Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has come a long way, not just in her acting career but also as the face of India at the prestigious annual Cannes Film Festival. The French Riviera has loved having her walk down the red carpet for more than a decade.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s red carpet looks aren’t just a reflection of her fashion sensibility, but also of turning points in her life. From her big Bachchan wedding to her pregnancy and a fluctuating sense of style, ranging from super plunging necklines to ‘dressed for an Indian wedding’ look—Ash has been through a great deal.

Here’s Aishwarya slaying it in style on the Cannes red carpet over the years:
