Cannes is all about extravaganza. Our beloved former Miss World ensued for the red carpet along with her little girl, Aaradhya. On Saturday, Ash wore a beautiful mermaid silhouette, extravagant peacock-print sequinned dress with a low-cut neckline and an attached long train of the beautiful flair. The gown had shades of violet, red and blue threadworks and was embellished in Swarovski crystals and French paillettes.

A post on Michael Cinco’s official Instagram page read, “The 10-foot long train took 3,000 of man-hours to finish and intricately handcrafted to make it this exquisitely flighty and timeless,”
