From being a model to becoming Miss World and taking on the world head on, that is how a celebrity like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan can be described.  Her beauty has been known to people across the seven seas and she is applauded for her style on the red carpet. After making a come-back on the red carpet at the recent Cannes Film Festival she has established a new benchmark for Bollywood fashionistas. BIB takes a closer look at the Aishwarya’s style who has redefined fashion in India.

Aishwarya’s style over the years has evolved; from donning sarees to choosing designer gowns… she has tried it all. The outfits are elaborate, the jewelry is kept to the minimum, the hair is styled and the make-up is glamorous. She usually stays away from heavy, chunky pieces but instead goes contemporary with every new look.  The hair do might be new, the dress would be never seen before on the red carpet and the styling will always fabulous.

Aishwarya has been the very first Indian face for L’oreal cosmetics, a brand ambassador for Longines watch and the first female Indian celebrity to have a wax figurine at Madame Tussauds. Not to forget she was also the first Indian celebrity to walk the glamorous red carpet at Cannes Film Festival. This year she completed her 11th year at Cannes.  Her looks have been criticized and appreciated but the fact remains that she always turned heads. A saree, an Anarkali, a summer dress or an evening gown, no one can look so beautiful in every silhouette like Aishwarya does.

The new mum definitely glowed in the beautiful Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla chikan-kari saree which was combined with an elaborate zardosi detailwork blouse. The saree drape worked well on her post maternity frame while the jacket inspired blouse added structure to her upper body. 

Earrings are either diamond studs or chandelier earrings while the neck is kept bare to focus on the décolletage. Aishwarya seldom wears bangles but has been seen wearing a cuff or a bracelet. She loves to wear cocktail rings on her fingers with every outfit. Heels are her choice when she likes to walk tall on the red carpet.  Over the years Aishwarya’s choices have matured just like her and she knows what really suits her. The best part about her is that she is no longer afraid to pose for the shutterbugs and has more than often shut the fashion critics with her elegant outfits.  Her confidence has been her ‘weapon of choice’ through the years whenever she faced the camera.
