Many fans love her for taking the risks to hike up the fashion quotient.
The Bollywood charm continues at Cannes, as Aishwarya Rai and the Sarbjit team arrive at the French Riviera on May 15, 2016.
Ash attends a press conference in a black and gold Rohit Bal ensemble and accessories with a Deepa Gurnani necklace, keeping it simple yet elegant.
Later, she returns to the red carpet in the evening for the premiere and turns head once again – but this time, with a daring fashion move.
Donning a lavender Rami Kadi off-shoulder gown covered in gorgeous flower beads, she opts for a lilac lipshade that perfectly complements the colour palette of her dress.
But not everyone is in love with her controversial look. Many are shocked by her bold style, calling it a ‘horror show’ and ‘embarrassing’, and coming up with all different sorts of memes and jokes.
& here’s #Aishwarya at Cannes.
Purple lipstick? Really? Purple?
Is it really lipstick or she’s eaten blue berries?? pic.twitter.com/Fr3d54EekU

Luckily, a lot of fans are supportive of her show-stealing look and love her even more for taking such risks to hike up the fashion quotient at Cannes.

With her latest appearance, Ash has proven that she is not only one of the most beautiful women in the world – she is truly on her way to becoming a timeless fashion icon!
The comparison with fellow L’Oréal ambassador Sonam Kapoor is unavoidable, but with a highly-anticipated film coming up and what is deemed to be one of her most memorable performances, Ash will be going strong in 2016.
Her glammed-down avatar and previews of her moving performance in Sarbjit have surprised and impressed audience and critics alike.
The hype for her second comeback film since Jazbaa (2015) is certainly riding high now in the run up to its release in India on May 20, 2016.
Accompanying Ash on the red carpet on her third day are the cast and crew of Sarbjit, including actress Richa Chadha, director Omung Kumar, producer Jacky Bhagnani and Bhushan Kumar.
We are proud to see Aishwarya help bring the brilliance of Indian cinema to the global stage. Coupled with her fashion glamour, what’s not to like?
