Katrina Kaif Cannes 2015 Dresses, Makeup, Red Hair: What Went Wrong

Katrina Kaif Cannes debut Review: 2 Outfits, Red Hair, Makeup Breakdown

By Contributor: Ananya

For those of us lucky enough to visit the south of France in the summer, could life get any more exciting? The L’Oreal Brand Ambassadors Katrina Kaif, Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attended the coveted event at Cannes 2015  and left us drooling at the surreal experience. Let’s have a look at what Katrina had in store for her Cannes debut this year. We have talked about Aishwarya in detail and Sonam is next. But for now let’s review the red carpet looks of Katrina Kaif

. I think Katrina’s make-over was long over-due. Don’t you agree?

She has been treading the “safe zone” for as long as I can remember; the same hair colour and hair-do, the same make up and her patent and unchanging sartorial picks. Boring! Its good o see her drifting away from her comfort zone and trying something new and refreshing. Did she make a sweeping statement at her debut at the 68th Cannes Film Festival? Let’s find out.

Katrina Kaif in Red Hair on Day 1 at Cannes 2015

For media interviews on day one, Katrina pulled off a surprisingly splendid look. She wore a Milly ’15 monochrome  black and white panelled blouse with a sheer cut-out near the waist. She paired it up with a layered white skirt with an asymmetrical draping flow. A pair of Manolo Blahniks completed the effortless look.

Her new Ombre red hair fell to a side with a slightly off middle parting. She once again opted for the nude lips and smokey eyes. I can say , okay, this was her usual “safe zone” again but there was an exception. She managed to pull off a stunner with the entire ensemble. Her bronzed out skin tone with the sheer translucence of her layered skirt added a sensual edge over the otherwise elegant outfit. She kept her accessories to the minimum and opted for a wide bracelet that sat snugly on her wrist.

Later in the day she changed in to an Oscar de la Renta gown for her debut on the red carpet during the opening ceremony. Kaif wore her red locks on one side. No doubt she was looking elegant and well-balanced out in that strapless ensemble, but… umm…the dress?? If you look closely, you might be able to unearth what the detailing is all about…but..from a distance, it’s just too confused. It just looks like tufts of black wool have woven together and sewn in. The addition is asymmetrical so if you are one who loves symmetry in all things, you will easily get heavily distracted trying to figure out what’s with the dress. And that’s never a good thing.

Though the gown sits elegantly in her frame and accentuates her figure to a great extent, her hair and make up balancing out what ever is missing in that dress, but I can frankly admit, there is something about that dresss I can’t put my finger on. Oscar de la Renta? His designs are amazing..even divine. But this one looks like its a cross between a shabby corset added to a petticoat and a salvaged sweater that was probably chewed up by the designer’s dog. And for heaven’s sake, what are those antennae thingy sticking out of it?! How could she pick this boring thing for her Cannes debut?!

But I must say she did a reasonably okay task of pulling it off. Not a stunner but not completely bad as well. I wish she would do something new. The make-over isn’t helping much here. It just seems so typical and boring (again). Even though she looked beautiful, I wish she would just take a leap and experiment a little. The hair colour does not seem to mesh well with the outfit. I guess that’s what’s making the dress look worse.

Katrina Kaif at Cannes 2015 Red Carpet in Elie Saab: Red Hair, Red Lips, Red Gown, Red Cheeks

Day 2 at Cannes, saw Katrina departing from her signature nude lips and smokey eyes.  She forayed into the domain of bright red lips and sleek straight hair parted in the middle. She wore a red, belted Elie Saab gown.  Now, I know, girls, red does transform and it’s such a pretty red lace on that. But it was such a red carpet-y red. It almost looked like a camouflage outfit on the red carpet because all you could see was her face, and her fingers. She did look elegant and beautiful because of her awesome features and stature, but she was so stiff! I don’t know if it’s just me but isn’t she looking like she’s feeling miserable in that dress? The passion and aura of the red does not seem to transcend the look on her face.

If you like red lipstick then my bet is on L’Oreal Paris Pure Scarleto or Pure Rouge.

Not so much of a spectacular debut, I must say. But what do you girls think of it? Yay or Nay, to Katrina’s Cannes debut this year?

    • You liked it..no problem but please, don't you say any thing offensive about my country or the citizens of my country!
      you should learn to respect others opinion and have you heard something like " If you have nothing good to say then don't say at all."

    • You don't have any right to say like this RR. If you can't respect a nation, you can't respect yourself.

  • Lovely coverage of Cannes 2015 of Katrina Kaif, the red carpet-y red style defiantly gives ideas to fashion designers for wedding day sarees or lehengas.

  • I think this color does not suit her that well, its kind of making her otherwise bright complexion dull !

  • her red hair is just not complementing her!
    She looks good in black hair.. I guess she choose simplistic dresses on the red carpet which didn't make her stand out.
    Last pic of whole red red red.. it was a bad idea indeed as she looks preety without much a do but I hope next time she doesn't colour her hair! :(

  • the red dress on red carpet is totally dangerous .... someone may think her dress as a carpet and walk over her :D :p Just saying .... lovely post dear !

  • She has made a mistake by choosing everything red. I don't know why she forgot to paint her nail color red. I'm wondering what color her heels might be? Too much of anything is good for nothing and in her case it's the color red. She has blended well with the red carpet.

  • People have different opinions. For me Katrina couldnt look more worse than this. You see in India she looks so good and fabolous, god knows what went wrong in choosing her hair color and dress when she went abroad for cannes!

    The red hair, the red pout and the bad costumes, I felt she looked ill and anemic with a fake tan which was unnecessary. But I love this diva in her floral patterns and feminine lip shades which makes her so angelic and wanna be. For cannes, she was a MEH for me..
