Happy birthday, Aishwarya!
Beauty and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan go hand in hand. Even before she won Miss World and dazzled the likes of Julia Roberts, her face was ready to launch a thousand ships.
It's amazing how the star, all of 44 today, continues to look just as va va voom as she did when she entered Bollywood.
Here are 10 ways in which you can get inspired by Ash's style.
1. Say yes to fiery red lipstick
In make-up whiz Mickey Contractor's words, Aishwarya really rocks a red mouth.
It's one of her go-to hues for an instantly glam avatar. One look at the diva and it's easy to see why.
2. Pout red. Wear red.
The lady sure knows how to make the red carpet eat its heart out.
3. Wear your waves
Ash makes heads turn every time she sways those gloriously soft, curled tresses.
4. Or wear it straight
There's no dearth of admirers of her slick, straight mane either.
5. Flower power!
And when she does tie those lovely locks into a neat bun, a string of mogra is an absolute must.
6. Kohl-line your eyes
If looks can kill, the Kajra re girl is guilty as charged.
7. Live the colours
If you thought Ash is only about classics, think again. From purple lips to blue eyeliners, the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star loves going bold with her make-up.
8. Romance the anarkali
Casual or dressy, Aishwarya's fondness for flowy, dreamy anarkalis designed by her pals Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi or Abu-Jani is hard to miss.
9. Have a fairy tale of your own
As is her weakness for fairy tale gowns; is it daughter Aaradhya's influence?
10. Get fit!
Yoga, exercise and healthy diet -- the secret of Ash's eternal beauty lies in staying fit, feeling fabulous.
