There’s no denying the sartorial prowess of Arab designers, which has stars around the world reaching for their pieces time and again. Now, Deepika Padukone has become the latest celebrity to champion talent from the Middle East when she made attendance at the star-studded Cartier event in Madrid this week. To celebrate the brand’s new high jewelry with Yasmine Sabri, Rami Malek, and Annabelle Wallis, Padukone wore a dreamy white gown by celebrity-loved Bahraini label Monsoori, helmed by designer Shaima Al Monsoori.

Two distinct fabrics—one with an iridescent satin finish, and the other, a lightweight tulle—distinguished the piece which came in a peplum silhouette. Featuring a plunging neckline, the sleeveless bodice flared out at the waist in petal-like shapes, sitting on top of the skirt. Diamond jewelry, befittingly from Cartier, accessorized the Indian actor’s look, while her signature updo with tousled waves complemented the elegant number. Scroll through the post below for a closer look at her ensemble.

The outfit marks the second time Deepika Padukone has opted for an Arab designer’s creation for an international event this season. Just last month, the 36-year-old walked the red carpet at the 75th Cannes Film Festival wearing a custom dress by Saudi label Ashi Studio, another favorite in her book. While this marks her first time wearing Monsoori, it is worth noting that the brand has found a fan in many A-list stars, including Beyoncé, who wore the label in Black is King, Jhené Aiko, Bebe Rexha, and more.

After breaking the internet in an Ashi Studio dress at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Deepika Padukone has once again looked to a dramatic piece by the label this year. Today, the Indian star and jury member walked the red carpet for the premiere of The Innocent wearing a custom-made saffron dress from Saudi designer Ashi’s namesake brand. The strapless orange taffeta gown featured a floor-grazing hem and a weightless draped detail around the shoulders.

The designer, who has previously featured on Vogue Arabia’s cover, has long been the go-to for stars looking to make a statement on the red carpet. This year alone, Ashi Studio’s pieces have been worn by celebrities including actor Kat Graham and models Izabel Goulart and Jourdan Dunn. As for Padukone, her ruffled pink dress by Ashi Studio worn in 2018 went down as one of her most extravagant looks, and cemented her place among the most anticipated stars at the Cannes Film Festival.

Mere days after being announced as the very first Indian ambassador of Louis Vuitton, Deepika Padukone sat front row alongside Miranda Kerr and Emma Roberts at the French fashion house’s cruise 2023 show in San Diego, California. Dressed in a blue and yellow striped piece and slouchy black statement bomber, the Bollywood superstar made a strong case for elevated cool girl style, topping off her look with a dewy beauty look, disheveled top knot, knee-high boots and brown Louis Vuitton bag. Check out her look below.

If you haven’t been following Deepika Padukone’s style trajectory over the years, however, it’s important to note that the actor has been making waves with her sartorial picks for over a decade now. Having made her film debut back in 2007 with blockbuster Om Shanti Om, Padukone has slowly and steadily risen to become one of the industry’s biggest names on both, the silver screen and the red carpet. With help from stylist and trusted friend Shaleena Nathani, the actor manages to bring something new to the table each time she steps out.
Given her Indian roots, it comes as no surprise that Padukone often uses key events to champion her favorite local designers. Sabyasachi Mukherjee‘s jewel-toned saris are an all-time favorite, as are the intricately embellished creations of designer duo Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. Arab couturiers are another top pick in Padukone’s book. Over the years, the 36-year-old has been spotted in some of the region’s most-loved labels, walking the Cannes Film Festival red carpet in Ashi Studio‘s ruffled fuchsia number, attending 2021’s Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah dressed in a coral creation by Dubai-based label Michael Cinco, and even donning a sparkling red Zuhair Murad gown at her wedding reception back in 2018.
From the international set, it turns out that Deepika Padukone’s latest Louis Vuitton look isn’t the only one that’s topped trending charts. A look back through the actor’s style files reveals a series of noteworthy ensembles by the greats, including a gold-detailed ebony Alexander McQueen gown from 2014, a preppy Michael Kors moment from 2017, that earthy brown Dior maxi doused in prints from 2019, and of course, the artfully sculpted Zac Posen gown she wore for the Met Gala the same year.
From silky saris to elaborate gowns and sharp pantsuits, Deepika Padukone’s closet is a lesson in versatility. Below, we take you through some of her best style moments over the years.

As the long-awaited 59th Venice Biennale took off, Louis Vuitton held a gala dinner in the city, which was attended by some of the biggest names in the fashion and entertainment industries. The event celebrated the future renovation of the Galleria Giorgio Franchetti alla Ca’ d’Oro, which the French maison will contribute to, in partnership with the Venetian Heritage Foundation and star architect Peter Marino. Hosted by Daniele Ferrara of Veneto’s Regional Directorate for Museums, the dinner saw an emotional Marino giving his welcome speech, shedding a tear of joy over Louis Vuitton’s support to the Venetian Heritage Foundation.
Among the guests in attendance were Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, Isabelle Huppert, Tahar Rahim, Valeria Golino, Nicoletta Romanoff, Giorgia Tordini, Candela Pelizza, and Paolo Stella, who sported head-to-toe Louis Vuitton outfits. Padukone had an especially standout look with an elegant vest jacket and a shirt with a Victorian-inspired ruffle collar, which was paired with olive green bermuda shorts and black boots. The star held a Dauphine handbag with the Maisons’s jacquard ‘Since 1854’ textile to signify the year the French luxury house was founded.

Deepika Padukone has become the latest celebrity to nail the denim-on-denim look. For the promotions of her latest film Gehraiyaan, the Indian actor took the lesser-seen athleisure side of her work wardrobe to the next level in an Adidas x Ivy Park ensemble.
While the outfit is a bold choice in itself, it fits right in with the actor’s penchant for making the extraordinary pieces sourced by stylist Shaleena Nathani her own. The 36-year-old wore a denim bustier-style bodysuit with exposed seams from the two brands’ collaborative collection, featuring Adidas’ signature three white stripes on each side. Adding a touch of comfort to the look, the corset was paired with oversized denim trousers, held at the waist with a wide elasticated band and covered in a wavy pattern.

The Adidas ambassador‘s athletic outfit was made complete by styling her hair up in an updo with a few strands left loose for an effortlessly messy look. Going for a fresh beauty look, Padukone’s lips were painted in a bright coral shade to contrast the blue denim, while her eyes featured thick, wingless eyeliner, and cheekbones lightly defined with bronze contour.

If you’ve been on the hunt for a weekend look that’s equal parts comfortable and striking, Deepika Padukone’s latest pick for the Gehraiyaan promo tour may just hit the nail on the head. Want to elevate it further? All you need is your favorite pair of gold hoops, and you’re good to go.

As an actor, Deepika Padukone has achieved remarkable success, with national and international awards to her name. And as the daughter of a professional badminton player, athleticism runs in her blood. It shone through when she played the sport competitively growing up, and it remains perceptible to this day in her endeavors. Further proof comes via her recently announced partnership with Adidas. Teaming up with the sportswear giant as its brand ambassador, the Indian star and mental health advocate aims to further her and the label’s common goal of encouraging women to believe that “impossible is nothing.”
After keeping the collaboration under wraps for weeks before its surprise reveal, there was only one thing left to do for Padukone: Take it all in at the brand’s first flagship store in the Middle East, in Dubai. For the star, the emirate is a “home away from home.” The Chhapaak actor arrived at The Dubai Mall, commanding attention and nailing athleisure in a bright red and pink tracksuit, with the sleeves rolled up and a jacket casually tied around her waist. While to most, the obvious footwear choice for a tracksuit worn for an early morning appearance at the world’s largest mall would be sneakers, Padukone opted for a pair of high heels, with one red and one pink on each foot.
Vogue Arabia sat down with the star to discuss everything from the partnership, and sports as a part of her life, to how the conversation on mental health needs to change, and her advice to aspiring sportswomen.

Vogue Arabia: How has playing sports shaped you as a person and as an actor?
Deepika Padukone: It’s played a huge role in the person I am today—the way I conduct my life, and the way I think. It’s taught me how to handle success and failure, how to be competitive in the right spirit. It has also prepared me for life, and I feel like no other experience in life would have trained me or taught me the values that sports have taught me.
What are some of the best life lessons you learned playing sports?
It teaches you so much, and I think I was fortunate to have participated in individual sports as well as team sports. It’s taught me everything from team spirit, handling success and failure, and how not to be impulsive, to the ability to analyze if you performed well: To take a step back, and analyze what you did right or what hasn’t gone well, and reflect, “What could I have done differently?” The list is endless: it’s patience, perseverance, dedication, and determination. I always say that I think only an athlete knows what the life of an athlete is like, and the values that it teaches you. I can say it in words but I think that feeling for me comes from my gut and there’s only that much I can put in words.
What brought about this partnership with Adidas?
When they reached out, I was more than happy to come on board because we all know Adidas is an iconic brand. Also for me, it seems like a natural extension of my personality because I’ve been an athlete. I conduct my everyday life like an athlete, and I think like one, so for me to associate with a brand that has similar values was a natural fit. I’m glad they think that I’m someone who embodies everything that they believe in and everything that they stand for and in the last couple of weeks ever since we’ve announced this association, keeping it under wraps was very very hard. But ever since we made this announcement, I think people are quite excited.

How do you think the conversation on mental health has changed since you opened up about yours?
I think it has changed a lot. Honestly, I give credit to the people for being so open in terms of embracing it, accepting it, empathizing with my journey, and wanting to bring about change when it comes to mental health. Especially in India, where nobody spoke about mental health until I did, unfortunately. In the last five years, we have seen the country celebrating World Mental Health Day, and everyone talking about mental health in living rooms, and in the media you see celebrities being more open about their own experience. This is why I think we have come a long long way.
What more needs to change?
I think we still have a long way to go. Especially if we compare ourselves to Australia, for example, or to the UK and US where I think the conversation today is far more developed. But I certainly see ourselves geared up and headed in that direction as far as the openness to seek help goes, and I think the stigma has also reduced quite a bit.
What advice would you give to aspiring sportswomen?
Well, I think if you’re a sportswoman, I’d say you have already chosen the right profession. You are on a journey where you are going to learn some of your best life lessons, and patience. I think patience is also one of the things that sports have taught me. I realize this when I see today’s generation, compounded with social media, where you want instant gratification and everything has to happen now. I think sport teaches you to wait for good things, and that you have to work hard for them. Especially if you want to leave behind a legacy, and achieve something that’s permanent. Otherwise, I think one day will be up the next day would be down. I think if you really want to go up the ladder the right way, hard work and perseverance combined with patience is the key.

What stands out to you about women in the region?
I think their spirit and sense of joy. That is something I’ve been able to see even while just walking around. I think there’s a certain spirit in everyone. I’m unable to articulate what that is but it definitely embodies strength and determination.
Who is your ultimate fitness inspiration?
I can’t think of one person, but I admire people who are more disciplined and I think that comes at any age. I know people who are 13 years old and who are 75 years old that are extremely disciplined. When I say discipline, I don’t mean to say that you don’t enjoy your life. I think there are some people who take it to an all-new extreme, and I’m sure it works for them. But I think a subtle amount of discipline is what encompasses fitness. Whether it is being disciplined in your nutrition, sleep, exercise, or your mental health, I think, for me, that is fitness. I see a lot of people in the gym who have amazing bodies, and spend extra hours in the gym. I think all of that is great, but are you truly fit? I think only an athlete understands the value of true fitness. It is not just one aspect, it’s a lifestyle, and think I admire people who live by the same.
Now that you are able to travel once again, what are the fitness essentials you always have in your suitcase?
I think, to begin with, considering I come from the land of yoga, the biggest advantage is that you don’t have to carry anything with you when you can do it absolutely anywhere. I can be in my hotel room and do a couple of asanas or a workout. Currently, the phase that I am going through is, of course, a beautiful yoga phase. I also think a pair of great running or walking shoes are essential when you are traveling. That’s the easiest thing to do—you just throw in a pair of shoes, and also now with this whole athleisure trend, it’s multipurpose. I can wake up in the morning, and go for a walk or for a run, and I can wear the same pair of shoes and walk around in the mall, and in the same pair of shoes go to a restaurant. That’s what makes it functional but at the same time fashionable, and also practical when you’re traveling.
