Flashback Friday is our favourite day of the week as we get to look back at some of the most iconic times when Bollywood celebrities created fashion history. Today on our list is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has managed to be on quite a lot of our Cannes best-dressed lists. 

Today, however, we have the reigning queen of Cannes with one of her iconic looks that made quite a lot of headlines back in 2003. Why? Well, she wore flat slippers to Cannes Film Festival red carpet and received quite a lot of backlash for being under-dressed. 

In her defence, Aish got injured on the sets of Khakee (a 2004 release) where a car hit her. Reports suggest that her leg got fractured and she even received a few stitches. She was also advised to be on bed rest for at least a month. 

But, later she was seen on the red carpet in an ensemble by Neeta Lulla. She wore a green saree with a strappy long blouse and ofcourse, flats! While we know there is no harm in wearing flats, it was the ensemble that it was paired with that made it look quite a drab. The saree, the blouse, the makeup and the hair did no justice to Aishwarya’s gorgeous looks. In spite of the injury a few weeks ago, the actress still managed to walk the red carpet but got negative comments in return.

What are your thoughts about it? Let us know in the comments section below.

The car didn't hit her and she didn't fracture her leg. It was a minor injury and she got a few stitches.

Aish's PR calling her the Reigning queen of Cannes lol. She goes there to sell Loreal nail polish. How can a brand ambassador of a makeup brand be Queen of Cannes. Thousands of brands sponsor Cannes every year and their thousands of ambassadors walk the red carpet. Cannes is a movie festival and none of her movies have been screened at Cannes since 2002 (Devdas was Bhansali's work).

Ignorance is the root cause of all evil- Plato. Devdas, Provoked, Guru, Raavan, Jodha Akbar, Sarbjit were all screened at Cannes.

Cannes is not a big deal. She tried to project it as a big aspirational milestone. It is not. It means nothing. You get to wear nice clothes, get clicked by good photographers, and meet important people from the industry all over the world. That's about it.

She goes there to sell Loreal nail polish and lipsticks. Cannes is the world's largest film festival where world's biggest names gather to discuss movies not makeup. None of her movies get screened at Cannes. She goes there to walk the red carpet because she has nothing else going on.

Which the whole world praised her? and what did she do? It's rather an embarrassment to be represented by a colored eye fair woman when 99.9% of us don't look like her. Even Larry King took a jibe her by saying, I've heard British were roaming in india for 100 years.
