Deepika Padukone has officially cemented her status as a Louis Vuitton girlie: The Bollywood superstar attended the 95th Academy Awards Sunday night wearing custom LV and matching Cartier jewels.
Padukone stunned on the Oscars red carpet in a glamorous black gown reminiscent of Old Hollywood with a classic mermaid silhouette, long sleeves, and strapless sweetheart neckline. She paired her look with a dazzling teardrop diamond necklace—which her rep tells Marie Claire was one she personally selected from Cartier (she's an ambassador for the luxury jeweler)—and a matching bracelet and ring.

It’s no surprise Padukone chose the French design house for her inaugural Oscars; she was named a global ambassador for the brand in May 2022 (becoming the first Indian to work with LV in that capacity).
LV tells Marie Claire that the busier floor-length dress with gathered bottom and pleated sleeves took nearly 350 hours to make and 15 meters of silk black velvet to craft. The look was completed with black stretch gloves and a matching belt.
Here, Louis Vuitton shares a sketch of her Oscars look as well as some never-before-shared snaps of Padukone and her dress, pre-awards show.
The 37-year-old is presenting during the ceremony—making her only the third Indian actor to be invited to do so. Other presenters tonight include Emily Blunt and Zoë Saldaña.
