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 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
