Will Deepika Padukone shake things up on the red carpet?

The mic drop moment will soon be upon us. With Deepika Padukone joining Sonam Kapoor on the Cannes red carpet this year, expect to see fashion scales amp up in a big way. Tbh, we were hoping for Dippy to join the style bandwagon when she got signed on as the new L’Oreal brand ambassador. But then she went ahead and doused our hopes when she declared she won’t make it due to her Padmavati shoot schedules. But Dippy has finally been convinced and we couldn’t be happier.

You know Sonam is a winner; she was born to slay the red carpet. But when you throw an equal challenger like Deepika into the mix, things start to look exciting for fashion watchers like us. So, we present an anticipatory look-book for the two divas. We create looks going by their personality and signature style. Take a dekko and drool.

Deepika's penchant for thigh-high slits and plunge necklines is well known by now. So, we could expect her to turn up the heat and give some stiff competition to her fellow Indian and international Cannes fashionistas in a risque outfit. Think bold lips, glitter/smoky eyes, minimal accessories and lotsa skin show (we're squealing in dellight already!). So, we've given her options from her most favourite designers.

Outfit: Naeem Khan

Ring: Valliyan by Nitya Arora

Shoes: Steve Madden

What Sonam might wear:

Sonam loves drama on the red carpet. Unabashed drama. If her trailing cape, glittery nose ring, structured rufflles, pre-draped saree haven't made it palpable yet, it's time you got used to her style on international red carpets. She doesn't do boring, she likes to stand out. Even though she mostly picks an unassuming white or beige. We're taking dibs on at least one Ralph & Russo look for this year cuz it's her absolute favourite.

Dress: Ralph & Russo

Shoes: Ralph & Russo

Earrings: Cartier
