Aishwarya Rai this year at Cannes really pushed her fashion credentials to the limit as she sported a bold lilac lipstick. Like what? And despite opting for classic red carpet glamour with the rest of her attire, the 42-year-old's purple pout stole the show as it contrasted starkly to her pretty pastel-coloured dress and grabbed attention to her notoriously luscious lips. Well except for her weird lip colour, she wore an elegant gown, which swirled around her feet in a pool of luxurious silk. The floor-length gown was embellished with delicate applique flowers in shades of purple, orange and white and clung to Aishwarya's shapely figure in all the right places. While some have appreciated the actress for a taking a "bold" step and not playing it safe, most social media users have trolled her for the choice of lip color. This isn't surprising, even Sonam Kapoor faced heat for wearing an elaborated feathered gown to the fest last year. Her purple pout may have gotten some of the internet users busy, but there was much more at the prestigious festival. On day one, Aishwarya walked the red carpet in a richly embellished Ali Younes Couture gown, which was loved and appreciated by many. Husband Abhishek Bachchan was quite taken by her appearance. The Neerja actor who also attended Cannes this year says Aish took a bold risk because she wanted to be “talked about”. “The whole idea of fashion and make-up is for people to discuss it and I guess she wanted to be discussed. She achieved what she wanted to achieve with it, which I think is great,” said Sonam.
