Our memories(in India)about the Cannes film festival has got too much to do with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Criticism did come her way,regarding her choice of attires.But we saw only praise as the yrs passed.She went on to become one of the most famous faces there.
Her tryst with Cannes began when her movie Devdas was screened at the festival.And the very next year,she went on to become the first ever Indian actor to be chosen as a part of the prestigious jury in 2003.And The most beautiful woman in the world has been gracefully adorning the carpet,every year,as a part of the L'Oreal Dream Team and owing to the screening of many of her films.
Its been eleven yrs and we will see her for the 12th consecutive year.
Here is a collection of Aishwarya's splendid red carpet appearances over the years :
2012 was particularly a crucial year!The year where her weight gain sparked huge debates nationally and internationally.And was even gratuitously bashed for it.People impatiently waited to see what she takes to the carpet.But she silenced the critics just by the sheet confidence and matchless grace she has always been associated with.
Though her Abu-Sandeep attire didn't meet with a very great response.She still managed to look STUNNING in a not-so-flattering sari.
Oozing unmistakable,flawless confidence and proudly flaunting her post-natal body,she amazed in the gorgeous Elie Saab gown.
Aishwarya Rai has been specially invited by the french government,this year.And reportedly,will be there at Cannes from the 18th of May to 23rd of May.She will be attending the AMfar Gala and will be a guest for a special evening dedicated to 100 yrs of Cinema among other appearances.
Eagerly looking forward to see her this year too!
