Fashion influencer Nancy Tyagi made her red carpet debut in a pink ruffled gown with an elaborate train at the 77th Cannes Film Festival. The Delhi-based digital creator said the gown was designed and stitched by herself.

Nancy said she took a month to finish the gown, which required over 1000 metres of fabric. Hailing from Baranwa, Uttar Pradesh, Nancy wore a gown that had a strapless decorated bodice along with elbow-high gloves. She completed her look with a silver necklace and tonged tresses.

“Stepping onto the red carpet at the 77th Cannes Film Festival as a debutant feels surreal. I poured my heart and soul into creating this pink gown,” Nancy wrote in a post on her Instagram account
