Cannes: The host of Bollywood stars walking the red carpet is not the only Indian presence at the Cannes film fest as Hollywood actress Rachel McAdams added to it by sporting some `desi` jewellery during her stint on the French Riviera.

The `Sherlock Holmes` star wore a rose cut diamond bracelet designed by Indian jewellery makers Amrapali for the premiere of the film `Sleeping Beauty`.

The Canadian actress teamed the bracelet worth USD 40,000 with a sequined golden corset and high-waisted golden trousers.

In the past, actresses like Megan Fox, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lopez and Penelope Cruz too have worn pieces created by the designers based in Jaipur.

Indian outfits and accessories have entered mainstream fashion in the West, with many Hollywood celebrities embracing ethnic styles.

R&B star Alicia Keys is a fan of the traditional Indian `maang teeka` and socialite-designer Nicole Richie uses Indian designs in her jewelery line `House of Harlow`.

Earlier the American group `Pussycat Dolls` had walked the red carpet wearing saris to announce their single `Jai Ho`. Liz Hurley, Victoria Beckham and Ashley Judd are some other Hollywood beauties who have donned the Indian ensemble.
