The Indes cover features Deepika Padukone in a bold avatar.
With Cannes scheduled between May 17 and 28, all eyes are on Indian personalities who will make the grand walk on the red carpet.
While most celebrities are yet to make it to the city, Deepika Padukone has pulled out a winner.
French magazine Indes has put Deepika on its May cover and boy, she looks S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G!
The special issue reads 'India at Cannes' and features the Bollywood actor in a plunging black cut-out dress.
Her purple eye make up and dark lips lend a sexy, edgy look the cover. Her long straight hair falls in gentle curves on one side.
Last year, Aishwarya Rai was on Indes. But Deepika is clearly more glamorous and sexy in the latest cover.
Deepika made her debut at Cannes in 2010 in an ivory coloured Rohit Bal sari.
This year, she will appear on the red carpet on May 17 and 18.
