All stars attending the Cannes International Film Festival are busy putting their wardrobes in order. Indian cinema celebrates 100 years at the festival this year.
For this red carpet event, special care is being taken by Indian stars. And special preparations are being made by Ameesha Patel for the event as this is going to be her maiden event. This 37 year old actress has made a decision to sport an entirely desi look during her visit to the Cannes festival, as per reports. Ameesha Patel has acted in Shortcut Romeo a film directed by Sushi Ganesh in which Puja Gupta and Neil Nitin Mukesh have also featured. The film will be premieredon the 22nd May, and will be attended by Ameesha Patel.
Ameesha consulted Manish Malhotra, designer and good friend, who also feels that the decision to dress in 'desi style' is the perfect way to represent India on a global platform. She says that the big deal is that she is going there especially for the movie she has worked in and not as a brand ambassador. To represent Indian cinema at the Cannes festival is a huge honor for her, she states. There will be two outfits for Ameesha, one in the morning for the red carpet and one at night for the premier. She feels there couldn’t be anything better than the lehenga or the sari on an Indian woman. She has acted in hit films like Gadar – ek prem katha and Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai.
One of the best known designers is Manish Malhotra who designs some of the best possible ensembles to compliment the look of any person. Ameesha Patel has been given a red carpetish yet Indian outfit keeping in mind her personality and complexion, he says. Classic colors, white and black have been incorporated in the outfits she is going to wear. Chikankari and Kashmiri work feature high on her outfits. International summer trends have also been kept in mind while designing her outfits for the Cannes festival.
