AISHWARYA STEPS OUT OF A FAIRYTALE
At the ongoing 70th Cannes Film Festival, actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked the red carpet with fairytale-inspired glamour. In a powder blue gown by Dubaibased designer Michael Cinco, the 43-year-old served up a big dose of sartorial drama, styled by Aastha Sharma and Rean Moradian. From Cinderella to Frozen’s Elsa, a number of fairytale characters appeared to have been channelled by Ash, according to social network users.
For designers, the look was a total triumph. Manish Malhotra puts it succinctly: “She looks spectacular! It’s an absolutely fresh take on fashion.” For Ritu Beri, the actor’s confidence makes the look a winner. Anupama Dayal sums it up: “Aishwarya basically looks like a fairytale princess, and encapsulates the fantastical mood of the moment.”
