Purple lipstick on one of the world’s most scrutinized red carpet – in a dramatic and unexpected departure from her usually safe looks, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attended the screening of her film Sarbjit at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday wearing a lavender-blue lip with her flower-strewn Rami Kadi dress.
The 42-year-old easily outshone Team Sarbjit, including co-star Richa Chadha wearing a Sabyasachi sari – Ash and her colour-blocked lips were pretty much the only thing anyone was looking at.
This breaking of her own personal style rules has sharply divided opinion among the self-appointed pundits of Twitter. The jury is currently out on whether Ash’s experimental look was a win or a fail.
