Sonam Kapoor

L'Oreal brand ambassador Sonam Kapoor looked striking in her dramatic Dolce & Gabbana gown, with jewellery by mum Sunita, at the screening of the French drama Jeune et Jolie (Young And Beautiful) at the Palais des Festivals.

Her full-skirted floral gown added just the right amount of glamour to the high profile event.

Dressed in a haute couture sari by Anamika Khanna, Sonam looked ethereal on the red carpet as she arrived to attend the opening ceremony that was kicked off by the premeire of Baz Lurhmann's The Great Gatsby.

The actress's deep red lipstick, a loose braid and dramatic eye makeup complemented her glamorous desi outfit.

But it was her massive nose ring that hogged all the attention.

Freida Pinto sparkled in her custom Gucci gown in hot pink and a gorgeous beaded belt on the red carpet, as she arrived for the opening ceremony.

The actress rounded off the look with a side updo and Chopard jewels. Light make-up and a tiny floral ring added just the right touch to the whole look.

Later, Freida looked very fashionable in a sparkly beaded gown from Indian designer Sanchita, as she walked in for the Juene et Jolie screening.

A wavy side updo and red lips rounded off the look perfectly. The actress's gown showed off her toned legs and back.

Ameesha later took to the red carpet in a graceful Manish Malhotra creation. Her embroidered lehenga came as a welcome respite from the Sabyasachi flood at Cannes but she could have done better with the makeup.

Mallika continued to surprise us with her refined sartorial choices on the Cannes red carpet. Dressed in a full-skirted Dolce & Gabbana number, the actress attended the Inside Llewyn Davis premiere.

Complementing her gothic dress, the actress went easy on her eye makeup and kept things bright by adding a natural shade of lip colour.

Amitabh Bachchan arrived at the photocall of his first Hollywood project, Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.

Unfortunately, what he chose to wear to the event was more talked about than what he said or did there.

Dressed in a striped jacket, white trousers and white shoes, the legend's appearance was a far cry from his usually impeccably suited look and stuck out like a sore thumb amidst well tailored, simple suits/jackets worn by other men in the group.
 
We wonder why the superstar loves his bizarre jackets.
