This year saw some incredible moments in fashion history, from Kate Middleton's maternity and post-baby fashion to Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar dress and of course, we can't forget Typhoon Paulina Gretzky!

But none of them made us covet their outfits as much as Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai.

Even though the 40-year-old beauty has been acting for years, we didn't notice that she had the style game of a Hollywood A-lister until she attended the inaugural Times Of India Film Awards in Vancouver in the spring wearing a traditional mint green anarkali.

Ever since then, we obsessively tracked the mom's red carpet adventures which took her to the Cannes Film Festival in France and the amFAR Gala in India.

So, to honour Ash's incredible style presence, we take a look at the outfits she wore in 2013 which made us wish we were a Bollywood movie star.
