However, Aishwarya Rai has given out a detailed explanation about her purple lipstick at Cannes, and says it was not her personal choice but she accepts what her makeup artists have decided for her, as they are "highly qualified professionals". Aishwarya Rai's statement reads,
"I work with L'oreal so it's really their prerogative and I am cool about it. I am their brand ambassador so obviously, it is my responsibility to deliver what they expect from me and I have gladly done that year after year and you a have enjoyed watching me on the red carpet. I have always said that I go on floor and you all enjoy the show. Even this year, you guys did the same; enjoyed the show."
"I have got there with some highly qualified professionals in tow to work with with me .Scarlet does my make-up and Stevans does my hair over the years and they are doing their jobs brilliantly.Scarlet had always done magical creativity with me over the years now and even this year she wanted to do something different and I was like go ahead. We have enjoyed a lot and so did the media, over the years you may have seen the creativity and primarily, it's all about the fashion and I let my professionals do their job."
Aishwarya Rai further commented,
"It's blatantly about the hair and make-up product company and that's what your blatantly projecting.Scarlet wanted to me go purple so I was like ,go ahead and have fun and that's what everyone too had. It was interesting and it has evoked all sort of responses and art does that. I am fine with all the responses sometimes people get it and sometimes they don't.. sometimes they are like wow and sometimes they are like, really? But that's okay."
