Gracing the red carpet of the Westpac Awards in her classy and elegant style, Aishwarya Rai looked nothing but amazing in her traditional avatar. Aishwarya opted for a traditional look for the big event and turned up at the red carpet in a blue velvet long line kurta paired with a floor length skirt. The traditional kurta had contrast golden zardozi work all over it and it looked flattering on Aishwarya. Since the outfit had heavy and intricate designs, she kept her makeup and hairdo simple. The nude makeup and open sleek and straight hair accentuated her look.
