Deepika Padukone walked the red carpet of Cannes Film Festival on May 17 wearing a sheer purple Marchesa dress. She made an appearance at Cannes for a beauty brand, Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan too are all set to walk as ambassadors for the same brand.
Sonam, who is known for her impeccable fashion choices, at the launch of her fashion label Rheson with sister Rhea Kapoor was asked about Deepika's appearance at the Cannes Film Festival. To this, Sonam said that she hopes Deepika is having a good time at the internationally acclaimed festival. Further adding that she is no one to advise Deepika as the actress has walked many international red carpets.
Sonam said, "I hope she has a good time. I don't think I should be giving any advice to someone who has already walked several international red carpets."
When Sonam was further questioned about her preparations for the Cannes red carpet, the actress quipped, "I just believe in being myself. My sister styles me, but we haven't really prepped that much this time. We have a brand that we are launching, I am shooting for two films, she is making 'Veere Di Wedding'. For the past couple of years, we decided not to pressurise ourselves and just have a good time and we have got the best reviews because of it. So we don't think about it too much. It's not about the status quo, the status symbol of being on the red carpet."
"We are going for a brand. If it was for a movie, I would've been so stressed out I would faint on the red carpet. But because it's for a make-up brand, I enjoy doing it. It's about being beautiful and you look beautiful only if you're happy inside and confident. That is something which is very empowering and that's what my sister and I are trying to promote through our brand and through every appearance that we make that it's okay to be yourself," continued Sonam.
