Aishwarya Rai in Roberto Cavalli (Cannes 2014)


I have to admit, staying up late yesterday night to catch Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walking the Cannes 2014 red carpet was worth it. She looked STUNNING in a shimmering gold strapless Roberto Cavalli number that hugged her curves beautifully. The hot red lip color paired with her glossy waves added a lot of oomph to the look. Not to mention her confidence on the red carpet! Sonam may be the “fashionista” (self acclaimed mostly) but she doesn’t hold a candle to Aishwarya! She looked elegant and graceful even in this glam bombshell look. Totally red carpet worthy!

Her makeup is absolutely flawless and I’m so glad to see her opt for a bold lip instead of the heavily lined eye makeup + nude lips look that she’s been sporting for the past few years. It looks amazing on her beautiful complexion!

Even though the gown wasn’t custom designed for her (it has already been at the Oscars red carpet earlier) but the waist cinching pattern and the fishtail skirt looked gorgeous on Aishwarya’s figure – very flattering! I can’t wait to see what she wears for her next appearance at the red carpet tonight!!

    Any idea about her lippie? It looks near orange in some pictures!

    • May 21, 2014 / 1:21 pm

      I think this lippie is very similar to the Flaming Kiss in the L’Oreal Moist Matt range

      • May 24, 2014 / 10:50 am

        Hey Nil, L'Oreal says its Lincoln Rose from the Moist Matte range. I'm not sure, it could be a mix of colors as it looks a bit warm in some pics!

    • May 21, 2014 / 10:38 pm

      It is the L’Oreal Moist Mat Lincoln Rose shade…

  2. May 21, 2014 / 7:42 am

    Oh my Ash look stunning, love her look

    Omg she has gone beyond all expectations…all those who had been croticising her for her post pregnancy weight gain must be hiding their faces now…she is beautiful even when voluptous…this marks her comeback to where she belonged…the niche that she had carved for herself in the fashion world.

    I agree with u Ankita…its worth watching her.. 🙂

    No wonder she is called the most beautiful woman in the world. Like u told elegance, beauty, confidence personified!!!

  6. May 21, 2014 / 8:48 am

    The makeup looks very fresh and even the outfit is stunning!!!! But I wish her hair looked a little more styled….it really looks a bit messy (just a wee bit) in a few pics………

  7. May 21, 2014 / 9:42 am

    She is timeless and stunning and there is absolutely no way Sonam Kapoor could have managed a spectacle as glamorous as this one! Just look at that face!

    I think her lipstick is something like.. M’orange from MAC or Givenchy’s Le Rouge Carmin Escarpin. Looks really similar.

    • May 24, 2014 / 10:51 am

      Thanks Divya! I think Morange may be too orange, maybe Lady Danger is closer?

    OMG…..she looks super hawwwtttt…..can you suggest a dupe for her red lipstick here……m drooling over it……:-)

      L'Oreal says its Lincoln Rose from the Moist Matte range!

    Can you please provide the live show of cannens link ankita so that will also review

    • May 21, 2014 / 11:26 am

      Hey Swetha, I don't think it televised. If you want to catch pics and sneak peeks of what they are wearing, keep an eye on twitter and Instgram. L'Oreal Paris India generally gives out the first pics of their ambassadors when they are ready to go on the red carpet.

  13. May 21, 2014 / 11:04 am

    Love the makeup and this time she got it right 100%! 🙂

  14. May 21, 2014 / 11:05 am

    i love her hairstyle..she looks like a true mermaid!

    I agree with every point you've mentioned in this article…
    1. She looks grand.. Total red carpet worthy.
    2. Nice choice of makeup.. The bold lip makes her look fresh
    3. And yes sonam kapoor is a self proclaimed fashionista who doesn't stand a chance in front of this look.

  16. May 21, 2014 / 11:07 am

    She looks gorgeous.. and finally she changed her lipsticks.. beautiful maeup
    I never knew that this gown was already worn

  17. May 21, 2014 / 11:49 am

    She looks ravishing and golden goddess!! The shade looks like Lincoln Rose from Loreal Moist Matte..

    • May 24, 2014 / 10:53 am

      You're quite right! Thats what L'Oreal says though to me it looks a little warmer in some pics. Though its possible that this is how the shade looks on her complexion!

  18. May 21, 2014 / 12:10 pm

    She looks beautiful.. No one can match her.

    Video tutorial please…?

    Any insight into the lip colour? I’m sure it must be from the L’oreal range (but it reminds me of a slick version of “lady danger” from MAC?

    Thank you

    • May 24, 2014 / 10:53 am

      L'Oreal says its Lincoln Rose from Moist Matte range! Though I think another lipstick has been mixed to make the color a little warmer.

  20. May 21, 2014 / 1:06 pm

    Graceful as ever! Lippie is very close to RiRi Woo but not matte like it. I only wish she pays more attention to the skin around her eyes and facial muscle tone. Guess, the weightloss is showing effect but defintely will get toned with time and effort.

      I honestly wish people would stop telling her what to do with her body as if it is their property. She didn’t ‘need’ to lose weight. She doesn’t ‘need’ ‘to improve her muscle tone. She is great actress and has shown herself to be a good human being.

      It honestly angers me when people for the last two years have looedk at Aishwarya Rai and comment on her weight as an extension of their thoughts on the look. Fashion is for people of all sizes, ‘muscle tones’, etc. I wish people would just admire the beauty of the look!
      (Sorry Ankita for the rant but some commenters have been criticizing her for the last two years Cannes appearances too).

      • May 21, 2014 / 6:11 pm

        I agree with you. Aishwarya Rai has got a lot of flak for her pregnancy weight gain for the past 2 years – especially her first appearance at Cannes after the baby. She's always been beautiful and I do admire her confidence for not buckling under the pressure of losing weight immediately after her pregnancy and for walking the red carpet. For someone of her stature, there is so much media and industry attention and pressure but she held her ground !

      • May 22, 2014 / 12:47 pm

        Hi SS,
        If my comment has angered you, I am really so sorry. Though I don’t see any personal attack to anger or offend anyone personally. I guess I didn’t harp on any “need”. Do correct me if I am wrong.

        By standard of awareness and the duration of her tenure in the show-biz, she definitely knows what is best for her. But we always, try to see the best in the people we love, admire and look up to. And I had also expressed my strong confidence that it is a temporary effect and will be okay with time. Would request you not to misjudge my comment. Thanks and regards.

          My question is, for Bollywood actresses, why does best always have to be skinniest?
          Of course, everyone has an opinion about her choice of acting roles when we feel like they are not the best. But I just wanted to point out that she is an actress, not an empty female body for media to mould as they wish.
          And I’m sorry my comment felt like a personal attack. I just wanted to point out what a lot of commenters / critics have been saying for a few years.

    • May 24, 2014 / 10:54 am

      Thanks for the recommendation Debamitra!

  31. May 21, 2014 / 7:50 pm

    She is looking absolutely stunning. I love her bold lips that catches all the attention and her beautiful mermaid gown. Can u plz tell me which lip color is she wearing????

    • May 24, 2014 / 10:59 am

      According to L'Oreal, its Lincoln Rose from Moist Mat range!

      • Nandani
        May 24, 2014 / 6:56 pm

        Thanx dear 🙂

  34. May 21, 2014 / 10:41 pm

    You are right! It was so worth it! L’Oreal ad catchline was very apt indeed.. I had my Uni exams today and there I was sitting around checking instagram.. and I do not regret it even a bit!!!

    And her today’s look is so pretty as well!! The white and gold, the understated lips! Very well done…!! and the hairstyles both days are to die for!!

  35. May 21, 2014 / 11:03 pm

    Sigh! she’s a breathtaking 😀 Stunner mom I’d say 😀

  36. May 22, 2014 / 1:13 am

    She looks so lovely!! I don’t think Sonam even managed to get close to what Aishwarya looked like in this stunning gown. It totally flatters her so much.
    And for all the poeple who criticised her post pregnancy weight gain, well she had just had a baby! Give the woman a break! These people criticize so much over such nonsense issues. Every woman has a right to gain weight during/after pregnancy. It is normal and it is no one else’s business.

    • May 24, 2014 / 10:58 am

      I agree with you. So much unkindness and unpleasant remarks have come her way in the past 2 years!

  37. May 22, 2014 / 10:59 am

    Ankita, please do a video tutorial for this look including all base makeup. L'Oréal claims that lipstick is lincoln rose. are you thinking it s the same?

  38. May 22, 2014 / 11:31 am

    “self acclamied mostly” hahahaa 😀 and wow does Aish look drop dead gorgeous.. it’s the hair and makeup that clinched it – saw this gown on the other celeb (Kristin something?) and her hair and makeup were totally flat.. this look though.. it’s flawless *_*

    • May 24, 2014 / 10:58 am

      I didn't even remember this gown from the Oscars! I think Aishwarya's curves and the great styling totally does this gown justice!
