The two ladies were seen at the Cannes film festival promoting their upcoming film Shortcut Romeo which also has Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead

Ameesha Patel and Puja Gupta were seen making an appearance on the red carpet at the 66th Cannes International Festival. While Ameesha was seen taking the traditional route, and surprisingly so, Puja settled for a western look.

If you ask us, Ms Patel was a breath of fresh air in her desi avatars and that too sans her itsy-bitsy blouse. She kept it simple and sweet, and refrained from providing a generous view of her cleavage. She chose Manish Malhotra creations to add the ‘glam and glow’ effect to her style at the do. While we love what she wore at the All Is Lost premiere – a blue lehenga and a long ethnic top is a traditional delight, the white anarkali she chose for the portrait session was a tad thanda in comparison.

Go Goa Gone babe Puja Gupta was also there to make the most of the soiree and plugging her film. The Rahul Mishra high-collared jacket which she teamed with satin pants looks like a mix of classy and royal. She could have done away with those simple nude pumps though ‘cause it doesn’t match up to the exoticness of the ensemble. Even her Gauri and Nainika dusty rose gown at the All Is Lost premiere is a li’l too ‘simple and subtle’.

We don’t believe that we are saying this but Ameesha impresses hands down, she got the fashion formula right….finally!
