Oscars 2023: Deepika Padukone made her Academy Awards debut this year as a presenter and boy, we are going to remember it for years to come! While we cannot wait to see the category that the Pathaan star will present, Deepika made the wait for her appearance on the Oscars 2023 red carpet worth the wait. The actress turned heads with her stylish outfit.
For the prestigious night, Deepika picked out a gorgeous off-shoulder black gown which she teamed with a black pair of gloves and a statement necklace. She tied her hair back into a classy bun.
