When it comes to Bollywood's tryst with Cannes fashion, two names shine heads and heels over the rest — Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor. The former is a veteran, pulling off looks that are classic, while the latter is known for her experiments, and is widely hailed as THE Indian celeb fashionista. And she has just shown us all why.

Styled by Rhea Kapoor, Sonam let the Ralph & Russo sari-inspired dress do all the talking, keeping accessories to a bare minimum — stud earrings and white-rock ring. For her make-up, the white highlights at the edges of the kohled-eyes accentuated the drama of the overall look, a simple nude pink lip colour acted as a balance, and the no-nonsense straight hair gave her an aura of sophisticated severity. We don't care if it's been called a roomali roti by the social media, we love it! (Source: AP)

The 30-year-old slayed hearts in this dramatic white gown with an embroidered cape, with a matching embroidered choker. The design is reminiscent of Ralph & Russo's Spring/Summer 2016 collection, but with the cape running over one shoulder and a counter-train attached to the waist, this particular piece may have been custom-made.
