Aishwarya may have left the building, but Sonam Kapoor landed soon enough in Cannes to fill her shoes.

The actress who, like Ash, endorses cosmetic giant L'Oreal, walked the red carpet for the ongoing Cannes Film Festival for the first time when she attended the premiere of The Artist at the Palais des Festivals.

The fashionista that she's known as back home, Sonam floored everybody with her outfit and appearance.

The tall actress chose a beautiful white Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown from the designer's 2009 Spring Couture collection and was an instant hit with the papparazzi.

Sonam paired her fairytale-like dress with Chopard earrings, Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and an Amrapali ring.

The geometrical patterned white dress has a mesh overlay and the black print is beautiful but it could have done without the train.

Sonam pulls off the dress though.

Sonam knows how to strike all the right poses for the cameras.

The young actress pulled out all stops with her smile and the statement ring that she had on.

She also opted for black nails to go with her white dress.

The dress may have been flowy, but it shows off Sonam's figure just fine. Here's a closer look.

Sonam attended the Peter Lindbergh Exhibition in an edgy Masaba Gupta sari. While the sari did wonders for Sonam, we wish she hadn't gone with a full-sleeved blouse.

But that was only until we saw the beautiful plunging back of it.

While Sonam works the sari, we'd like to point out that the make-up's making her look like she just came back from a Carribean holiday.

Go easy on the bronze next time.

Now this is one helluva international look! Sonam tweeted this picture from a photoshoot.

The actress sizzled in a gorgeous Vivienne Westwood dress and red lips.
