Freida Pinto In Rachel Roy - Indian Film Festival Of Los Angeles (IFFLA) Opening

The red carpet met its match in a crimson-clad Freida Pinto, who sizzled at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles’s Opening Night Gala at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood yesterday evening.

The actress stunned in a Rachel Roy Spring 2013 dress, worn in a much hotter shade than the taupe look-book version. On this occasion, the red feels far more appropriate.

While the one-shoulder silhouette and ruffled peplum detail of the dress seem vaguely familiar, even ubiquitous, at this point, I appreciate the effortless chic factor of this look.

To accessorize, she carried a Thale Blanc clutch and wore a Joan Hornig brass lizard cuff. Metallic gold shoes thankfully stood in for a black pair.

We don’t often see Freida with her hair worn down and straight. But with her trendy fringe bang, it was a fresh—and sultry—way to finish this look.
