She wrote, "Oh Cannes you have a piece of my heart!" I wish I could pen down my entire experience but that'll be a long love letter for another time. The best thing is that in every outfit, in every picture, you could see that Mahira was being herself. Within a span of few hours, the post had garnered over 10 lakh "likes".
She continued to add that she has 'felt more empowered than ever before, ' adding that 'the reason was because of the unbelievable women that I met over the last three days. "Have had awesome conversations over the last two days. this being the most empowering". All these talented women had one thing in common - they lifted each other up. And that is the only (if any) key to success. It was even more unbelievable to get all these lovely msgs from my industry back home. Her natural hair and makeup, gentle smile and sun-kissed face was exactly the kind of face one feels proud of sending out as Pakistan's best. "Aah and my fan family, how I love thee!" she added.
When in Cannes, Mahira made trend-setting appearances in the French Riviera. Imagine the kind of image Mahira Khan portrayed when she stepped out in Cannes in that Blumarine off shoulder lavender dress.
