There is no doubt ash finds Cannes as a second home. Indians are always interested in what the beautiful lady dons for the Cannes Film Festival, the most prestigious film festival in the world! Be it for her representing her films such as Devdas, Bride and Prejudice, Provoked, Guru, etc., inaugurating the festival, attending as a member of the prestigious jury or as a part of the L’Oreal Paris dream team, Cannes has become synonymous with Aishwarya. .

This year was special for Aishwarya as she was invited as the L’Oréal brand ambassador but also because she was provided the huge honour of opening the festival, also a first for an Indian.
Her Cannes outing in 2005 was a far cry from her first appearance at the French festival. She stepped out wearing a black Gucci gown with plunging neckline.

It was not only at the red carpet, but Aishwarya Rai's behind the scenes looks at Cannes were also a hit with the fashion critics.
While Aishwarya has always rocks western wear at Cannes, she disappointed with her choice of ethnic outfits. Aishwarya opted for a black lehenga-sari with golden embroidery by Sabyasachi with matching golden hair accessory. Aishwarya Rai's golden sari by Tarun Tahiliani was the worst dress at the Cannes red carpet.

Ash glittered in a gold Roberto Cavalli off-shoulder dress and a white glittery gown another from Roberto Cavalli ,Aishwarya silenced her critics as she sizzled on the red carpet.

                                          Look at the flawless makeup *dazed* *_*

All in all she looked gorgeous in all three of her appearances, but I do wish she had opted for at least one ethnic outfit to showcase at Cannes!

Which was Your fav look?
