Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan attends “Outrage” Premiere at the Palais des Festivals during the 63rd Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.
Aishwarys Rai has often been criticised for favouring western couture over Indian ensembles during her much publicised stints on the French Riviera but this time, the Bachan Bahu will be seen in a traditional outfit for Raavan’s launch at Cannes.
“Aishwarya is in Cannes for L’Oreal every year as part of the International Dream Team of L’Oreal where on instruction she must wear international western designer wear,”
the actress’ spokesperson said.
“This time since the Raavan red carpet is also an occasion, Aishwarya will be wearing an Indian outfit for that which she had already planned,” added the spokesperson.
The Bollywood actress, who is one of the best known Indian faces across the globe, will wear a creation by designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. She had earlier chosen a sari by the same designer for her appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
“I have given her many outfits for her stint at Cannes this year because she wanted to wear something Indian this time but I am not sure which dress will she be wearing,” Sabyasachi told.
So far Deepika Padukone is the only Indian celebrity to take the six yard route to style at this year’s festival.
She stepped out on the red carpet for the premiere of the film The Tournee in a cream and gold Rohit Bal creation which she teamed with Kundan jewelery and a stone studded clutch.
