The 'Devdas' star, who is accompanied by her two-year-old daughter Aaradhya and mother Brinda Rai at the 67th Cannes Film Festival, missed her date on the red carpet last week due to the Air Traffic Control strike in France.
Aishwarya has been a regular at Cannes thanks to her stint as the L'Oreal Paris brand ambassador and her 13th appearance at the red carpet saw her joining beauties Amber Heard, Alessandra Ambrosio and Selita Ebanks.
