Cannes 2022: Deepika Padukone Represents Indian Culture in Sabyasachi’s Golden-Black Striped Shimmery Saree With Golden Matha Patti

Cannes 2022: Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone is one of the jury members at the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival. For the opening ceremony, the gorgeous diva opted for a never-seen-before Sabyasachi clothing and high jewellery. On the red carpet, Deepika wore a sequin golden-black striped 6-yard-garment that represented Indian Bengal Tiger. Conceptualised by Sabyasachi, the saree celebrates the heritage of Indian crafts and techniques through a modern lens. The golden and black stripes on Deepika Padukone’s saree have been block printed and hand embroidered by some of India’s finest craftspeople at the Sabyasachi atelier.
