Cannes 2022 has started and we are excited to look at the red carpet looks. Some celebrities have already made a few appearances for the event while some are still left.
This year, India is the country of honour. This is why we can spot several celebrities in France for the event. Deepika Padukone is a jury member this year which made our nation proud. She has already reached France and is blowing us all away with her stunning looks. Her recent red carpet look is something that is being talked about by everyone. For this look, Deepika Padukone wore a Sabyasachi saree and looked stunning.
This Bengal Tiger couture sari is a part of the iconic Aakash Tara collection. This collection celebrates heritage Indian crafts and techniques but the interesting part is that it gives the traditional outfits a modern twist.
Sabyasachi Mukherjee says, “The stripes have been block printed and hand embroidered by some of India’s finest craftspeople at the Sabyasachi atelier.”
“The look is paired with statement pieces from Sabyasachi Jewellery’s Bengal Royale Collection. The headband pays homage to the traditional Indian matha patti headpiece with Art Nouveau detailing, while the chandelier earrings updates a classic with an Art Deco gaze,” he adds.
However, this is not the first time that an Indian celeb wore a saree at the Cannes. Before this, several other Indian celebs wore saree during the Cannes festival. Here are some of the most noteworthy saree appearances of Indian celebs at the Cannes.
