Cannes Fashion Alert: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan Silences Her Critics by Flaunting Her Curvy Figure in Elie Saab at the Cosmopolis Premiere

Cannes Fashion Alert: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan Silences Her Critics by Flaunting Her Curvy Figure in Elie Saab at the Cosmopolis Premiere

In Elie Saab, sincerely a stunner, Aishwarya.

In the modified words of American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift…”One day, she’ll be strutting it on the red carpet and all you’re ever gonna be is mean…why you gotta be so mean?”

That was for all the sad netizens* of the world whose negative words caused this woman to be a number one trending topic last week, all because she gained a few pounds to bring another life into the world six months ago.

Our insane addiction to rail thin figures and unrealistic beauty ideals needs to come to a sreeching halt when we see others embrace the skin they are in. Most especially when the majority of people hiding behind anonymity of the internet will never achieve such ideals and are most likely in worse off shape than the people or person they are focusing their negative energy on.

On Day 10 of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan Chills Out in Roberto Cavalli for Her L’Oreal Photocall

On Day 10 of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Aishwarya Chills Out in Roberto Cavalli for Her L'Oreal Photocall

No ifs ands or buts about it, this is a woman who is comfortable in the skin she’s in. Professional and precise & not dancing to the beat of anyone else’s drum, comfort was key as she opted for a tropical inspired Cavalli kaftan on her second day at the film festival this year. Tom Ford sunglasses and Giuseppe Zanotti heels balanced out her resort look as she answered questions from the press team assembled in her suite for the morning photocall. Asked if she had be phased by recent backlash regarding her baby weight gain, she said no and thanked her fans for their love, positivity and support which keeps the negativity from getting to her. As the first official face of L’Oreal Paris in India, she has attended the Cannes Film Festival eleven times in the past ten years.

No You “CANNES” Not Get Lost in Fabric: Three Fashion Offenders from the Cannes Fashion Scene

I’m at a loss here, am I missing something? Why are these tall, statuesque & beautiful fashionistas drowning themselves in fabric every chance they get? First it was Sonam Kapoor, two nights ago in Naeem Khan, then last night the style-flu plagued two more victims as the amFAR gala; French actress Bernice Bejo in an ocean of Giambattista Valli & prom ready swimsuit model Kate Upton in a royal blue three-step-skirted Louis Vuitton. Yes, it’s classy to cover up your bits ladies but please don’t show up looking like the mother-of-the-bride before your time.

Finally my wait is over…………..and I am delighted to see Aishwarya Rai Bachchan take on the Cannes red carpet for the 11th time in a row. Now that is a hell lot of experience for anyone. Aishwarya stunned us yet again with her style options this time around when she attended the amFAR’s  ‘Cinema against AIDS’ event at Cannes yesterday.

Aishwarya opted for a beautiful ‘Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla’ ensemble which was a combination of a pastel color saree and a heavy detail work blouse. I am impressed at the ability of the designer to make Aishwarya look so beautiful in this Indian attire. I am in awe of the detail work on the blouse which had a lot of traditional zaridosi work and chikan-kari work on the saree……………..It was ‘Indianess’ at it’s best.

As for people concerned with Aishwarya’s weight issue…………….why consider it at all when she still…

According to Fashionista,  NBC reported that skinny jeans can in fact cause a nerve disorder called meralgia paresthetica.  But don’t toss your jeans just yet!

Dr. Karen Boyle told ABC that tight jeans may cause nerve compression which leads to symptoms like numbness, tingling, and pain.  Fashionista made a good point, saying the doctor didn’t speak about “muffin top syndrome”.

Want to throw on a pair of heels with those jeans? Wait, since that can increase the pressure on the nerves of the leg and exacerbate symptoms. To avoid this problem, wear looser pants. Dr. Boyle recommends jeggings or jeans that have a little stretch. Dr. Robert Rhee told the New York Times that we are not in the midst of a skinny jean nerve damage epidemic. In fact, he encourages you to wear them:

“Clearly the scenery in New York is enhanced by tight jeans as long as you…
