Deepika Padukone dethrones Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the ‘Queen of Cannes’
The 71st Cannes International Film Festival was a glittery affair thanks to Bollywood beauties like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut. While the Queen actress made her debut on the red carpet this year, others like Ash and Sonam were regular already. We were smitten by the former Miss World when she stepped out in a butterfly inspired Michael Cinco gown and the reaction was similar when DP picked a sheer Zuhair Murad creation. The festival that is known for its movie screenings is nothing short of a fashion week where beauties from all over the world put their best fashion foot forward to dazzle on the red carpet. While we personally loved what DP wore for her two day outings at the French Riviera, we also admired the way Aishwarya carried herself with panache. Yet we wanted to know what our readers think and if their opinion is drastically different from ours. We conducted a poll to find out which beauty had the best style outing at Cannes this year and the results are out finally.
The Padmaavat actress, Ms Padukone, managed to emerge victorious with 47 per cent of the total number of votes. She beat Mahira Khan with a huge margin as the Raees actress came second with 21 per cent votes. The ladies were then followed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was always known as the ‘Queen of Cannes’ with 19 per cent votes. Sonam Kapoor came fourth with 9 per cent votes, then Kangana Ranaut with 4 per cent votes. Lastly it was Huma Qureshi who unfortunately didn’t manage to bag a single vote.
