Despite criticism in her native India for failing to lose weight after giving birth in November 2011, Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai walked the red carpet at Cannes on Friday (May 25) in a stunning Elie Saab gown at the premiere of “Cosmopolis.”
The dress, from Saab’s Fall 2011 Couture collection, is deep blue and embroidered with hundreds of sequins. A belt and sheer long sleeves complete the look — which Rai paired with a box clutch and blue fingernails.
Despite the outcry from some of her “fans,” Rai is in no hurry to lose the post-baby pounds. Instead, she says, she wants to “enjoy motherhood.”
“Whenever there is the wave of opinions, and I’ve always said this, it’s the truth — I’m sure you will endorse it since you know the facts as well — the haters are a drop in the ocean,” Rai said in a Thursday interview. “There’s that much more love, you know? So any kind of negativity in any case… it just doesn’t stick, it just drops off, it doesn’t matter at all.”
