Actress Freida Pinto attended the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner while at the Venice Film Festival last night.

The Indian actress shied away from her favoured bright and neutral colours, opting instead for a black and gold Alexander McQueen gown.

The cut-outs on the ensemble artfully enhanced her svelte figure, though the pattern tended to engulf her frame as it travelled to the floor.

Freida completed her look with a simple up-do, rose lip and a watch – a nod to the host, perchance?
