Outfits we absolutely loved from the Cannes red carpet

Outfits we absolutely loved from the Cannes red carpet

From Bella Hadid's vintage gown to Masoom Minawala's Manish Malhotra outfit, here are our top picks.
Updated 09 Jul, 2021

Some of the biggest names in film gathered along the French Riviera to attend the Cannes Film Festival this year and celebrities wore the best of what global fashion and couture has to offer.

The Cannes Film festival — held in Cannes, France — showcases films and documentaries of various genres from around the world annually. The festival is finally being held after being postponed twice due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We've compiled a list of our favourite outfits from the red carpet.

Indian fashion influencer Masoom Minawala arrived on the red carpet wearing a gorgeous ensemble by designer Manish Malhotra. We love the overall look, and apparently the internet can't help but love it too. Minawala's look was widely shared on social media.

Here is another netizen favourite and we quite agree. Model Bella Hadid looks ethereal in a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier Couture outfit.

Fashion influencer Diipa Khosla's lehnga by Falguni Shane Peacock definitely deserves an honourable mention for its eye-catching design and glamorous desi chic.

There was one look that we want to mention as well that caught our eye for more than just fashion.

Andie Macdowell's grey locks

American actor Andie Macdowell absolutely ruled the red carpet with her natural grey locks and we loved every moment of it — the confidence, the grace and the style!

Apparently it’s only okay if foreigners wear lehengas. If Pakistanis wore it, they’ll be criticised for wearing shaadi clothes.

@Chrís Dăn cavemen wore dresses to protect themselves. To cover themselves from the sun, mosquitoes, cold and what not. Your so called civilised worlds are wearing clothes that would embarass the cavemen and cave ladies. Throw them into the wilderness with such clothes on and they'll be wishing they'd worn better stuff. Keep your ideas of civility to your messed up head. One needs to act civil not look it...

@Say no to political correctness People who said tauba tauba to Alizeh Shah will say the same for Jessica too. Only thing is the tauba tauba audience were the people who belong to the masses, the lower to upper middle classes and they're probably not even aware who Jessica is. So stop being silly. Pakistani people every right to say tauba tauba as they are the ones who make our actors and actresses into celebrities. They watch their dramas. And our celebrities have a duty to represent the majority audience. They do so in dramas so why not in award shows?

They did what they did with dressing to overcome the problems. Learn to improve with time.

@Corruption fighter Have you ever seen men in equally disturbing "fashions" as some we have seen over the decades? So: Equal rights? Only in real life!" They are not disturbing. You need to watch Paris, Newyork, Milan couture fashion week more. You will find woman's cloths less controversial and digestable to your taste, then men's. And i agree with you woman there have equal rights as men.
