        I agree with the above posters! This look is ALL WRONG!
        The make up is actually terrible, the hair is so so bad, and her innerwear is showing.

        What the heck, after all these years in the limelight and a starlet still can’t get it right. pics made me cringe. bad.

            I agree. and it shows that she’s not comfortable in this dress. and I’m wondering why does she always pose like a model on the ramp? I understand she’s an ex model but come on you cannot pose like that as if you’re on the ramp. others just pose normal but she always have to do this kind of ramp pose..I guess that’s what makes her look uncomfortable..otherwise she’s beautiful.

          The word starlet is appropriate here. Here is the world’s most beautiful woman (TM) and a major star in a decent dress still managing to look tacky. How?

            This seems to be a case of too much hair spray. I absolutely hate it when the hair looks that way. The day is very average. Not working for me.
            I will take the day 1 look over this.

          Couldn’t agree more with you! I hate the makeup and the dress is horrible on her and what makes it worse is the cuff…she looked amazing at cannes last year!

      I so agree!! She looks horrible!! The dress looks bad on her and that make-up…superfug!! I hate that handcuff like thingie on her arm too. eeeww!!

        I think this dress is totally wrong for Aishwariya Rai. This makes her torso look shorter – so its really unflattering to her figure. May have worked on a longer limbed Sonam Kapoor but totally wrong outfit for Ash. Her makeup looks half done. This look fell flat on its face :/

    Usually like her…but sorry her eye makeup is plain awful!!!!! I would’ve done a better job with her eye makeup!!!! She has gorgeous eyes – makeup ppl need to learn to let her eyes do the talking naturally rather than make it smokey and yucky! Dress is good but somehow not liking it on her. Don’t like her hair either! Seriously people, let her be herself and she will be such a charmer!!! Why can’t people do that? Love You Ash!

  11. Sabrina at | | Reply

    much better than yesterday, but…i still think the hair is so weird. she should have gone with it loose and straight-her trademark. i dont think the hair is working at all.

  12. arpitha at | | Reply

    this also looks average….not the 100% aishwarya look.
    all these dresses will look more good on some one younger, active, funny and preferably little toned.
    She looks tired & serious to do complete justice to these dresses. the makeup also looks oily & not fresh.

    The whole look looks similar to a lady in nighty about to take her oil bath with her hair tied up :-)

    1. mumbaimartini at | | Reply

      Haha arpitha my thoughts exactly! The hair instantly reminded me of oil bath time, it looks like it has just been hastily gathered up on top to keep water/oil/shampoo out. And the dress looks too young for her. Maybe loose waves and subdued makeup would have made it work on her.

    Is that an underwear line visible at the waist?? I suspect, yes.

      Hmm.. you may be right. Its too obvious to be shapewear.

    2. xHarmx at | | Reply

      I think the gown is poorly constructed…not many designers can get corsets right – one of the reasons that Kate Middletons dress was so highly applauded was because of the perfect corsetry.

  14. Puja at | | Reply

    its hillarious how sm ppl comments..
    some time they say she need to play color, wear funky dresses.. n thn other time they expect her to stick to her softer slf n straight hair etc..
    For me she is looking awesome.. beautiful dress on a beautiful lady..
    bt yeah hair style cud have been better.. tied up in a better manner bt no classic updo for sure.. something playful..

  15. RS at | | Reply

    Poor Ash, even with that wink and smile she doesn’t seem to be having fun. How tiring it must be to be a celebrity with all this pressure to look good. She is beginning to look a little jaded and she’s hardly that old.I think she needs a good rejuvenating break from the celeb scene so that she can come back fresher and hotter than ever before. One just needs to watch her in Robot to know that she is still an astonishingly stunning woman.

  16. seerat at | | Reply

    Are you guys serious? I think she is giving worst look this year…She has again tired face here and looks uncomfortable in that twisted model pose that wasnt mandatory to give.
    Plus thick eyeliner, hairdo ruining whole look more.

    1. iamcelebrity at | | Reply

      totally agree. Not everyone can stand like a teapot – models do it because they are showcasing a dress and besides they are tall and lithesome. Real life women should keep it natural and keep their arms beside them.
      The pose makes Ash look really broad.

  17. preeti at | | Reply

    for me i think the gown was a bit too tight..the top especially din’t fit well and her assets were kindda squished and were popping out…i din’t even bother to look past that to comment on anything else..read hair and make up…

    Why WHY does she do these strange things to her hair?! Pulled back so tight I think it makes her face look much larger than it is.

  21. Iris at | | Reply

    sorry, she just doesn’t have the attitude for this dress. i can so see this on Sonam!

  22. arna at | | Reply

    I think if she was slimmer she would have pulled this AP dress off perfectly….I see that she is trying very hard to keep it’s shape intact …. her hairstlye not flattering and as one gets older, we have to watch our neck line and profile. Lines may start to appear that may not be as attractive and show up in photos..

  23. zenia at | | Reply

    Why her make-up is greasy this year… giving he a ‘dark’ look…. and she is not smiling / laughing. Looks like brand ambassador of Tommy Hilfiger to me in these colours…

  24. Megha at | | Reply

    it’s quite funny to see a lot of comments on this blog…i was blog jumping and on another blog that is covering all of Cannes, not just the blogger but 90% of the commenters were full of praise for Aishwarya’s look – both yesterday and particularly today

    But here I’m not sure what she would have to do to be good enough. It’s a little bizarre
    Yesterday the look was too boring, today it’s too “out there”??

    I thought she looked beautiful yesterday and she looks outstanding today – hair and all (“oil bath?! really??)

    I’m not big Ash fan but to give credit where it’s due – she looks stunning (and the comment about her needing to tone up is rather sad – isn’t this about fashion only??)

      nw ths is wrd by wrd wt i m doin (blog hopping) n thinking (wt ppl has to say bout her here vs else where)..

      Most Indians like to hate Aish. I think it’s a fad.

      I agree, though. She looks amazing in this dress!

    3. Iamfashion at | | Reply

      Actually a lot f fans of this blog love her. She definitely is the most discussed with her posts averaging 100+ comments. I dislike her and sometimes believe I let my bias get the better of me.

      But in this case she looks tired, jaded (as one commentator put it) and frankly out of shape. Perhaps it is the dress that is highlighting her troubled areas?

      1. Iamfashion at | | Reply

        Actually it is her dress. She looks washed out and odd in this dress. She doesnt’ have the best arms..I know for certain this is the wrong dress on her. She tends to look fabulous in outfits with a bit of sleeve, less hugging clothes…I can think of several designers who would be better for her.

        And here is the deal: We are women. We tend to have a vicious and envious side. We will rip apart something as pretty as her given a chance.

  25. Coco_Chanel at | | Reply

    Are you kidding me? This is so ugly! The hair looks oily and sloppy. Makeup is greasy. And the dress does not look like Armani Prive. What an ugly and disappointing look.

    The dress is awesome, just awesome! When I saw a photo of hers on another site, I thought 10/10, but after seeing these pictures, I was shocked by that thing on her head. What was the hairstylist thinking? In the earlier picture I thought her hair was sleek and tied back. Why o why couldn’t it be that way, would have been perfect for the sleek gown. I feel like crying, my hair looks better when I put it up before my bath. This looks like a nest.

    Yay for no wrinkles on the dress! love the color combo!

    She is clearly having an Armani moment! Go Ash! :D

  33. Baby at | | Reply

    The one thing I take away from this outfit is…

    “Hey cool, Aishwarya is short waisted like ME!”

    While it is always fun to find something in common with one of the most beautiful women in films I don’t think that’s what she wanted to be her main style statement.
    Considering her figure and proportions I can’t help but think that the right side (short side) of the top should have been brought down an inch or two to lenthen her torso just a tad. Other than that it’s a perfectly nice outfit though I feel Aish’s particular type of beauty is better set off in traditional clothes. This is miles better than her usual Dynasty-esque over structured ’80s bling but it seems to me this outfit is something which would have stunned the world on, say, Tilda Swinton.
    Now can you IMAGINE how every human being in Cannes would have been struck silent with awed admiration should Aish come out in full Paro fig?
    She’s born for a fairy tale princess. This, for me, is just OK.

  34. ash at | | Reply

    whats with the weird posing? Its nearly identical to her other cannes pics, its making her look very strange, and the outfit is not the best either. I preferred the previous look.

    1.Bad hair. Seriously.
    2. Muddy bronzer, crazy eye-makeup, misshapen eyebrows. (Snooki has a better makeup artist).
    3. Wrong dress. She should embrace her figure a la Christina Hendricks and STAY AWAY FROM STRAPLESS dresses.
    (I love the gown, just not on her.)
    4.The effing posing. I mean, wtf is the deal with her fish face?
    AWFUL appearance. She looked better in the Elie Saab, and that’s not saying much.

    1. Surekha at | | Reply

      Agree to everything above…. and seriously whats with her posing… she looks so bloody uncomfortable.. will someone let her know that can also stand straight and take pictures and still look good rather than sticking out your bones at all the wrong angles…

    Her hair would have looked so much better if it was pulled back in a pony tail or bunned up. I dont like the make up either which is making her look aged. Such beautiful eyes getting ruined, :(

    The dress is AMAZING. I like this dress better than the Elie Saab one. I also like the two color eye makeup but it could have been toned down a bit.

    She looks absolutely stunning. The dress is divine, the hair fun, and her attitude totally fierce. I love how she feels more comfortable just working it abroad where she is loved almost unequivocally than in India, where there is an astonishing amount of vitriol coming her way. I know I am opening myself up to the criticism that every star is a public persona and hence is rightfully at the mercy of public opinion. However, in her case, Chetan Bhagat summed it up perfectly when he spoke of “Ash-envy”. At any rate, great look!

    Yuck…u guys are kidding right? What is there to like about this look? That weird pose, horrible make up, bad hair and the worst fashion faux pas (red carpet or anywhere) is when you can see the innerwear…she is not even a fashion icon, so let’s not put her on a pedestal.

    I seriously think she looked better yesterday.. Her hair and makeup is messy, and she does look tired.. I do like the gown, although its not very flattering on her.. The Armani prive she wore at the Oscars was much better, and the other exaggerated one-shoulder Elie Saab was also stunning on her.. Somehow this isn’t her best, and the pout is simply annoying..

    Alas! IMAO -The dress is over designed,confusing and the corset is too tight for her.In the last picture Aishwarya looks tired,breathless and like somebody is crunching her.The make up is bit oily and donot understand the blue eyeshadow and gold kohl eye liner combinaton.She is so beautiful without make up yet they succeed in making her look tired& jaded.

    Moreover her poses are so artificial and boring.The pout was totally boring.

    Compared to this she looked so fresh at Oscars!

    PnP, looks like you guys featured the most unflattering pictures of Ash from both days. She looked absolutely lovely on day one and the blue/gold eye make-up on day two was fierce!!

    Love the edgy gown. When it’s a formal event people somehow feel like they need to go back to 1950s fashion. I am huge fan of modernised formal wear. I like how the Olsen sisters dress on the red carpet. Hence, I am partial to this gown, the hair and makeup. But looking at the the pictures for the second time, I do feel like the corset could have been fitted better. Her side boobs are spilling out of it.
    Btw, can’t wait to see what Sonam wears at Cannes! So excited!

    love the dress – just not on her. She needs to cover up her arms and shoulders and neck. Not to get personal, but if this is about fashion, then fashion is about looking your best. this isn’t her best. as someone rightly said, she looks tired. i hate to be so critical of her but this is actually bordering on concern. if after all that makeup and celeb living she is still looking so tired, she needs to take a nice long holiday and forget about all this.

    So true the make-up is as if she got out of some film-shoot… its too much heavy make-up making her look jaded :-S. Also, the dress is so cool .. would have loved to see Sonam Kapoo or Bipasha in it. Ash needs to tone her body to be in this dress. The torso looks so uncomfortably tight that just looking at it makes me gasping for breath!
