One event you’ll always see marked on our calendar for the month of May is the Cannes Film Festival. The 11-day-long action-packed affair can always be counted on to bring a slew of sartorial inspiration along with it, with designs by fashion heavyweights like Dior, Elie Saab, Ralph & Russo and Anamika Khanna featuring on the red carpet. The newest addition to this impressive designer list? Bollywood’s favourite couturier, Manish Malhotra.
Not only will his designs be worn by Nawazuddin Siddiqui this year (the actor will be attending the festival for his film Manto), the designer will be also make his debut appearance at the sought-after event with ice cream giant Magnum. Malhotra joins the list of Bollywood stars like Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor, who have been regular Cannes attendees in the past.
Manish Malhotra, who is known for his remarkable parties, will be hosting an event in collaboration with the British-Dutch brand. Expect to spot everyone from Hollywood actor Bella Hadid to designer Alexander Wang and other global icons on the star-studded guest-list at this party.
Whether it is fashion runways or Bollywood movies, Malhotra has created standout looks for everyone from Kareena Kapoor Khan to Alia Bhatt and other Bollywood A-listers. The couturier will be creating an exclusive accessory for American supermodel Bella Hadid, which will be inspired by the delectable Magnum Ice Cream.
“It’s wonderful to be the first Indian designer to showcase the pleasure of socialising with Magnum, and make my debut at Cannes this year. Also, it’s an honour to create something exclusively for Bella Hadid, a true global style icon. The accessory will be inspired by Magnum, befitting true decadence and the art of socialising. I’m really looking forward to it,” said the designer.
