When it comes to fashion, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is either a pure delight or a complete let down – there’s no middle ground here. Her style diary is a mix of everything, from the glamorous to the bizarre. On her birthday, we take a look at few of her best looks ever.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is undeniably the most sought-after and photographed Bollywood celebrity at Cannes each year. And why not! Here, Aishwarya looks 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. She paired it 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.

A simple white piece when worn right can beat even the most stunning of dresses. And when it's Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wearing a beautiful Rohit Bal sherwani-styled white kurta with white resham embroidery and a crushed, floor-length skirt, even better. The outfit looks elegant and fit for any formal gathering. With middle-parted hair, the actress finished the look with smokey eyes and earrings from MBJ. She looked stunning.

When it comes to Manish Malhotra, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opts for Indian wear but there are rare occasions when she goes for western and we don't have any reasons to complain. The actress looked lovely in a strapless Manish Malhotra gown. The floor length dress in grey with colourful floral embroidery did her justice. Soft curls and nude make-up rounded out her look.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was a vision of elegance 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.

One look at Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in this Tarun Tahiliani sari and it reminds us of Saira Banu's evergreen style. There are too many things about this look that we like starting from the beautiful neckline of the blouse to her updo. She did look like a diva. (Source: Varinder Chawla)

At Cannes 2014, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looked stunning in a shimmery champagne coloured Armani Privé couture gown. The actress won nods of approval for her look and no doubt looked divalicious, so much so that even hubby Abhishek couldn't keep his eyes off her. (Source: Twitter)

We love Sabyasachi couture and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in it is a sight to behold. The dull gold Sabyasachi suit is pretty in itself but the actress took it to another level. Enough said! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)
