Leading content creator and actress Dolly Singh made a show-stopping debut at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
Indian content creator and actress Dolly Singh stunned the carpet of one of the most prestigious events with her look making the Indian creator community proud. She sported a custom-made elegant outfit by ace couturiers Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla which comprised of a hand-embroidered 1980-inspired conical blouse bejewelled with pearl embellishments and an ivory-hued sarong-skirt with a 3.5 meters long ruffled dramatic trail for her first day at the French Riviera.
Sandeep Khosla states, “The outfit was inspired by Zeenat Aman’s Satyam Sundaram. We have been working on this conical blouse for a while and it’s a classic. Dolly is an exotic girl who isn’t conventional by any standards and emotes beautifully. She carried off this outfit to the fullest and looked every bit of a Bollywood diva.”
Dolly Singh states, “The outfit celebrated Indian craftsmanship and took over 150 working hours to curate. It was a beautiful blend of contemporary and traditional elements that was thoughtfully created by the fashion maestros Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. I am grateful that I could in my own humble way represent Indian culture on my first ever red-carpet walk.”
Mohit Rai states, “The idea was to curate something that seamlessly marries avant-garde fashion and Indian couture craftsmanship. Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla collaborated with me to create this custom look that borrows from their archival work with a touch of innovativeness!”
She opted for a fresh look with minimalistic make-up and natural curls. She was styled by Mohit Rai and adorned with elegant fine jewellery by Burma Paris and shoes by ALEViì Milano.
She walked the red carpet for Jonathan Glazer’s ‘The Zone of Interest’ which earned a six-minute standing ovation following its world premiere.
