Move over, Priyanka Chopra. Aishwarya Rai is here to steal your thunder with an exquisite photo shoot for a magazine styled by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, where she looks more ethereal than ever.

The Fifth Anniversary India Special Edition of Condé Nast Traveller Magazine is pretty exceptional. Featuring the likes of Fatima Bhutto, Homi Adajania and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, it is quite a star studded spread.

Gracing the cover of the magazine with her ethereal presence, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks stunning in her vintage avatar.


Reminiscent of the colonial era, this former beauty queen is seen adorned in a soft floral printed Sabyasachi sari, styled perfectly with a vintage hairdo and pearls. And what better way to accessorize the regal look, than striking a pose with a black cat.


We can’t thank photographer Prasad Naik enough for these breathtaking images, bringing out Aish’s timeless beauty. Her hair was styled by Bianca Hartkopf and her flawless makeup is courtesy Mickey Contractor.

Set in the midst of a railway station from the past, trust Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who styled the shoot, to effortlessly bring out the essence of first class luxury and elegance.

While the magazine hits the stands later this week, let yourself be mesmerized by this behind-the-scenes video of the shoot:
