Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is as essential to the Cannes Film Festival as the Palme d’Or. The former Miss World made several dazzling appearances on the French Riviera this week - and "India’s unofficial ambassador" to Cannes did not disappoint.
Attending the Youth premiere, the glamorous Bollywood queen posed up a storm on the red carpet in a structural Ralph & Russo gown. The architectural folds combined with the sprinkling of black appliqués on the bodice ensured all eyes were on Aishwarya as she strutted her stuff for the cameras.
Earlier on in the week, Mrs. Bachchan had stepped out for the Jazbaa photocall - her first in five years - in full fashion force, wowing in a burgundy flamenco-style dress by Oscar de la Renta.
The brunette beauty wore her hair in glamorous bouncy waves, topping off the look with liquid eyeliner and a slick of mulberry lipstick. It was the second of two recent stunning ensembles from the superstar, who was a vision in sea-green Elie Saab for the premiere of Carol on May 19.
From dazzling saris to glamorous gowns, the actress rarely makes a fashion misstep on the red carpet. This year, the mother-of-one has been grabbing headlines once more with her head-turning ensembles.
Last year, the stunning star made a grand statement in a golden Roberto Cavalli gown befitting her status as Cannes royalty. She topped off the glamorous look with a bold red lip, posing sultrily for photographers as the cameras flashed.
The green-eyed beauty donned the designer again for another premiere just a few days later - turning heads in a shimmery dress with a fishtail silhouette - and wore in hair blown out in big, soft waves à la Duchess of Cambridge.
Then, just when we thought Aishwarya couldn't be any more beautiful, she hit the amFAR gala sporting her hottest accessory - her handsome husband, Abhishek Bachchan.
It seems he, too, was a fan of Mrs. Bachchan's Cannes style. Along with a gorgeous photo of his wife, the actor tweeted, "Almost 52hrs without sleep! Eyes shutting… and the Mrs. Shows up looking like this!! Ok.. Eyes wide open now!"
Aishwarya has had plenty of time to practice her Cannes look, having sashayed down the red carpet dozens of times since making her stunning debut in 2002 - and when you're known as "the most beautiful woman in the world," it's hard not to land a fashion bullseye!
