She’s appeared in only a few English-language productions—most notably 2004′s Bride and Prejudice and last year’s The Pink Panther 2—but Aishwarya Rai, a former Miss World, is a huge star in her native India. And the Bollywood beauty certainly looked the part while in Cannes to debut Raavan, the new film in which she costars with her husband, Abhishek Bachchan. She kicked off a weeklong series of chic, elegant appearances by wearing an ice blue Elie Saab Couture gown for the premiere of Robin Hood. The next day, she posed for cameras in an Emilio Pucci print dress and Christian Louboutin wedges before changing into a black sequined Armani Prive gown for the premiere of On Tour. Rai dazzled once again in magenta Gucci at the Il Gattopardo screening on Friday, and yesterday, she introduced Raavan in a very chic off-the-shoulder Gucci LBD. We’ll look eagerly forward to seeing her on future red carpets after her impressive showing at Cannes!
Evangeline Lilly swept onto the red carpet at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug premiere in a black slightly sheer Alberta Ferretti gown with a lace overlay and tiers of tulle at the skirt, keeping all accessories to a minimum, save for studs and a gold bracelet.
