The Dirty Picture babe commanded media attention with her sizzling presence at the French Riviera

Just when we were wondering what Vidya ‘the ever vivacious’ Balan will be wearing at the 66th Cannes Film Festival, the 34-year-old star made her stunning presence felt at the red carpet in a gorgeous maroon outfit, much to the photographers’ delight. Just look at her! Isn’t she class personified in an outfit that is a fine blend of classiness and stylishness?

Created by ace designer – need we mention who – Sabyasachi Mukherjee, this maroon and black lehenga with a high neck, fully-covered choli made Vidya look every bit of a royal star. The detailed work on her dupatta and the intricately designed hemline of her lehenga added a touch Indian sophistication to the look.

The moment the Kahaani actor stepped out of a plush car, press photographers at the gala could not stop clicking and Vidya glowed like a true Indian queen in those unstoppable flashlights. The perfect combination of a subtle makeup and designer jewellery only accentuated Vidya’s calm, composed and confident personality. She just oozed that ‘ooh la la’ factor with her kohled eyes and that warm smile.

Vidya has been invited at the Cannes 2013 festival to be a part of the nine-member jury. She will be staying at the prestigious Martinez Hotel throughout the festival. And with a hot star like her around, the dignitaries are definitely going to feel the heat!
