One of the biggest film festivals of the year, Cannes Film Festival, is fast approaching. Celebrating the very best of worldwide film industries, its red carpet hails as one of the biggest highlights throughout the event.

For 2017, Bollywood fans can expect to see regulars Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attend the festival. But the 70th Cannes Film Festival will also mark the debut appearance of none other than Deepika Padukone representing the Indian film industry.

And while fans can’t wait to see what they will wear on the red carpet, the stars have shown some sneak peeks of what to expect.

The luxurious film festival will take place between 17th and 28th May 2017. Not only does the festival celebrate its 70th anniversary, but it will act as the 16th year Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will walk the red carpet.

Nicknamed the “Queen of Cannes”, the Bollywood star will once again represent L’Oreal Paris, as will Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. And they have kept very tight-lipped on what they will wear.

However, on social media, fans have been treated to sneak peeks of what their red carpets looks could possibly involve. Deepika and Aishwarya became involved in a L’Oreal Paris photoshoot, looking utterly stunning and jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

By using hashtags such as “#cannesbynight”, it seems fans are in for a magnificent treat for the Cannes Film Festival. Deepika looked glam in an array of beautiful outfits, from a shimmering gold dress to a classic black gown.

With her hair tied back and sporting dark makeup, DESIblitz wonders if she will step up her game after the MET Gala 2017. While the actress looked elegant at the April event, she didn’t catch the media’s attention, compared to the likes of Priyanka Chopra.

And as this marks her debut Cannes appearance, she needs to do well to become a stand-out style icon. Deepika will hit the red carpet on 17th and 18th May.

Meanwhile, the “Queen of Cannes” showcased her eye-catching makeup and hair styles in the photoshoot. Will fans see a return of bold colours in Aishwarya’s look?

Many will easily remember Aishwarya hitting the headlines for her choice of a purple lipstick for her 2016 appearance. And while it received mixed reactions, the choice caught everyone’s attention.

In these photo shoots, the actress adopts both a natural and glamourous look. In particular, many will instantly notice her bold pink lip.

Does this mean the 70th Cannes Film Festival will see her dazzle in pink? Find out as she arrives at the red carpet on 19th and 20th May.

However, while Deepika and Aishwarya have given fans a taste of what to expect, Sonam Kapoor has kept her cards close to her chest. But this shouldn’t worry fans, as Sonam showed last year she can look absolutely stunning in magnificent gowns.

Strutting down the red carpet in regal outfits, Sonam certainly took centre-stage. She received many praises, with some saying she “slayed” the film festival.

Therefore, fans can expect to the actress make a similar impact in this years’ Cannes Film Festival. She’s set to make an appearance on 21st and 22nd May.
