Freida Pinto was a busy girl this weekend in Dubai as, in addition to serving as a member of the jury for the 2012 Dubai International Film Festival, she also attended the Dubai Cares and Oxfam ‘One Night Lives’ Charity Gala at the Armani Hotel on Friday evening.

The actress graced the red carpet in an attention-grabbing vintage Valentino gown.

Undoubtedly knowing how jaw-dropping the gorgeous dress is on its own, she made the perfect choice of keeping her hair pulled up and her accessories very simple.

Only a Roger Vivier ‘Boite de Nuit’ clutch stands against the stunner dress that not only is the perfect shade of red, but also screams “Whoever wears me will instantly look like a classic Hollywood starlet”.

That’s probably why Valentino released a very similar version of the vintage gown as part of their 2013 resort collection, proving that if it isn’t broke, there’s no need to fix it.
