Gone are the high fashion gowns this year. We hear that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be sporting a sari and churidar-kurtas from Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla's classic collections on the red carpet. Incidentally, Big B's clan wears the designer duo's creations to most formal events, and their association goes back over 20 years.
A source close to Ash says, "She has decided to ditch designer gowns and go completely Indian at Cannes. She will walk the red carpet on May 24 and 25. While Abu-Sandeep, Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Shahab Durazi were shortlisted to provide outfits, she finally decided to stick to Abu-Sandeep. The sari is off-white with chikankari work and antique gold embroidery. The churidar-kurtas are in beige and cream and classic Abu-Sandeep. Instead of choosing her usual dark colours, Ash has gone pastel this year."

The actress apparently deliberated for two weeks before taking the final call on her wardrobe. "The kurtas are long and flowy, with one in the anarkali style. Both have heavy zari and gold work on them. Ash feels that India has so much to offer in terms of beautiful, handcrafted ensembles, so why not show them off to the world?"
Ash will be accompanied by her baby, Aaradhya, her nanny, mother Vrinda Rai, hair and make-up stylists and her PR agent. "Abhishek is busy dubbing for his next release and won't accompany Ash and the baby," reveals the source.
On her arrival in Cannes today, she will have a wardrobe session with New York-based designer Michael Angel and return to India on May 26.
