Ash all set to go to Cannes, again

Aishwarya Rai will soon be headed to France for the 65th Cannes Film Festival, from May 16 to 27.This year will mark Ash’s 11th consecutive appearance at the festival.

As every year, she will attend the gala as the brand ambassador of an international cosmetic line sh 

Incidentally, Ash will be representing the cosmetic brand along with two other Indian faces, Freida Pinto and Sonam Kapoor. This will be Freida’s second appearance at Cannes. However, Freida will attend the festival alone because boyfriend- actor Dev Patel is busy promoting his new film, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel .

Although Ash hasn’t zeroed in on what she will wear on the Cannes red carpet, sources said she might choose an ethnic outfit by Indian designer.

Her recent appearance at the party thrown by Mukesh and Nita Ambani at Antilla brought her under the scanner. Several fashionistas and her detractors lambasted her for making a public appearance despite her increased weight and bloated face that she acquired post pregnancy.

With less than a week to go for Cannes, Ash will obviously have no time to get in shape for the film festival. She will have no option but to flaunt XLsize designer wear on the red carpet. “ She is enjoying motherhood and is not worried about how she looks,” her spokesperson said. “ Aishwarya will take her daughter along because she cannot stay away from the newborn,” confirmed the actress’s spokesperson.

Aishwarya wooed the fashion police with her looks last time she walked the red carpet.
She looked angelic in this outfit last year.

Aishwarya wore a short dress during the photocall of 'Heroine' at Cannes. Later, after her pregnancy came to light, she walked out of the flick.

'I didn't realise I was so close to completing a decade till someone pointed out to me last year, that I'd been coming to the fest for nine years, Ash said before flying to Cannes in 2011.
