Aastha and Sanjyot at cannes

Aastha Shah and Sanjyot Keer are preparing to make their careers grand debut as they're all set to walk on the Cannes 2024 red carpet.

Breaking barriers and redefining beauty standards, Aastha Shah is poised to make a powerful statement on one of the world's most renowned stages. Her journey to Cannes is not just about fashion, it's a testament to resilience, courage, and the celebration of diversity. As the first Indian vitiligo person to grace the Cannes red carpet, she represents a beacon of hope and inspiration for millions around India. Vitiligo, a condition characterized by the loss of pigment in the skin, affects individuals of all backgrounds. However, societal norms often dictate narrow standards of beauty, leaving those with vitiligo underrepresented in mainstream media and fashion. Aastha Shah's groundbreaking appearance at Cannes challenges these norms, advocating for inclusivity and acceptance.

For Aastha Shah, this moment is not just a personal triumph but a platform to amplify the voices of those who have felt marginalized due to their appearance. Her presence at Cannes symbolizes the triumph of individuality and the power of self-love."I am honored and humbled to represent not only myself but also the countless individuals who have been made to feel invisible because of their differences," says Aastha Shah and also expresses her inspiration. "The one and only Vitiligo Queen, Winnie Harlow. She’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. The way she walks and wears her skin with grace is what I have looked up to always. She’s my biggest inspiration”. As Aastha Shah prepares to make history at Cannes, she carries with her the hopes and dreams of a generation longing for acceptance and representation. Her journey serves as a reminder that true beauty knows no bounds and that diversity is the cornerstone of a vibrant and inclusive society.
