Assamese actress-director Aimee Baruah drew every eye towards her when she walked the Cannes red carpet in a simple muga silk sari. 

She paired the traditional Mekhela Chador with a full-sleeved blouse and accessorised the look with a tiered pearl and gold necklace and matching earrings. 

Aimee was at Cannes to speak about her movie, Semkhor, and her decision to wear a sari worked well because that's where her fashion sweet spot lies. 

Here's looking at Aimee serving up serious style goals inspired by her roots.
