Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who has been at the receiving end of critics for her post baby weight gain, lived up to her ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ title with her graceful appearance at the Cannes red carpet in a cream and gold saree.
The actress was spotted wearing a grey and white maxidress by Australian designer Angelo Katsapis earlier in the day but later opted for the cream colour saree with a golden embroidered full-sleeved blouse by Indian designer Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla for AmfAR Cinema Against Aids gala.
With her hair piled high and adorned with a gold band, the actress kept her make-up minimum.
This is the 38-year-old’s 11th year at Cannes as a L’Oreal brand ambassador, and her first red carpet outing since the birth of daughter Aaradhya last November.
Her Cannes wardrobe was kept a closely guarded secret and it was reported recently that she would be wearing Indian outfits instead of the usual haute couture gowns she sports every year.
Her post-pregnancy weight gain had attracted criticism, so there was much curiosity about her appearance at this year’s Cannes.
