clearly visible in that close up shot.

The other appearance of hers is the barbie doll attire with Elie Saab dress and a glittered clutch was a win win. Again I opine she should have chosen some pretty hair accessory along with it to make more appealing. The hair looks too simple.

The previous appearance of hers which was a huemn styled outfit along with funky accessory by suhani pettie which was really perfect for her sleek figure, the ensemble was really fresh and rocking.

Next she tries out this Shehla khans's lehenga and some diamond to top it. To me it appears like the designer has drawn huge inspiration from the Alexander McQueen label. But for Indian style, it seems like not working. Not too bad but not great as well.
The other appearance of this young fashionista is in a floral Dolce & Gabbana dress. Which is a hit obviously given the spring/summer season around the world. The hair style she chose seems too simple for such dramatic dress...she could have added a bit more glam/floral hair accessories to complete the look. But in spite of all she looks pretty!

Vidya goes ethnic, classy and elegant as her usual self. The first appearance of hers was a red lehenga with a clean and simple hair do along with a traditional bindi. This was simply neat and too decent. That was sooo Vidya style. Well, who can say no to this Indian beauty. Tweets say that the westerners were in awe of Vidya's ethnic ensembles, they opine her outfits are fresh and unique as they so much used to see same old western gowns.

Second was a saree of classic shades and a kerala traditional style saree along with brown embroidered blouse, the hairdo and make up are kept simple which is again very very desi.
Thrid appearance seemed to be weird because the dupatta over the head ruined the look, she looked like a vintage princess which seemed out of place and the colours chosen also didn't seem much different from her saree.

For the next appearance Vidya chose a saree and ofcourse simple hair do which suits her much. For many this simple hairdos work far better than twists n curls. I am so happy that Sabyasachi has chose not to flaunt any skin or curves with his designs and kept it very decent, dignified and elegant. Moreover all her ensembles are very Indian, be it the choice of textile or embroidered work or the jewellery. She is like on a mission to represent the country's prestigious artisans.
For this attire, the nose ring was an added attraction..while many disliked the nathi, I felt its quite quintessential part of our vintage attires and works well on her. My only complain was that sapphire neck piece which kinda ruined the colour combo..the pop of blue seemed out of place.
Yet to see Aishwarya's appearance. Of course she has come a long way and learned it in a tougher way getting many fashion faux passes from the fashion police for some of her bizzarre appearances. And last time she carried all her baby weight to the festival with poise and grace. This time it may be her baby herself. Hopefully she doesn't disappoint this time.
