Our very own Aishwarya Rai Bachchan finally made her first appearance at the Cannes Film Festival in a flowing, monochrome maxidress that was forgiving to her post baby curves. The designer she chose for her 2012 Cannes Film Fetival Red Carpet is a little known Australian designer Angelo Katsapis.

This is Ash’s 11th year at Cannes as a L’Oreal brand ambassador, and her first red carpet outing since the birth of daughter Aaradhya in November last year. Aishwarya’s Cannes wardrobe was kept a secret till now. Her outfits were said to include a cream chikankari sari and an anarkali style kurta, neither of which were in evidence on her day 1 out in Cannes.

Ash has been on the receiving side because of her failure to shed her post pregnancy weight. The Angelo Katsapis dress proved a perfect choice, as it covers up, rather than reveals, and flatters her figure. Good Job Ash !!
