The Actors Who Made It to the Cannes This Year

This year too, like every year the Film Festival at Cannes was graced by the glorified and harmonious presence of many faces of Bollywood. Of these some were known, where as some were just recent visitors to the festival.

 1. Aishwarya Rai dazzling again







The grand event of Cannes Film Festival that started from 16th May, 2012 witnessed the gala appearance of the new mother and the former beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachhan. Aishwarya Rai Bachhan after giving birth to her baby was under severe criticism for her recently acquired post delivery fats. But she has been deliberately silent rather than voicing her part of the story on the issue. Her appearance at the 65th Cannes film festival held in 2012 was under high surveillance until she appeared against Aids gala at the Amfar Cinema. Her dress bore the signature of Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla, and she was sizzling as usual. And here she was slimmer and gorgeous in her chosen traditional outfit. Apart from attending the event, another noble cause of the actress' presence was to participate at the dinner arranged by AmfAR for raising funds for AIDS victims.

2. Arjun Rampal

The other star Arjun Rampal also attended the event with her wife and they both walked the red carpet and represented the brand of Chivas Regal. Arjun was in a bandhgala jacket accompanied with jodhpurs, a designed wear by Rohit Bal. Arjun's wife, Mehr was in a wonderful gown by the designer Tarun Tahilani. The duo was looking exceptionally stunning and warm in the aura of the grand event.

3. Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor, the young star of Bollywood also showed up this year as well. She is also a regular visitor to the festival. She appeared in a Dolce & Gabbana dress at the dinner of the closing ceremony of the event. She was looking glorious in her colourful dress which was a red gown, strapless and was with a full skirt. She walked the red carpet on the premiere of the movie Therese Desqueyroux in an Alexander McQueen; but the Dolce and Gabbana suited her looks much better. The perfect make up by L'Oreal completed her looks at the event. Sonam Kapoor was not at her very best looks this time, though she managed to be smart and elegant.

4. Freida Pinto















The actress Frieda Pinto also was present at the event and was the brand ambassador of the cosmetic brand L'Oreal Paris. This actress from the movie Trishna lit up the red carpet event of the movie Moonrise Kingdom by West Anderson. She wore a gown of Michael Angel with a peplum. The gown was light pink in colour and had a draped skirt. At the opening night dinner the actress presented herself in a Versace and wooed the crowd over there.

 5. Mallika Sherawat

Right after Frieda Pinto, the hot Mallika Sherawat caught everybody's eye. She wore a body hugging Victoria Beckham dress, a knee length one. But at the premiere of the film Madagascar 3, she looked entirely different in a dress that showed off her back. The high front and the extreme deep back of the dress were held up together by a thin belt at the waist. To present herself in this bold style, she featured the 70's make-up. Her eyeliner out winged, hairdo in bouffant style and her exclusive diamond earrings added to this look. Her gown was designed by the designer from Paris named Ali Madhavi. This was Mallika's 4th visit at the Cannes event.

Apart from this the other stars who were present at the Cannes Film Festival were Reema Sen, Kalki Koechlin and her husband, Anurag Kashyap- the director.
