The former Miss World has attended Cannes for fifteen consecutive years, and her fashion picks are second to none…almost.

Check out 15 of Aishwarya's best and worst looks at Cannes over the years.

Aishwarya Rai made her debut at Cannes in 2002 to promote her movie Devdas. She wore heavy gold jewelry and a gold sari by Neeta Lulla fit for a goddess.

Her look the following year didn’t win her much praise. She wore a neon green sari with a beaded blouse. That tight bun didn't do much to save her look.

She came in with a bang in 2004. Instead of playing it safe with a sari, she wore a sensual and revealing gown by Neeta Lulla.

In 2005, Ash stepped it up and wowed everyone in a flirty Giorgio Armani dress and a long black Gucci gown with a plunging neckline.

In 2006, she wore a simple but elegant blue strapless gown with a snake-like neckpiece. The slit on the side of the dress added just enough oomph for the eye.

With her beau by her side in 2007, the glowing new bride stunned in a white Giorgio Armani gown.

Aishwarya looked glamorous in 2008 with her golden gown, sensuous in black and then absolutely stunning in a bold fuchsia gown.

She wore a Roberto Cavalli strapless white gown and an Elie Saab gown with slicked-back hair in 2009.

Promoting Raavan in 2010, Aishwarya wore an Elie Saab piece in violet and a short-train Armani Privé strapless black gown with red lips.

With her pregnancy glow in full effect, 2011 saw Aishwarya in a one-shoulder embroidered Elie Saab gown and an elegant geometric Armani Privé dress with smoky eyes.

Kudos to the former Miss World for not shying away from her post-pregnancy body. In 2012, she wore yet another Elie Saab gown showing off her new mom body.

Having lost much of her pregnancy weight in 2013, Ash got nods of approval from the fashion police in this one-shoulder teal Gucci gown at the premiere of Behind the Candelabra.

In 2014, she wore beautiful gowns by Roberto Cavalli. She looked stunning in the glamorous strapless gold gown and the dazzling white one.

And finally in 2016, though her purple lips with smoky eyes gave her sort of a scary look, she did manage to turn heads in the stunning golden-beaded Ali Younes gown with a beaded cape.
