Priyanka to walk the red car­pet at the Os­cars

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - City - Shreya Mukher­jee

Ac­tor Priyanka Bose (be­low) is su­per ex­cited to at­tend the Os­cars this year for her film, Lion. The ac­tor will be walk­ing the red car­pet in a sus­tain­able gown, to be de­signed by Bri­tish fash­ion de­signer Vivi­enne West­wood.

“Emma Roberts and I am the face of a cam­paign that Vivi­enne West­wood is as­so­ci­ated with. It’s called Red Car­pet Green Dress, which is like wear­ing sus­tain­able gown on the red car­pet. I to­tally sup­port the cause. A cou­ple of other stylists are also on board to give us an in­ter­est­ing look,” says Priyanka. The sus­tain­able fash­ion de­sign cam­paign is in­tended at rais­ing aware­ness about the im­pact of fash­ion on the planet.

Ask her more about the gown and the Guzaar­ish ac­tor shares, “I re­ally don’t know much about the colour and cut. I’m just ready for a sur­prise. I guess it will be a won­der­ful West­wood sig­na­ture Os­car red car­pet gown and I’m ex­cited about it. That’s the rea­son I’ll be reach­ing early so that we talk through the en­tire process.”

Priyanka is look­ing for­ward to unit­ing with the en­tire team of Lion and is anx­ious about her de­but ap­pear­ance. “Lion has ev­ery­thing in it to win, this year. The story about de­spair, hope, love and hu­man per­se­ver­ance con­nects well with all,” she adds.

So whom does she want to bump into at the cer­e­mony and Priyanka says, “Oh there are so many of them. I’m openly crush­ing on the lead ac­tor of Moon­light. I to­tally loved the film. I also want to ex­change pleas­antries with Barry Jenk­ins. If I get to work with him then there is noth­ing like it. I’d like to say hello to Lupita Ny­ong’o and even Emma Stone.”
