Aishwarya Rai Cannes 2012 Pics - Whats the Big Deal?

The Indian media scrambled to get the first pics Aishwarya Rai walking the red carpet of Cannes 2012. The Cannes other media wondered whats the big deal. The big deal is that media critics / youtube viral video makers / the Bachchan family numerous fans(?) expected Aish to appear as a very slightly slimmer version of Saroj Khan at Cannes - and were wondering how she will carry it off.

Aishwarya Rai has thumbed her nose at all - by appearing graceful and glamorous in an Indian ensemble (a peach chikankari saree over a long embroidered golden kurti) on the red carpet and a in stunning flowing Angelo Katsapis outfit - that makes good use of a black drape, pics released to the media. No she doesnt look slim like a Nicole Kidman or a missing Jolie. She doesnt look a desperate case. She looks like a healthy woman enjoying her motherhood and who "cleans up" really well.

A big thank you Aishwarya for NOT trying to look like Victoria Beckham after Mommyhood. Our attitude to marriage and motherhood does rankle. It seems a throwback to real medieval times when the media debates if  she/ any other actress will "pursue their career" after motherhood / marriage! Come on - these girls are professionals who have come up the hard way. What has marriage and motherhood got to do with a career? Who are others to debate on it? I truly see red when I see headlines like "Aishwarya to act in movies after motherhood". She is a mother, she is not dead.

Here are Aishwarya Rai's pics from Cannes 2012

No, I am not going to give links to Aishwarya Rai's fat pics.
