Actress Sara Ali Khan is making sure that she unleashes her fashionable avatar at Cannes 2023 in the best way. After making her Cannes debut in an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga on Tuesday, the star stole attention at the opening night party in a black and gold outfit.
She looked gorgeous in the black strapless dress with gold embellishment. The actress accentuated her ensemble with a matching black purse. At the party, she bumped into model Naomi Campbell. The duo posed for a happy picture at the bash.
While hitting the Cannes red carpet, Sara spoke to shutterbugs where she proudly represented Indian culture. She said, “It’s (outfit) a traditional and modern Indian handmade design by Abu and Sandeep (Khosla). I’ve always been proud of my Indianness. It embodies who I am, it’s fresh, it’s modern, and also has traditional roots.”
The designers through an Instagram post wrote that the Kedarnath actress arrived at the red carpet in an exquisite hand-embroidered multi-panel skirt. “The intricate shadow work embroidery, adorning each unique panel, showcases a mesmerizing calendar of designs from our archives of couture down the years,” they added.
