The Cannes Film Festival, officially named Festival de Cannes, is one of the biggest events in world cinema and was first held back in 1946. The event is widely famous for recognising artistic talents, incredible stories and influential work in the field of cinema. The event is held annually in the beautiful city of Cannes in France. Unlike other film events, Cannes is famous for bringing the underrated talent right in front of the world cinema and bringing enormous exposure to talented artists and works through its tremendous popularity, authenticity and legacy.
However, there's no doubt that outfits donned by celebrities have taken the internet by storm more than films in recent years. We have seen it on numerous occasions when a celebrity's outfit got more hype than a successful film at the Cannes. However, we can do nothing about it, but luckily, fashion and films have started gelling in together at the Cannes Film Festival. So, today we take a look at some of the bizarre fashion moments on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. So, without further ado, let's jump straight into it!
Popular Hollywood actress, Amber Heard had set the headlines on fire when she had walked on the red carpet in Cannes 2019. The Aquaman actress had opted for a sultry outfit from Claes Iverson Spring 2018 Couture and had received a ton of negative remarks. Talking about Amber Heard's white dress, it had a thigh-high slit detailing along with sequins. Amber had also donned a statement brown belt that had received heavy criticism from the fashion police on the internet. Moreover, the actress was heavily criticised for not turning up to the mega-event and opting for a mediocre outfit for the Cannes Film Festival.
Cannes Film Festival 2019 was the first time when Priyanka Chopra Jonas had made her debut on the red carpet of the world-famous film event. However, it hadn't gone according to the actress' plan. From getting trolled for her glittering gown to speculations about her pregnancy, everything had gone downhill for the famous Bollywood actress.
At the Cannes 2019, Priyanka Chopra Jonas had donned a black strapless outfit that had featured a thigh-high slit detailing, and she had completed her look with wavy hair. While most of Priyanka's fans were impressed by her look, a lot of people had trolled The White Tiger actress for choosing a glittery gown and the dramatic train of her outfit for her first-ever appearance at the international film festival. Some had even started speculating about her pregnancy after observing a slight bulge around her tummy.
Many celebrities had made their Cannes debut at the 2019 edition of the film festival, and one such actress was the famous Hollywood actress, Margot Robbie. The actress had opted for sequin Chanel pants and a matching top with a big bow and a rose accent atop it. However, her outfit that had given a retro vibe was trolled massively as the netizens had titled Margot Robbie's experiment a failure on the red carpet.
Just when the netizens had thought that they'd seen enough fashion blunders at the Cannes Film Festival 2019, Bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone's lime green-coloured gown had shocked everyone. The actress had walked on the red carpet donning a ruffled Giambattista Valli gown and had paired it with a baby pink bow and a matching headband.
However, while her husband, Ranveer Singh was in awe of his wife's look, netizens were disappointed with the colour she had chosen for her gown. Some people had even blamed Ranveer for making his wife fall in love with loud tones and over-dramatic outfits just like him.
The 2019 edition of the Cannes Film Festival was the home of fashion disasters, and it was accepted by everyone when the world-famous fashion designer, Victoria Beckham had shocked everyone with her ordinary look. The ace designer had opted for an elegant jumpsuit which had a white-trimmed sweetheart neckline and was far below the expectations people had of her.
Victoria Beckham's strapless jumpsuit was one of the most less-talked about looks at the Cannes 2019. It was indeed a disappointing moment for her massive fanbase, who had expected something creative and refreshing from the iconic fashion designer.
At the Cannes Film Festival 2019, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had become a subject of massive trolling for two reasons. The first one was her luminous neon Jean-Louis Sabaji Couture gown. The second was her decision to take her daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan, to the event. The netizens had trolled the actress for her custom-made one-shoulder gown, and some had even compared it with a reptile's texture. Many people had questioned Aishwarya's fashion sense and had slammed the actress for her decision to opt for this fishy outfit.
No matter how much trolling these actresses had received in the past. There's no denying that each one of them has inspired a generation with their fashion quotient, and a few misses will never change or diminish that fact.
