Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her second appearance at Cannes in a gorgeous maroon Oscar de la Renta strapless gown for the unveiling of her film 'Jazbaa'. The actress made a striking statement: she stuck to her loose waves, and topped the entire look off with a matching lipstick and minimal bling.
The actress who had been in a rather mischievous mood during her first day at Cannes — she flouted the unofficial selfie ban, and even photobombed a pic — also released a short video just before she left for the event, talking about how excited she was to attend #HackTheCannes.

Her film 'Jazbaa' was showcased aboard the Lady Jersey Boat yesterday. It also marks Aishwarya's comeback to Bollywood after four years - her last film was 'Guzaarish' in 2010.

The first look of the film was tweeted out by film director Sanjay Gupta yesterday, just before the launch.

So far the Indian fashion scene at Cannes has been less than encouraging. Sonam Kapoor's yellow Elie Saab gown was compared to a lot of things on Monday.
Ash seems to also have played it safe this year.
Here are more pictures of Aishwarya at the event:
