This may be our favourite Cannes International Film Festival yet. Vidya Balan, Amitabh Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Freida Pinto sightings all on the first day!

vidya balan cannes 2013 arrival in sabyasachi

This year, Vidya Balan is a member of the Cannes Festival jury, along with Ang Lee, Steven Speilberg, Nicole Kidman and other cinematic geniuses. She’s already appeared at three photo call/red carpets wearing Sabyasachi (of course) and Amrapali Jewelry. She looked beautiful in a classic Indian avatar, but we wish she would switch up the hair and makeup. And wear a v-neck blouse or something.

How dapper is Amitabh Bachchan in his polka dot bow-tie and sequin blazer? It’s a risky look and we’re glad he tried it. As always, we love his glasses (Tom Ford?). Our biggest complaint? The jacket he wore to The Great Gatsby photo call earlier in the day. Why? Super sad face.

See all three of Vidya Balan’s Sabyasachi looks, as well as Amitabh Bachchan’s ugly jacket choice, in the slideshow below.
