Aishwarya Rai Goes Glam On The Orient Express For Longines (PHOTOS)

Aishwarya Rai was probably hoping there wouldn't be a murder on the Orient Express when she recently boarded the iconic train for a Longines dinner event.

The Royal Ascot fan, who is a brand ambassador of the Swiss watch company, struck an elegant pose in a blue mermaid dress by Ariella Couture.

The special gown featured a showstopping jewel-encrusted neck piece, which lit up the gorgeous Bollywood star's dark mane of hair and olive skin. Call us jealous!

However, despite the 39-year-old's star power, Rai-Bachchan couldn't seem to get service at her table! A photo of the "Most Beautiful Woman in the World" showed her sitting down across from a friend with empty china dishes and crystal glasses. Either someone forgot to send a waiter over or the reigning fashion queen of Cannes 2013 didn't feel like eating.

We would probably lose our appetite too if we knew the outcome of Agatha Christie's famous murder mystery novel.
