11 times when Aishwarya was a STUNNER in BLACK

Don't judge her yet, black really is her colour!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is known to stumble every once in a while in the fashion department.

She made a little more than a misstep when she turned up for a Longines event in Chantilly, France, in a black outfit gone totally wrong.

But before you judge her, we'd like it to be known that Ash has nailed black outfits with admirable flair in the past.

That time when she almost dethroned fashion wiz Sonam Kapoor with this edgy Sabyasachi salwar kameez and high heels for her appearance at Femina awards.

Another time when she was a showstealer in this sheer and embroidery match made in fashion heaven as she walked the Cannes red carpet in Gucci.

Plump lips, minimal makeup, big hair and a gorgeous multi-strand Kundan necklace were opulent in essence but made a strong case for elegance, along with another Sabya salwar kameez, on Ash.

Then there was another Sabya sighting at Cannes when Ash chose to wear a black and gold sari to the screening of Bombay Talkies and instantly transformed into something an Indian Barbie doll with a serious fondness for saris would look like.

How about that year in the French Riviera when her piercing gaze sent us all into a collective frenzy as she walked the Cannes red carpet in a black Armani Prive beauty.

She had our attention in this understated yet unmistakably sexy Gauri and Nainika number for a day event in Mumbai.

Remember this memorable cover girl moment from the Indian edition of Vogue magazine?

 Those feathered shoulder pads are a dramatic sartorial detail and Ash pulls it off!

This carefully-crafted classic look for a star-studded event on home ground in a regal Toni Maticevski strapless number was stuff red carpet legends are made of, no?

Another Gucci dress that Ash wore to a photocall in Cannes back in 2010 was immensely elevated by big wavy hair and t-strap stilettoes.

And oh, when she smiled that dazzling smile at the 2006 edition of the Cannes film festival in this ruffled black gown that had our thumping approval.

Her turn at the Pink Panther screening in the French Riviera was pretty much bang on, as she wore an Alberta Feretti gown with a classic diamond necklace.
