Cannes Film Festival: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan photographed on the red carpet (Courtesy: AFP)

New Delhi: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made the first of her red carpet appearances at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday wearing a dress that would make any Disney princesses jealous. The 43-year-old actress wore a powder blue brocade ballgown by Michael Cinco – she was only missing a pair of glass slippers and her Prince Charming. This is Aishwarya’s 16th year at the Cannes Film Festival, where she is one among the knot of actresses and models who represent cosmetics giant L’Oreal. Here are pictures of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in her red carpet look.
