While at a event at the onging Cannes Film Festival, Kangana was photographed in a lovely silk sari by Madhurya, one that she teamed with a custom Falguni and Shane Peacock corset.
Vintage-inspired updo aside, she rounded out the look with a pair of oxblood gloves and chunky Saint Laurent sandals. I want to like this look, I really do, but those gloves and sandals ruin whatever this look had going for it. I am not sure what the thinking behind adding those gloves was, especially considering it neither was cold, nor after dark nor was it a ball or gala that she was at. Besides, it added nothing to the sari. The sandals too were a bad pick considering how heavy and clunky they looked. If the idea was to cement the old school-ness of the look, the hair and outfit were enough to bring home the point. Minus those, the sari looked great on her.
It was almost like she committed to an idea of a look and it was too late to turn back. All in all, a lost opportunity.
