Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a sheer multi-layered gown at Cannes 2017

A courtyard (red carpet really) full of photographers awaited the princess and then she gracefully acknowledged them as she made her way to the screening of the day at Palais des Festivals.

Aishwarya looked ethereal in a sheer green tiered ensemble by Yanina Couture. For those who dont know, she made her debut at the global film festival in 2002 for the movie Devdas. Aishwarya will be attending the 70th edition of the film festival on May 19 and 20.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gears up for her red carpet appearance at Cannes 2017.

Aishwarya made her debut at the film carnival in 2002 to present her film "Devdas". "The kind of reception we got for the movie was truly overwhelming and I will cherish it all my life", Aishwarya added.

Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone already graced the 70th global film festival, Cannes, France on Wednesday. Post the press interaction, she did a stunning photoshoot in a floral embroidered beige golden Mark Bumgarner gown, paired with yellow-golden heel. She walked before the screening of French director Arnaud Desplechin's "Les Fantomes d'Ismael". Her best appearance so far has been her golden mermaid look in Roberto Cavalli golden off shoulder evening gown. The maxi dress has a plunging neckline, the attire cinches at the waist, giving her a lovely silhouette. She has been a regular at the film festival for several years.

After Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, another Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai Bachchan charmed the Cannes Film Festival 2017 with her twin looks on the first day of her visit, on Friday.
