Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks 10 years younger at Cannes Film Festival


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks 10 years younger at Cannes Film Festival

If we asked real nice, would you loan us your fairy godmother?

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan just turned up at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival looking at least a decade younger. If we didn’t know any better, we swear we would have suspected foul play.

The actress landed in sunny France with her daughter Aaradhya in tow yesterday, and turned up the drama to va-va-voom right from the get go. Giving her beloved Manish Malhotra a break, Aishwarya instead thumbed through Sonam Kapoor’s directory and landed on her new find, Yanina Couture. The Cannes blitz began with a diaphanous floral gown and lips bright enough to match the sunbathed French Riviera. 

Before we had time to catch our breath, she modelled another floral number by Mark Bumgarner for our viewing pleasure. Her first red carpet outing saw her transforming into a couture wearing- Disney princess in a Michael Cinco gown. She also casually hung out with a small-time pop star called Rihanna.

For her second day on the red carpet, Aishwarya turned to Cannes red carpet favourite Ralph and Russo for a tiered fire engine red ensemble and effectively made us vow to sign a pledge to replace the dancing girl emoji with this look from Aishwarya.
