Ash looked spectacular drenched in a strapless gold dress that showed off her curves.
When it comes to stunning Bollywood beauties, the name Aishwarya Rai Bachchan frequently passes our lips.
Former Miss World, Ash is considered by many as one of the most beautiful women on earth.
She has ruled as the Queen of Bollywood for over two decades, and while recently she has stepped away from the limelight to look after her daughter and husband, she still remains as bewitching as ever.
DESIblitz takes a look at some of the most gorgeous looks of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
1. Aishwarya in Dhoom 2
With item songs and sexy women becoming a regular feature of big blockbuster films, one who forever remains ingrained in our memories is that of the super hot Ash in Dhoom 2.
Whether it was it was a bikini and a mini skirt or tight leather pants, Ash’s bronzed body and curly locks oozed sex appeal in ‘Crazy Kiya Re’.
It did help that she was dancing for Greek God Hrithik Roshan at the time.
The pair probably make the most beautiful on-screen Jodi that our generation has ever seen.
2. Aishwarya in Dabboo Ratnani Calendar 2013
Reserved for only the Bollywood elite, Ash has long graced the sought after Dabboo Ratnani Calendar which releases annually.
Her 2013 shoot was particularly special as it was her first post-pregnancy shoot, and we have to say that she looks as glamourous and beautiful as ever.
Even Dabboo admits that Ash is one of his favourite actresses to shoot, and it is easy to get lost into those sultry come hither eyes as she lies suggestively on a bed.
3. Aishwarya as Umrao Jaan
Ash has the perfect look to play the tragic Madhubala-esque courtesan of Indian period films.
Remember how she stunned in the regal innocence of Paro in Devdas? Holding out diyas for her lost lover Shahrukh Khan, she played her role exquisitely.
Or how about her mini cameo in Bunty Aur Babli for the item song ‘Kajra Re’ where she enraptured both Senior and Junior Bachchan with one ‘palat’?
But it is perhaps her portrayal of the tragically haunted Umrao Jaan that really stole our hearts. While the film was not received as well as the original 1981 film, Ash’s look in the film was mesmerising. No wonder Abhishek couldn’t keep his eyes off of her!
4. Aishwarya as L’Oreal Ambassador
As the epitome of Indian perfection, it is only right that Ash is the brand ambassador of one of the world’s most popular beauty enterprises, L’Oreal.
Having joined in 2000, Ash remains one of the prominent faces of the brand, even after young heroine’s Sonam Kapoor and Freida Pinto were signed up.
In her most recent ad for L’Oreal, Ash still proves that after 14 years, the 41-year-old has what it takes to be an international cover girl and beauty icon.
5. Aishwarya at Cannes 2014
Cannes is always a very special time for Aishwarya fans. We all sit together in eager anticipation for her to make her red carpet appearance for the whole world to see.
Of course, Ash doesn’t always get it right every single time. But her most recent outing on the red carpet was probably one of her finest.
With flowing brunette locks and shocking red lips, Ash looked spectacular drenched in a strapless Armani Prive gold dress that showed off her voluptuous motherly curves.
Even post-Aradhya, Ash shows she still has the ability to knock hubby Abhishek’s socks off. Even though he arrived a few days later, he took to Twitter to exclaim:
“Almost 52hrs without sleep! Eyes shutting… and the Mrs. Shows up looking like this!! Ok.. Eyes wide open now!”
Whether on film, on a photoshoot or on the red carpet, Aishwarya continues to dazzle us with her beauty and lush charm.
Of course it’s not possible to limit Ash’s stunning features to only 5 gorgeous looks. So enjoy our gallery of a few more of our favourite Aishwarya images!
