The Cannes fashion fever continues with Aishwarya Rai, who starts off her day by alluring us with a radiant look.

She puts on a raspberry red ruffled gown by Desi American fashion designer Naeem Khan, who has dressed the likes of US First Lady Michelle Obama and British royalty Kate Middleton.

Hugging the rays of sunshine and a Mediterranean Sea breeze on a balcony, Ash playfully twirls in her gown with the wind in her soft and loose retro waves.

The only accessory she needs is bright red lipstick and a bouquet full of crimson roses, and there she goes – enchanting us like a princess straight out of a fairytale.
