Aishwarya Rai in sari stuns everyone at Cannes
Aishwariya Rai mesmerised everyone at the red carpet as she walked in Indian outfit with her husband Abhishek Bachchan during the premiere of 'Outrage'.
Besides Abhishek, Aishwarya was also accompanied by her mother Vrinda Rai and team of 'Raavan'.
Aish's outfit switch
From Armani, Elie Saab and Gucci designer outfits, Aish made a switch over to Indian outfit designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee at the sixth day of Cannes Film Festival, the most prestigious and world's oldest film festival.
Aishwarya Rai was usually seen in western outfits more due to the rules of her brand L'Oreal. As per the rules, she must present herself in western outfit but this time she also showed her Indian side.
The sari was studded with stone and had a low neck blouse and on that she wore less of jewelry.
"The look was glamourised and it brought back memories of Ash in the film Guru. I also loved the make-up,” Ritu Kumar told NDTV.
On May 23, 2002, Aishwariya Rai was seen in a sari at Cannes Film Festival first at the premiere of 'Devdas' that fascinated everyone at the red carpet.
But ever since the 2003 outfit disaster, when her green sari and chappals at the 'Dogville' premiere were criticized even by the unfashionable, the brand L'Oreal made sure that she wears designer outfits.
Deepika Padukone still in race
Besides Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone also preferred Indian wear. She wore an off-white sari designed by Rohit Bal. She said that she finds sari very Indian and sensuous.
As per Oneindia, Deepika said, “There’s so much to Cannes besides the festival. In fact, the first time when I came to Cannes in 2002 I was here not for the Festival but as a tourist.
"I remember I had stood outside the venue of the Cannes film festival and taken pictures. I had promised myself that next time I’d be back as part of the Festival…and here I am.”
