Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s purple lips a fashion fail at Cannes Festival


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s lavender-blue lipstick during “Sarbjit” screening at Cannes film festival was much of a fashion fail for the actress.

The 42-year old Indian beauty wore flower-strewn Rami Kadi off-shoulder dress with lips shaded purple. Gothic eyes and high ponytail completed her look.

But it seems like Twitter users didn’t like the Aish’s look.

An user twitted, “When Asian paints sponsors your lipstick…”

Relating it with urban poor and urban rich conundrum, another Twitter user posted “Urban rich: Aishwarya’s lips look like she had black current ice cream. Urban poor: Aishwarya’s lips look like she had kala khatta gola.”


While Aish said in an interview, “I am an actor by my career choice. I enjoy fashion and I treat it like art and I have a life, a family. So, I am not focusing on all of this. So it (look) doesn’t stress me out… It doesn’t make me nervous… I am a professional.”
