She wore a plum coloured Marchesa Notte for Day 1 at this year?s Cannes Film Festival

Deepika Padukone owned the red carpet with her look on the first day of the Cannes Film Festival 2017. Dressed in a plum coloured gown by designer Marchesa Notte, Deepika looked confident and radiant at the opening ceremony.


Deepika chose to wear the wine sheer dress with Jimmy Choo heels and De Grisogono jewellery. She chose dangle earrings and a cocktail ring to supplement her look. 


Deepika is at Cannes representing global cosmetic giant L’Oreal Paris for the first time. Her contemporaries, Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will also join her in the following days, representing the brand. 

She walked before the screening of French director Arnaud Desplechin’s Les Fantomes d’Ismael. 


She also mingled with the L’Oreal Paris’s co-ambassadors Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon and Elle Fanning before leaving for the red carpet.


Ahead of her Cannes appearance, Deepika told IANS: “What is the red carpet without having fun? I know there is a lot of focus on the clothes, the hair and the make-up, but from all of that, I think the most important thing is that everyone who walks that red carpet must have fun with all of that and that experience.”
