The Cocktail actress Diana Penty made her Cannes debut this year and is making headlines, thanks to her fashion quotient. The actress showed up in a golden tassel dress by Celia Kritharioti and paired them with high boots in the same colour.
Talking about her styling sense Diana says, “Fashion is an expression of individuality and expressing what one feels within. I always wear what I feel I look best in, and what I think suits me. Trolls don’t bother me anymore. If I believe in my choices, no one else can bring me down.” Actors like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut have uplifted their styling quotient at this prestigious film festival. While some have been gutsy with their outfits some have played it safe.
When asked about who among is her favourite, Diana quickly responds, “I think it would have to be Vidya Balan. I love that she chose to be her effortless self. Her choice to stick to traditional Indian sarees on the red carpet was not only a brave one, but she also managed to carry her looks off with utmost elegance and perfection. She represented our country perfectly, both sartorially as well as through her work.”
Vidya Balan had picked a traditional saree for her Cannes debut in 2013 and made headlines for showcasing the Indian style at an international platform.
Diana, who was last seen in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, aspires to take her film someday at this prestigious film festival. She says, “The Cannes Film Festival is one of the biggest film festivals in the world that has, over the decades, gained the reputation of being one of the most important venues to preview incredible new films and documentaries, exchange ideas and discuss cinema. It’s a melting pot of some of the best talents from around the world. Who wouldn’t want their film to be showcased on a platform such as this? Any actor’s wish would be for their film to do well, to be acknowledged across cultures and countries and to gain recognition.”
