Freida Pinto In Calvin Klein – Elle’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute

Freida Pinto attended Elle’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute in Beverly Hills yesterday evening.

The Indian actress wore a Calvin Klein calf-length white sleeveless dress.

Her Calvin Klein association isn’t sitting well with me, because I don’t find this shapeless dress particularly flattering on Freida.

This is the second Calvin Klein dress to make her look wider than she actually is.

I also don’t understand her Maryam Keyhani statement necklace.

Whilst the colours complement her Marni shoes, the necklace feels like a failed attempt to jazz up this minimalist look.

    Shoes are by Marni, like 72 seasons ago.

    i actually like the necklace with this — it’s an unusual, but interesting touch. i wished i liked the dress more, though. it really needs to be hemmed and fitted a little better

    I think she looks good. She has had better moments but…it’s not that bad.

    Agree 100% FC.
    Two Calvin Klein clunkers.

    I wish she had skipped the necklace and gone for for more delicate shoes. Full on minimalism would have worked well here.

    I do not understand this look at all. The necklace is unnecessary, the shoes are just odd and that sack of a dress must go down as one of the most unfortunately unflattering gowns I’ve seen in a long while. Even the model who wore it at the show, Josephine Skriver (who I would bet is a size zero), cannot salvage it. Frida fail.

    Don’t get this look either – the only way it could have been flattering would be to wear it short like a 60’s A line dress.

      Couldn’t agree more! The look has potential, but the length of the dress is all wrong! A shorter skirt would have worked so much better.

        good idea.

    The dress is too long.
    It looks thick like she’s wearing a sheet.
    Maybe a betl would have helped along with better footwear.
    My first thought when I saw this was that she looked like one of the Golden Girls.
    Two misses in a row.

    I’m failing to understand whats wrong in this look apart from the shoes.
    and whats with this repugnant over-obsession by women of women who have got beautiful curves.
    The dress falls cleaner on Frida than on the model and that interesting neck piece makes the look unusually divine. Feels like she is a lady who’s also having a little bit of quirky fun !
    The shoes somehow look a wee faded or paler ..but does go with the look.
    And i am swayed away by her impeccable and clean make-up..she looks refreshing !!

    This dress does nothing for beautiful Pinto…

    Different shoes and a shorert hemline would have improved this look. I like the necklace with the dress.

  13. Preeti October 18, 2011 at 15:35 #

    I don’t understand what people see in Freida’s style. There’s nothing extraordinary about it

  14. Mimz October 18, 2011 at 21:53 #

    Her necklace is by Maryam keyhani

    • Fashion Critic October 18, 2011 at 21:58 #


      There are so many more interesting options

    This dress would work if it followed the bodys’ contours all the way down in a pencil skirt style. It’s not Friedas fault really… that cut and length wouldn’t work on anyone.

    • laura D October 19, 2011 at 20:13 #

      I disagree. I think it’s flattering on the model, as it flows and has movement. On the model, the fit is loose over the torso, so that it falls lightly over the hips, and the fabric is light. On Frida, they have fitted the torso more, and lined the fabric (or beefed it up with a heavier one) so that it no longer flows the same way. Even the shape of the neckline is off…

      And the accessories…well, talk about not understanding Calvin Klein’s minimalism.

      • gurlygurl October 20, 2011 at 00:21 #

        Correct .. the top of the dress does look like it’s been altered for Freida. That being said I still don’t like this dress even on the model. It doesn’t do much for the female form… perhaps if the intention is to wear it casually over a bikini it works … otherwise it just looks difficult to wear and unflattering.

    the necklace is graphic and simple and works perfectly with the calvin minimalism
