Happening In Cannes: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Abu-Sandeep at the 2012 AmFar Charity Dinner

Happening In Cannes: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Abu-Sandeep at the 2012 AmFar Charity Dinner

As expected Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan showed up draped in a unique gold and cream coloured embroidered saree designed by the Abu-Sandeep team of India. This marked a departure from the on-trend western wear fans of the actress have become accustomed to seeing her wear in recent years at Cannes. The new mother of one looked ravishing and carried off the look well enough for a woman who recently gave birth. Hair and makeup were in a word, perfection. This is Rai-Bachchan’s second time attending the AmFar gala, a charity that raises funds for AIDS research, she also showed her support earlier in the millenium when she served as a Cannes juror.

Breaking Cannes: Rumour has it that Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan has arrived in London en route Cannes…

Breaking Cannes: Rumour has it that Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan has arrived in London en route Cannes...

The question remains, what will she wear on the red carpet? Rai-Bachchan who recently gave birth to a baby has been a staple at the Cannes film festival since 2002 thanks in part to her versatile film roles (at least six films from her repertoire have been screened in or out of competition at Cannes) and her duty as brand ambassador for L’Oreal (the official sponsor of the film festival). Now in 2012, on the eve of her 11th consecutive visit to the prestigious film festival amidst cruel commentary about her recent weight gain, the international fashion blogosphere eagerly awaits her arrival. Will she favour one of her new go-to designer houses Abu-Sandeep? Or will she honour L’Oreal by sticking to western wear? Ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee has already squashed rumours that she will be wearing any of his designs. We’ll just have to stay tuned and see.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

If unconfirmed reports are to be believed, Indian actress and recent mum Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan is about to ink a multi-million dollar deal with Kalyan Jewellers of India, a landmark campaign that is also said to also include her father-in-law veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan. According to the Times of India (TOI), Mr. Kalyanaraman of the Kalyan group has gone on record to state that the company hopes to conclude the drafting of the deal within the next ten days. “Aishwarya is enjoying her motherhood. Her office told us that she will be ready for the photo-shoot only after she sheds some weight and is back to her glamorous best,” the executive went on to reveal.  


Rai-Bachchan is no stranger to ad-campaigns, she is currently a brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics and Swiss Luxury Watch brand Longines. In the past, she was the brand ambassador for  Nakshatra diamonds (a division of DeBeers).  Kalyan jewellers (founded by T.S. Kalyanaraman in 1993) is the largest jewellery chain in India and has over 4,000 employees and 32 showrooms across South India, according to

Battle of the Summertime Belles: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Elie Saab vs Monica Bellucci in Dolce & Gabbana


Hippodrome de Chantilly for Longines –  Chantilly, France. June 11th 2011

WHO: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Monica Bellucci

WHAT: Hippodrome de Chantilly for Longines & Kung Fu Panda 2 Cocktail Party during the 57th Taormina Film Festival

WHEN: June 11th & 12th 2011

WHERE: Chantilly, France & Taormina, Italy

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: We’re wondering if these two women called each other up and one said to the other “let’s trend peach coloured lacy beaded sequins summer frocks…GLOBALLY” or was it sheer coincidence that two of the most beautiful women on the planet would show up at two separate events in Europe in similar looking dresses? Any way you slice it, they both look fantastic. 37 and 47 never looked so stylishly good. B+

Cannes Film Festival DAY 2 – Best Dressed Star – Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Armani Privé


WHO: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan

WHAT: ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Screening at the Cannes Film Festival 2011 – Day 2

WHEN: May 12

WHERE: Cannes, France

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: She has  a served as a juror amongst the prestigious Cannes Film Festival jury, walked the red carpet for L’Oreal & AmFar, world premiered/screened four of her own films, dined with the elite in honour of Martin Scorsese and all this while flying a proud banner for India along the way inspiring many to follow in her footsteps. In fact, Aishwarya has been a regular on the Cannes red carpet for ten years now and it’s no wonder why this year she looks like she has truly come into her own. As we take a look back at her fashion triumphs and fails (2003 being the worst thus far) through the years, I think we all can agree that this has truly been a remarkable journey. Stunning in Armani Privé (a designer favourite of hers no doubt), Mrs Bachchan (jr) showed up on Day 2 with unflappable poise ready to play the fashion game yet again and this year, she’s in it to win it.

Cannes Film Festival 2011 – DAY 1 with Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Elie Saab


Jimmy Choo Clutch

WHO: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan

WHAT: ‘Midnight in Paris’ Screening at the Cannes Film Festival 2011 – Day 1

WHEN: May 11

WHERE: Cannes, France

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: This year marks Aishwarya’s 10th consecutive appearance at the prestigious film festival and so it was only befitting that the actress chose to stay loyal to a fashion house that has dressed her exceptional well in the past – Elie Saab. Despite the heavy embroidery involved with the intricate detailing on this dress (or is it a skirt and blouse?) the entire look was understated yet elegant enough to land her atop the list of best dressed divas from Day 1.
