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: “I’ve become so much more aware of the fashion world recently — and I’m doomed now. There’s no turning back.”

On her own style mantra: “You’ve got to go with instinct, the right dress will make your heart skip a beat. You’ve got to fall in love with what you’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.
