The 76th Festival de Cannes is scheduled to take place from May 16 to May 27. Each year, numerous Indian celebrities grace the renowned film festival on the French Riviera, showcasing their exquisite ensembles on the red carpet. This year, Anushka Sharma will make her debut at the festival and join Oscar-winner Kate Winslet in honouring women in cinema. Emmanuel Lenain, the French Ambassador to India, revealed Sharma’s attendance earlier this month.
The Cannes red carpet has eyes from all over the world on it. Now that Sharma is all set to join the ranks of Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor, and Deepika Padukone in representing India at the prestigious red carpet, we can’t help but wonder what she would wear for her much-anticipated debut.

With her elegant and sophisticated fashion choices, the actress effortlessly embodies the essence of Dior’s timeless and feminine allure. Sharma’s ability to seamlessly blend classic and contemporary elements beautifully mirrors the French fashion house’s commitment to reinventing tradition while staying true to its rich heritage.
