Aishwarya Rai, touted to be the most beautiful woman in the world is also the most criticized for her styling at Cannes Film Festival 2016.
After her first two days in champagne gold and pastel pinks, she decided to wear PURPLE LIPSTICK. MATTE PURPLE LIPSTICK. And some dress I didn’t look at.
After the MET Gala that had a futuristic/let’s all become robots theme, comes Aishwarya Rai’s purple lipstick.
To be honest, the first I saw this picture, I thought someone has used a makeup app (or a new Snapchat filter I don’t know about) but when my Twitter feed kept piling up, I thought it’s obviously more than a filter. It is a reality!
Reality that has gotten Miss Aishwarya Rai a few million tweets as her team must be pursing her lips and thinking most of us don’t have a ‘vision’. More like an X-ray, you mean?
Now I don’t approve of trolls but to be honest, in fact, I respect her for putting India on the map. But I gotta say, a lot of us came up with really witty comments making this Monday’s most trending topics. Here are my favourites–and they all had a point.

Aishwarya Rai: “I’m wearing purple lipstick for Cannes this year”
Abhishek Bachchan: “Good, it’ll go well with my purples-less existence.”

My response? I don’t wanna be meaning or anything. But the second time, I saw this picture, I thought someone dared her to do it. And she went for it. Like Chandler.
