Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better? Frieda Pinto or Lakshmi Menon

From the runway to editorials, both Freida Pinto and Lakshmi Menon wore this stunning embellished Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2009 maroon dress in their recent editorials.

Freida wore the dress in her Vogue India March 2009 editorial, in a pose that saw her leaning against a couch quite passively.

Lakshmi’s Dazed & Confused April 2009 editorial was more powerful, with her dripping in gold necklaces, looking like a goddess. I’m still in total awe of her.

Freida doesn’t even come close. Lakshmi wins this easily.

    Since these are both editorials…I think it’s a case of apples and oranges.

    That said, I do prefer the Freida shot.

    Well, by now probably everyone knows I’m not a Pinto fan, but for some reason, I prefer Freida’s version. I adore Lakshmi, yet her version is a clear case of V.I.S.U.A.L O.V.E.R.L.O.A.D. You can’t really see the shape of the dress. “Latika” looks feminine AND opulent, but not so heavy.

    I agree with Paulo, different editorials with different purposes. I can’t really chose here.

    The dress is stunning, though, I want to see some red carpet diva wearing it… Cate Blanchette would rock this.

    Lakshmi’s versison has way too much going on. I much prefer Frieda’s version the dress is a big statement on it’s own, there is no need for a ton of accessories.

    I couldn’t agree more with you..as much as i love Freida, she doesn’t even come close..Lakshmi looks absolutely breathtaking! The concept of the shoot is amazing and, Nicola Formichetti did a wonderful job, and the model is superlative..couldn’t ask for more! And yes cari, this poll better change ^-^
