Typical Indian Look.

La Rai opted for a hair and makeup look at the Filmfare Awards that was a total departure from the makeup and hairstyles she sported at the Pink Panther 2 promotions. You could say she decreased the glam quotient slightly without sacrificing drama. Her makeup in Europe focused on a silvery smokey eye with winged liner and lashes out to there. In contrast, at the Filmfare Awards, La Rai opted to emphasize her peepers with desi style kajal-rimmed eyes and just a shimmer of shadow. To that, she added a touch of blush and coral lips. Her hair was also quite different from the teased, high volume 'dos she worked in Europe. Rather than sticking with her trademark soft waves and loose hair, La Rai went for a simple, no frills center part with hair slicked back into a low ambada. I love the effect of the plait wrapped around the ambada. To finish off her look, she added the tiny circular bindi as opposed to some kind of large, garish one. The entire look was sleek, sophisticated, and understated. Which is exactly what you want when you are wearing a heavy duty Sabyasachi sari. Check out the back of her blouse - I love love love it! Classic desi looks suit Aishwarya well. Then again, what doesn't?Photo Credit: BCCL/Shantanu Das.
