Black and white, black and gold, complete black, then pastels and now a blue satin dress – that’s Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s fashion graph at the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival 2013. Till now Indian actress Aishwarya Rai had played safe and picked up black costumes for most outings. However, in her latest red-carpet outing, she chose to dabble with colours, cuts and a new hair style.
If her one-shouldered teal blue satin Gucci Première gown during ‘Cleopatra’ premiere was not a stunner, she caught the attention of the shutterbugs with her bright fuchsia pink lips.
Ash didn’t highlight her smoky eyes with dark make-up, instead chose to keet it simple. However, it must be mentioned that 2013 has probably been her best Cannes red carpet appearance – fashion-wise – despite a few glitches here and there.
From day one, fans hoped Ash would experiment with her hair than just let it down. However, no one expected the tall and twisted bun, which didn’t quite look right from the sides. Also, a softer lower bun would have been just perfect to complete her look.
It was fashion redemption of sorts from her previous appearances. But she will still not get the perfect score. Some could be generous and claim that the former Miss World was unlucky to be clicked from rather unflattering angles.
The close-ups showed that the teal blue satin Gucci Première gown was strapped too tight as the underarm flab popped out. Not a complimentary sight. Her hair-do was way too untidy from the back and resembled a nest.
The black clutch she accessorized with the dress was a downer – almost looked as if she picked it up in a hurry. Her waist also caught our attention; it didn’t look as slim as it did in the first photo call. Let’s blame it again on the ‘wrong angle’.
Well, there’s denying the fact that Ash is a true and natural beauty. But we hope to see a perfect number from one of the most beautiful ladies in the world as she extends her stay at Cannes. The 39-year-old actress will also attend the AMFAR event for AIDS research. Ash will also participate in an auction that is part of the event; proceeds of which will go towards AIDS research.(E 247)
