2002

Aishwarya made her Cannes debut wearing a blinged out sari . She paired it with heavy gold jewellery. It looked more ‘shaadi’ than red carpet.

2003

The actor chose a neon green sari with an embellished spaghetti blouse. Her top bun made the look even worse. She drew criticism for her pick.

2004

Aishwarya’s white cut-out gown failed to make an impression on the red carpet. She ruined the gown further by teaming it with a sheer dupatta.

2005

Aishwarya wore a flirty, floral gown from Georgio Armani. She looked effortlessly elegant. This was a successful attempt to up her fashion game.

2006

Aishwarya wore a black Roberto Cavalli number with ruffles. Going by what she had been wearing to Cannes earlier, this look was way more glamorous and sexy.

2007

Aishwarya looked stunning in this strapless white gown with a dramatic trail. This Giorgio Armani number looked chic with her diamond neckpiece.

2008

This embellished gown was one of her worst looks. Unflattering and confusing, it did nothing for the gorgeous actor. The hair and makeup, too, wasn’t great.

2009

She looked nice in this fairytale-perfect white gown from Roberto Cavalli. Though it wasn’t an instant red carpet hit, it looked pretty.

2010

She picked a shimmery black Armani Prive gown. The figure-flattering gown looked good on her. She added a pop of colour with bright red lipstick.

2011

This one-shouldered peplum gown from Elie Saab was a striking pick. Though peplum is passé now, it was quite a rage those days.

2012

She was criticised for weight gain after pregnancy. She shut down her critics in this gorgeous Elie Saab gown that flattered her frame.

2013

She wore a satin teal gown which she spiced up with bright fuchsia lips. We liked her elegant top knot.

2014

This golden Roberto Cavalli gown is Aishwarya’s most impressive Cannes look till date. It’s mermaid silhouette looked fab on her and paps couldn’t stop clicking her.

2015

Aishwarya wore this beautiful Ralph and Russo gown and made a dramatic entry on the red carpet. She outshined others with her edgy and glamorous pick.

2016

Aishwarya turned heads in this beautiful Elie Saab gown last year. She styled it perfectly. Her cascading curls and bold oxblood lips made her a headturner.
