Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dazzles in gold on Cannes red carpet

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan shone as she stepped on to the Cannes red carpet in a show-stopping gold gown.

The Indian actress and model commanded attention from the crowd as she turned up at the A Hidden Life premiere in the metallic dress.

The flattering frock left one arm and shoulder bare and featured an unusual, layered train.

Several stars of the modelling world also attended the screening at the French film festival.
