Check out Mallika Sherawat at Cannes Film Fest

Mallika Sherawat always manages to make news at Cannes — especially for her ensembles. Many were disappointed that she opted for a subdued look sporting a Victoria Beckham outfit at a recent event. But finally, she’s stuck by the book. At the Cannes premiere of Madagascar 3, she went a step further in her red carpet style — she wore a nudehued plunging backless dress that was held together by a thin blingy belt at the waist. As for makeup and hair, she went ’70s, choosing winged eyeliner and a bouffant a la Saira Banu. While she chose to keep the look simple, her outfit was definitely a better and more daring choice than some of the dresses she wore the previous two years at Cannes. But whether her regular red carpet appearances would fetch her more roles in Hollywood is the big question. Those who thought that Mallika had gone understated this year at Cannes now stand corrected. She always makes sure her outfits make an oomph-y statement!
