CANNES, France (AP) — Bollywood star and l'Oreal ambassador Aishwarya Rai may well have caused boats to crash as she posed for cameras on the Cannes dock at the photo call for her film "Jazbaa" on Tuesday.

The 41-year old beauty wore a bordeaux-colored Oscar de la Renta organza and silk taffeta gown with layered lattices that gave a classic gown a fashion-forward twist.

The dropped waist and long torso ensured that everyone got a sense of her enviable figure and her deep red lips purred sexy.
