Keeping it simple: Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai looked pretty in a brown dress and black heels at a photocall in Cannes yesterday
It must be difficult having to come up with outfits for every single occasion ahead of the Cannes Film Festival.
So Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai can be forgiven for going for a plain outfit as she attended a photocall for the festival yesterday.
However, while Aishwarya's dress was absent of any glamour, it flattered her lithe figure and complemented her brunette hair.
Beautiful: Aishwarya is arguably one of the most recognisable Indian actresses in the world
The 37-year-old actress teamed the dress with a pair of black strappy sandals as she posed on the dock.
Aishwarya, who is arguably one of the most recognisable Indian actresses, was at Cannes to announce she would be signing on for a new project - a tale of a fictional Bollywood star entitled Heroine.
Asked if the film would be at all autobiographical, Aishwarya replied: 'That's what the viewer will probably be searching for, but very honestly, as an actor, it's your professional responsibility to give to your characters with absolute commitment.

Aishwarya posed at the photocall with director Bhandarkar and producer Ronnie Screwvala.
The actress has been keeping busy during the Cannes Film Festival, and also made an appearance at the opening night ceremony and screening of Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris looking stunning in a nude asymmetric beaded gown.
A release date for Heroine has yet to be announced, but production is due to commence in June.
