Aishwarya Rai In Ralph & Russo Couture – ‘Youth’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai In Ralph & Russo Couture - 'Youth' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai attended the premiere of ‘Youth’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 20) in Cannes, France.

The Indian beauty made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up again, sweeping the red carpet in this architectural design from Ralph & Russo’s Fall 2014 Couture collection.

Aishwarya tends to go for the more glamazon gowns, leaving the more artistic pieces to her fellow L’Oréal ambassador Sonam Kapoor, so this look was unexpected but very much welcome.

We wanted drama and Aishwarya certainly delivered, but is this her best so far at Cannes?

    Love this. This is right up there with Fan Bingbing’s Ralph &Russo gown at the opening ceremony.

    • lauren May 22, 2015 at 18:28 #

      Totally agree! The Queens of Cannes are always Aishwarya and Fan without a doubt.

    Stunning, but will look better with red lipstick.

  3. Amy May 21, 2015 at 08:57 #

    Ralph & Russo are on a roll. Their designs have been real good so far. The dress is very dramatic and that’s the kind of piece you want to see at Cannes. major

  4. Marisa May 21, 2015 at 04:24 #

    I prefer her in another dress though. This one looks a bit chubby, also seems like today she walked very slow. Till I can’t see other models. 🙂

  5. siri May 21, 2015 at 04:20 #

    It is just looks like a pile of taffeta , or some kind of walking closet . I believe she tries to make it dramatic , but it is just a hot mess ! If you see when she was walking on the red carpet ,this look didn’t support her as well.

  6. Phoenix May 21, 2015 at 02:46 #

    Lovely dramatic gown perfect for Cannes! She looks terrific!
    I much prefer the runway version which seems more like artwork/architecture than Rai’s. But theres no denying that she pretty much stole the show today.

    • Phoenix May 21, 2015 at 02:53 #

      Actually, mostly I’m in awe of Ralph & Russo. They pretty much kick ass.

  7. Arie May 21, 2015 at 02:39 #

    Stunning! The Queen has claimed her throne

  8. Chloe May 21, 2015 at 01:16 #

    so on point

  9. jessica May 21, 2015 at 01:07 #

    WOW!!! STUNNING! I was waiting for a moment like this with Aishwarya! Like last year’s Roberto Cavalli’s liquid gold gown! She shut it down! Definitely my BDOTW and on my list for BDOTY!

  10. Nancy May 21, 2015 at 00:07 #

    Aishwarya worked the red carpet like a magician. What a fabulous red carpet moment. Stunning, ravishing and sensational. My favourite by far in the entire film festival.

  11. Aminet May 21, 2015 at 00:00 #

    FC, please feature her Georges Chakra- it was stunning! This also looks fab, but the heels are dated and don’t work with the look. xx

  12. jo May 20, 2015 at 23:03 #

    That’s my favourite look from Cannes so far

  13. Ana May 20, 2015 at 22:46 #

    Gorgeous. I love architectural designs like this one.

  14. viral May 20, 2015 at 22:45 #

    I am at a loss for words! Madame shut it down!!! This wipes the slate clean for all her past blunders at Cannes ! Wow just wow! Hair make up the fit of the gown everything finally matches up to her level ! PERFECTION!! BDOTD BDOTW and a sure fire contender for BDOTY !

  15. justme May 20, 2015 at 22:38 #

    This is indeed her best so far.

  16. alvaro_spain May 20, 2015 at 22:05 #

    The hair should have been up!

  17. Ramsay May 20, 2015 at 22:04 #

    This is definitely the best look today
    It’s not to my taste tbh – I find its charm a bit too easy / obvious but that’s just me
    Good hair and make up

  18. Rebecca Z May 20, 2015 at 21:47 #

    It is a spectacular dress and she is gorgeous, but it doesn’t work on her the same way as on the model–the angle of the top of the bodice is lost and the short front is too–is it twisted on her body to the left? It is gorgeous, but not quite as gorgeous as it could be.

    • Cara May 20, 2015 at 23:54 #

      I agree – the model wore it better

    • Lashae May 21, 2015 at 01:54 #


    • Ange May 21, 2015 at 03:25 #

      i prefer the way the model wears this dress. The dress looks too bulky on Rai.

  19. TinaMayJones May 20, 2015 at 21:40 #

    Best dressed at the entire film festival!

    • TinaMayJones May 20, 2015 at 21:41 #

      And the best Ralph and Russo gown we’ve seen!

  20. Karen May 20, 2015 at 21:39 #

    Like you said yesterday, slay mama SLAY!!!!!

  21. Jazz May 20, 2015 at 20:51 #

    BEST SO FAR. This is gorgeous!!

  22. Sandy May 20, 2015 at 20:48 #

    She had an amazing day, both this and the Chakra were amaxing!

  23. kane May 20, 2015 at 20:44 #

    They did make us wait this year, didn’t they! Went straight onto my BDOCannes and BDOTY lists.

  24. tim May 20, 2015 at 20:43 #

    HORRIBLE ! she is trying way too hard, the gown looks really bad on her, one of her worst choices ever.

    • Shoeul May 20, 2015 at 20:57 #

      LOL you say this for each of her appearances, Crystal. Grow up and admit that she slayed it while Katrina was a huge dud.

  25. meme May 20, 2015 at 20:41 #

    Stunning. Simply stunning.

  26. Damien May 20, 2015 at 20:38 #

    Now this is what I was waiting for. Aishwarya lyk asemrowend! (She is breathtaking)

  27. Neharika May 20, 2015 at 20:13 #

    I love it but I miss a pop of colour . Something ! Red nails, emerald earrings, dark lips . This just stopped from being a wow look!

  28. Ariya May 20, 2015 at 20:09 #

    Yesssss! She is WERQING the hell out of this.
    Such an exquisite dress on an exquisite woman.
    Ralph and Russo really bought it this year. Ready to crown them Canness’ Couturier.

  29. EmmaWoodhouse May 20, 2015 at 20:09 #

    Another BDOTY contender–this is glorious, fanciful, and an all-around delight. Just magical.

  30. Nat39 May 20, 2015 at 19:59 #

    Yes! The drama, the architecture…R&R continues to deliver. This is standoud, exciting, full of flair, and she wears it with charm and confidence and looks worthy of Cannes. Not a fan of the tacky-ish sandals but it’s still a success for Rai. Won’t beat Fan’s opening ceremony masterpiece but def. one of the top best of the festival.

    • james May 20, 2015 at 21:13 #

      I once again agree with you! At least someone who looks glamorous without being a snoozefest. My number one remains Fan too but Rai gets a spot on my top 2 lol!

  31. anmon May 20, 2015 at 19:56 #

    certainly the best dressed at Cannes this year. Her beauty is just beyond description. dresses become more beautiful and alive when she wears them. just so elegant she is. she deserves to be on the BDOTY/BDOTW.

    BTW, she also wore a Georges Chakra earlier today. so please cover it too if possible! 🙂

  32. Shoeul May 20, 2015 at 19:55 #

    Bellisma. She is the most beautiful and the most intriguing stars at Cannes. I can look at her pics for hours, good or bad, although they’re mostly good!

  33. from-chitown May 20, 2015 at 19:52 #

    This is how you do drama!! Full justice done to the Ralph and Russo couture. She is working the red carpet like a diva. She is definitely the Queen of Cannes for me this year. Needless to say this is another contender for BDOTY. She looks stunning.

  34. Aman May 20, 2015 at 19:49 #

    PERFECTION!! UTTER PERFECTION!! This year Aishwarya has killed it, nailed it and every possible adjective for her stunning appearance. Can’t believe we still have one major Red Carpet Event of Amfar left for tomorrow. God bless you Aishwarya!! You are still the best!!

  35. Rahul May 20, 2015 at 19:49 #

    Aishwarya looks magnificent. I saw the live footage and she actually shut down the Red Carpet! An exquisite gown on an exquisite woman.

  36. pinksugar May 20, 2015 at 19:48 #

    This is exquisite! I was wondering if anyone could do this gown justice and leave it to her. She looks amazing. I also love the Chakra she wore earlier in the day as well.

  37. Charlotte May 20, 2015 at 19:45 #

    This is unexpected from her, it’s a nice change !
    She looks gorgeous, I wish she had wore a dark red lipstick.

  38. tinsel May 20, 2015 at 19:43 #

    She’s really gone crescendo with this one. Drama done the right way. I love this dress and she even changed her lipstick after appearing in the same dark red shade in most of her Cannes outings. I’ve also greatly enjoyed her press looks: the Sabyasachi floral dress, Stella McCartney pant outfits n that George Chakra gown earlier. Her Elie Saab outing was prob the most forgettable one but even then I loved that jewel tone on her. So thx Ash!

  39. Nevracqua May 20, 2015 at 19:43 #

    I just died, went to hell, and then I saw these pictures. Feels like heaven.

    • MataHari May 21, 2015 at 04:56 #

      Lol…you posted the same on other blog as well!!!

  40. jason May 20, 2015 at 19:43 #

    She is Really Having A Blast At Cannes! Fashion is at par nd her beauty is simply outstanding!

  41. Robert May 20, 2015 at 19:42 #

    Stunning!! What smashing way to set the red carpet on fire!!! And thank goodness she avoided the “Angelina Jolie leg pose” situation.

  42. AKD May 20, 2015 at 19:40 #

    WOW! I’m blown away. What a beauty! She wears all her outfits, never the other way around. So strikingly stunning! Best look this year for her. QUEEN OF CANNES!

  43. Zing May 20, 2015 at 19:39 #

    Best look so far on the red carpet this year. Period!

    • Robert May 20, 2015 at 19:44 #

  44. Yeliz May 20, 2015 at 19:38 #

    THIS is how you do Ralph & Russo.

    As far as I’m concerned, her best look at this year’s festival.

  46. olala May 20, 2015 at 19:36 #

    And there was a Georges Chakra earlier today which was also breathtaking.

    I must have deserved some great Karma for I get to see these pictures of the Goddess!
