New Delhi: Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan led the celebrity roll call of A-List stars as she graced the red carpet at the annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala held at the famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cannes on May 21.

The other high profile guests at the star-studded event included supermodels Irina Shayk, Toni Garrn, Doutzen Kroes and Laura Stone, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, Spanish actor Antonio Banderas, British actress Sienna Miller and French star Marion Cotillard among others.

Fetching in a mauve Elie Saab gown, Ash completed her look with diamond jewellery and her hair styled in soft waves.

Conspicuous by his absence was her husband, actor Abhishek Bachchan, who usually escorts her to the event each year. He had tweeted earlier

Aishwarya has been at Cannes for several days for her promotional duties as a L'Oreal Paris ambassador. This is her 14th year at Cannes.

The actress who is a big draw at the festival, picked a white Ralph & Russo dress for her previous red carpet look on Wednesday. Her first, on May 17, was in a teal gown, again by Elie Saab and turned the fashion police upon her. She redeemed herself somewhat with a claret Oscar de la Renta gown at the launch of her comeback film Jazbaa on May 19.
