Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is undeniably style pin-up, thanks to her effortlessly classic looks. So, we all had a bit of a surprise when she showcased a rather fashion-forward lip colour at the premiere of her film “Sarbjit”, at Cannes Film Festival.

The actress donned a lick of pale purple lippy, which immediately divided opinion online. 

Although, we all know purple lips are by no means a new trend it was all anyone was looking at. Even though Bachchan was also wearing a show-stopping floral embellished Rami Kadi dress.

We are all for a bit of purple lippy, but even we can’t help but think that she should of gone for a less distracting colour. Maybe leave the experimental lippy colours for a less prestigious and scrutinising event that is Cannes Film Festival. 

People on Twitter immediately sunk their teeth into the beauty look with one user tweeting, “Did Aishwarya kiss a smurf?” and another asking for a petition to fire her make-up artist - bit dramatic.
