Indian actresses  will walk the red carpet at the forthcoming Cannes International Film Festival on different occasions. They will sport looks inspired by Bollywood's different eras.

The trio will walk as brand ambassadors of beauty brand L'Oreal Paris, which completes 16 years as the official make-up artist for the Cannes film fest. With the gala celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema this year, L'Oreal Paris will commemorate the occasion with L'Or Sunset, a new make-up line.

"As the festival celebrates Indian cinema this year, L'Oreal Paris will bring alive iconic make-up trends inspired by Bollywood that will be sported by both our Indian and international brand ambassadors," Manashi Guha, marketing manager, L'Oreal Paris, said in a statement.

Aishwarya will be making her 12th consecutive appearance this year. She will also be the guest of honour at a special evening celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema at Cannes May 19, besides walking the red carpet May 20. She feels proud.

"It is great to see the Indian film industry being celebrated and honoured on the occasion of its 100th anniversary at an internationally respected platform like the Cannes film festival. This truly signifies the impact made by India on world cinema," said Aishwarya.

This year marks Sonam's third visit to Cannes. She will be present at the opening ceremony of Festival de Cannes May 15, and she will walk the red carpet May 16 as well. She is "absolutely delighted" as "this is the first time I will be part of the opening ceremony".

"Cannes is celebrating Indian Cinema this year and I have never been more proud to be a part of this creative industry. I hope that the Bollywood inspired make-up looks we don this year at Cannes will make global style statements," she said.

Freida, who is popular in international circuits, too will be seen at the opening ceremony. She said: "I am very glad to see that India is getting a lot of recognition at global platforms such as Cannes. Indian cinema has come a long way and is making a tremendous impact internationally and the new and young crop of indie and alternative filmmakers are definitely game changers to watch out for."

    But L'Oreal doesn't care about talented actresses it's about beauty they want to sell their beauty products not a movie so they look for beautiful actresses.

    And why has she been chosen out of all the other pretty and talented people ?! Im a huge fan of Aishwarya and she is a fab actress she rocked in many movies and she's also been a miss world... Coming to SK i agree that she has got a pretty face but the point is not to take a pretty face , if so then i think PC and Deepika would have been ambassadors of L'Oreal and other stuff before her -_-" its just that she is getting all this fame because of her father thats ALL ... And i think i would have been prouder if GREAT and real and deserving people would have gone there for representing our country... Not some mere wanna be star ...

    Sonam and Aishwarya are brand ambassadors of L'Oreal (French product) so if they are representing the brand at the festival it's normal that they are invited each year. If L'Oreal has chosen them to represent their product, then it's not their fault. It's a beauty product so Sonam and Aishwarya represent beauty which I am sure the majority agrees. And as Indians you should be proud those beautiful ladies are representing Indian beauty on the international platform:)

    A big big BIG disappointment ... Why are you hell bent on taking sonam ?! Why her ?! Is she even a star ?! NO she is Anil Kapoor's daughter ... There are real stars like Deepika , Priyanka who are way more GORGEOUS than her and they ACT unlike HER whose got nothing but a KAPOOR after her name , this woman is nothing... The poor thing has hardly worked in 5 films which were a HUGE flop... We want better actors to represent "bollywood" there are plenty of them ... PC , Deepika , Chitrangda, Kareena, Anushka and many more who knows acting and have come all this way on their OWN !!!!!
