The Indian presence at the annual Cannes Film Festival just got hotter with another Bollywood hottie walking the red carpet besides Aishwarya Rai.
The hottie in question is Deepika Padukone who sashayed down the red carpet in a sensuous ivory coloured sari designed by Indian designer Rohit Bal.
Deepika arrived for the screening of the French film Tournee (On Tour) by director Mathieu Amalric. The film is competing for the festival's top prize, the Palme d'Or.
Deepika's sari was a novelty at the red carpet which is used to seeing mostly western wear.
In fact, this photographer took an extreme close up shot of Deepika's sari whose border was edged with elaborate gold embroidery. The gorgeous bangles complete the rich look.
Deepika, the 24-year-old Bollywood star’s first appearance at Cannes, and the first time a celebrity has walked the Cannes red carpet in the traditional Indian dress.
