I cant even begin to express my feelings about how I felt walking the Red Carpet for the very first time at the Cannes Film Festival 2017 . It was no ordinary occasion This one was super special , It was the Celebration Night for the 70th Anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival .
This was indeed a dream come true. So the preparations began a month ago for me . I began preparing my wardrobe and started contacting various designers to dress me for this very special occasion . I finally made up my mind and teamed up with one of my Favourite designer Madean By Farah we sat over a cup of coffee and designed this whole look .She had brought a Sketch of the dress for me and mentioned that the Dress will be Hand Made with embroidery and the trail will be 6 meters long . I had the vision and was so anxious to see the final results . Two days before I had travelled to Cannes Farah brought the dress for fitting and when she showed me the dress I was blown away . The dress is made to perfection with beautiful embellishments and so well tailored in Italy .
This made me even more excited about my trip .So I carried this 5 Kilo Dress in my Hand Luggage I felt I lost few kilos just walking with the dress around all of Dubai Airport .
So I arrived in Cannes and headed straight to the Carlton Hotel to the Avakian Jewelry Suite where I had the first look at the Jewelry I wore with my dress The Jewels were mesmerizing and so elegant . It felt like like it was all just meant to be .
I get my dress steamed and the Carlton Hotel staff it took 5 of them to carry the dress back to the suite .
And finally it was time for the Red Carpet . It was a heavy gown but totally worth everything I gracefully walked the red carpet and my look was very appreciated and I received great compliments even from the A List Celebs which just made my day .
All I can say is that this indeed is a dream come true to Walk the Red Carpet for a super Luxurious Jewelry Brand like Avakian Jewels and more so in this dreamy dress which made me live a Fairytale moment .
I am so happy that I choose to get dressed by a New Designer who has just Launched in Dubai her collection last December and its good to wear a regional designer who deserves to be out there .
I always live my life to the fullest with no regrets and only strive to do better always .
