The mother of 8-year-old Sophia told TooFab that she “wanted to bring culture to the red carpet” and wasn’t worried “at all” about any backlash for the look.
“I think this will inspire others to embrace new cultures and have good experiences,” she said, adding that the gown made her feel “freaking amazing, Bollywood and sexy!”
“I’m speaking proof that you can be a mother, you can be strong, you can be sexy, you can be whatever you want,” she said. “You can be fearless. So yes, all moms can get their sexy back, like Justin Timberlake.”
