Of her Cannes appearances

Ever since 2010, Deepika made her debut on the illustrious Cannes’ red carpet; there has been no looking back for her. Here are some of her much-loved looks at the international film festival.

Deepika turned up the heat in a one-shoulder Brandon Maxwell bottle green gown with a thigh-high slit. Smokey eyes, diamonds from DGrisogono, heels from Chloe Gosselin and a neat high bun completed her look.
The Piku star flaunted her long toned legs as she slipped in a revealing plum Marchesa gown with floral embroidery. Her bold lips and beachy tresses added up much grace to the whole look.
For one of the Cannes’ press events, she dressed up in a red floral gown designed by Johanna Ortiz. Smokey blue eye and highlighted hair did the rest talking for her.

Of Award Functions:

The Padmaavat beauty is one of those actresses who has always taken compliments and controversies with a balanced head. Experimental fashion is something that she has never shied away from. Despite the fact that her style and PR team have often been accused of copying ideas from other celebrities, Deepika has just been there, strong, beautiful and how. No matter whether it’s a rich Kanjeevaram saree or a thigh-high slit gown, her exceptional sartorial choices always end up making statements. Let’s take a look at her best-dressed award nights.

Designers’ muse, DP slipped in a Shane and Peacock sculpted gown that featured a plunging neck and voluminous shoulder. Fiercely laudable, isn’t she?
Deepika took to dazzle at IIFA in an ivory Sabyasachi featuring a netted cape and floral embellishments. With dark smokey eyes and an emerald jewellery set, she made sure that all eyes were on her.

Of Films and Promotions:

We know you gushed over Deepika’s heavily embroidered anarkalis, lehenga-cholis and ghagaras in RaamLeela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat (we did too). Talk of her make-up, jewellery or hairdo, the actress has been a sight to behold. She also nailed her looks to perfection during the films’ promotions. While the fact remains that it’s near to impossible to cover all of her glamourous statements, we have tried a hand at bringing some of her classiest sartorial choices.

Her look from Padmaavat is the most talked about in 2018. Styled by Rimple and Harpreet Narula, her traditional Rajasthani costumes and extravagant jewellery got us drooling. Be it her Ghoomar ghaghara or pastel and Bandhani lehengas, she looked like a quintessential beauty.

Of Deepika’s love for sarees

If you’ve closely followed Deepika’s style statements, you might have noticed her fascination for Sabyasachi Mukherji. There are rumours that she might also rope in the designer for her wedding with beau Ranveer Singh. What we have really loved about her sarees is that they are always fuss-free, well-proportioned with makeup and accessories. Let’s look at some of her adorable looks in drapes.

This floral saree from the Sabyasachi’s spring collection was spot on. Loved the way she paired the blouse with intricate details.
Deepika looked royal in this saree that had the beautiful tint of orange all over. With a massive gold choker with emerald and ruby work and her hair loosely pulled up in a retro-styled bun, she did complete justice to her attire.
Deepika looked amazing in a laser cut saree by Rohit Bal at Ambani’s party. Flaunting her chiseled shoulders in a halter neck blouse, she tied her hair in a classic way and stole the limelight.
By adding that dark lip colour, she created a bolder look at the Lakme Fashion Week. She was styled by Shaleena Nathani and her makeup was done by Daniel Bauer. Saree never looked so drool-worthy, isn’t it?
Deepika looked breathtakingly beautiful in a peach-pink Banarasi saree with marori border at her dad’s felicitation ceremony. Neat side parted low bun and a pair of dazzling earrings were the right wardrobe accompaniments for the evening.

Of Airport looks

Deepika looks ravishing all the time. Be it a plain tee, a simple short dress or a body-hugging gown, she has always succeeded in giving us major fashion goals. Talking about her airport looks, the dimpled beauty has always charmed paparazzi and aficionados with her smart leather jackets, comfy tank tops, pretty dresses and a wide smile. Needless to say, her style is effortless, comfortable and yet very stylish.

Prettiness in sight! A strappy striped dress paired with a white tee.
Trench coat done right! Ripped denims teamed with a basic tee and sporty shoes made for comfortable travel look.
