Freida Pinto In Paco Rabanne – L’Oreal Paris 15th Anniversary Dinner

Frieda Pinto joined Fan Bingbing on the red carpet for the L’Oreal Paris 15th Anniversary dinner, held at Plage Orange during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

The angelic star has been showing off a more daring side to her style, and this was very much the case when she wore this Paco Rabanne Spring 2012 dress.

Her white-silk-and-gold chainmail dress is our first look at the dress from this collection on the red carpet.

Once again the shoes are a total buzz kill; thesy are the only thing letting her down this festival.

Gold sandals were clearly the obvious choice with this dress. No? I’m not feeling these Jimmy Choo ‘Linda’ sandals.

A complementary white-and-gold Ferragamo clutch, an updo and a shimmering pink lip colour completed her look.

    I really love this look. The shoes don’t bother me that much but the obvious choice really were gold sandals. I don’t understand what happened there. Other than that, this is a really great look for Freida. If it werent for Cannes this week, I would say this was BDOTW worthy!

    The way she’s pinned it to reveal less of the gold embellishment throws it off for me – the looser, wider shape on the model would have made more of an impact and also been more flattering. Enjoying her run though!

    Awesome makeup and hair; dress is amazing and very interesting to look at. Shame about the shoes, but I like the look nonetheless.

    Freida is quickly becoming one of my fave. Her recent red carpet outings have been amazing and this look is no different. However she needs to up the shoe game

    Freida Pinto and Manish Arora, yay for India!

    I don’t like this dress–it’s a bit shapeless and doesn’t flatter her very much imo. However, would it have killed her to wear gold strappy sandals? Gold peep-toes? Heck, I would have even taken gold pumps!

    She has v big feet she as said that many times and has also said finding something that hits her well is very difficult. Maybe that’s why her shoe choices have been safe Or wrong according to you FC?

    She has given us the most variety in her looks. Its a beautiful dress and she looks lovely. But gold sandals would have been perfect!

    Bad shoes. this is the 3rd time she got em wrong. I think the runway shoes would have looked much better. And am I the only one missing accessories here? I don’t know, she good have done a gold bracelet or watch atleast?

    • Mol May 18, 2012 at 16:47 #

      So agree, the runway shoes would have been great….Otherwise, she looks fabulous to me….

    I think the runway shoes would have been perfect…

    That dress is so amazing on her, match her complexion so perfectly, try to ignore the shoes…

    I agree with the ones who aren’t bothered by her shoe choice in Cannes so far. They’re not great but they definitely don’t kill her looks either.

    Another more than solid look from Freida. She’s on a roll.

  14. Riley May 18, 2012 at 13:14 #

    At first glance I thought this was Chanel.

    I love Freida’s mixed salad of designers. She isn’t predictable. Paco Rabane and Freida Pinto? Well it works on this occasion, but yes the shoes’ nude color isn’t working. If she HAD to have nude sandals, she should’ve chosen nude heels that suited her skintone.

    But everything else is Freida Fabulous.

    I don’t mind the shoes, I really like this dress on her.

  16. rita May 18, 2012 at 13:05 #

    I honestly don’t mind the shoes. She has been the only one who really impressed so far. Variety of looks, a new side. Great hair, great make up, if she adds better shoes she would be perfect.

  17. DSI May 18, 2012 at 13:05 #

    Great to see Frieda rocking it. Yes, agree with the shoe stylist not doing his/her homework!!!

  18. bm May 18, 2012 at 12:52 #

    The shoes get a pass from me. Before you mention that the shoes is not gold, i was wondering, aren’t that gold shoes ?
    And, anyway she killed this look. Amazing.

  19. Ellie May 18, 2012 at 12:52 #

    Eww, what ugly shoes.

  20. Rash May 18, 2012 at 12:51 #

    It was just Wow – Wow – Wow till i reached her ankle! I just felt like getting her phone number from somewhere, call her and tell her that pleassseeeeeeeeee get a new shoe stylist !

    Ankles up though, shez looking gorgeous.:)

    • Charlotte May 18, 2012 at 13:05 #

      The shoes are killing me

  21. Yeliz May 18, 2012 at 12:48 #

    I love how Freida shows us different varieties of dresses at Cannes so far. But here I have to agree that the shoes are a big let down and I prefer the way the model wore this dress.

  22. Christine May 18, 2012 at 12:45 #

    I agree FC. Great red carpet style in Cannes, but each outing paired up with boring or uninspiring shoes.

    • Alina May 18, 2012 at 13:03 #

      I totally agree.

      • bee7 May 18, 2012 at 15:35 #

        I second that!
