Fashion influencer Nancy Tyagi wore a traditional saree with beautiful embroidery and a modern twist. She diligently made and stitched her self-designed cape saree.

Nancy Tyagi does it again! The Delhi-based influencer has once again wowed audiences with her second look at the 77th Cannes Film Festival. Following her famous debut in a self-stitched pink gown on the French Riviera, the fashion designer is making waves online with her second DIY ensemble.

After stealing netizens’ hearts with her Ariana Grande-inspired costume, the influencer chose a timeless saree with beautiful embroidery and a modern twist. The self-designed cape saree was skillfully created and stitched by herself.



Nancy wore a lavender saree with elaborate embroidery to her second appearance at the Festival de Cannes. The saree included a cape, superb pre-draped design, and a floral pattern that captivated everyone.

The saree’s originality was accentuated by a delicate waistline, a beautiful long train, a side slit, and a graceful pallu. She oozed grace and elegance in a saree that wonderfully combined traditional style with modernism.

She shared a behind-the-scenes video of her self-stitched saree and walked the red carpet in style, writing, “My second outfit from the Cannes Film Festival, which I wore at a special event, is another creation made entirely by me. This ensemble is a saree featuring intricate hand embroidery. Every piece was meticulously crafted and assembled by me.”


The saree was paired with a matching full-sleeve blouse featuring a similar complex pattern. The blouse was the highlight of the ensemble, with a backless design, a spaghetti ribbon tie, a distinctive cow neckline, and a cape on her head.

She opted for sparkling and bright makeup, wearing a glossy purple eye look with berry lips. The look was completed with huge silver hoop earrings, dazzling rings, and purple block heels. She dressed her hair in a sleek bun with bead hair ornaments, which improved the entire look.

The star continues to make India proud at the great film festival, and the internet praises her for her efforts and cultural heritage.
