Aishwarya walked the runway at L’Oréal’s show at Paris Fashion Week wearing a Giambattista Valli Fall 2019 look that included feather sandals. Yes, this show was supposed to be all about showcasing makeup but did they really have to go the full-matchey route? It’s borderline clownish. Do stars not have the right to pick their look or is Ms. Rai too nice to say no? I always wonder.
Are you recovered from Cannes red carpet yet? We have, even if for the most part it left us generally meh. If there was one thing that stood out to us, it was the sheer number of white-toned gowns we saw during the film festival.
White is a great pick since it tends to really pop on the red carpet, and when done well, it’s high on impact. But on the flip-side, flaws seem exaggerated too. All said and done, Diana in her Amit Aggarwal sari was our favorite for toeing the ‘sari-but-contemporary’ line well. A close second was Sonam whose tuxedo was definitely high on impact, it’s a pity then that the fit on those pants let her down (see what we said about the flaws).
How did you think our tinsel town ladies fared? Have a favorite?

Day two on the red carpet saw Aishwarya in a feathery white gown by Ashi Studio. After yesterday’s outing, this felt like the safe fallback and while I like a white gown because it stands out on a red carpet a lot more, the heavy eye makeup was a bit of a downer. It looked nice in the closeups but too racoon eye-ish from far away.
“Oh Lord!” That was my first reaction at seeing Aishwarya Rai in this gold snakeskin Jean Louis Sabaji gown. I actually don’t mind the theme of going gold and quite like the back detail but that mermaid-esque bust design and that sleeve was just so so terrible, it was very hard to even warm up to this appearance of her.
