Aishwarya Rai is IIFA exquisite!

Aishwarya Rai, looked exquisite at Videocon IIFA Weekend on Friday, June 12, at The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel in Macau, China.

The former Miss World (1994) and international movie star remained flanked by her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan and husband Abhishek Bachchan most of the day.

Aishwarya, 35, exuded style in a grey silk frock with mock neck ruched bodice and structured pleated skirt.

She accessorized with black peep toe heels, diamond drop earrings, a gold bangle in her left arm, a black strap watch in her right arm and a glittery silver clutch. Her medium brown hair, styled in loose curls, draped her shoulders. Her makeup included glossy pink lipstick, golden eye shadow and lots of mascara.

Abhishek rocked his short hair and stubble in a black buttoned up suit, white dress shirt, red and white plaid tie, black dress shoes. Both son and father sported green badges on their coats, which were released earlier by Amitabh at the IIFA opening press conference.

To honor Amitabh Bachchan, the IIFA Brand Ambassador, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong sent his wax likeness to The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel. Aishwarya and Abhishek joined Amitabh on stage to be photographed with the replica.

An exclusive performance of the Cirque du Soleil spectacular at the 1,800-seat custom built ZAIA theater marked the launch of the Videocon International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend. There will be yet another short performance by the group at the IDEA IIFA Awards Ceremony on June 13.

ZAIA artists posed with Aishwarya, Abhishek and Amitabh after the show. Other Bollywood stars who posed with the group included Sushmita Sen and Sonam Kapoor.

Aishwarya will receive an award for outstanding contribution by Indians in international cinema, a newly introduced award category this year. Oscar winner composer A.R. Rahman will be the other recipient of the award.

Aishwarya is joined by her parents but missing at the event was mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan.
