Freida Pinto In Ralph Lauren – ‘Life of PI’ Dubai Film Festival Premiere & Opening Gala

Freida Pinto glided down the red carpet for the ‘Life of Pi’ premiere and opening gala during day one of the 9th Annual Dubai Film Festival held at the Madinat Jumeirah Complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on Sunday evening.

She was a vision of pure perfection, wearing a one-of-a-kind Ralph Lauren Collection gown which was inspired by the Fall 2012 black version.

Frieda’s gold lamé gown with jewelled serpent-headed collar is one of her most regal looks to date.

A Ferragamo gold and purple enamel minaudière, Charlotte Olympia heels and a large cocktail ring accessorized her look.

Flawless makeup and a wavy updo completed her breathtaking look.

    The model’s version has that waist cinching section that I wish Pinto’s version had as well. Pinto’s fabric choice shows every crease, too.

    Freida Pinto is looking stunning… head to toe perfection… Definitely a BDOTW contender.. 🙂

    It’s a stunning look, classic movie-star glamour. The colour on her is divine as is the make up and the neckline is amazing.

    I much prefer the runway version. I think the gold lamé makes it look a little too costumey for me.

    OH my gosh this is amazing! I love the gold lame–so much more dramatic than the runway black! Is anyone else feeling a Cleolpatra influence (with the snake?) Freida looks amazing. This is completely BDOTW worthy and is Freida’s best look all year imo!!! My only tiny quibble is that across her hips the fabric should be smooth. I like the crinkling everywhere else. But this is just fabulous! 🙂 And it’s only Monday!

    The fabric of the gown in gold looks incredibly cheap to me, although I’m sure it’s not. Freida does look gorgeous though, but I prefer the runway version.

    She looks amazing but I prefer the runway version. I am not liking the wrinkle effect on the gold.

    UMM. BDOTW PLEASE!!! She looks ethereal and elegant and awpeowhoehtt.

    I love that she wore this in gold. She looks gorgeous but I wish the dress was more fitted around the waist.

    • Lisa December 10, 2012 at 19:49 #

      +1. The first thing I noticed was that I didn’t like the way it fits around the waist. A-

  11. Amy December 10, 2012 at 13:25 #

    She killed it. A total lamé look is always a bit of the challenge but Freida is perfect here.

    I do’t honestly love this. Ithink that firstly she looks a little washed out and Idon’t like her makeup, which is fundamental in pulling off a gold dress. I also prefer the runway version. To me the gold version looks cheaper and is much less flattering. Iwish that I loved this but it doesn’t work on the Rec cArpet in my opinion.

    • Nat39 December 10, 2012 at 20:01 #

      My 1st thought – the gold version looks cheap somehow.

    • Natalie19 December 11, 2012 at 17:48 #

      I also don’t like it

      The runway version looks much more elegant.

      Plus, honestly, i think that snake collar/detail is for someone with looong neck. Freida does not look good in it

    FC, I did a little google research about the Dubai Film Festival, and I saw dress Ana Ivanovic was wearing (she is on this picture as well, behind Freida), but I still don’t know who is designer of that dress. Does anybody know?

      Ana is wearing Matthew Williamson Fall 2012 RTW 🙂

    I don’t like the fit, most of all on her chest. I prefer the runway version, also because the jewelled collar stands out better on black.

  16. towanda December 10, 2012 at 12:55 #

    she looks lovely but those creases are a huge shame.i don’t know if it’s cause of fabric

    • Fashion Critic December 10, 2012 at 13:02 #

      it is the fabric

  17. Christopher Teoh Jing Xiang December 10, 2012 at 12:25 #

    Frieda Pinto is definitely the golden goddess in this Ralph Lauren gold lame gown that has jewelled serpent neckline!! Love her side swept bun and flawless makeup that makes her an absolute knockout!! Definitely BDOTW contender!! Dev Patel is really one lucky man, to have such stunning partner!

  18. Beta December 10, 2012 at 10:02 #

    perfection. my favourite Freida look ever

  19. noo December 10, 2012 at 09:19 #

    amazing! my first BDOTW contender 😀

  20. TL December 10, 2012 at 08:53 #

    Love everything except the material of the dress. She looks radiant in gold. Flawless makeups.

  21. Ramsay December 10, 2012 at 08:53 #

    Prefer the runway cut with a tightening fabric effect around the torso – she looks OK

    • kane December 10, 2012 at 14:20 #

      I agree.

  22. Rashmi December 10, 2012 at 08:31 #
