Gracing the red carpet in a flower-filled Rami Kadi off-shoulder dress, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan pushed the fashion boundaries at the 69th Cannes Film Festival at the premiere of her much-awaited film Sarbjit.
Matching her beautiful gown, the former beauty queen gave a dramatic twist to her look with a lavender-purple lip colour, Gothic eyes and a high ponytail.
All seemed to be alright until Twitterati started trolling the actress’ purple pout, which was no wonder as it was a little out-of-the-line.
While some had few good words to say, most could not help making fun of it.
From Asian paints to crayons and grape-flavoured ice cream to Joey Tribbiani&’s Ichiban lipstick from the TV series Friends, haters posted all kinds of jokes and made fun of the purple shade on her lips.
One user pulled the plug with a sarcastic question aimed at Ash, asking her if she kissed a smurf before turning up for the event!
Here are some of the most hilarious tweets that took the Twitter world by storm:
@AksharPathak: "Aishwarya Rai: "Can you play that Kishore Kumar song?" "Which one?" "Purple dil ke paas tum rehti ho""
@ClassicallyWild: "Did Aishwarya kiss a smurf this time before she walked the red carpet at Cannes?"
@HeyShona: "My first reaction on Aishwarya’s lips was like.. omg!! why did she used her daughter’s crayons on her lips?"
@Naa_Cheese: "Ichiban lipstick is finally catching up."
@sandesh_samant: "When Asian Paints sponsors your lipstick…"
@AksharPathak: "Aishwarya Rai: "I’m wearing purple lipstick for Cannes this year" Abhishek Bachchan: "Good, it’ll go well with my purples-less existence.""
@LootPadiHai "Lakme: Mam this shade is not selling in the market. Pls do something Aishwarya: …"
@sinpulsive "Urban rich: Aishwarya’s lips look like she had black current ice cream, Urban poor: Aishwarya’s lips look like she had kala khatta gola."
@MrsBale113: Who ever has done Aishwarya’s makeup should be jailed. Dafuq is that????
@NameFieldmt: When you suck on a grape flavoured kuchhi ice and forget to wash your mouth ( Why why why Aish? Why?)
While most laughed at her look, some praised it too!
Here is what they had to say:
@ruchikokcha: Women laughing at the expense of Aishwarya’s lip colour can’t think of pulling it off even in their dreams. She on the other hand looked hot
@GappistanRadio: We are going to wake up to Aishwarya’s Bluish Purple lips on the front pages, aren’t we.
Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor cast a spell on the red carpet in her elegant all-white floor-sweeping gown by Ralph and Russo.
But, Twitterati couldn’t stop with their rants at her too.
Here is what some of them said:
@IyerAvin: Sonam Kapoor spotted wearing a Rumali Roti at Cannes
@Uttara28 : So this Cannes is pretty much animal friendly. First Aishwarya turns up looking like a bunch of fireflies and then Sonam, like a bird
