To complement the outfit, the actress kept it simple with a pair of white heels and accessorized with dangling diamond earrings.

The actress’s look was a lot disappointing for the fashion world and she became the target of the fashion police. The bat detail, at her waist, was a complete turn off and took away from her entire vibe. According to the fashion police, the outfit was definitely not red-carpet-worthy as the different treatment of the train made for a discordant addition. The train looked like an attached not so needed fabric. The way she styled her hair, in simple curls hanging down her neck also made for a boring addition. Mallika kept her look neutral with the ensemble, which could have been way better if there was a dash of some drama in it.
The global icon, Priyanka Chopra opted for a white tulle gown. Hard to believe but this was Priyanka's debut appearance at Cannes. She was at the international event to represent the jewelry brand Chopard. The actress successfully made every appearance in her Cannes debut count.
The diva never fails to amaze the fashion world when it comes to red carpet appearances and her Cannes one was not an exception. PeeCee adorned a pristine white layered tulle gown from the studios of Georges Hobeika. She complimented her look with a diamond necklace and earrings, designed by Chopard. The actress’s make-up was minimal and she had her hair pulled back in a bun. Nick Jonas was the surprise element at the red carpet and he walked hand-in-hand with her. He accompanied his wife in a white suit. Their presence was sheer magic at the red carpet, Priyanka posted a video of her look on her Instagram story and describing herself as a "cloud of tulle."
For the red carpet of 72nd Cannes International Film Festival, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja came dressed in all-white. Her gorgeous ensemble was designed by Ralph and Russo. She carried fierce boss lady vibes, adorning a gorgeous couture tuxedo. The tuxedo featured a glorious plunging neckline.
The 'Neerja' actress adorned the blazer with tailored straight pants and added a pinch of elegance with a belt on her waist which was worn with a stunning train. Her look was accessorized with some major bling from Chopard. She embraced a multi-layered emerald green necklace along with minimalistic earrings which added a certain charm and magical vibe to her entire look. She leveled up her ensemble by adding strapped white embellished pumps. Her hair was tied in a sleek bun, and for the makeup, she had cat-eyes with a stroke of dark kohl, nude lips, dewy make-up, and a hint of blush on her cheeks, the actress went all-glam for her fierce outfit.
