After a series of stunning appearances on the red carpet of the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival in France, as well as the amfAR Cinema Against Aids gala, Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been spotted shopping in London.
The 39-year-old Indian actress is in the city for the Chime for Change concert and was seen at a shoe store, with her husband and fellow actor Abhishek Bachchan. And with the happy couple was their 16-month-old daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan.
The youngest member of one of the most influential families in Indian cinema makes her second visit to the city; she was last here nine months ago, for a brief holiday with her parents.
Meanwhile, Aishwarya, a former Miss World, had a Louis Vuitton bag and a baby stroller. And, after a series of black dresses at Cannes, the actress was once again in her favourite colour - she wore a black overcoat. Abhishek Bachchan sported a gray turtle-neck sweater and a trench coat.
The couple were photographed shopping New York City as well, when they returned from Vancouver. The two were in Canada for the first annual The Times of India Film Awards (TOIFA).
Chime for Change
The Chime for Change concert will feature the Bollywood duo as one of several celebrity presenters. Scheduled for 1 June, the event has been organised by Hollywood star Salma Hayek Pinault, singer Beyoncé Knowles and Frida Giannini, creative director for Gucci.
Chime for Change is a fund raising initiative, aimed at raising money and awareness for the empowerment of girls and women from all around the world.
\"I am proud to be joining the growing international movement. I believe that by working together we can change the course of history to ensure that girls and women are empowered to realise their potential and thrive,\" Mexico-born Salma Hayek Pinault, co-founder of Chime for Change, said.
