Deepika Padukone who made a stunning entry at the extravagant Paris Fashion Week last year has decided to give the event a miss due to the recent world health crisis i.e. coronavirus outbreak in France. France has already confirmed 130 cases and two deaths from COVID-19 and teh vent is held at the fashion capital of the world, Paris.
The actor was invited by globally celebrated lifestyle brand Louis Vuitton. "Deepika Padukone was scheduled to travel to France to attend Louis Vuitton's FW2020 Show at the ongoing Paris Fashion Week but has had to cancel her trip with news coming in that the coronavirus epidemic has now entered a new stage in France," the actor's spokesperson said in a statement.
Last year for her first day Deepika wore a deep tube, off-shoulder gown with a bow in the front in floral print. The Cocktail actress gave a vintage twist to her attire with her hair tied in a neat bun with a matching hairband and big shades that will remind you of the fashion trends of the 70s. On the accessories and makeup front, the leggy lass went for a chunky golden layered chain, winked eyeliner, neatly done lashes and nude lips. She rounded up her look with a long brown jacket, a Dior clutch and fishnet boots.
The outbreak of Corona virus has posed a serious concern at fashion gala events and film festival held in France. Milan Fashion Week was mostly shut down due to an outbreak of coronavirus cases in Italy last week. Holywood actresses Bella Hadid and Gwyneth Paltrow wore masks on the plane. Many brands hosting resees of their collections either canceled or postponed their press appointments.
On the work front, Deepika will next be seen in "'83" as Romi Devi. She is also working on the Hindi remake of Hollywood film "The Intern" and on Shakun Batra's next with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday.
