FASHION Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s style statement at Cannes

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looked slim and elegant as she made her much-awaited entry to the Cannes Film Festival’s red carpet in a black sequined Elie Saab gown.

The 39-year-old Bollywood diva, who is on her 11th visit to the festival, completed her look with open hair and minimal jewellery.

Aishwarya, who has travelled with her 18-month-old daughter Aardhya to the festival, kept the baby away from prying cameras by making a lone entry at the premiere of the Carey Mulligan-Justin Timberlake starrer, Inside Llewyn Davis.

The actor later went traditional in Sabyasachi’s black sari for the evening gala that celebrated 100 years of Indian cinema. Aishwarya teamed hair accessory and danglers with the gold embroidered sari as she made her way to the screening of Bollywood anthology film Bombay Talkies. The actor went monochrome with her third outfit as she donned a fitted white shirt and black mermaid-style skirt.
