Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made an appearance at Cannes Film Festival as she walked the red carpet for the premiere of Francis Ford Coppola’s film ‘Megalopolis’ on Thursday.

The star was dressed in a custom couture gown by Indian designer Falguni Shane Peacock with stark gold accents.

The designers Falguni and Shane Peacock chose to honour the actor with the choice of gold that for them “embodied a certain timelessness” in the actor’s life and career, according to Vogue India.

The former Miss World is not stranger to Cannes and has been attending for over 20 years since her debut in 2002 for her film ‘Devdas’.

She has represented a number of Indian designers on the red carpet throughout the years, including Sabyasachi and the duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla.

She was also the first Bollywood actress to be a jury member at the festival in 2003 – the same year that she became a global brand ambassador for L’Oreal.
