Yay! For Aishwarya's fourth public appearance at the French film festival, the former Miss World wore a a heavily embellished, floor-sweeping, golden-brown coloured bandhgala jacket by celebrity designer Rohit Bal. She teamed the outfit with a neckpiece by Deepa Gurnani and shoes from Nicholas Kirkwood. For her make-up, Aishwarya opted for smokey grey eyes and nude lips. This was definitely an Indian avatar of the actress that worked, unlike most of her other ethnicwear attempts at the festival. (Source: icannesbylorealparis/Instagram)

Yay! At Aishwarya's third appearance at Cannes this time, she looked stunning in an embellished pink-gold Elie Saab gown, turning heads on the red carpet while attending the premiere of Steven Spielberg's The BFG.Looking vintage Hollywood, the dress has a bustier with decollétage and a skirt with a small train. The simple cinched belt gave a nice break to the eyes dividing the heavy bodice and embellished skirt. The Sarbjit actress paired the gown with rose gold jewellery from Boucheron, Ferragamo shoes and a Pure Brick lip shade from the L’Oréal Paris Pure Reds collection, her hair done in a classic old Hollywood style.

Aishwarya's ensemble was reminiscent of her Day 1 appearance when she wore a golden Ali Younes Couture gown. Looking vintage Hollywood, the dress has a bustier with decollétage and a skirt with a small train.

The Bollwood actress looked ravishing in this beautiful red ruffled gown from Indian-American designer Naeem Khan, whose work is increasingly being showcased on Hollywood red carpet events and by dignitaries (remember Michelle Obama?). The gown has a sweetheart fringed bodice, a sheer neck with a full-length tulle skirt. The ever-graceful Aishwarya completed her look by choosing a bright lip shade and a perfectly winged eye-liner. The overall look was a polar opposite to her previous appearance in a golden Ali Younes Couture gown. (Source: Reuters)

Yay! Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opened her 15th year at the Cannes Film Festival with a touch of elegance and grace in a golden Ali Younes Couture gown. The ensemble by the Kuwaiti designer was a beaded cape couture that the Devdas actress complemented with a dash of glamour with her make-up — she had lined her upper eyelid with a bold turquoise blue liner, combining it with a smokey blue eyeshadow and bold lashes, and a killer red lip shade that just slayed everyone on the red carpet. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had arrived at Cannes in style, and how. (Source: AP)

Adding a dash of glamour to her red carpet look, she had lined her upper lid with a bold turquoise blue liner, complementing it with a smokey blue eyeshadow and bold lashes. We think, her stylist Aastha Sharma did a good job. Leaving no stone unturned to create the perfect red carpet style statement, she styled her hair in loose waves and kept the rest of the make-up nude and luminous. (Photo: AP)
