The Hush Post: One of the first Indian beauties to reach the Cannes film festival, our own Queen from the hills Kangana Ranaut made her debut at the French Riveria in a glamorous black embellished sari by ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
Kangana accessorised her look with a teenmaniya necklace, crafted out of rose-cut diamonds, Colombian emeralds and basra pearls. Kangana’s pictures were shared by Sabyasachi and the posts give a detailed description about her debut appearance at the Cannes. This is what Sabyasachi wrote on his insta account: Kangana Ranaut @team_kangana_ranaut @festivaldecannes looks resplendent in an ultra-glamorous rendition of our famous ‘‘Aakash-tara’ (i.e. starry skies) saree. The saree is hand-dyed and embellished with hand-cut sequins that are individually sewn using zardosi technique, to create a metallic, yet fluid fabric.
Kangana will attend the Cannes Film Festival for three days but will walk the red carpet on May 10 and she will also talk about the status of women in films. She is the brand ambassador of Grey Goose, a liquor brand. The actress set off for the French Reviera last night, after attending the wedding of actor Sonam Kapoor.
Kangana has been promoting saree wear back home too as she is seen wearing them regularly at the airport and at functions. To add to the saree glamour is designer Sabyasachi whose penchant for sarees is etched in our minds as his statement had created a row when he had said that women who do not know how to wear sarees should be ashamed of themselves.
The festival began on May 8 and will keep grabbing headlines till it ends on May 19. Apart from Kangana, Huma Qureshi too is present at Cannes. While Deepika will walk at the Cannes red carpet on May 10 and 11, Cannes veteran Aishwarya will be seen at the do on May 12-13 and newly wed Sonam will hit the red carpet on May 14 and 15.
