What does it take to impress on the Cannes red carpet? 

Spectacular designer outfits? A high-profile glam team? A bevy of hair stylists and make-up artistes?

Nancy Tyagi, a fashion influencer from Uttar Pradesh, proved that all one needs is buckets of confidence.

Dressed in a pink ruffled gown that she made herself with over 1,000 meters of fabric, she joined the other desi influencers in dazzling everyone at the Cannes Film Festival. 

These beautiful ladies turned heads as they made their presence felt at the annual celebration of cinema along the French Riviera.
