Cannes Film Festival has become a regular affair for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The Bollywood diva is spotted raising the glam quotient at the prestigious film festival every year. And this year was no different.

For her first appearance at the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival, Aishwarya wore a spectacular butterfly-pattern inspired gown by Dubai-based designer Michael Cinco and turned quite a few heads when she walked the red carpet.

The major highlight of her look was undoubtedly her outfit which featured an ornately embroidered and embellished 3-meter train that glided behind her as she walked at the French Riveria.

During an interview, when Cinco was asked to reveal the details about his masterpiece that he created for the actress, he said,”The gown was created to reflect the impalpable dream of a butterfly metamorphosis.” He further unveiled that the gown, which consists of ultra-violet, midnight blue, and red thread works, is covered in Swarovski crystals and French palettes.

Other than that, the ace designer even took it to his social media to share the details of the gown. And what surprised us the most was the fact that it took as many as 3000 hours to create the masterpiece that Aishwarya wore.

Taking it to his Instagram account, he wrote, This painstakingly breathtaking ULTRA VIOLET work of art is inspired by a butterfly…The 20-foot long fully embroidered cape with intricate full silk threadworks and Swarovski crystals all made by skilled hands took 3,000 hours to finish for SWAROVSKI Exhibition…”

The Impalpable Dream of The Butterfly…And so the butterfly emerges from its chrysalis and metamorphose into this cape made in the lightest of fine mesh. Its color starkly evocative in all shades of violet, red and blue threadworks, fully embellished in Swarovski crystals and French pailettes. The 10-foot long train took 3,000 of man-hours to finish and intricately hand crafted to make it this exquisitely flighty and timeless.. @sayed5inco @stylepr @aasthasharma @asiancouturefederation @couturissimo @lovinghautecouture @thecatwalkitalia @fashion_celebs_critics_ @couturenotebook #couture #CannesFilmFestival2018 #AishwaryaRai #redcarpet #Ultraviolet #butterfly #Bollywood #India #Dubai #MyDubai #MadeinDubai #MichaelCinco

For the uninitiated ones, this is the second time that Aishwarya is wearing Michael’s creation at the Cannes Film Festival. Last year too, the former Miss World dazzled at the red carpet in a picturesque Cinderella gown by him which took a team of five assistants to help her up the stairs.

The fame designer Michael Cinco originally hails from the Philippines and has dressed Hollywood-biggies like Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez among others.

Coming back to Aishwarya, this was her 17th time at the prestigious film festival. The actress made her first appearance long back in 2002.
