Aishwarya Rai made her first appearance on the red carpet at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

The Indian actress joined Kristen Stewart for the ‘Cosmopolis’ premiere.

Having just recently had a baby, Rai was radiant wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture gown.

Her midnight blue embroidered long-sleeve gown was accented with a velvet floral appliqué at the waist.

A blue box clutch, tumbling waves and a glossy nude lip colour completed her look.

It’s good to see her back on the red carpet.
