For every Roberto Cavalli gown that they manage to get right, there are eight outdated lehengas that just drag mankind back by two steps.

9 Most Ridiculous Red Carpet Looks At Cannes

With an army of A-list designers on their speed dial, rocking the red carpet of one of the most prestigious film events to hit showbiz would be a breeze. Or so you’d think. When it comes to Bollywood divas and fashion, we’ve learnt the hard way not to take anything for granted. Here’s a list of eight Bollywood appearances at the Cannes red carpet that gave the fashion police many a sleepless night:

 

Vidya Balan, 2013

Sure, the first time round, the look may have made heads turn; but 94568976 tries later, we are ready to doze off in boredom. She may have attended Cannes last year in the capacity of a jury member, but given her stubborn fetish for repeating done-to-death outfits; right about now, we’d be hard put to trust her judgment on 2+2.

And some more of Vidya Balan. Between the sarees and the slicked back haired do, Vidya probably decided that while she was going for the school mom look, she might as well go the whole nine yards; pun unintended.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, 2003

While we all get sentimental when it comes to the 90s, we wish Aishwarya wouldn’t reserve prestigious red carpet photo-ops to demonstrate her love for decades-old fashion.

Sherlyn Chopra, 2013

Say hello to Sherlyn decked in a sheer black gown that makes for a sheer eyesore. More evidence, if needed, that film festival invites are handed out on the basis of how many contacts you have, and not fashion acumen. And yet more evidence, why that needs to change.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, 2004

Sorry Aishwarya, but if the ample amount of skin revealed by that excuse of a gown was supposed to distract us from the general hideousness of the outfit, it failed. And spectacularly.

Puja Gupta, 2013

While we are all for respecting people’s opinions and individual choices; Puja Gupta, if you’ve got a thing for ill-fitting furnishings, you might as well opt for a proper sofa cover next time. After all, you are only representing India at the Cannes. Just the biggest fashion event of the year. No biggie.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, 2003

Is it a bird? A tree? No, it is a young Aishwarya demonstrating her support for the environment by sporting a parrot green lehenga that’ll probably make you go blind if you stare at it for over two minutes running, so scroll down. Quick.

Mallika Sherawat, 2012

While we can understand that her phone hasn’t exactly been ringing off the hook once her last release bombed, we are pretty sure that Mallika could scrape together some change and afford something more than a decidedly sleazy gown made out of a fabric with all the consistency of tissue paper.

Amitabh Bachchan, 2013

Keeping up the Bachchan family tradition of blinding fellow attendees; Amitabh Bachchan opted for a sequined tuxedo, so blingy that Rakhi Sawant wouldn’t deign to touch it.
