Aishwarya Rai has become an Indian poster-girl for the international audience with her year-after-year appearances at the Cannes Film Festival. On the opening day, she was accompanied by Elizabeth Banks, who is also a L’Oreal brand ambassador like Aish. The other day, she was accompanied by hubby Abhishek Bachchan.

“Dressed from head to toe in high fashion, she wore red peeptoe heels, Swarovski red box clutch, and Swarovski jewels that consisted of teardrop earrings and two rings.”

Sonam Kapoor was the other Indian beauty accompanying Aish during the opening ceremony. This is her first Cannes appearance and a quite honorable one as no other Young Indian star got the chance to be on the same international stage as the Hollywood biggies.

“Being on the same platform as Aishwarya, for me, is a big deal in itself,” the younger actress had cooed excitedly.
