Deepika one-up on Ash in Cannes appearance

New Delhi: It’s a thumps-up from designers to actress Deepika Padukone, who stole the limelight with perfect attire on her very first red carpet appearance at the Cannes International Film Festival as against the experienced Aishwarya Rai, who has made many a fashion faux pas.

Aishwarya, who has been attending the French film festival since 2002 as the global face of L’Oreal, has been drawing flak from designers for her wrong choice of outfits and was only able to impress last year when she wore a white off-shoulder Roberto Cavalli.

The 36-year-old looked great this year as well in a violet blue fully embroidered tulle and mousseline gown from Lebanese designer Elie Saab, but 24-year-old Deepika was able to make the right choice in her first go itself.

The young actress, who is attending the event as the face of liquor brand Chivas Regal, opted for a Rohit Bal — off white, slightly embroidered saree with touches of gold, instead of a western look.
