Days after the 66th Cannes Film Festival commenced and several Indian actresses made their red carpet apearances, Cannes veteran and L'Oreal brand ambassador Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her much-awaited 2013 debut.
Attending the premiere of the Coen brothers' film Inside Llewyn Davis, the actress looked much slimmer than her last appearance in the French riviera.

Dressed in an ornately designed gown in grey and black by her trusted designer Elie Saab, the actress took in the latest film by Coen brothers Ethan and Joel -- regular favourites at the festival.
Keeping with the busy details on the gown, the actress went for minimal accessories and make up.
Ash, who's in Cannes with daughter Aaradhya, caught up with father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan as he headed home after his Cannes sojourn.
He tweeted, "A joy to meet 'the little one' and Aishwarya on way out from Cannes.. Now to London and back home... Life has become a travelogue !"
Ash, who's also served on the festival jury in 2003, has been attending the famed film festival for the last twelve years with several red carpet hits and misses to her credit.
The actress changed into a stunning Sabyasachi sari -- who appears to have become an unofficial ambassador of desi fashion at the festival this year -- for the screening of Bombay Talkies.

Dressed in a black and gold sari and a matching headband, the actress caught the eyes of bystanders and shutterbugs with her winning smile.
The couture lehenga sari may have been a bit heavy but was a far cry from last year's garish Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla creation that the actress made her first appearance in last year.
