Cannes 2019: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her first red carpet

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a legit Cannes legend and nothing can dim her sheen, not even a dress that was meant to enhance it but didn’t quite do that. The 45-year-old actress made her first red carpet appearance this year at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival in a metallic mermaid silhouette gown by Jean Louis Sabaji – a molten gold creation with green undertones in a snakeskin effect fabric.

The dress had a single sleeve and a pleated train. For Aishwarya, it was a look as unexpected as could be – it seems to be a year for sartorial surprises at Cannes, after Deepika Padukone’s eye-popping green and turban outfit – and while she fared as well as anyone possibly could in so difficult a dress, as many eyebrows were raised as jaws were dropped.
