Is Deepika Padukone ready for Cannes?

Deepika Padukone has given us appearances that have taken us by storm, be it on Filmfare red carpets, at airports or even in films. Her fashion game has always been sailing high and she has hardly been criticised for any of her looks. But what happens to her on international events? Does she forget where she is going? Perhaps!

The MTV EMA was the first red carpet appearance she made before the release of her first Hollywood project, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. But technically, that isn’t her first international appearance. She first stepped foot on the prestigious red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. Didn’t spot her? Don’t worry, she went practically unnoticed. Here’s what she wore:

Though, some could say that the Rohit Bal saree looks good, and we agree that the blouse is great, but this is CANNES. You don’t go to Cannes like this!


In 2014, Padukone made her next international appearance, when Ram Leela opened at theĀ Marrakech International Film Festival. She opted for a mustard Gauri-Nainika gown, which looked absolutely beautiful on her. But why would you pair it up with such earrings?

Next, is her very famous appearance at the MTV EMA red carpet.


Here, Padukone is wearing a Monisha Jaising number custom-made for her. From the extra bling, to the danglers, nothing is right about this outfit. The actress received a lot of criticism for her look at this red carpet event and this was the first time the MTV EMA was so much talked about in India. International websites even called Padukone a ‘Bollywood Blunder’.

Unlike Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone went almost unnoticed at the Golden Globes.

After all that criticism at the MTV EMA, Padukone decided to keep it simple for her next appearance in a lemon yellow Ralph Lauren gown. But, don’t you think she missed a step and went ‘too simple, too soon’?

Deepika Padukone probably forgot where she was going when she went for the pre-Oscars party and the time while going for Oscar after party. Here are her looks:

This is what the actress wore the the pre-Oscars party. Though the floralĀ Duro Olowu number is really pretty, it is more of a brunch dress. Padukone did receive praise for this outfit of hers, but the criticism was too much in abundance. And what’s up with the make up? And look at the shoes! Just, no!


For the after party, she opted for a, well, an old number. Here’s why we call it an old number:

Finally, here comes the Met Gala! It has been a while since Padukone has been trying to impress the fashion police, but has always failed at it. She played very very safe for the Met Gala, 2017 but ended up failing miserably, while Priyanka Chopra owned the red carpet like it was always hers. Here’s what Padukone wore:

Well, we can’t really say if she will rock the red carpet at Cannes or no. We wish she does! But she certainly has made India proud by achieving so much!
