She wore a heavily embroidered black and gold Sabyasachi sari with a golden hair ornament to the 100 years of Indian cinema celebration where she was the Guest Of Honour.For the screening of Inside Llewyn Davis, the brand ambassador for L'Oreal at Cannes, wore a black lace-print Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture gown, which a few publications point out, is quite similar to her last year's Elie Saab dark grey belted dress.Keeping her hair and make-up simple, Bachchan looked absolutely stunning, outshining all other Indian actors who have failed to impress so far with most of their outfits largely being dull and over-sized.
