The chosen guest list – those who are loyal to your brand, those you look up to, and those influential people not to be missed at the front row, all these tokens make a live traditional show what it is. The magical feeling of being one in a handful is exhilarating and empowering.” Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walks for the LOreal SpringSummer 2022 ready-towear fashion show presented at Paris Fashion Week.
