Sure, Alia Bhatt likes to spin around in her pretty dresses (see here) but this time, it wasn’t just any dress. As Shaandaar‘s trailer and music launches track the path up to its much-awaited release, Alia and Shahid Kapoor have been promoting it all over the country. For one of these promotional rounds, Alia turned up in a dress that wasn’t made by a fancy designer, it was even better. Take a look…
It turns out, Alia tweeted to all her fans to mail her their letters, drawings and doodles (as I’d imagine they did anyway) and once they started pouring in, her stylist, Ami Patel, who conceptualised the whole thing, took them all and made her a dress!
We spoke to Ami and she explained,
Once I had Alia’s go ahead and she tweeted the contest, e-mails started pouring in. We had to sift through thousands of these and all of them were so special. There were so many beautiful portraits of Alia, we could have made one outfit with just those!
We decided on this tea length dress that had a large flare to accommodate as many paintings as possible. I just want to say that all of Alia’s fans are “Shaandaar” and we loved each and every piece of art that came in, but we could only accommodate so many in one dress. I had enough to make at least 10 gowns! But we only have one Shaandaar Alia and one dress to make!
