Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wore an extravagant golden Elie Saab gown for the fourth day at the Festival de Cannes, attending the premiÃ¨re of The BFG (short for Big Friendly Giant), based on the Roald Dahl book, and directed for Disney by Steven Spielberg.
Rai Bachchan, easily one of the most photographed women at the Cannes Film Festival, was rivalled by her fellow L’OrÃ©al Paris spokeswoman Blake Lively, who shone in a bright blue Atelier Versace gown and showing off her baby bump once more.
Rai Bachchan wore lipstick from the L’OrÃ©al Paris Pure Reds collection, with jewellery by Boucheron and shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo, marking her 15 years at the Festival.
Thai actress Araya A. Hargate also represented the French cosmetics’ giant, wearing a Zuhair Murad gown. BÃ©rÃ©nice Bejo also chose Versace for her red-carpet walk, Mallika Sherawat wore Georges Hobeika with jewellery by de Grisogono, and Paz Vega wore StÃ©phane Rolland. Former Miss France Flora Coquerel also attended the premiÃ¨re.
Jordanian lawyer Ola Alfares, Chinese actressâ€“singer Li Yuchun, a very dapper-looking Jing Boran, the Chinese singer, and US drag queen Miss Fame represented L’OrÃ©al Paris in their respective markets.
It was the first appearance for the company for Thylane Blondeau, the 15-year-old daughter of the recently separated Veronika Loubry and Patrice Blondeau. She would be the youngest “face” from the French brand to appear on the red carpet at Cannes.
