In Roberto Cavalli

161

Holy smokes, Aishwarya had quite the moment in her gold Roberto Cavalli on the Cannes red carpet. She looked fantastic! Blown out voluminous hair and a bold red lip is all that it took to finish out the look in the embellished gown. Love!

The gown was a great pick for Aishwarya; impactful and hugs her curves wonderfully. This was a memorable look and one that sets the bar real high for all her following appearances.

    • No relation to the above comment and let me start out by saying she looks phenomenal in the 3rd and 4th pics but am I the only one who feels the poses in the 1st 2 pics are a bit much?
      She looks flawless in the other 2 pics – the 1st pic is unflattering and I think captured her while she was getting in or out of the pose which caused a wing effect below her right arm and the 2nd pic – is just not working for me.

    • I disagree on that comment..Aishwariya looks stunning but Sonam has been impeccable and sheer perfection through the whole event. Although, both look gorgeous in their own way I will still vote for Sonam’s impeccable fashion sense. Also, for Aishwariya it was more of been there done that and Sonam’s very first appereance

      • I agree with Prep-y.. Ash is ash and sonam is sonam. I think they both bring something truly different to the red carpet and although ash looks phenomenal this time, Sonam has the talent to keep looking pretty all the time. She is consistent,that girl! You have to give her that. and i think she just might be the only one in the industry with such impeccable taste.

    • Noo. Im sorry but ur soo wrong! Ash looks good. Thats it. There is nothing new in this Kristin Chenoweth already wore the dress to Oscars. Trying new is difficult!

    • I think they both look good in their own right. Sonam is more fashion forward and Aishwarya is a beauty queen.
      Glad to see her so confident and that really translates.

      • No Sonam is not fashion forward….. Sonam wore Elie Saab a designer Aishwarya has worn previously. So puleeseee !!!! Neither of them are fashion forward but I think this time Aish eclipsed Sonam in the glamour stakes.

        • Do you really think wearing a certain designer defines being fashion forward or otherwise?? Sonam, in general is known as a fashionista because of her sense, her taste and understanding of the whole subject of fashion, not because of a certain “designer” that she wears. Sure she’s had her share of right and wrong moments, but let’s face it, no one brings fresh to the table as much as she does, and more often than not she scores!

          • you might be a Sonam fan or may be her stylist… but darling, that doesn’t mean you can use your rude comments on other actresses.
            Aishwariya looks gorgeous in this and just about poses… please look at sonam posing… its always the same… one hand at waist and other standing still.

    • That’s a rude comment. This is Sonam’s 4th appearance vs Aishwarya’s 14th. A decade of difference in attitude and fashion. Perhaps you should look back at Ashwairya’s early Cannes appearances and you may change your mind. The fashion wasn’t stellar in my opinion and heaps of mistakes were made. Instead give credit that these beautiful Desi women who have “globalized” Indian cinema and have carved a path for many more.

      • Ideally, I would agree with you. But Sonam had it coming as she called Aishwarya ‘Aunty’ in an interview which I thought was extremely rude (and has been calling Aish ‘aunty-ji’ privately to other filmi-folks). Given that, this comment is very appropriate especially pointing at the age. Ideally one shouldn’t compare two people and celebrate everyone individually (and both of them looked stunning to me) but the age discrimination on the part of Sonam is real.




        0



        0
        • Well i agree Sonam was way out of line and hey if looking like aishwarya rai is looking like auntyji I am sure every women in India would want that. ;-)
          Look at this woman. God probably was in a very good mood when he/she made her.

          0
        • Focus. This is a fashion blog , not about a soap opera revenge because Sonam called Aishwarya Aunty ji. LOL. I was comparing the experience Ash has above Sonam at Cannes. Who cares about age difference between the two, but experience, yes, you can see it in their attitudes and confidence levels on the red carpet at Cannes.




          0



          0
        • & Sonam already said in numerous interviews, that she never called her that. It was as usual a lame attempt from a journalist to drum up some drama & catfight. So, if you have to hate her, you need to find another excuse. ;-)

    • mrs. Aishwarya Bachchan looks good, gold dress and all. But one has to be completely biased to compare her to sonam. Sonam is a fashion icon in India. Mrs. Bachchan is NOT.

    • Why the need to pitch women against each other? Can´t we all just get along?
      Aish is looking AMAZING. she is so beautiful, she will always have an advantage , look how she rocked a gown custom-made for someone else!
      That doesn´t take anything from Sonam or Frieda for that matter.
      I am glad, Sonam took the scene by storm. It definitely forced everyone to step up their game.
      I am also glad Aish´s mind is back in the game. She reminds her haters not to count her out yet, she is not about to handover her crown that easily . & that is good for us all, because more fashion!
      So, what about complimenting both for looking amazing & representing well? Because that is what it should be about.
      I can´t wait for the rest.

      • +1000. Exactly my thoughts. Both of them are beautiful in their own way and look amazing in Cannes. There is no sense in making these rubbish comparisons. Grow up guys!

  2. I had to do a double take!

    Aishwarya has not looked this good/different since I don’t know when! I love her confidence in these images. Here’s hoping she’ll ditch those tents she’s been sporting for the last couple of years.

    • I think, she is in the right mindset now, she is definitely back in the game! I love to see her being playfulon the RC. It´s safe to say, she is about to take over Cannes! :-)

    • Yes, it did & I feel sorry for Kristin, because she is going to loose every fashion face-off. :/
      I thought she was great in it @ the Oscars, but Aish takes it to another level. She really helps the gown live up to it full potential & beyond.

  5. The gown isn’t doing much for me, but I just want to take a moment here and point out – how gorgeous is this woman! I mean, Sonam is stunning, Freida makes it work, but Aishwarya is peerless. She epitomizes that cliche “not of this world”.
    Random ramble aside, not feeling this outfit at all!

  9. I’m embarrassed to say i was refreshing my HHC window for the past hr waiting for you to post this. Aish looks sooo spectacular! It’s not just the dress, the makeup but her attitude where she has embraced herself and her body and is just enjoying her moment in the limelight! This is what a super star looks like…and I am not even her fan!

  10. Im amazed at the transformation. Did she lose tons of weight or is it just the magic of a beautifully cut gown. And shows what a huge difference hair and make up can make. Full marks to her!

  11. wow, I am not an Ash fan but feel jealous of her look here, can’t find a fault with anything, love her make up, lipstick too. I wonder if the designer houses tell these celebs if any other celebs planning to wear their creation as well? anyone know?

  12. She’s back and how !!!! She reminds me her pre-bollywood miss world/modelling days when she oozed such super confidence .. No arrogance … No girly giggles… Just plain confidence… That made her beauty stand out …gorgeous.. Simply!!
    Wonder .. No one said she’s looking so much younger than her age… What wonders good makeup hair styling and confidence can do…..

  13. Ok all that posturing is reminiscent of her Dola re Dola re song in Devdas. But my god, I want this sexy doppleganger to take over the body of the one who waddles around in tents for ever and ever.

  17. I love it when Ash shuts up her critics like this…For all those who called her aunty, not slim enough to be a yummy mummy, please rethink your statements… This is most glamorous one has ever looked on the red carpet…I can’t think of a single look that beats this.

  18. And this is why she’s called the most beautiful woman in the world… i’m so happy to see her NAIL it… haters be warned, there’s a yummy mummy in those anarkalis somewhere :)

  19. After Sonam gave two gorgeous appearances at Cannes ,I thought it would be quite a difficult challenge for Aishwarya to match the fashion standards. But Aishwarya not only matched Sonam but outdid her. Divine. Breathtaking. Really the “most beautiful woman of the world”.

  20. She looks Gorgeous! The gown may no be to my taste but cant fault the look. I was worried that she’d fall short given Sonam and freida did pull off amazing looks until now. I just hope her look for tom is a Cinderella gown from Zuhair Murad or a designer she hasn’t worn before but sadly I think it’ll be tried and tested Armani or Gucci in black.
    Really hope its not an Indian outfit. She’s done enough of those. Notice how all the photographer’s click her pictures- She’s what they would call Cannes film festival royalty.

  22. My heart stopped for a second!! The Lord has definitely carved her face with His own hands!!! Aishwarya in this golden color gownand those red lips is looking like a goddess. No one can even come close to her beauty . She nailed it..! And I can’t miss that confidence she is showing in her poses! WOW!

  23. you can hire best stylists and makeup artists and anyone can look good.. but you can’t buy grace and confidence.. people can complain about Aishwarya not playing designer dress ups all the time but she ROCKS any outfit, something other “fashionistas” don’t manage to do ..

  28. And this is what we have been waiting for , for a very very long time. But after seeing this , it was absolutely worth waiting for. I am so happy for her.
    I can also hear something when i click at the pictures, oh wait a minute that’s Aishwarya having the last laugh. I believe she was hiding her fabulous figure on this trip just to stun us with this red carpet appearance. And i am like a stunned mullet after seeing this. I better stop rambling before dear huusband gets a wrong idea. :-)

  30. Always the odd one out :) I actually don’t feel this look at all. I started reading before I looked down at the pictures and it was like I was reading one thing [expecting greatness as per what I read] and seeing another when I actually looked at the pics. I actually do not dig the gown at all, the makeup or the pose. It looks blaring in all the wrong ways. Above all it ages her in odd way – the makeup.

  33. Every single camera is on her. We didnt see this with Sonam.
    The dress is not my fav. Its the hair and make up that makes her look like a glamourous movie star.




    0



    0
    • & you won´t for a long time, because Aish is a SUPERSTAR worldwide & Sonam is not. Aish walking the carpet in Cannes is almost an institution, Sonam is just getting her name out there with one redcarpet @ time. All cameras are only for the biggest stars of them all, especially when they are killing it like this.

  34. I am neither a fan of sonam, nor aishwarya n not even of freida.
    But I must say our Indian ladies have swooned the foreign audiences with their looks this time!!

    And for Ms. Bachchan… Well she looks so good that it’s better not to say anything. She did shut everyone up damn straight.

  36. I love you Ash! And just to add t the whole debate here, we can’t compare aishwarya and sonam Kapoor. Both are very different personalities. Ash has a powerful personality and that’s what is reflected here. Power and glamour. Whereas Sonam is an intelligent fashionista. Sh thinks about her clothes and appearance. That’s why her looks are always citing edge. But boy, ash is back and how!

  37. Truly, the most BEAUTIFUL woman! best look by far on the red carpet.. nothing can match that face!! she really aced it… not a single flaw… looks ethereal.. beats all by a huge margin!

    0
    • Yes you sure may! We all can see what Aish can do when she puts her mind to it so why is she dressed dowdy (and I don’t mean she needs to wear skimpy or figure hugging outfits) in India? Does it mean that India doesn’t need her to dress well, or frankly speaking to care? Heck, if she’s the Indian representative for India, why won’t she let her beauty shine in India too?




      0



      0
    • Oh thank god.. someone said it.. After years of giving dowdy looks and claiming of being confident of her body / body weight .. she gives us this! Now, this is confidence.. her posture, body language all scream confidence .. some of the poses even seem OTT! This just proves she was not confident of her body image.. hiding behind all those voluminous tents… That is hypocrisy!




      0

  38. She missed her flight and made us wait to see her on the red carpet and boy, wasn’t the wait worth it! More than the gown or the hair or the make-up, it’s her charm that is back! I’m nowhere close to being her fan but I just dieddddd looking at her! Take a bow!

  43. Btw, I think she is crazy beautiful, maybe it is the lighting , wish she had toned down the foundation a teeny weeny bit. She looked ethereal in her airport pics. Also, did u notice that every photographer was practically falling on the red carpet to get her pic? For the other stars it seemed like they were clicking elsewhere. And finally, on behalf of every mom who is too busy to lose those last 10 pounds and hunt for the latest fashions, thank you Ash!!!! Thank u for taking ur time and march to ur own drum beat

  45. I don’t think we should be comparing sonam with frieda or with aishwarya ….this year all them are looking good ….maybe not conceptual or fashion forward ( who really cares) they are film stars they job is to look gorgeous at Cannes … I am glad they didn’t bother experimenting too much …. It’s better to play safe and look beautiful than experiment and look like clowns ! Sonam is lookin smokin hot at Cannes she has finally got makeup rite !

  49. How and how on earth does all this filmy poses comes out as confidence, why cant she bloody stand straight? why is she half-twisted or turned around all the time? I love Aish, but she should stop standing, kissing and waving like a remote operated robot. The dress isn’t anything we haven’t seen! But THAT face!? IS out of this world. She is trying very very very hard to make it work.

  50. The photographers all hogging to take pictures only of her is pure coincidental.
    Most of the L’oreal ambassadors have already left after their red carpet appearances and Aishwarya due to her flight delay was appearing late and hence not too many to appear, she was the only one in limelight

  51. She looks good indeed. But only in comparison to her own past dowdy appearances. There is nothing fashion forward about it. Just a gold gown, that too one which was already worn earlier.
    Her arm pits look gross in fact.

    And putting Sonam down because of this appearance is just lame.
    Sonam is a trend setter. Everything about her AK appearance was perfection and never-seen-before. So please ladies, give the right credit!

  52. drop dead gorgeousness!! 3 points.
    1. why is no one talking about her tremendous weight loss??? This blog was ridden with vile comments with regards to her weight. Cat got your tongue now?

    3. Show’em, Ash. You F&%(&%* rock!

  53. And some folks are claiming why Indian stars are not promoting Indian designers?? Hello…recall Sabyasachi and Vidya Balan disaster last year…. so thrilled to see stars choosing what they feel comfortable wearing and not what is dictated to them! If you want Indian stars to choose from Indian designers then listen up Indian designers, work hard so they choose you! Don’t belittle the stars because they can choose someone over you!

  54. the latest pic of ms rai brings in the freshness and ‘oomph’ she exuded in her early days, something abt being a bachchan bahu wears her out back home, she surely looks much at ease without the maa in law ….this one is awesome, more ‘real’ too. getting to see the plastic smiles more often, this one feels like fresh air….glad to see her livin’ it up

  56. Seriously, all of the pictures that I’ve seen of her in this outfit are just amazing! I also adored Abhishek’s tweet on how she looked I thought it was the cutest thing ever! She really looks like a million dollars and a total diva. She looks so confident and her smize is on point. I really shudder to think of what she’ll look like when she’s back in India though #tents
