Aishwarya Rai has been a regular on the Cannes Red carpet quite a while now. While the younger lot has much more of a firmer grasp on the red carpet fashion, Ash has fumbled, stumbled and learned it the hard way.
And that we saw on the first day itself. Throughout her Cannes journey there were two looks that stood out. One obviously being the Elie Saab gown, which showed off that this woman is back in the game and gave us hope that the rest of the appearances would be as good. The grey Elie saab (a fav of hers ), former Miss world rocked it and How.
The less said about the Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla anarkali, the better. The heavy hair and the white anarkali… not working
The Gucci Satin gown was not the perfect gown for her third outing, but anything better than that anarkali. While the gown itself was pretty, the one shoulder gown highlighted some facts that she still needed to hit the gym. While the pink lips were a pretty accent, thats where it all ended. The beehive updo was too harsh and contrasting in terms of its character for the gown that she was sporting.
For her final outing at amFAR she opted for a Tarun Talihani gold sari. While it made sense for her to do an updo(much better this time) since it was a collared blouse, it was too much gold. Gold sari, gold blouse, gold clutch, gold jewellery…Darling! u took the description being ‘glitterati’ event too literally.
Photocall: while she looked good in the YSL button down and Zac posen skirt (look similar to model on red carpet) , it had me wishing, she should have opted for a pencil skirt instead for a fuss free look.
