Aishwarya Rai at Cannes 2012 Day 10 : In Elie Saab!

If Mrs.Aishwarya Rai Bachan drew mixed responses with her Abu Janu attire at Cannes 2012, according to me, she upped it many many levels  with this  blue Elie Saab dress. (Its me remember- Elie Saab or Marchesa : I love anything they do!!!).  While i dont love this particular color on her skin tone, for her body type i thought this was SUCH a smart dress choice to make, and out of everything shes worn till now i did like this the best . I would have much preferred it without the slightly tacky waist belt with the corsage, but im not complaining!!! I love those jewelled net sleeves, and sheer neckline!

I love the wafty feel of that train, and if i had post baby weight and was invited to Cannes 2012 (Haha, as if . But lets imagine for a minute) , i would have worn something similar to what Aishwarya wore here

Even though smokey eyes and nude lips were an obvious choice for this gown, i thought Loreal could have done better with her  makeup- it looks a tad dull. That aside, love how this dress moves!

What do you think? Love it or hate it?

PS: Excuse me if regular posting is slow, and the blog might look a bit flooded with Cannes 2012 pictures- i am like busy buying furniture and figuring out what the hell particle board plywood is, and whats the diff between teak wood and sheesham wood. Grown up life. It sucks!

i personally don’t like this woman, but i think she looks stunning here..the gown is so gorgeous..and i love her eye makeup and those dark blue nails..she’s become huge, but she is still pretty..and anyways i think being a little chubby is way prettier and cooler than being size zero..

She could have sported a brighter lippie, she is looking dull here!! The gown is flat erring her petite frame!!

Ya I feel like the lip is too nude. Almost just blends into her skin

I love her gown,beautiful color and such and ethereal sheer fabric,beautiful!!
Indian Designers take note- this is how you dress a curvy Gal-no you don’t put her in a straight jacket blouse or a gunny sack impersonating as a salwar suit!!
I love her eye makeup, guess I’m going to try that out today :D

Exactly. I thought the first rule of curvy dressing was to avoid covering you in cloth fom face down

I dunno why people criticize women for putting on baby weight..its so natural and you can loose it all as well..nwaz I loved that dress and her eyes luk beautiful…n really its a much better look.

Agree. It’s baby weight and it’s totally normal. Specially with dresses like these you can totally make it work for you…

Guess I’m weird but I prefer this curvier version of Aish. The only wo thing wrong with this look is the clutch, IMO. BTW, great blog…I have been snooping for some time now :)

Hi Shruti!
Thanks, snoopers are more than welcome :) :)

I agree with you about the makeup. The lips could use some gloss or something.

OK I am way off the topic, but I can’t stop laughing at the photographer just to her right (I mean to the right side of a person who views this photo)… Looks like he is pretending the camera is a huge gun or something :D

Don’t like her too much but this is definitely one of her better choices. The dress looks great on her! Maybe a brighter lip and some earrings would have been good additions?
