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.

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.

Sonam Kapoor in a black and white Naeem Khan gown on Day 8 of Cannes 2012

Sonam Kapoor in a black and white Naeem Khan gown on Day 8 of Cannes 2012

Actress Sonam Kapoor (seen here with John Nollett at the L’Oreal and Chopard party last night) always manages to look great in anything she opts to wear but for some reason this Naeem Khan design appears to be wearing her to the prom. She is tall & very slim-fit therefore she can afford to and should always stick to figure defining silhouettes (think Charlize Theron & Nicole Kidman), solid colours and simple cuts. That bow on her shoulder appears to be eating her alive and there is enough fabric in the hoop of her skirt to clothe two other able-bodied fashionistas.
