aishwarya rai’s appearance at cannes this year was very anticipated.
ash couldn’t have chosen a better gown for her current size/shape. she worked her intricately beaded deep blue elie saab fall 2011 couture gown with confidence and panache. the long-sleeved gown was covered with embroidery and beading and belted at the waist with a flower accent giving her much needed shape. i am just really drawn to this dress. i find it very beautiful – it is really hard to go wrong with saab, isn’t it?
ash might have wowed at the premiere of ‘cosmopolis’ but her appearance at the amfar gala was kind of a disaster. aishwarya wears an ivory chikan-kari sari with a very heavily embellished gold blouse by abu sandeep. i cannot get over this ensemble. that top is just hideous. the sari could have been easily salvaged had the blouse been different. the heavy sleeves and high neck are all wrong for ash. and that hairstyle is kind of stupid. times like this i wonder if the woman leaves the house without looking into a mirror at times. i mean, a beautiful face can only help you get away with so much. unfort this is not one of those times.
i preferred ash’s casual, off the red carpet looks to the ones above. esp. love her in the black and white angelo katsapsis dress
