As one of Bollywood's fashion icons, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has rarely put a foot wrong when it comes to her style. On the red carpet, the diva proved why her dressing and her panache is unmatchable as she shut down the Cannes 2018 red carpet in a dramatic purple gown by Dubai-based designer Michael Cinco.

The purple outfit took 3000 hours to be created to be made into a butterfly metamorphosis couture.

Last year, Aishwarya clocked her 17th year at the film jamboree as L'Oreal Paris brand ambassador taking a confident walk with an exquisite three-meter train trailing behind and ensured all eyes were on her. The actor walked the red carpet for the premiere of Eva Husson's French drama Les filles du soleil, starring Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani.

In the hair and makeup departments, Aishwarya chose to let her brightly-coloured gown take the center stage. She kept her accessories minimalistic with just danglers and a couple of rings to round her look.
