Some people called it the “Kaala Khatta” syndrome, others were reminded of Joey from Friends’ Ichiban lipstick.  Love it or hate it but you cannot ignore it – Aishwarya Rai’s bold lipstick at the Cannes Festival 2016 of course ! The L’oreal Paris ambassador walked the red carpet for a french film premiere titled Mal de Pierres (From the Land of the Moon). She wore a Rami Kadi “May Blossom” Floral Embroidered Gown in a pastel lilac shade with de GRISOGONO jewellery.


Keeping with the whole purple theme- even her nails were deep purple, she decided to get experimental and splash a bit of lavender on her lips. While I have to admire the bravado, I also wonder whether being brave for the sake of fashion forward-ness is really needed? Maybe a slightly warmer color in the pink-lavender family would have been better?

What do you think of her look ? Has Aishwarya inspired you to try purple lipstick ? Pitch in your views in the comments section below.
