    I christen this moment #AishwaRiRiya for the rest of eternity.

    For the 16th year in a row, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked the Cannes Film Festival red carpet tonight.

    She was there to attend the screening of South Korean-American film Okja.

    Rihanna, who needs no introduction, was also attending the same movie screening.

    I hope for this guy to get off his phone someday and fondly tell his grandkids of this day.

    Let's take one more look at our new screensavers because god is real and she is kind.
