When observing last night’s red carpets, the phrase “dressing for the occasion” comes to mind. At the United Nations‘ Every Woman Every Child dinner, stars like Christy Turlington-Burns, Lily Cole, and Debra Messing wore modest and subdued ensembles. But over in Sydney, Australia at Cosmopolitan‘s Fun Fearless Female Awards, the ladies either went with short and tight, or long and sheer.
Another day, another steady stream of celebs walking the red carpet in Cannes. Last night Diane Kruger, Tilda Swinton, Aishwarya Rai, and Mia Wasikowska stepped out in show-stopping looks by some of fashion’s biggest names. We’ll show our hand and dub Tilda’s Haider Ackermann ensemble our favorite of the night — but which was yours?
Last week, we noticed Bollywood star and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai was looking a little lighter than usual on the cover of ELLE India’s 14th Anniversary Issue. The story has since been covered by StyleList, The Daily Mail, and MTV Desi — among a myriad of others. But while it’s not uncommon for blogs to speak up about post-production editing — and skin-lightening in particular — it’s not often one hears from the victim themselves.
Aishwarya Rai‘s name is almost always preceded or followed by the phrase “the most beautiful woman in the world.” The 37-year-old Indian actress (and former Miss World) is without a doubt one of the most stunning women on the planet. But her appearance on the cover of December’s Elle India has caused some raised eyebrows.
