Aishwarya Rai Covers Vogue India, Wears Fantastic Fringe

She's back! (Even though she never really went away.)

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan covers the March 2015 issue of Vogue India and girl looks gorgeous, as usual.

For the cover shot, the 41-year-old Bollywood star channels the '70s—a huge trend for spring 2015—sporting a new fringe haircut, a Tommy Hilfiger fur jacket and a sheer black Saint Laurent blouse.

Inside the issue, the mom releases her inner "American Hustle" fan by wearing a slinky red long-sleeved gown with a knotted centre. She also talks about her supposed "comeback": after giving birth to daughter Aaradhya Bachchan in 2011, the actress took a break from making films. But, Ash doesn't want you to call her Vogue cover a comeback.

"Yes, there was a maternity leave, just like any other working woman," she tells the mag. "In fact, I was working right up to my sixth month, with my various product endorsements and other stuff. There were no movies, obviously."

Although she hasn't been making films, she's hardly been out of the spotlight. A regular at the Cannes Film Festival, the actress continues to make commercials and special public appearances.
