Aishwarya Rai Bachchan closed her stint at the Cannes Film Festival 2016 with a heavily embroidered Rami Kadi gown. What stole the attention away from the beautiful ensemble was her loud makeup, to be specific – the purple lipstick.
While some have appreciated the actress for a taking a “bold” step and not playing it safe, most social media users have trolled her for the choice of lip color. This isn’t surprising, even Sonam Kapoor faced heat for wearing an elaborated feathered gown to the fest last year.
Her purple pout may have gotten some of the internet users busy, but there was much more at the prestigious festival. On day one, Aishwarya walked the red carpet in a richly embellished Ali Younes Couture gown, which was loved and appreciated by many. Husband Abhishek Bachchan was quite taken by her appearance.
“They say a picture speaks a 1000 words. Seeing this photo I can think of many more,” he wrote on Instagram sharing a picture of the actress’ from the day.
Day two was about a tulle Naeem Khan gown and a beaded Elie Saab number, which was topped off with a stunning Rohit Bal ensemble featuring a long metallic jacket.
