Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her first red carpet appearance for the 76th Festival de Cannes in a show-stealing Sophie couture number. The Cannes veteran commenced her annual trip to the French Riviera on day 3, for the Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny premiere. However, this is not the first Cannes Indiana Jones premiere that Aishwarya has graced. The global star was also present for the 2008 Cannes screening of film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Aishwarya commenced this year's red carpet Cannes appearances with Sophie couture ensemble. Dressed in silver and black, Aishwarya's stellar silhouette featured a massive floor-length bow across her midriff around which wrapped around to form a loosely placed yet firmly structured oversized hood. The aluminum silver theme continued down the mermaid cut silhouette extending in to a slight yet stiff trail at the back. Aishwarya also sported her signature bright red lips to compliment the formal and cool tones of the ensemble.

2023 is not the first time Aishwarya has attended an Indiana Jones premiere at Cannes. The actress had graced the red carpet premiere for the 2008 premiere of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. 2008 being her seventh year at Cannes, Aishwarya was already well on her way to become Cannes royalty. For the premiere, Aishwarya sported an olive green evening silhouette with a thigh-high slit featuring a ruffled fan at the seam. The gown carried subtle floral motifs in white embroidery with popping purple details. Aishwarya kept her makeup dewy and her hair slick, sporting soft smoky eyes and a straight ponytail. \
