It's Friday and we're back with yet another flashback and this time around we have Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has been creating a buzz around her red carpet appearances for over a decade now. While the Cannes Film Festival got called off due to the pandemic it is always fun to look back at all of the old looks and feel nostalgic. This week we are throwing it back to 2003 when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attended the prestigious film festival. 

For all the people who have been following the Cannes film festival for years now, you know the number of looks that get served at the festival. The red carpet is just the tip of the iceberg and case in point, today's look is from one of the photocalls before Aish decided to hit the carpet. For the session, she opted for a short full-sleeved kurta in a bright yellow hue. It featured embroideries on brown around the neckline. She styled it with a pair of brown pants that brushed the floors. Adding to her look were her matching brown shoes that peeked through the wide-legged hem of her pants. 

A full face of glam with pink lipstick and gloss added more to her look. She accessorised it with gold earrings and a pendant brooch. 

While her look was definitely trendy then, the ill-fitted pants with the loosely fitted kurta made no sense. Indian fashion then was all about kurtas and jewellery, I mean it was early '2000s, but compared to the other guests around her, she seemed way off her game. Do you agree with us? What are your thoughts about it? Let us know in the comments section below.

Learn how to dress up Aish

Tunic top needed complimenting yellow/ white or gold trousers and heels ... trousers needed a shirt and sandals... the boots are meant for totally different types of trousers... looks like she lost her baggage and wore what she had left over. ..

Who wears a yellow top with gold embroidery + semi formal trousers + boots? Did she choose the look herself? How hard is it to pick a normal outfit... she was an architecture student.. she should know better about aesthetics

Hey Aishwarya, why do you lie that you're the first Indian at Cannes. First Indian movie was screened at Cannes in 1946 and Dev Anand's elder brother was invited there and he received the Cannes Best Film Award in 1946. That's before your momma Vrinda was born.

Diana Hayden (Miss World 1997) was the first Indian woman to be Loreal's Brand Ambassador at Cannes in 1997. But Aish fans believe that Ash who went to Cannes in 2003 is the first one. Aish fans are psycho.

Aishwarya has no fashion style. Very smart that she aggressively marketed her flat dull plastic face as most beautiful because she doesn't have anything else to offer.

She goes to Cannes to promote Loreal's latest lipstick collection. She's a flop actress with no contribution to Bollywood. Why do her fans buy into her ridiculous lies that she is carrying Bollywood on her shoulders?

Aish fans obsessed with Sallu. Sallu us busy with hotties like Jacqueline and making 500 crores movies. Why would he care for a flop has-been actress and a woman he banged 20 years ago and who is now banged by Amitabh Bachchan every night.

Aishwarya also said that she is the first woman to work while being pregnant (in her words: "I took bullets at the front line and others had it easy because of me"). Lol hahaha. We all know that she was kicked out of Heroine because she hid her pregnancy. She went into a hiding like a mouse with her baby bump as soon as her Paa announced her pregnancy. Why does this woman lie so much? She always tries to take credit for others work.

Aishwarya is so weird. She lies that she is the first Indian to go to Cannes in 2002 and because of her Bollywood received recognition in Cannes. Lol. Hahaha. Indian movies have been screened in Cannes since 1946. Aish fans you're embarrassing yourselves by buying into Aish's lies.

Aish fans are illiterate like their Aish and they buy any lie their lying Aish feeds them. Please educate yourself about the history of Indian cinema in Cannes. The first Indian actor to go to Cannes was Chetan Anand (Dev Anand's brother) whose film Neecha Nagar was invited at Cannes in 1946 and that movie won the Cannes Best Film prize (Palme d'Or). In 1976 Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil were invited to Cannes with Shyam Benegal for their movie Nishant. Mira Nair was the first Indian woman to serve on Cannes jury in 1988 and her film Salam Bombay won the Cannes Best Film Prize in 1988. Aish fans, we know you guys are impressed by princess gowns but please remember that Cannes is a movie festival not a make-up selling event.
