Troll her all you want, but Aishwarya Rai still thinks her Cannes 2024 day 1 outfit was ‘magical’. She was dressed by Falguni and Shane Peacock.

Aishwarya Rai is still the queen of Cannes Film Festival but her outfits from this year did not receive unanimous love from fans. Actually, most found the look disappointing, too flamboyant, that did not do justice to her beauty. She was trending on social media for two days with negative reviews of her looks flooding Twitter and Instagram. However, she only has love for her dress.

Why was she trolled?

Aishwarya attended the premiere of Francis Ford Coppola's Megalopolis on Thursday in a black and gold Falguni and Shane Peacock gown. The gown was made in stiff fabric with puffy white sleeves and a long cape with 'velcro-ed' golden flowers all over. Golden foil details were all over the bodice, too. Fans found the outfit too bulky, too dramatic, and just plain disappointing. Aishwarya still thinks it was ‘magical’.

Her response

In a new interview with Vogue, Aishwarya talked about her day one look: “The look last evening at the red carpet was designed by my dearest friends Shane and Falguni Peacock. They call it gilded glow but to me it was just magical.” Aishwarya also talked about her makeup look for the evening and how all women are iconic in the interview. Watch it here:

People online had some suggestions for Aishwarya. One person wrote, “You should give a chance to other stylists, other than your friends. They are damaging your image at Cannes.” “Girl, they are NOT your friends dressing you in that,” commented another person.
