When it comes to red carpet glamour, every year the Cannes Film Festival brings out the best of stars, dressed to absolute perfection. This year, our Bollywood’s leading lady Kangana Ranaut made her debut at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and as expected, she stole the show!
Despite being a newcomer at the international event’s red carpet (which sees some of the world’s biggest names every year), Kangana embraced bold designs, bright colours and tricky silhouettes — something that her counterparts avoided. Be it the red carpet or the streets, Kangana’s ensembles managed to turn heads every time.
Let’s take a look at all her looks for the event.
1. Sabyasachi Mukherjee

The saree is hand-dyed and embellished with hand-cut sequins that are individually sewn using zardosi technique, to create a metallic, yet fluid fabric. Her look is accessorised with a Sabyasachi batua and the ‘teenmaniya’ necklace, crafted out of rose-cut diamonds, Colombian emeralds and basra pearls from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection.

For her very first Cannes Film Festival appearance, Kangana chose to wear a Sabyasachi Mukherjee creation. It was a cocktail-ready sparkly black saree, channelling a glamorous Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She accessorised her look with a matching handbag, a choker necklace set in diamonds, emeralds and pearls, a dramatic bouffant, creamy pink lips, super-long eyelashes and bold black cat eyes.
2. Zuhair Murad
For her debut at the Cannes red carpet, Kangana showed off her sculpted arms and back in a see-through Zuhair Murad gown. She has never shied away from showing some skin — this gorgeous sheer crystal embellished dress did justice to her toned body.
Next in line was the skintight low-cut latex dress with a high front slit from Nanushka. Kangana completed her look with a trendy pair of sunglasses from Poppy Lissiman. This oh-so-sexy style sense of hers is worth all the praise.
When nothing was left for her to teach us, Kangana taught her how to rock a bra without going overboard. This is definitely the boldest street style look for this year’s Cannes festival. For this look, the scintillating beauty is sporting a head-to-toe Trussardi ensemble.
