Primarily a film festival, and it should be respected as such, Cannes in the past few years has notoriously become one of the highlight in the annual calendar due to its glitzy red carpet. Hwever, Cannes this time around was rather a less dramatic affair…. what is with red carpet events this year… however regular fashionistas gave us moments that were definitely worth watching what they would wear next on the red carpet. From Sonam Kapoor to Julianne Moore… even Katrina Kaif made her debut at the red carpet at this edition of Cannes.

Well there was another jury member too from India and that too for short films. It was none other than Nandita Das. Nandita is not new to the Cannes judging table, but the fiesty actress and director refuses to be led by uncomfortable choices and glams it up with what she feels she is comfortable in, and in a simple way definitely makes a splash without much of an additional ‘designer’ tag.
Nandita comes across as a self assured individual and that comes across in her wardrobe choices too. Comprising mostly of handwoven Saris, my fav has to be the yellow one she wore at the closing ceremony. She looked resplendant in the yellow color. A brilliant choice for her, she carries it off as much elan as Sonam did the gown. The side swept hair and gold accessories finshed up her look. I really like how she pulls of her earthy choices with equal glam and no fuss compared to others who attended the festival and faltered at one point or other. She just stuck to her guns and made sure that its a film festival.
Even for her lunches, Nandita went the casual route with denim and kurti with a handwoven scarf thrown in. LOVE iT
