Deepika Padukone is a force to be reckoned with and just added another feather to her cap by becoming the first Bollywood star to feature in Louis Vuitton’s global campaign
Deepika Padukone is a renowned name in the industry and has become a force to be reckoned with. Not only is she one of the most sought after actresses of Bollywood and is recognized for a myriad of roles as well as her bold sartorial style. She recently saw the release of her first film of 2020, Chhapaak for which she was immersed in lengthy promotions. Week after week she churned out some of the most covetable looks we have seen to date and is always serving major style inspiration to say the least. And now, the starlet has another feather to add to her cap.
Deepika Padukone has now joined a roster of high-profile actors and models in Louis Vuitton’s pre-fall 2020 campaign, making her the first Bollywood actor to star in a global Louis Vuitton campaign. Nicolas Ghesquière, creative director women’s collections, who is known to have a keen eye for casting unique faces to represent the storied French luxury house, handpicked the Bollywood star to be one of the 24 poster girls and boys to star in Louis Vuitton’s renditions of pulp horror movies and books. Deepika Padukone features in 'Don’t Turn Around', a fiction thriller by Michelle Gagnon.
The Piku actress took to her Instagram account to share the post in which she can be seen clad head to toe in Louis Vuitton. Deepika Padukone can be seen in a checkered shift dress which is cinched at the waist with a contrasting Louis Vuitton belt bag. The starlet has been styled with a grey overcoat, featuring a statement collar. To add a pop of colour to the look, she wears a pair of bright green wellington boots. Deepika Padukone is most certainly putting India on the global map. The starlet joins other famous faces including the likes of Sophie Turner, Léa Seydoux, Alicia Vikander, Chloë Grace Moretz and more in the campaign. Way to go girl!
Meanwhile, on the work front, Deepika Padukone will be seen alongside her husband for the very first time since they tied the knot in Kabir Khan’s ’83. The film is all set to narrate the story of how Kapil Dev lead India to victory in the 1983 World Cup.
