Aishwarya Rai In Elie Saab Couture - 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Aishwarya Rai attended amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday (May 21) in Cap d’Antibes, France.

As you know, I wasn’t a huge fan of her first Elie Saab dress, so I was delighted with take 2.

This gorgeous creation, which hails from the Spring 2014 Couture collection, may now be considered safe by some following her bold choice from last night, but I have to say this is Aishwarya at her best.

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?

Aishwarya Rai In Oscar de la Renta – ‘Jazbaa’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Aishwarya Rai In Oscar de la Renta - 'Jazbaa' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Aishwarya Rai attended the ‘Jazbaa’ photocall during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

The goosebumps are back, so she picked a winner.

Before you say this is OTT for a photocall, remember that this is Cannes.

As you know I didn’t get that excited about her first look for this festival, however this bordeaux Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015 gown is the kind of drama I expect from Aishwarya.

While the real winner here is her unquestionable beauty, with the gown only serving to enhance it, I’m delighted to see her back on top form.

Slay mama, slay.

Aishwarya Rai In Elie Saab – ‘Carol’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai In Elie Saab - 'Carol' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai attended the premiere of ‘Carol’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 17) in Cannes, France.

The Indian beauty made her first appearance during the festival wearing Elie Saab, of course.

The green gown with its sheer panels and embellishments is nice enough, but it doesn’t sweep me off my feet nor does it engulf me with goosebumps; which are rare feelings not to have in the presence of Queen Rai.

Perhaps the issue is that I am comparing this look to her previous two seasons where she blew me away, this is more like a light breeze.

Giorgio Armani’s 40th Anniversary Celebration

Giorgio Armani's 40th Anniversary Celebration

A glorious guest list attended Giorgio Armani’s 40th Anniversary Silos Opening and Cocktail Reception on Thursday (April 30) in Milan, Italy. With Armani ensembles at every turn, sleekness and chicness were the order of the day.

Cate Blanchett: The queen again reigned supreme in this stunning Armani Privé Spring 2015 cream suit architecturally punctuated by a black obi-style sash. Radiantly luminous makeup and a softly swept-back ’do projected even more beauty on top of elegance here.

Chris Pine: I loved the sense of ease that characterized Chris’s polished Giorgio Armani gray suit with lavender shirt and dark tie. That he appears to be wearing his loafers sans socks only contributes to the effortlessly handsome look on this occasion.

Hilary Swank: Her sculptural, asymmetric Armani Privé Fall 2014 cocktail dress was a work of art with red floral embroidery and netted overlay for a ladylike yet bold statement.
