Best Dressed of the Day Freida Pinto

My best dressed of the day in association with shoescribe.com was a very clear winner: Freida Pinto in Sanchita.

She inspired a selection of shoes, including the MICHAEL Michael Kors rhinestone-accented caged booties for their complementary colour and contemporary edge, and the Gianvito Rossi crystal-accented ankle-strap heels for being sexy and dripping with bling, much like Freida’s side-slit gown.

Freida Pinto In Sanchita – ‘Jeune & Jolie’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Freida Pinto - 'Jeune & Jolie' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Freida Pinto had her second night out during Cannes Film Festival for the premire of ‘Jeune & Jolie’ held at the Palais des Festivals in France this evening.

The Indian actress wore a custom gown by Indian designer Sanchita featuring a side slit, intricate beading throughout and dragonfly embroidered details which also accented her silky updo.

Over the two nights, I have to say I adore this look, from the overall styling to the warm subtle hue and makeup which tonight consists of a vivid red lip colour.

Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and a Swarovski clutch round out her look.

I’m glad she gave this up-and-coming designer a chance to shine on the world stage.

Last night Gucci dressed Freida Pinto for the premiere of The Great Gatsby on the opening night of the 66th Annual Cannes International Film Festival.

Here is an exclusive sketch showcasing Freida one of a king Gucci coral silk chiffon halter gown with fully embellished belt.

The India actress is set to work with Gucci once again because on June 1, Freida will be among the presenters at ‘The Sound of Change Live,’ a global concert event taking place at London’s Twickenham Stadium which will be broadcast around the world.

The concert event, headlined by Beyonce Knowles, will be presented by CHIME FOR CHANGE, the recently launched global campaign founded by Gucci, which serves to raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment.

Freida Pinto In Gucci – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Freida Pinto In Gucci - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

This is the one I was waiting for. Freida Pinto more than lived up to my expectations this evening while attending ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, which also serves as the Opening Ceremony.

The Indian actress wore a one-of-a-kind Gucci coral silk chiffon halter gown which was accented with gold-embellished belt and styled with complementary open-toe shoes.

Adding more gold to her look, she selected Chopard earrings which were on full display thanks to her braided updo.

I love the Bollywood feel to this look with the bright colour and opulent accessories.

She looked like she was having a ball on this red carpet.

Freida Pinto In Maiyet – Maiyet Varanasi Silk Capsule Collection Private Dinner Party

Freida Pinto In Maiyet - Maiyet Varanasi Silk Capsule Collection Private Dinner Party

Freida Pinto attended the Maiyet Varanasi Silk Capsule Collection private dinner party hosted by Barney’s at the Consulate General of India in New York City on Thursday.

Sporting a rich mix of colours, the Indian actress wore a Maiyet Spring 2013 ensemble.

She wore a bright-blue v-neck pleated dress with double layers, accented with a black leather belt and styled with a green-and-blue collarless jacquard blazer.

Adding yet more spice to her look, she carried a Maiyet ‘Ayla’ beige clutch with gold trims and a brown leather cut-out detail, and wore strappy leather booties.

As always, Freida is the picture of elegance. I have nothing but admiration for this look.

I can’t wait to see her during Cannes Film Festival over the coming days.

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

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.
