In an alternate reality, where the pandemic of COVID-19 wasn’t obstructing our fashion plans, we would have witnessed the sartorial extravaganza in the form of 73rd Festival De Cannes which was all set to happen between May 12 to May 23, 2020. Ball gowns, modish ensembles, and all things OTT, we miss everything about this dress-up soiree!

While we can’t wait for this to get over and look forward to the sartorial dose that awaits us, here’s a little look back at last year’s Cannes journey to satiate our inner fashionista.

Saving the best for the last, we have Aishwarya Rai Bachchan closing this throwback segment. This OG Cannes Queen has a reputation of superseding her red carpet looks with each passing year and last year was no different either. With high stakes, big guns and nothing but vogue, this Indian beauty dominated the French Riviera, one look at a time!

While we missed this stunner casting her spell at the gala this year, here’s a look back at her last year’s Cannes journey to make up your mundane day!

PRESS, PARTIES AND PROMOTIONS

For her off the red-carpet looks, Aishwarya opted for experimental looks in popping hues, overcoats, denim and bold red lips.

Her metallic mermaid look Jean Louis Sabaji couture was pure perfection. This one-sleeved, six-layered metallic gown had a long train. Her dramatic makeup added just the right glamour element to her looks.

For her second red carpet appearance, Rai opted for an extravagant gown from Ashi Studio. Voluminous feathers, ruffles surely added some drama to the red carpet.

Now that’s some decadence and drama indeed!
