Kangana Ranaut, who is all set to soak up the sun in the French Riviera, shared details of her Cannes red carpet wardrobe as she revealed her team is currently working on a "unique" look for her, reported mid-day. The 32-year-old actress revealed that her team of stylists are working with the designer label Falguni And Shane Peacock to create the saree of her dreams. "My stylist Ami Patel and I have been brainstorming for a few weeks. We, along with Falguni and Shane Peacock, are designing a unique saree. The idea is to bring the forgotten weaves to the fore so that the world is more aware of our rich fabrics and culture," mid-day quoted Kangana as saying.
The Mental Hai Kya actress also said that expect oodles of "drama" from her Cannes-special sartorial choices: "The clothes I wear will have drama. At the same time, as an Indian actor, I have the responsibility of endorsing our weavers, and wearing outfits that reflect our rich heritage." This year will mark Kangana Ranaut's second trip to the Cannes Film Festival - she represents liquor brand Grey Goose. Earlier, IANS had reported that Kangana's dates for the Cannes itinerary are May 16-May 18.
Even last year, Kangana had styled her retro look with a stunning 'akaash-tara' saree from the studios of Sabyasachi but that wasn't for the red carpet.
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. Her look is accessorised with a Sabyasachi batua and the 'teenmaniya' necklace, crafted out of rose-cut diamonds, Colombian emeralds and basra pearls from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection.
