LOOK: Aishwarya Rai chooses Filipino designer Michael Cinco again for Cannes
Bollywood star and beauty queen Aishwarya Rai patronized Dubai-based Filipino designer Michael Cinco once again for the Cannes red carpet.
Cinco, known for unapologetically extravagant designs, decked Rai in a vibrant, body-hugging butterfly gown embellished with Swarovski crystals and French paillettes. The designer seems to have taken inspiration from a butterfly after its transformation.
The Impalpable Dream of The Butterfly…And so the butterfly emerges from its chrysalis and metamorphose into this cape made in the lightest of fine mesh. Its color starkly evocative in all shades of violet, red and blue threadworks, fully embellished in Swarovski crystals and French pailettes. The 10-foot long train took 3,000 of man-hours to finish and intricately hand crafted to make it this exquisitely flighty and timeless.. @sayed5inco @stylepr @aasthasharma @asiancouturefederation @couturissimo @ffwddxb @d3dubai @lovinghautecouture @thecatwalkitalia @fashion_celebs_critics_ @couturenotebook #couture #CannesFilmFestival2018 #AishwaryaRai #redcarpet #Ultraviolet #butterfly #ffwddxb #Bollywood #India #Dubai #MyDubai #MadeinDubai #MichaelCincoADVERTISEMENT
The vivid shades of red, violet and blue in an ornate pattern ensured that Rai was a scene-stealer at the star-studded event.
The glamorous actress held her own with the gown’s three-meter train, which Cinco revealed took 10,000 hours to make.
Another international actress to don a Cinco creation was Thai actress Praya Lundberg, who stunned in a shimmering black ball gown.
Last year, Rai wowed in Cannes when she looked like fairytale royalty in a dusty-blue Cinco ball gown. /ra
