She is the unofficial ambassador of Cannes, the winner of hearts and India’s first Miss World. No wonder designers can falter to find the perfect piece of red carpet dress for this ethereal beauty. Yes we are talking about none other than Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In the last 15 years, she has had her own share of hits and misses but she continues to grace the carpet. Lets check out the Aishwarya Rai Cannes journey that is worth remembering.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan began her journey in 2002, when she was at Cannes for the premiere of her film Devdas. She was sporting a Neeta Lulla creation and was seen in traditional attire. Though she looked too glittery, she did make the world take notice of her.
She again returned to Cannes next year but this time as a jury member. This year too she kept the traditional and went for Neeta Lulla’s creation again. Unfortunately, Aishwarya failed miserably and was panned by fashionistas. The neon green saree and the severe hair up do made her look really flat and turned out to be a total disaster at the film festival.
The third year at Cannes film festival again proved unfruitful. She opted for Neeta Lulla’s creation but went for a gown. Unfortunately, the gown was ill-fitting and she was criticized for her choice.
Fourth time was the lucky charm for her. Aishwarya made heads turn when she walked down in a black Gucci gown with deep plunging neckline. And she nailed the red carpet at Cannes film festival.
In 2006, her film Provoked was screened and this time too she nailed it. She looked stunning in a midnight blue Elie Saab gown and her trend setting snake neck piece did its job perfectly.
This year she visited Cannes with her husband Abhishek Bachchan. This newly wedded couple stole the show, where Aishwarya looked like a woman from the dream world. She was spotted in a pristine white Giorgio Armani gown, with a beautiful diamond choker. She proved that you can never get enough of diamonds.
This year was a total hit for this former Miss India. All her dresses that she wore during the Cannes film festival were total spot on. However, the bold fuchsia gown is the one which became the real talk in the town.
She carried off the white Cavalli gown like an ace. It was only possible for her to do so. This strapless gown made her look like a diva and she became quite the stunner at Cannes.
After many years she decides to stun the crowd at Cannes with ethnic attire. She looked absolutely sensational in shimmering gold Sabyasachi Saree. The simple blouse and the severe updo did the trick this time to further jazz up her look.
This year she dressed in the most futuristic way ever. Her Armani Geometric dress accentuated her petite figure. Plus the monochrome combination of dress highlighted her smoky eyes.
This year she received international acclaim and praise from style gurus all across the world. Post pregnancy, Aishwarya had gained significant amount of body weight. However she elegantly flaunted her curves in this Elie Saab gown.
She wore a teal colored Gucci Premiere gown which was complemented by pink hot lips and definitely managed to increase the hotness quotient.
By now she had lost all those extra kilos. And to accentuate her figure, she opted for a glamorous Roberto Cavalli gown which was really flattering. To top it all her bold red lips made her look even more sensuous.
This year saw her in a nude kind of makeup oomphed by the voluminous Ralph and Russo dress. This glammed up look made her look exquisite at Cannes.
Cannes got bedazzled by Aishwarya Rai’s this year’s look. She wore a studded Champagne colored gown designed by Ali Yones and looked like a Queen ready to take Cannes by storm.
