By Eloise Alba The prestigious 66th Cannes Film Festival kicked off its 12-day celebration with a fashionable (and rainy) start. Despite the occasional downpour, Paparazzi were on standby at just about every public location hoping to catch glimpses of the highly anticipated celebrities expected to grace the red carpet. Among the few snapshots captured were that of actresses Sonam Kapoor and Freida Pinto, who were photographed earlier in the day bonding and enjoying the first day of festivities. Kapoor wore a black and white colour-blocked sari trouser by Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty of Huemm, accessorized with Suhanie Pittie earrings and Lanvin flats. Pinto on the other hand, opted for a green and black knee-length dress and kept the look understated with classic black pumps. The two are at the French Riviera as brand ambassadors of cosmetic line, LOréal, which is a sponsor of the Festival.
