The looks were much-discussed by fashion critics.Here’s a look at some of the best-dressed Indians we saw at the Cannes 2024 Film Festival this year, the range was indeed commendable:

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

You can hate her or troll her, but you definitely can’t ignore Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as she graces the Cannes red carpet every year. She had two looks this year that grabbed eyeballs all over the world and was critiqued rather brusquely. Her first was an avant garde black and white gown with flounce sleeves and 3d golden applique work on the upper bodice. It came with a long white train with 3D golden flowers embellished on it. She kept her makeup look clean with winged liner and muted lips. Her second attire got severe backlash but that wasn’t enough to dim her confidence. It was a dramatic silver and turquoise green fringe gown. The outfit featured a fishtail hemline, extravagant sleeves with sequins and the metallic fringe work cascading down in layers from the midriff to the ends of the long train. She went for an eye-catching eyeshadow, a wavy hairdo and nude lips for her finishing touches.

Kani Kusruti

Kani Kusruti had more reasons than one to be the centre of attraction at Cannes 2024. Her film All We Imagine As Light where she plays one of the leads was considered for the Palme d’or and won the Grand Prix Award. What made heads turn on the red carpet was when she graced it and showed her solidarity towards the ongoing Palestine genocide. She wore a lovely ivory dress with puffy sleeves, for accessories she opted for a watermelon clutch to show her support. For those unaware, this fruit has been considered a strong symbol of support for Palestine due to its shades of green, red and black seeds that also represent the colours of the Palestinian flag. It created a positive stir on social media. Another day look of hers that was noteworthy was a lovely floral textured dress with a matching blazer. And statement pearl studs to go with it.

Another talented actress, Chhaya Kadam who is also from the All We Imagine As Light cast had a sentimental attachment to her first look.

It was a beige and cream saree paired with a purple blouse. The nath and gajra were the traditional touches to it. Her winning outfit was an Indo-western style where she paired a white shirt with a golden and black printed skirt and a black blazer. She amped up her look with bold golden jewellery and did not let go of the nath. Her makeup was all about kohled eyes and matte lips.

Ratna Pathak Shah

The veteran actress was elegantly personified as she chose an outfit for the special screening of Manthan at Cannes 2024, from her wardrobe. She wore it with a lovely jacket and blouse that was plant-dyed and handcrafted from recycled cotton. She kept it chic with her salt-and-pepper bob haircut and statement jewels to complete her look. The Chanderi sari from her collection had the samandar leher technique incorporated in it which led to the multi-shaded outcome on the drapes. The lavender blouse was picked to complement her saree. In ways, it was an ode to Ratna Pathak Shah’s love for handlooms.

The first Indian to bag the Best Actress award for the film The Shameless had an eclectic taste in style too.
