    Certainly. Nandita scores over others with her innate style.

    Seeing her on HHC is always a sight for sore eyes. Love the simplicity of the suit. Please feature Ameesha as well, she shocked the hell out of me (in a good way) ;)

      You could put together an ensemble like this in any Fab India store in India.

    What a lovely woman, and what a nice colour for a sunny outdoor shoot!

    And for all the people preaching about supporting Indian actresses wearing Indian attire at Cannes, if they are as effortless as Nandita, why wouldn’t we?

    Now this is what I say true Indian attire, it is so simple yet elegant.
    And of course its on Nandita, which makes it more than perfect!

    I wish she wore dupatta on one shoulder instead.

    So adorable. I love the yellow and the simplicity of the outfit. So effortless. She looks like she took 10 mins to get ready. So agree with PnP’s comment on how elaborate and overdone everyone else has been looking so far. (Think Aishwarya’s star trek hairstyle or Vidya’s elaborate pearls, earrings, matching handbag.. blah blah). I LOVE this woman!

    How does she do it? So simple yet so striking and beautiful!!!! Her confidence may be! I truly think that she is the best dressed Indian in cannes 2013!

    This weekend I plan to purchase yards and yards of yellow silk and visit my seamstress. Just lovely.

    so pretty. Indian without the gimmicks. The color make me smile. I love her dupatta. Does anyone know where to buy stylish dupaattas (only) in india.

    Love it when fashion takes a hike and elegance takes over ! :)

    Nice but I wish we had full length photos of her in saris, esp the red one. I guess the paps don’t consider her worth the trouble – not true, she has a devoted fan base.

    So simple yet so refreshing and beautiful!
    She always comes across as confident and reassured. I’ve never got that feeling from any of the other bollywood red carpet vaterans.

    LOVE the look…color,her comfort,bindi,her casaulness…oh wait isn’t it too casual for cannes??

    1. judgevik at | | Reply

      This is for the photocall – which is a more casual sessoin

    And to those who asked “who is going to remember the simple attires of the Nandita Das’ and the Sharmila Tagores?!” This is for you!

    You dont need an army of stylists and designers to look good. Refreshing change and may her tribe grow

  34. kasthuri at | | Reply

    Simple and yet event appropriate thanks to the fabric used. The women next to her looks more casually dressed even.

  35. dee at | | Reply

    Beautiful!! That colour takes her places!
    effortless style! Takes a major truckload of confidence to be so ‘simply’ dressed at a major world event!

    Love the colour!! Whatever she has been wearing is traditional, simple (no unnecessary bling, reams of embroidery, etc.) and beautiful. Everything is working. She looks great!

    Nandita can never look anything but LOVELY ! thank god we have her in Cannes ! Look at what the rest of them are up to – and then we have this indian godess to save our face.

  39. suhani at | | Reply

    This Cannes 2013 is the best for India ! Not for Amisha patel going there … :P kidding …
    But Vidya Balan and Nandita (Our real Awesomely freaking Indian Beauties) representing us… who chose to wear what actual indian wear in their real life at different occasion ! Bravo and Proud of them .

    I am also excluding Aishwarya as I have never felt she is Indian . For India , she is that unattainable beauty queen who has only wore gowns untill now.

  40. Mayuri at | | Reply

    Wow! Simply wow! Love the bindi, what little I can see of the earrings, and the outfit. Hell! I LOVE the look, head to toe!

    The true Indian who has Beauty with Brains !!!

  43. Priyanka at | | Reply

    In my opinion (not that it counts) Nandita has single handedly made me so proud to be an Indian.. You don’t need designer clothes and accessories to look stunning and vivacious, she’s what I call – ethereal.. I think everyone else (few exceptions) except her has been a complete let down at Cannes. Simplicity and elegance is very hard to attain and she gets it right each time. Everyone else looks like gimmicky and ready to perform circus actions.. Its quite ridiculous the way some folks were dressed..

    I just luv Nanditas Das n her outfit n d color superb. She looks beautyful.Who says without make up n desiner outfit makes woman look stunning see how Nandita Das is looking i have seen almost all the pics of her n now wearing this dress she has proved she follows ‘Simplicity is the best policy’. Others Amisha, Aishwarya n other Indian women who were part of Cannes doest represent India (Vidya for some Extent) but Nandita she has proved she is the true Indian. Nandita u look stunning hats off to u. We Indians are proud of u n Thanx so much for representing the true Indian culture.
