Valentino power suit: With hot pink the colour of the season on red carpets that stretch from the Oscars to Cannes, the colour or the fact that it’s adorning an oversized power suit simply can’t go wrong. For her first appearance at Cannes, which wasn’t a red carpet affair, Rai Bachchan had her make-up on point as she struck a pose in this Valentino number, paired with matching platform heels and poker-straight hair.

Razzle dazzle affair: The ‘Guru’ star let her hair down and swapped the gown for a pink glittering affair that hugged her curves, pairing it with an oversized balloon jacket for a private party hosted by the brand she represents. Joining Rai Bachchan at the party at La Petite Maison, Cannes, was a dapper Abhishek Bachchan in a tux and their daughter Aaradhya Bachchan, dressed in a pretty red dress.

The aww moment of the night came when Longoria made it a point to hug Aaradhya and spend some quality time with her friend’s kids. Just for that, Longoria earns brownie points with us.
