Aishwarya goes Indian, picks Abu-Sandeep for Cannes 2012

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is going to wear Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla at Cannes this year. There has been much media speculation about her choice of designer and there were rumours that designer Sabyasachi is going to style her for Cannes this time around. However the designer recently clarified that he will not be doing Aishwarya’s wardrobe for the red carpet.

This year Aishwarya Rai is going to wear only India outfits at Cannes. She is going to wear an off-white Abu-Sandeep saree with gold embroidery. She will also be seen in churidar kurtas which will also be of pastel colors. So no bright colors and no western gowns for Aish this year. The actress will be accompanied by her mom Vrinda Rai and daughter Aaradhya and will be walking the red carpet on 24th and 25th May.

Her ditching western outfits can very well have to do with the fact that she has gained a lot of weight after giving birth to her daughter in November last year. Her choice of designer for Cannes doesn’t surprise us because ever since she became pregnant, we have spotted her in Abu-Sandeep a number of times. Perhaps the long flowy kurtas are a good way to hide the baby fat!

We take a quick look at the number of times we have seen Aish in Abu-Sandeep outfits after she became pregnant.
