The most famous Indian beauty in the world walks the red carpet at the French Riviera with her trademark elegance and impossible-to-replicate style statement. While Bollywood babes Vidya Balan, Sonam Kapoor and Mallika Sherawat made their striking presence felt at the glitzy gala this year, we were waiting for the amazing Ash magic to take over. So here comes the stunning Bachchan bahu at the 66th Cannes Film Festival and we can’t help but stare at her in awe…

She knows the prestigious Cannes Film Festival and the frighteningly glamorous French Riviera like her own backyard. No wonder, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the darling of the international press. Even after her much-talked about pregnancy, her weight gain after childbirth and her repeated fashion faux pas, Ash continues to sizzle on the red carpet with her celestial presence.

This year Vidya Balan, who was present at Cannes as a special jury member, brought a breath of fresh air with her charm. The Dirty Picture actor’s finely crafted ethnic wear including her trademark Kanjeevaram saree and the intricately designed maroon outfit made her the photographers’ delight. We also spotted Mallika Sherawat in a beautiful off-shoulder outfit. And then there was the most style-sensible gal Sonam Kapoor who looked absolutely gorgeous in a beautiful Dolce & Gabbana floral gown. The side-swept hair and minimal accessories made Sonam look every bit a diva. After watching all these beauties, we were waiting for Ash, curious to know what she will wear this year! And then arrived the divinity in motion…

Putting her disastrous saree and jacket faux pas of the last year behind her, Aishwarya attended the screening of Inside Llewyn Davis on Sunday. The 38-year-old actor was a traffic-stopper in a black lace and sequined Elie Saab creation. She accessorised the high-voltage outfit with a black minaudiere. Her simple hairdo and minimal makeup made her look elegant. Off the red carpet too, she was a class apart in a white Saint Laurent shirt and a long mermaid-style Zac Posen skirt. The classy Armani belt made her look slimmer than her red carpet avatar. Later in the day, Ash was spotted in a heavily embellished black and gold Sabyasachi saree with a gold hair ornament at the gala. We like!
