Deepika Padukone has already proved that she is a fashionista to reckon with, thanks to her many international red carpet gigs of late. Her fellow Hollywood export, Priyanka Chopra, found in her a worthy style rival. So, when Dippy was declared the brand ambassador of the beauty brand that reps Bollywood’s most fashionable ladies at Cannes, you knew what it meant. It meant Deepika would be out to pose some stiff competition to the brand’s other beauties including Sonam Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But Dippy says she can’t go to Cannes at all! Padmavati shoot will keep her busy.


Uh oh.

It means Sonam can still call the style diva shots at Cannes. Last time, Sonam repped quite a few Indian designers including Rimzim Dadu, and Gauri and Nainika. And with Dippy staying away from the limelight, Sonam could continue to rule Cannes with her offbeat red carpet styles.

From her gold nath to her cape-inspired saree, Sonam manages to give fashion paps at Cannes enough fodder to keep them talking for seasons to come.

With Deepika giving this major fashion gala a miss, it looks all set to be Sonam’s year at Cannes again.


Unless Dippy changes her mind at the last minute.
