I knew it wouldn’t be long before Freida Pinto would land a magazine cover. The Indian beauty has been wowing us with her red carpet style, so she was a natural choice to be the March 2009 cover girl of Vogue India.
She looks gorgeous on the cover, wearing a cute embellished mini dress from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2009 collection. The dress also has cut-outs, metallics and sheer capped shoulders, which work with dark lips and soft curls. I would have loved to see her full-length in this dress.
On begin recognised for her style: “Iâ€™ve become so much more aware of the fashion world recently â€” and Iâ€™m doomed now. Thereâ€™s no turning back.”
On her own style mantra: “Youâ€™ve got to go with instinct, the right dress will make your heart skip a beat. Youâ€™ve got to fall in love with what youâ€™re wearing to really pull it off.”
At the Vogue shoot, when a reporter asked stylist Tiina Laakkonen why Pinto isn’t being dressed exclusively in Indian fashion, Pinto grabbed a pencil and scribbled her answer on a scrap of paper, ‘Because she’s international now!’
The magazine hits stands today.
