Aishwarya, There’s a Bee Hive on Your Head
Every summer, as the Cannes film festival approaches, we feel trepidation. As one of the more consistent Cannes attendants, we totally get that this is your space. Your red carpet. Your time to shine. And who is a young upstart to tell you otherwise (nice try, Sonam). You’ve had some high moments (like in 2006, when newly svelte, you rocked the midnight blue Armani gown); but mostly a series of lows (remember 2005, ’07, ’08 and ’09?). So when you showed up this week, looking like a cast-off from a production of Cinderalla, our hearts sank. The ice-blue, frothy lace layers? Yeah, not so much. Layers usually translate into extra fabric which translate into extra pounds. Add that to the 15 the cameras add, and you see what we’re getting at. And the bee hive hair? It needs a red carpet of its own.
Dare we say it, but even Mallika Sherawat, looking almost demure in a simple white gown and standing next to new “friend” Salma Hayek, out-shone you. Now we hear Deepika Padukone is on her way to Cannes, and it might be too late to put a kibosh on the plan. So yeah, good luck with that.
P.S. Harry Potter called, he thinks Hedwig might be living in your hair.
