Why: No contest: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a custom Michael Cinco is everything we could wish for in a red-carpet appearance. Created to reflect the impalpable dream of a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, this 3,000-hour creation took trains to new heights. The actress stunned in a dramatic purple butterfly gown with an elaborate 20-foot train, in her first famed film festival appearance this year. Completely covered in French palettes and Swarovski crystals; the sequin-embellished mermaid gown consisted of midnight blue, ultra-violet, black, and red threadwork. Plus, its sweetheart neckline and body-hugging silhouette complemented the gorgeous diva’s figure perfectly. Ah, the drama!
Beauty Look: Usually, we know what to expect from the actress: a red lip, usual straight hair and, of course, beautiful brows. But for Cannes, she deviated from the norm, wearing centre-parted sleek hair and wing eye, accentuated with specks of purple glitter. And why not? With a gown mimicking a butterfly, it’s no wonder Aish’s makeup was just as rich with colour!
