Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is celebrating her fifteenth year dazzling the Cannes Film Festival and we still can’t get enough of her. Here, we bring to you a few pictures of her preparing for her much-talked-about appearances that have sent everyone into a tizzy.

Through this one-and-a-half decade, we have seen her charm, bewilder and shock us with her fashion choices. But whatever be her look, she has always been a darling of the shutterbugs and no stranger to making headlines.

This year, the 42-year-old actor is promoting cosmetic giant L’Oreal and her upcoming film Sarbjit at the French Riviera. Predictably, her edgy red carpet appearances, most notably her purple lips, have received a divisive reaction on social media.

At her most memorable Cannes appearances this year, we saw her in a close-fitted Ali Younes beaded cape couture gown with turquoise eye shadow and middle-part waves, a red ruffled gown from New York-based designer Naeem Khan, a blush pink gown from Elie Saab’s Fall 2014 couture collection, and a bardot Rami Kadi dress adorned with delicate applique work and (the now infamous) purple lips.

As the actor juggles compliments, trolls and raised eyebrows, we give you a sneak peek into what it takes for one of the most beautiful women in the world to stun the fashion police and aficionados alike.
