    Awesome is a small word for this fascinating gown. I want a dress immediately in this romantic and dreamy color.

    It’s a pretty gown and she looks lovely. I don’t like the ‘match much’ eye shadow because it draws (my) attention to her uneven (arch) eyebrows. She’s also had very similar hairstyles throughout Cannes and it’s boring. Wish she would have tied a simple knot, then the necklace would have stood out as well.

      may be the side swept hairstyles are to hide the uneven eyebrow :-)

    Agree with the comment re: green eye shadow; I always think green goes great with purple in any case. BUT, I’m not complaining. Love the color of the dress, and Aishwarya does look dreamy.

    It’s such an event appropriate look since it’s a Gala not the regular Cannes Red Carpet. Very feminine, very easy on the eyes. And that color is the winner. What a fabulous Cannes year for Aishwarya. She displayed a pretty good diversity and looked elegant and effortless in every look. Hoping she puts similar efforts while in India too. Coming after such a dramatic Ralph & Russo look that people might find it underwhelming. But this is once again a winning look. That Harry Winston Neckpiece is to die for!!

    She looks good but the dress feels very similar to the green ellie saab

    Hey! This is not a red carpet, and everybody was dressed down. One gotta sit in the gown for 2-3 hours, so they better pick something comfortable to wear. Aishwarya chose this dreamy number, and I love her makeup too. She looks simply gorgeous! I would wish she played up her hair a bit, but stunning nevertheless. She slayed Cannes this year. Sonam and Katrina, please take notes.

    1. Alba at | | Reply

      Uncalled for to bring Katrina and Sonam down.

      I am proud of all the three leading ladies actually. All three – Ash, Katrina, and Sonam – brought their own individual style and take to Cannes. And yes, I did think Katrina did great with her choices (except the red hair). Sonam was a knockout in the royal blue and other day and formal events. Ash was super! This was probably the most consistent (in a good way) she’s ever been at Cannes!

      1. shwetha at | | Reply

        Completely disagree
        Kat and Sonam must take serious notes….that is if they ever get an invit again

        1. Sammy at | | Reply

          What is with this Sonam and Katrina bashing??? Ash looked brilliant this year, no doubt about that. Amazing picks, wonderfully styled. But she had years of disasters before she finally found her groove in her 40’s. Remember those Neeta Lulla disasters at past Cannes?? Sonam and Katrina are still young.

      2. Fashion4pas at | | Reply

        Sonam and Kat need to take notes?! Going by that logic Ash would need to take notes from Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, Charlize Theron Natalie Portman….

      great point

      Let alone comfort, this is gala and not a redcarpet event.
      At a gala, you cannot be trying to steal the scene and be overdressing, unless you are Lady Gaga or Cher.

      This is very appropriate without the runway cape or the train.

  7. kanchanmasi at | | Reply

    There seems to have been no thought put into her appearances this year. Same old same old! Same hair for every appearance.
    Same sleeveless/strapless gowns day after day.
    So boring.

    And to put the icing on the cake, she wore the same Chopard star earrings today as she did last night!

  8. Mads at | | Reply

    That is a dreamy color… Absolutely angelic she looks!!

  9. Neharika at | | Reply

    i don’t like it! It doesn’t suit her body type & it doesn’t define her waist very well. Reminds of a ponds ka ad which I would see as a kid. But her face is heavenly. Neck up no complaints .

    1. Ritika at | | Reply

      I agree..the gown does nothing to flatter her shape. I would call it bad design. Of course that doesn’t take anything away from her gorgeous face though!

  10. Neharika at | | Reply

    Also am I the only one who has gotten bored of Ellie Saab gowns? They are starting to melt into each other. Also I think this dress would be perfect on Fan Bing Bing. Loved her floral attire on the red carpet. She would have rocked this look.

  11. Zeen at | | Reply

    So dreamy! Beautiful gown and lovely make-up. Loved all her appearances this year.

    P&P,

    Can you do a fun post asking people which Indian actresses would they like to see at Cannes?

    I think it would really awesome & nice to get everyone’s thoughts on this.

    1. Maya at | | Reply

      Only 1!! DEEPIKA!!!

      I’m fine trading Sonam and Katrina for Deepika. Lol

      1. JO at | | Reply

        DEEPIKA and only DEEPIKA !!!!!!
        ok, and Aishwarya too :)

      2. deb at | | Reply

        Deepika plssss!!!

      3. Jiminywiminy at | | Reply

        So totally agree with this comment. Ash+deepika. Such a winning combination!

    2. bweeze at | | Reply

      Kangana. Without a doubt.

    3. Div at | | Reply

      I agree. Its a fun idea. I would pick Anushka sharma.

      1. Div at | | Reply

        But wont trade sonam for anyone :)

    4. Princess G at | | Reply

      Kangana for all the Drama she may bring and Deepika,

    5. Violet at | | Reply

      You’ve got yourself a mini post here itself ;) I’d like to see Deepika

    6. Neharika at | | Reply

      I would like to see Ash, Kangana, Sonam and Deepika on the red carpet.

  13. ZA at | | Reply

    This ones a winner! Great color and she looks amazing.

  14. zainab at | | Reply

    The Cannes people could have put a little more effort on her hair too. She has had almost the same hair style this year!!

  15. Maya at | | Reply

    The gown is pretty and the color is fantastic, but she looks tired and somehow more aged compared to the other appearances; maybe it’s just the photography. Her eyes are bloodshot and the purple shadow didn’t help. Would’ve liked to see her in an Indian outfit instead of the same type of dresses.

    1. sheni at | | Reply

      agreed. somehow this dress doesn’t really flatter her like the oscar de larenta one.

  16. pragya at | | Reply

    She looks dreamy,angel & stunning.She has just rocked Cannes & proved that finally she is the only queen…
    Loved all her outfits & appearances.

  17. Mm at | | Reply

    Didn’t someone else wear this gown earlier??? Can’t recall if it was Sonam…..

  18. Rana at | | Reply

    The problem likely is extreme closeups. As someone else mentioned, the blood shot eyes and purple eyeshadow age her too much. She looks tired and older here.

  19. Sam at | | Reply

    Why does her eyes look so red in all her appearances?

  20. tuuhi at | | Reply

    Seems like her “lenses” are reacting her eyes. Her conjunctiva is injected

  21. Ranij at | | Reply

    My least favourite of all her looks at Cannes and I still loved it! What a fab year for her at Cannes! She has carried everything so well! Hair up wild have made a nice change but even this hair is probably shorter and different to what she has had all these years

    1. Ranij at | | Reply

      I mean hair up would not wild!

  22. Lemon at | | Reply

    She looks lovely. Very dreamy.
    Also, I’ve been finding the comment section of all the Cannes posts sooo nasty. People are really bringing their mean girls out. Gosh, I wish everyone would calm down. This is not the olympics of fashion, where we need to pit them against the other. They are three women with very different styles and you don’t have to like what they wear but there’s no reason to get personal.

    1. Ayesha at | | Reply

      I know, whats with all the ‘watch and learn’ comments aimed at katrina and sonam?! Agree aish looked great this year but shes hardly a fashion plate all these people are suddenly hailing her as this year. Don’t think sonam has much to be worried about. I personally found the ‘oooh i think I’ve just died and gone to heaven by looking at aishwariyas face’ really creepy and ott.

  23. megz at | | Reply

    Is there any specific reason why the Hair & Make up for all has been so…amateurish, to say the least…everyone’s been wearing ‘matchey’ eye make up and no drama in the lip color as well…the hair, well – looks like the hair guy was disinterested and left both katrina & aishwarya’s hair as is for all events…

  24. Div at | | Reply

    Same ol hair :-/

  25. Chaitali at | | Reply

    1. The dress would work wonders for girls in their late teens or in their 20’s..not sure about the one’s in their 40’s
    2. Make up too matchy matchy
    3. Same old hair
    4. Looks exhausted ( This I can ignore because she might be on a really tight schedule)
    5. Her only good appearance at Cannes was the Ralph and Russo!

  26. fashion-lover at | | Reply

    Neck above – beautiful and ethereal…but the gown is a big miss…neither the color nor the shape is doing anything for her

  27. FINAL VERDICT at | | Reply

    this year unarguably belongs to aishwarya.she has surpassed all expectation and emerged as a true fashion icon.beauty with brains with a dash of aura!!!

    1. Avani at | | Reply

      Very true.

  28. Avani at | | Reply

    Gorgeous and definitely dreamy.

  29. Rajee at | | Reply

    The color looks lovely on her. But I wish the make up was a bit simple. Still a winner.
    I think Elle Fanning had worn a similar gown at her Maleficient premiere.

  30. Shreya at | | Reply

    The gown is very princess Elsa

  31. Farrah at | | Reply

    She looks terribly exhausted!

  32. Megha at | | Reply

    Totally agree with Chaitali above except the only look I really liked on her was the claret Oscar de la renta! The Ralph & Russo outfit was beautiful but I felt her hair looked too greasy and make up needed some colour! Also this year all 3 ladies have been quite disappointing (except Sonam’s Sandeep Khosla saree & her Ralph & Russo outfit & hair were gorgeous but make up scary!) and just too many Elie Saabs to digest!! I used to feel his clothes were exclusive but Either he is providing gowns free for Cannes or the other designers have just vanished! Can’t bear to see another Elie Saab on this page puhleaseeeee!!!! And this outfit definitely not for her…Makes her look quite plum and make up is pathetic!

  33. Megja at | | Reply

    Oh & would love to see Kangana on the Cannes red carpet! I feel see has a great style sense of her own rather than blindly depending on stylists!!

  34. Hepburn at | | Reply

    she looks divine here! love it!

  35. mary at | | Reply

    So it did not occur to anyone including her stylist, makeup artist, PR persons, family and most of all Aishwarya herself that she had been sporting the same hair during all of her appearances????

  36. Aditi at | | Reply

    Stunning!!!! Just wondering is it the sleepless nights that’s giving her such tired n injected eyes..

  37. Debashree Hazarika at | | Reply

    Where have I seen this dress before!!!

  38. frm pdx at | | Reply

    This gown is just ok. Nothing to write home about. Hate the matchy matchy lavender eye makeyp…….looks too juvenile…..like she is going to prom.

  39. chicagirl at | | Reply

    She always wears dat gold bangle/bracelet on her left hand, doesnt she?anyways, she’s looking great!
