It is mainly about what a celebrity is wearing on the red carpet. Whether it was traditional or western, what kind of hairdo and makeup they wore?

Shabana Azmi born on 18 September 1950 is an Indian actress of film, television and theater. She has appeared in over 120 Hindi and Bengali films in both mainstream and independent cinema. She is the wife of poet and screenwriter Javed Akhtar.
Shabana Azmi’s picture from Cannes 1976 is going viral. This picture of herself with Smita Patil and director Shyam Benegal from 1976 Cannes, where they were promoting their film Nishant. She then tweeted, “Apart from the simplicity of the photographs that is striking, Shabana Azmi’s message is a reminder that film festivals should be about films too, right?”
At that time film festival was all about promoting movies and cinema but nowadays focus is more on the looks of celebrities than on movies. She posted that picture just remind us all of those good old days when cinema was the thing that mattered the most.
