Aishwarya Rai In Elie Saab – Prix de Diane Longines

Aishwarya Rai attended the Prix de Diane Longines at Hippodrome de Chantilly in France yesterday.

The Indian actress wore a peach Elie Saab Spring 2011 look with an oversized hat.

Firstly, I really dislike the hat. It’s doing nothing for her.

Secondly, in every picture she’s either holding or covering her stomach which leads me to think of two things.

She’s not comfortable in what she’s wearing, which is impossible because it’s Elie Saab.

Or she’s hiding something.

A baby bump perhaps?

Whatever it is something doesn’t feel quite right about this look and I’m hugely turned off by that.

Fan Bing Bing wore a similar embellished Elie Saab shrug back in March.

Giambattista Valli shoes completed her look.

    The outfit together with a hat the same color is a little overwhelming for any wearer, even if is this fine peachy nuance.

    For the actress, it does not help her much. First of all, she’s got weight. You could see that in the teal dress at Cannes Festival. Here is even more evident that the outfit chosen as fine as it is, does not advantage her silhouette, or her style.

    Yet the outfit is very ladylike, very fine for a royal in her sixties and beyond, unless you could detach it piece by piece and wear them with some more lively wardrobe items.

    She should get another stylist to take care of her red carpet looks.

    She is pregnant.. 🙂 Her Father In law (Amitabh Bachan) tweeted..

    It is confirmed today that she is pregnant! Again no excuse of wearing this but yeah she was trying to hide the bump I guess.

    Unless she’s pregnant, there’s no excuse at all for this. Even if she is pregnant, peach is apparently NOT her colour, and she really needed to re-think those shoes, which are doing terrible things to her legs.

    beautiful baby on board!

    She looked like she was going to the Kentucky Derby or attending a royal wedding. Either way, she appeared quite uninteresting, unlike her past looks.

    i actually like her hat. and the color looks good on her. its hard to look bad when you’re that drop dead gorgeous

  8. Antoine June 13, 2011 at 23:38 #

    Forgive her for the hat !! When you go to the Prix de Diane, women MUST wear a hat. It’s a tradition, (maybe she didn’t choose the good one …)

    This is way over the top, looks like what an 80 year old would wear.

      It’s the same style of dresses for “Royal Ascot”

  10. noo June 13, 2011 at 20:27 #

    regardless of how pregnant looking she is, which is only flattering if she really is pregnant :D, she looks lovely from the hat down 😀

  11. imam June 13, 2011 at 19:46 #

    she must be pregnant, look at her belly

  12. jujunye June 13, 2011 at 18:55 #

    there’s no way she can be pregnant right now… considering she’s shooting for a movie named ” Heroine” , which does require her to be in a particular bodyshape

  13. glycerine84 June 13, 2011 at 18:11 #

    She’s holding her belly because she’s flaunting the watch she is promoting. Plus there is no official news or announcement about her pregnancy so its just a rumor

    Either way I’m surprised she doesn’t seem bothered about the weight gain. She hasn’t bothered to hit the gym or make better choices for her wardrobe!

    Aishwarya looks beautiful, I love the colour on her, the dress is making her look bigger then she is, check out these pictures which were clicked a night before she went to France.

    Ps: I like the hat, she looks cute.

  15. Shaina June 13, 2011 at 16:14 #

    I’m not a fan of this look or the hat, but she looks beautiful as always. No reason to hide the baby bump though–especially when it’s this obvious.

  16. Iris June 13, 2011 at 15:29 #

    but seriously. if she wants to hide her baby bump (her prerogative) there must be better ways to do it than wearing oversized granny clothes that scream ‘lookatme, i’m hiding something’

    • Emi June 14, 2011 at 10:04 #

      You’re so right, but in Cannes she didn’t look pregnant… and it was only a month ago.

  17. Luis June 13, 2011 at 15:20 #

    Hate it…

    I think she’s pregnant.

    I also think that she should not have worn the hat and her hair should have been styled in a loose updo.

  20. Moody Crab June 13, 2011 at 14:04 #

    Um,she’s preggers. It’s all over the news in India

  21. Ann June 13, 2011 at 14:01 #

    Well, she definitely looks pregnant in the pictures you’ve posted.
    Back to outfit – any ideas who designed her shoes?

    • Fashion Critic June 13, 2011 at 14:09 #

      Sorry I forgot to add in my rant, they are Giambattista Valli

      • ahot June 13, 2011 at 15:25 #

        lol @ “I forgot to add in my rant”. She is still beautiful although there is definitely too much going on here.
        My take is she certainly superstitious: when pregnant, you most be modest, & you can’t show off your belly like western women do, if you care for a healthy child…

  22. Smile June 13, 2011 at 13:56 #

    she beautiful as always, first thing came to mind when seeing the picture was ‘she pregnant’

  23. Incroyable June 13, 2011 at 13:50 #

    It is entirely too much, I’m being nice.

  24. Teresa June 13, 2011 at 13:44 #

    When I saw the photo I actually though “What! Since when was she pregnant?’

    • manja June 13, 2011 at 13:58 #

      she looks like she is pregnant to me

      • bibi June 13, 2011 at 14:29 #

        me2 🙂

        • Sukriti June 15, 2011 at 13:54 #

        • Sukriti June 22, 2011 at 06:12 #
