Just a few weeks back, we saw Lady Gaga pay a sartorial tribute to the late designer, by donning two bodycon dresses by the couturier, at AMA’s.
The actress was seen donning this look at the Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards.
Alaia, who has been a huge source of inspiration in Thampi's life from the beginning of his career, related to a lot of Azzedine's design and thought this way was the best way to honor him.
"When the news splashed about the demise of Azzedine Alaia, the world went in a frenzy posting pictures and expressing their feelings. But no one really spoke of how revolutionary and forward he was as a designer. He has always been an inspiration to me from the very beginning of my career," Thampi told a media agency.
"I relate a lot to his design philosophy and the mere fact that he understood and celebrated a woman's body which was pathbreaking and revolutionary back then and so in trend currently which took my attention and what better way to say bye and thank him by giving an homage at a prestigious red-carpet," he added.
