This year at Festival de Cannes Bollywood marked presence with its dynamic women in attendance.
As expected from the beauty queen, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dazzled the red carpet in this beautiful 'Butterfly gown', covered in Swarovski crystals and French palettes, the Cinco creation had a 20-feet long train. A perfect combination of bold and confidence Aishwarya owned the red carpet. (Photo: AP)
In her second appearance, Aishwarya donned a white gown with sharp cuts and shimmer. She completed her looks with minimal make up and jewellery, keeping it simple yet elegant. (Photo: AP)

Deepika Padukone chose this Zuhair Murad sheer gown for her day one in Cannes looking like a royal beauty. Her tall frame and toned body complimented the overall look. (Photo: Instagram)
Deepika goes dramatic: In this fuchsia ruffled gown and bold eye make-up, the actress showed how to own the look. At the premiere of the film 'Ash Is The Purest White' she sure made all heads turn. (Photo: AP)
In this easy flowy gown Deepika showed the world - Work can be fun too. Looking at ease and enjoying the sea setting Ms. Padukone sure knows how to set trends. (Photo: Instagram)
Newly wed Sonam Kapoor is 'bride- goals'. Ethereal in this white Ralph and Russo lenhenga choli, Sonam looks every bit of a bride with henna on her hands and designer paranda in her hair. Her first walk as Mrs. Anand Ahuia on the red carpet was a big hit. (Photo: AP)
Sonam carried off this comfortable red striped pant-suit dress like the diva that she is. (Photo: AP)
On her final look at cannes she wore this off-white beige gown which had a hint of sunshine yellow. With minimal make up and million dollar smile she looked at ease and posed like a star. (Photo: AP)
Retro rises: Kangana Ranaut sure knows how to make an impact. In this black shimmery Sabyasachi sari, she reminded us of late 80's Bollywood. (Photo: Instagram)
In this Zuhair Murad sheer gown without any jewellery piece, Kangana looked bold and beautiful. (Photo: Instagram)
This shimmery jumpsuit speaks for itself and we can only think of Kangana who can pull this look off as she has done, with power. The non-conventional actress went the non-conventional way and the result is astounding. (Photo: Instagram)
Huma Qureshi was also present at the prestigious event and for her day one look she wore this beige suit and pant with the right amount of glitter. (Photo: Instagram)
At the screening of Manto, Huma was seen in this Ali Younes Couture gown. The look was seemingly refreshing on Huma. (Photo: Instagram)
For the third and last day at Cannes, Huma went rogue with this cleverly cut gown. Overall the party look was much appreciated. (Photo: Instagram)
Very talented actor and director Nandita Das was present at the Cannes festival with her much awaited film 'Manto' along with the cast.(Photo: AP)
Nandita sported this sari with sleeveless blouse paired with minimal jewellery and make-up for her first day the Cannes. The dusky beauty looked extremely confident and very Indian. (Photo: Instagram)
Mallika Sherawat who has been absent from the Bollywood front since sometime was also present at the Cannes. For her first day she chose this Tony Ward lavender semi-sheer creation. (Photo: Instagram)
