Beautiful people from around the world have descended on the French seaside town of Cannes, for its 65th namesake film festival, and we’re on the prowl for a Sonam Kapoor sighting.  

It’s the Aishwarya Rai and Sonam Kapoor edition of Desperately Seeking Sonam: Cannes Film Festival 2012.

There has been a lot of talk about Aishwarya and her baby and her body. Frankly, we don’t care. Girlfriend looked hot in a maxi dress by Australian designer, Angelo Katsapis. This may very well be the year when we actually like what Aishwarya Rai is wearing at Cannes.

We also have a first look at Aishwarya’s walk on the red carpet for the amfAR ball, which benefits the American Foundation for Aids Research. She’s seen below in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla sari with a fitted, long sleeve blouse. The blouse is a bit busy, but she looks good.

And now onto Ms. Sonam Kapoor. She’s been hiding from the cameras for the past couple of days, but we finally caught a glimpse of her at the Chopard party.

Sonam is wearing a gown by Naeem Khan from the Fall 2012 collection, and paired it with Chopard jewels. We’re on the fence about the dress – she looks nice, but the dress seems a little flat. Maybe it’s the print, the bow, or the volume. Matte red lipstick may have made the look pop more.

Still Desperately Seeking Sonam. She’s expected to walk the red carpet on May 27 for the 65th Cannes Film Festival Closing Gala. We also expect to see more of Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan on May 25, when she will walk the red carpet, reportedly with her new baby girl in tow.
