Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who has been gracing the Cannes red carpet for last 15 years - she made her debut at the prestigious film festival in 2002 - is all set to dazzle at the upcoming 70th edition of the fest.

The actress will be going to the fest as cosmetic brand L'Oreal's Paris brand ambassador. She will be presenting the film Devdas on May 20 as part of L'Oréal Paris Open Air Cinema, read a statement from the brand.

Aishwarya, who has been a veteran at the Cannes stage, has stunned the audiences time and again with her impeccable sartorial choices. There might have been a few hits and misses here and there, but her appearance is among the most awaited ones each year.

Here's a look at some of the looks that the actress sported at the event in the past decade which had her onlookers spellbound.

Cannes 2016

One of the most sought-after and photographed celebrities at Cannes red carpet, Aishwarya surprised and shocked everyone when she showed up with a dash of purple on her lips. Although her Rami Kadi gown was beautiful, it was her lips that grabbed all the attention and even made headlines.
