Emerald-eyed Bollyood goddess Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and American beauty Reese Witherspoon show off their magnificent feminine curves on Cannes' closing weekend. New mum Aishwarya set the flashbulbs blazing when she proudly displayed her post-baby figure in an embellished blue gown from Elie Saab.
Meanwhile, blooming Reese was the epitome of pregnancy glamour. The blonde actress – who is expecting her third child – looked elegant in a cascading blue gown and dazzling accessories.
Aishwarya, 38, welcomed her daughter Aaradhya with husband Abhishek Bachchan in November. Her appearance in the French Riviera as one of the faces of L'Oreal has sparked debate about her new, fuller figure.
But the Bollywood icon insists she is comfortable in her own skin and embraces life in the limelight whatever people think. "It's really been almost a part of every day for so many years now that I have never let it define me - it's just a moment to enjoy," she said at the Cosmopolis premiere. And the actress spoke of her love for her daughter, saying: "Aaradhya is here and she is my angel, I mean, it's just absolutely blissful." Completing the glamorous line up of A-list ladies was Kristen Stewart, whose beau Robert Pattison stars in Cosmopolis. With her leading man busy signing autographs for thrilled fans, scarlet siren Kristen was escorted by Sienna Miller 's partner Tom Sturridge. While the movie stars wowed on the famous Cannes walkway, the festival's judges awarded French language film Amour the top prize. The emotional tale of a Parisian husband caring for his dying wife beat off stiff competition to snare the Palme d'Or. It is the second triumph for the film's Austrian director, Michael Haneke.
