Deepika Padukone left for the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week. However, before she plays a pivotal part in the jury, the actor made her way to the Louis Vuitton 2023 Cruise Show in San Diego, California. The actor was spotted in a quirky black jacket and knee-high boots paired with a brown handbag.
Deepika is the first Indian to be signed on as a ‘House Ambassador’ by Louis Vuitton. The brand recently unveiled its Dauphine bag campaign, starring Deepika along with Emma Stone and Zhou Dongy.
Deepika is also part of the eight-member competition jury of the Cannes Film Festival along with actor-filmmaker Rebecca Hall and Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi. French actor Vincent Lindon will be the president of the jury that also includes Swedish actor Noomi Rapace, Italian actor-director Jasmine Trinca, French filmmaker-actor Ladj Ly, filmmaker Jeff Nichols and director-screenwriter Joachim Trier from Norway. The jury will reward one of the 21 films in competition with the coveted Palme d’Or during the closing ceremony on May 28.
Deepika was earlier the chairperson of the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival for two years. The actor was last seen in Shakun Batra’s Gehraiyaan and had made her Hollywood debut with the 2017 film xxx: The Return of Xander Cage, with Vin Diesel.
