Looking like a princess in 21st century is not an easy task. Ask Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who turned up looking like Cinderella on the third day of the 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival in a a floor-sweeping powder blue ballroom gown.

The dress, made by Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer Michael Cinco, was so incredibly voluminous that it took the actor’s entire entourage to hoist up the skirt to let her walk, climb stairs or even get out of her van.

One of Aishwarya’s fanpages on Instagram posted a video of her struggling to step out of her van due to the thick fabric and the sheer volume of her gown. A team member first makes room for her feet to start the process of de-boarding the vehicle. She asks for a hand to pull her out the door as she finally lands on the ground, straightens out her dress and proceeds to smilingly sign some autographs.

She then made her way to the red carpet as the ambassador of global cosmetic brand L’Oreal Paris on Day 3 of the gala.
