For accessories she kept things neat by wearing sleek statement jewelleries and a golden IWC watch.

The attire was OTT for sure, but she wore it with such an amazing innate confidence! With a neat top bun, defined winged eye makeup and statement studs and ring by Anomaly and Misho she looked like million bucks.
Nandita Das –
While the Internet going crazy over the Sonam Kapoor’s Desi vibe and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s fairytale gown, Nandita Das made a rather less noisy entry to Cannes 2017 to promote her upcoming movie Manto in a gold toned Anavila zari saree. She kept her style low-key and elegant like always by pairing the attire with a neat bun, kohl eyes and ethnic dangling earring. So simple yet speaks so much of being pretty in traditional.
