Aishwarya Rai at Cannes Film Festival 2010 Opening Ceremony, Day 1 Red Carpet (Photographs)

Several celebrities attended the Red Carpet ceremony to mark the opening of the 63rd Cannes Film Festival this evening. They included Aishwarya Rai, who has been a permanent Cannes attendee for many years. Aishwarya kept it classic wearing Elie Saab for the 'Robin Hood' screening on Day 1 of the 63rd Cannes Film Festival. The L'Oreal brand ambassador (the brand are the official makeup artistes at the festival) was dressed in a stunning lavender train Elie Saab gown. She chose an up-do to show off her earrings in matching lavender. Some of the others who were part of the opening night celebration were the lead stars of the inaugural film Robin Hood. Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchet.

The 36-year-old former beauty queen seems to have a weakness for ruffles that end in a train. Last year too she chose to make a dramatic entry at the opening day of the festival with a strapless white Roberto Cavalli train gown

Ash was not alone. And no, it wasn't her husband Abhishek Bachchan either who accompanied her on the red carpet. Rather it was fellow brand ambassador and the star of Desperate Housewives, Eva Longoria.

Aishwarya and Eva Longoria Parker both seem to like long trains on their gowns!

The two gorgeous ladies share a good laugh as they worked the red carpet.Not a difficult thing to do when one is a former beauty queen while the other is a soap star This time Ash decided to go with the embroidered tulle and mousseline gown.

Every year, Aishwarya Rai's choice of designer for the Cannes International Film Festival red carpet comes under the scanner. Some years her look's a hit and some years not so much. This year, 2010, Aishwarya got it more right than wrong.

She wore a violet blue fully embroidered tulle and mousseline gown from Elie Saab for the opening ceremony of the fest on May 12, and we have to say it suited her. She looked fresh, confident, and quite lovely.

We just wish she'd done something different with her hair. A bit too up there for our liking, though the long curls added a touch of playfulness to her otherwise sedate look. While the design of her dress was nicely fairy-princess, the colour didn't get it all the way there.

Ash had worn Elie Saab to Cannes in 2009 as well. That had been a one-shouldered silver-gray gown, and she'd had her hair pulled back.

Ash wasn't accompanied by hubby Abhishek today. He's away shooting in Istanbul but he got to know what she looked like at Cannes right away. AB Jr tweeted, "Thanks to all those who sent me photos of the wife at Cannes. Couldn't be with her today as i'm filming in Istanbul. but will join her there on the 17th to promote Raavan."

Salma Hayek, the sultry actress from Mexico who was part of the Festival jury along with India's Nandita Das in 2005, was also to be seen. Incidentally, Hollywood stars were conspicuously absent in a year that is gladly being seen by cinema lovers and critics as low on spice and sugar and high on art.
