Clad in a powder-blue brocade ball gown designed by Michael Cinco, the 43-year-old actress looked every inch a fairy-tale princess.

Aishwarya paired her heavenly look with mauve-hued lips and kept the rest of her make-up and accessories minimal.

While posing on the red carpet, the Indian beauty gave the best hair flip and even greeted the shutterbugs with a traditional Namaste pose.

Aishwarya made her debut at the film festival in 2002 to present her film Devdas. Since then, she has become a regular at the gala as the face of the cosmetic brand L'Oreal Paris.

The actress will attend the screening of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed movie yet again at an outdoor cinema event during the festival.

Earlier in the day, she looked ethereal in a sheer green tiered ensemble by Yanina Couture and was even spotted posing with model Eva Longoria in an off-white floral gown.

Deepika Padukone already walked the red carpet on May 18 in a bottle green Brandon Maxwell gown with a sweeping train, while another Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is yet to attend the event on May 21 and 22.

The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 17 to 28.
