Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: After a few early hiccups, Ash has reserved some of her best fashion choices for Cannes.

The one that tops our list is the Roberto Cavalli dress which she wore in 2009. According to reports the dress was worth a whopping Rs 5 million.

In 2009, she wore silver accessorized with husband Abhishek.

In 2010, she chose a pink Gucci one of a kind dress.

Also in 2010, Ash chose a lilac Elie Saab gown for the opening ceremony.

Sonam Kapoor: As befits Bollywood's leading style star, Sonam's Cannes wardrobe has been edgy and fashion-forward.

Among our favorites – a gold Roberto Cavalli floor-length dress she wore in 2012 and a navy blue back-slit Vivienne Westwood dress in 2011.

Her Cannes debut was spectacular in monochrome Jean Paul Gaultier. A red Dolce & Gabbana ballerina dress was a highlight of 2012.

Freida Pinto: The Slumdog Millionaire actress is internationally hailed for her style picks. Freida looked gorgeous in a lime green Atelier Versace dress at Cannes in 2012.

Then the same year she wore a Michael Angel gown with a multi-coloured bodice and thigh high split during the premiere of film Moonrise Kingdom.

She also wore a cropped top, matching skirt and denim sandals at the photocall of her movie, Desert Dancer in 2012.

Mallika Sherawat: The Bollywood siren has worn a series of looks at Cannes, ranging from her usual risqué choices to more covered-up picks. A white feathery dress in 2011 earned her a nod from fashion pundits.

An olive green Victoria Beckham dress and minimal make-up left her almost unrecognizable as the sultry Hisss star in 2012.

In 2012 again, Mallika struck the right chord with a feminine coral gown paired with a blingy Zagliani clutch.
