We got in touch with Masoom and asked her why she chose Malhotra to design her outfit and here’s what she had to say, “When you represent India on the red carpet, you’ve got to wear India, so my outfit naturally had to be the work of Manish Malhotra. I wore a custom made pearl white chiffon stitched sari with silver sequin embroidery for this day. It was beautifully paired with a matching textured blouse with silver sequin-Swarovski hints and an exaggerated drape on the shoulders. The only designer I could think of for this Cannes’ red carpet sartorial dream was him – Manish Malhotra.”
The stylish Instagram star accessorised her look with some classy jewellery from Boucheron, Maison founded in 1858 and established at the 26 Place Vendome since 1893.
Masoom also spoke about how it felt to walk the Cannes’ red carpet, she said, “It was an incomparably exhilarating experience! This was my second time walking the Cannes red carpet and honestly, it felt like the first time all together. I enjoyed the first time but this time, I was filled with pride of being able to represent my country. I was proud to be wearing an Indian designer and representing my country’s unique fashion on such a massive global platform. And, my red carpet outfit totally echoed and reflected my mission of taking Indian fashion global!”
We loved how Masoom rocked an Indian ensemble at the international red carpet, nothing can beat a sari, right?
