Aishwarya Rai’s purple lips stole the show - Yay or nay?
The most highly anticipated film festival of the year at Cannes played host to international stars, including Bollywood’s very own glamour queens. Impressively representing Indian talent and beauty in her 17th consecutive year at the prestigious soiree, Aishwarya Rai looked as stunning as ever - she’s hardly changed since her first appearance all those years ago. Continuing her reign as global icon, Ash wore glad-rags that were befitting of her status, glittering in gold gowns by Ali Younes Couture, along with her red carpet favourite Elie Saab. At the premiere screening and press conference for her forthcoming release Sarbjit, she wore an ethnic fusion ensemble by Rohit Bal, but what really got the paps buzzing was her avant-garde look whilst wearing a Rami Kadi layered gown, complemented by an interesting combo of daring bold purple lips with a smoky eye. She also sported an uncharacteristically high fashion look with heavy blue makeup. We salute Ash for trying new looks - but who better to carry off random riske looks than the most beautiful woman in the world!
Cannes regular, Sonam Kapoor looked a picture of exotic elegance in a resplendent ivory gown by Ralph & Russo, although we preferred her red carpet wardrobe from last year at Cannes. Yet again, much to our bewilderment and wonder, Malika Sherawat sashayed down the red carpet in rather bland Georges Hobeika gowns, whilst we were still wondering what she was doing there and who invited her?
