Mumbai, May 4 (): Bollywood divas Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor and Freida Pinto will walk on the red carpet at the 66th Cannes Film Festival, where India is the guest country this year.
All the three Bollywood actresses are the brand ambassadors of L’Oreal Paris, one of the world’ largest cosmetics and beauty company. The trio will walk as brand ambassadors of this company, which completes 16 years as the official make-up artist for the Cannes film fest.
As Indian cinema is celebrating its 100 years this year, L’Oreal Paris will commemorate the occasion with L’Or Sunset, a new make-up line.
Manashi Guha, marketing manager of L’Oreal Paris said in a statement that as the festival celebrates 100 years of Indian cinema this year, L’Oreal Paris would bring alive iconic make-up trends inspired by Bollywood that would be sported by both our Indian and international brand ambassadors.
This red carpet walk will be the 12th consecutive appearance for Aishwarya Rai. She will be on the red carpet for L’Oreal Paris on May 20 and she will also be the guest of honour at a special evening celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema at Cannes on May 19. She feels very proud for appearing twice at the Cannes Film Festival.
