Freida Pinto In Michael Angel – ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Some of you were feeling a sense of déjà vu when Eva Longoria stepped out onto the red carpet for the 2012 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ premiere this evening.

The same can’t be said for Freida Pinto’s Michael Angel look, because it was totally fresh and original.

Her strapless dress with a multi-coloured crystallized bodice and pink draped skirt with a thigh-high split is one-of-a-kind.

The look was which is accented with a silver waistband and styled with bejeweled Louis Vuitton lizard miniaudiere which complemented the bodice of her dress plus shimmering silver Louis Vuitton platform sandals is stunning.

I have a feeling this might be a Marmite dress, but I think this is one of Freida best ever looks.

A sweeping updo and Chopard jewels provided the finishing touches.

    Frieda looks lovely. And the gown is stunning. Very creative and refreshing look!

    LOVE IT! its really original for her and thats what you want to see at cannes. i really like the accessories not sure about the platform on the shoe but i think she gets away with it as they compliment the dress pretty well.

    • bas May 16, 2012 at 22:20 #

      I totally agree.

  3. Paddy M May 16, 2012 at 19:29 #

    I like the dress, but she looks very short. On the other hand, Eva Longoria looked 5’10”+ in her Marchesa gown.

    • Erica May 16, 2012 at 19:49 #

      There’s something off/hunched about Freida’s posture here which makes her look patently short. Freida did look 5’10+ in Antonio Berardi at the Immortals premier last year, so we know she can work it.

      Love Freida’s unexpected, sweet/edgy look!

      • Iris May 16, 2012 at 20:24 #

        Agree — I love the dress and the way Freida looks, but wish the waist was more tightly cinched to give her more shape. Despite the peplum, she looks slightly boxy.

  4. Yeliz May 16, 2012 at 19:29 #

    Definitely on of Freida’s best looks. I love how the colors look against her skin tone, I love that she didn’t wore pumps, I love that she didn’t chose a boring clutch, I love her hair, I love her make-up.. Guess I love everything here.

  5. Jacqu May 16, 2012 at 19:29 #

    The bustier is gorgeous! Though I’m not too sure about the draping of the skirt. May be if I come back to it or stare at it a bit more it’ll grow on me.

    …maybe not.

    • Jacqu May 16, 2012 at 19:30 #

      Meep, I meant bodice. (massive facepalm)

  6. fashionmint May 16, 2012 at 19:30 #

    wonderful delight !

  7. Riley May 16, 2012 at 19:30 #

    Okay I LOVE this. I love everything about this unique off-kilter (but in the best way) gown.

    She accessorized perfectly. Her clutch is divine and her shoes are a great choice. Swoon swoon swoon.

    Michael Angel should make custom looks for her as his runway looks are’t Freida Friendly.

    Totally one of her best looks.

    • Linda May 16, 2012 at 19:55 #

      I agree with every word. The jewellery is especially perfect and gorgeous, the green earrings and the pink ring are so perfect (I looked at closeups on Getty).

    I really liked it until I got to the shoes and toenail polish – they don’t work at all for me.

    • smolls May 16, 2012 at 23:27 #

      Agreed – the shoes & toenail polish might be ruining this entire look + the bodice makes her look really short-waisted which isn’t flattering. And the peplum is a bit large on her small frame…but the shoes are killing me. :(

  9. Malinda Jane May 16, 2012 at 19:33 #

    I love this look! It’s so refreshing to see some colour. All of the blush/nude/black gowns we’ve been seeing need some of the fun this dress has.

  10. dressaddict May 16, 2012 at 19:33 #

    Yessss, fabulous!

  11. bm May 16, 2012 at 19:34 #

    Yes, this is one of her best look (alongside her first Oscar Christian Dior look, and Antonio Berardi last year at Immortal premiere.
    And what i love about her, is that everytime she hit red carpet, she always bring a new, fresh look. Her look never look the same, so far.

    • Erica May 16, 2012 at 19:50 #

      I agree: different red carpet, different look!

  12. vicky May 16, 2012 at 19:35 #

    Now, this i LOVE!

  13. Rashmi May 16, 2012 at 19:36 #

    Beautiful! Love the bodice of the dress and her hair and makeup.. she looks divine in the closeup shots.. Would have preferred a delicate sandal with the dress though!

  14. dee May 16, 2012 at 19:37 #

    I love that this is so different and she looks pretty but I think this would look better on someone who could fill out the top more.

  15. Linda May 16, 2012 at 19:38 #

    Absolutely breathtaking, refreshing, gorgeous!!! My fav so far!

  16. honeythief May 16, 2012 at 19:38 #

    just gorgeous

  17. gabis May 16, 2012 at 19:38 #

    From the ankles up I agree with you, FC. It’s one of her best looks ever. Hair and makeup are fantastic. Too bad I can’t stand silver platform sandals, otherwise I’d grant an A+.

  18. Rash May 16, 2012 at 19:40 #

    Trust Freida to wear something different and still work the hell out of it! Her make up is spot on as always and I loved the way the bright pink color contrasted the red carpet! She looks so fresh and bright and what a lovely smile :-)

  19. Elle May 16, 2012 at 19:47 #

    Oooh I love this dress! Such a pretty colour scheme and she looks gorgeous!

  20. fromchi-town May 16, 2012 at 19:51 #

    This look is growing on me. I like it that it is so unexpected. But I am not really liking the shoe choice. Also, the hair on her face is bothering me. But I love her clutch choice.

  21. mm May 16, 2012 at 19:54 #

    I dont like the bodice of the dress.

  22. Mary May 16, 2012 at 19:54 #

    I really love this! Dear FC, what do you mean “marmite dress”? I did some research, do you mean “hate it or love it”? Keep up the good work, as always! (and may your wish list come true ;)

    • Fashion Critic May 16, 2012 at 19:57 #

      yes…love it or hate it.

  23. Sabreena May 16, 2012 at 19:54 #

    This is definitely one of freida’s best ever looks! Love this look from head to toe…especially her flawless makeup!

  24. justme May 16, 2012 at 19:55 #

    That is one beautiful dress. I do wish the bodice was more fitted or that it was on someone who would fill it out more.

    She picked great accessories. I love the earrings, the clutch and the shoes.

    Hair, make-up and face are flawfree as usual.

  25. shoko May 16, 2012 at 20:20 #

    love it

  26. Ramsay May 16, 2012 at 20:25 #

    Just like at the Golden Globes I think her waist is too high in that dress (which if it weren’t for that detail I would’ve liked)

  27. asherlev1 May 16, 2012 at 20:29 #

    I’m lusting after that dress. A total knockout. My only knitpick is with those shoes. XP From the ankles up, this look is DIVINE.

  28. CTgirl May 16, 2012 at 20:36 #

    I’m not digging that crazy peplum drapey thing.

  29. Jones19 May 16, 2012 at 21:09 #

    I’m loving this look. Such an inspired and unexpected choice by Frida. Kudos.

  30. Ingrid May 16, 2012 at 21:13 #

    she looks great – such a refreshing look on her!

  31. Christine May 16, 2012 at 22:41 #

    I don’t like it. Not this round.

  32. annel May 16, 2012 at 22:45 #

    SO beautiful! She nearly always blows me away with her colourful style and charming smile.

    And thanks so much for covering, FC! Your coverage is superb.

    • Fashion Critic May 16, 2012 at 22:48 #

      thank you x

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 00:13 #

      OK.

  34. pipsqueak May 17, 2012 at 03:00 #

    She could use some training in the posing and standing department. She’s beautiful and so are the clothes. She exudes sweetness and warmth, but not enough confidence.

  35. EmmaWoodhouse May 17, 2012 at 03:03 #

    As I don’t like thigh-high slits, that element of the gown doesn’t work for me. I also think it makes the look too cluttered. I do love the soft peplum and luscious pink skirt, but the bustier has me undecided. Is it bold and beautiful, or too kitschy? Not sure.

    • EmmaWoodhouse May 17, 2012 at 03:03 #

      Love her hair here.

  36. A. May 17, 2012 at 09:27 #

    The bodice is extraordinarily beautiful. She looks sweet

  37. manja May 17, 2012 at 09:53 #

    love it too cause it’s so refreshing and different,even if it makes her little bit boxy & short,still love it

  38. Jess2 May 17, 2012 at 11:47 #

    Love it, especially the colours!! So fresh and gorgeous!! I have a feeling this is going to be an awesome 12 days of style from Freida :)

  39. Katie May 17, 2012 at 12:00 #

    Stunning, the colours are devine, FC your doing an amazing job as always with your site

    • Fashion Critic May 17, 2012 at 12:04 #

      thank you Katie x

  40. Alina May 17, 2012 at 14:41 #

    I love the dress, but I don’t like the shoes and the hairstyle.

  41. Valeria May 18, 2012 at 04:29 #

    Hate it:( cheap-looking prom dress

  42. Shaina May 18, 2012 at 23:04 #

    This gown is a work of art. Frieda is very lucky to wear it, just amazing.
