Here's how Aishwarya's look was teased ahead of her final red carpet appearance. Can you spot little Aaradhya too?

The former beauty queen made her first official appearance in Cannes earlier in the day - she stepped out in a sequinned off-shoulder dress from the studios of celebrated designer Manish Arora. The 44-year-old actress is representing cosmetics giant L'Oreal at the Cannes Film Festival.

Aishwarya checked into the French Riviera on Friday and accompanying her was her six-year-old daughter Aaradhya Rai Bachchan. Aaradhya has been accompanying her mother to the French Riviera since she was a baby. The duo received a warm welcome upon their arrival at Hotel Martinez on Boulevard de la Croisette.
