A red carpet staple, the cape is making a big splash at Cannes 2017 thanks to the actor.

Deepika Padukone scored a coup with her red carpet appearances at the Cannes Film Festival this year. 

On Day One, her sheer one-shoulder Marchesa gown was a clear winner. 

She followed it up with a stunning thigh-high slit gown in teal by Brandon Maxwell on Day Two. A caped creation that took us down memory lane.

We revisit the stars who slayed the Cannes red carpet in a cape.

Having worn not one, but four capes on the Cannes red carpet, Sonam is well on her way to being called the 'Cape Queen of Cannes'.
