L’Oréal Paris ambassador Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was all set to walk the Cannes red carpet yesterday, however, she wasn’t able to do so owing to the Air Traffic Control Strike in France. The press note states:

Aishwarya’s flight from London to Nice was delayed and hence, she hasn’t been able to reach Cannes as planned. With the latest development, the L’Oréal Paris team is making arrangements for Aishwarya to walk the red carpet on an alternate day.

Manashi Guha, General Manager, L’Oréal Paris India said, “Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is truly a global icon for L’Oréal Paris and has been attending Cannes on behalf of the brand for 13 years now. While the delay has been unfortunate, we are making sure that Aishwarya attends the event on an alternate date and we are sure she will dazzle as always.”
