Nancy shared the details of her outfit with her followers on Instagram and revealed that her ruffled number took over 30 days to stitch and it weighs close to 20 kgs. She used 1000 metre fabric to put it all together and hoped that her creation empowers many like her.

A part of her post read, "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."

"The journey has been intense, but every moment was worth it. I'm overwhelmed with joy and gratitude for the love and support from all of you. This is a dream come true, and I hope my creation dazzles you as much as your support has inspired me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart," she added.
