Did she kiss a Smurf? Did she overdose on black currant ice cream? What was her makeup artist thinking? Tweeple were in a purple haze as the Queen of Cannes strode on the red carpet in a bold and unusual avatar. Apparently there are some things that even this Cannes veteran can’t seem to pull off. In fact, her unusual choice of lip color was one of the top five trends on social media over the May 15 weekend when the beauty showed up for a screening of her film Sarabjit in an off shoulder embroidered Rami Kadi gown called May Blossom.
Dark brown eyelids and lavender lips do not a pretty face make, or at least that’s what Twitterati seemed to suggest. In fact, one post drew comparisons with Joey Tribbiani’s Lipstick for Men ad from Friends. And what was the name of the lipstick Ms Rai Bachchan was wearing? Deep Fuchsia, apparently named after a flower! So what do you think? Do her lavender lips get a yay or a nay from you?
