The queen.. Aishwarya Rai
I remember the first time I ever gave full attention to Miss World pageant was in 1994, when one of the most beautiful women that I’ve ever seen won the title. I still remember Aishwarya Rai walking on the stage, the way she confidently held the microphone from the presenter and gracefully answered. I was 11.
Aishwarya Rai, a role model
As I grew, I kept an eye on her career, her international growth made her a role model. It was really the grace and elegance that Aishwarya Rai embraced that made her every young girl’s role model. Every time I thought about dressing Bollywood actresses or celebrities in general, Aishwarya Rai was the ultimate muse I had to dress one day.
Aishwarya Rai latest news and outfit
And then one day, it all came together.
To make let this experience measure up to childhood fantasies and my admiration for Aishwarya Rai, it wasn’t just another press piece that she wore. It was a custom-made gown to her personal taste and measurements. As I was sketching the lines of my Spring Summer 2017, Aishwarya’s styling team and I brought what’s supposed to be showcased later in September 2016 to life much sooner. We went for a hot pink silk tefta gown with hand pleated top and belt and a puffy skirt. A boat neckline kept the look elegant and the extended sleeves showcased the hand pleating further. Aishwarya Raid ‘Loved’ the dress and wore it to the trailer launch of the fbiographical Hindi film Sarbjit directed by Omung Kumar in Mumbai on April 14, 2016.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Aishwarya Rai for making one of my dreams come true!
