Aishwarya Rai Bachchan popped against the Cannes red carpet on day seven in blue Gucci and fuchsia pink lips.
In a dramatic departure from her favoured palette of black and white, Ash wore a one-shouldered teal blue satin dress at the premiere of the film Behind the Candelabra. Instead of her usual smoky eyes and nude lips, Ash kept her eyes simple and wore bright pink lips.
Fashion redemption after the previous day's voluminous Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla anarkali? Yes.
But wait. She still didn't get it right.
Ash scored a perfect 10 with the bold colours but ruined the look with a severe, sculptural hairdo which was much too harsh for her face. We've been hoping to see Ash with her hair up since she walked this year's red carpet in black lace Elie Saab, but this too-high chignon wasn't what we were looking for.
Also an outfit downer was the black clutch she accessorized with.
Overall, 5 on 10 for Ash's third red carpet showing at Cannes 2013. This, on a day that American actress Sharon Stone also wore blue, to stunning effect.
