Sara Ali Khan captures the essence of modern Indian fashion at Cannes
On Wednesday, Sara Ali Khan stepped out in the French Riviera town to display her sartorial prowess for a photoshoot. Sara wore a black-and-white coloured beaded bralette blouse and a saree-style skirt by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. The star and the designers posted pictures of the look on Instagram. Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla shared details about the ensemble in the caption, “Sara Ali Khan creates magic in monochrome at Cannes 2023 in #abujanisandeepkhosla Couture. She dons an off-white chamois satin trailing skirt with an attached drape, intricately bordered with black and white tiny beads and crystals.”
Sara’s Cannes Day 2 look features a halter neck blouse embellished with black and white beads and crystals with multiple rows of pearls. A plunging V neckline, fitted bust, and midriff-baring cropped hem added an edgy twist to her ensemble. She wore it with an off-white chamois satin saree-styled skirt with an attached drape, pleats on the front, black and white beads and crystals-embellished border, and a trailing floor-sweeping train on the back.
Sara styled the ensemble with minimalist jewels, including a black and white layered pearl necklace, dainty ear studs, and high heels. Lastly, a side-parted messy chignon bun, bold winged eyeliner, kohl-lined eyes, darkened brows, subtle eye shadow, rouged cheekbones, mauve lip shade, and dewy base gave the finishing touch.
Though fans were not impressed by Sara’s Cannes Day 1 look, the Day 2 ensemble got their approval. A user commented on Diet Sabya’s story, “In the light of all the other outfits, this is an improvement.” Another fan wrote, “Replica of your grandma #sharmilatagore ji with her 60s-70s look in your first picture is breathtaking.” Another commented, “Yesterday she was Shabnam today she’s Shola.”
