Written By: Pragati Awasthi

Cannes is back this year and so is fashion. Cinema from across the globe is celebrated every year at the Cannes Film Festival.  After pandemic-triggered cancellation last year, the world's most glamorous film festival, Cannes, returned to the Croisette this week with its 74th edition. Just like the past years, the festival is back with a bang along with all the glitz and glamour this festival is renowned for.  

As Cannes kickstarts its festivities this week, we take a look back at Indian actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor who have walked the red carpet and turned heads with their unique fashion statement over the years. 

Here's a quick trip down memory lane:

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone dazzeled on the red carpet with a bold-padded shouldered gown with a giant black bow running across the front. Her second red carpet look at the Cannes Film Festival was quite an inspiration from her husband Ranveer Singh's wardrobe, as she opted for a lime green Giambattista Valli dress made of yards of gauzy fabric and was wearing a pink turban on her head.
