It is well-known that actress Mallika Sherawat manages to steal the show wherever she goes. The 65th Cannes film festival was not an exception to this bold Indian star. She surprised everyone at the Cannes premiere of Madagascar 3, as she walked the red carpet wearing a backless dress and a retro makeup and hairstyle.
Mallika Sherawat sported a plunging backless dress that was held together by a thin blingy belt at her waist. She donned winged eyeliner and a bouffant like Saira Banu. Although she looked simple in this getup, it was obviously her bold act. The actress says that this dress was stitched on her body on the spot by a French fashion designer.
Talking to Rajeev Masand of IBN Live, Mallika Sherawat said, “I am wearing Katara outfit, which is literally stitched on my body. It is designed by Ali Madhavi, a great fashion icon from France. He came here in the morning with his gang and he stitched this outfit on me. He really made it for me and nothing like this exists in the world.”
However, Mallika Sherawat thinks that sporting a perfect fashion look is a toughest job. The Hisss actress added, “It is the hardest thing in the world to look good and everything to par perfection in front of hundreds of photographers... it is the toughest thing in the world.”
