It is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s birthday today. The ‘Queen of Bollywood’ is the epitome of charm and grace. From her on-screen presence to her red carpet appearances, it is hard to take eyes off Aishwarya. Talking about red-carpet events, how can we not mention the Cannes Film Festival? Won’t be wrong to say that Aishwarya has ruled the French Riviera for years now. Aishwarya first appeared on the Cannes Red Carpet for her 2002 film Devdas. Since then, the actress has blessed us with many show-stealing outfits. From Roberto Cavalli’s mermaid dress in 2014 to this year’s black corset gown by Dolce & Gabbana, Aishwarya Rai Bachhan has aced every look. Today on her birthday, we have decided to do a quick recap of her iconic looks:
1. Roberto Cavalli’s mermaid dress (2014)
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan came, walked, and conquered. We aren’t the only ones who got mesmerised by her beauty. Abhishek Bachchan couldn’t help but tweet about her electrifying look.

3. The Butterfly dress by Michael Cinco (2018)
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Cannes diaries are all about standout dresses. From bold prints to customised gowns, she knows how to make the fashion police stop. Something similar happened when she walked the red carpet in a dramatic number by Michael Cinco. The butterfly-inspired gown featured intricate handcrafted work and was embellished with Swarovski crystals and French paillettes. The dress came with a 10-foot-long train.
4. Metallic Golden Gown by Jean Louis Sabaji (2019)
She sprinkled stardust on the red carpet in this out-of-the-box creation by Jean Louis Sabaji. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan ditched the accessories and allowed her elaborate ensemble to do all the talking.
5. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Venusian Look (2022)
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the personification of Venus – the Roman goddess of love and beauty when she walked the red carpet in a custom Gaurav Gupta coutoure. The outfit was “inspired by the birth of Venus.” The halo-like element behind her head was the shell that Venus rises from Botticelli’s famous painting The Birth Of Venus.
We would like to end it with a desi look.
Saree with a heavy embroidery jacket by Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla in 2012
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan channelled her inner desi girl when she stepped out in a chikankari saree with a jacket in place of choli. The jacket featured heavy golden work all over.
We know it is hard to fit her Cannes red-carpet appearances on a list but we tried. Hope you liked it.
