Freida Pinto In Michael Angel – ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Some of you were feeling a sense of déjà vu when Eva Longoria stepped out onto the red carpet for the 2012 Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ premiere this evening.

The same can’t be said for Freida Pinto’s Michael Angel look, because it was totally fresh and original.

Her strapless dress with a multi-coloured crystallized bodice and pink draped skirt with a thigh-high split is one-of-a-kind.

The look was which is accented with a silver waistband and styled with bejeweled Louis Vuitton lizard miniaudiere which complemented the bodice of her dress plus shimmering silver Louis Vuitton platform sandals is stunning.

I have a feeling this might be a Marmite dress, but I think this is one of Freida best ever looks.

A sweeping updo and Chopard jewels provided the finishing touches.

    This gown is a work of art. Frieda is very lucky to wear it, just amazing.

  2. Valeria May 18, 2012 at 4:29 am #

    Hate it:( cheap-looking prom dress

  3. Alina May 17, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    I love the dress, but I don’t like the shoes and the hairstyle.

  4. Katie May 17, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    Love it, especially the colours!! So fresh and gorgeous!! I have a feeling this is going to be an awesome 12 days of style from Freida 🙂

  6. manja May 17, 2012 at 9:53 am #

    love it too cause it’s so refreshing and different,even if it makes her little bit boxy & short,still love it

  7. A. May 17, 2012 at 9:27 am #

    The bodice is extraordinarily beautiful. She looks sweet

  8. EmmaWoodhouse May 17, 2012 at 3:03 am #

    As I don’t like thigh-high slits, that element of the gown doesn’t work for me. I also think it makes the look too cluttered. I do love the soft peplum and luscious pink skirt, but the bustier has me undecided. Is it bold and beautiful, or too kitschy? Not sure.

    • EmmaWoodhouse May 17, 2012 at 3:03 am #

      Love her hair here.

  9. pipsqueak May 17, 2012 at 3:00 am #

    She could use some training in the posing and standing department. She’s beautiful and so are the clothes. She exudes sweetness and warmth, but not enough confidence.

    SO beautiful! She nearly always blows me away with her colourful style and charming smile.

    And thanks so much for covering, FC! Your coverage is superb.

    • Fashion Critic May 16, 2012 at 10:48 pm #

      thank you x

  12. Christine May 16, 2012 at 10:41 pm #

    I don’t like it. Not this round.

  13. Ingrid May 16, 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    she looks great – such a refreshing look on her!

  14. Jones19 May 16, 2012 at 9:09 pm #

    I’m loving this look. Such an inspired and unexpected choice by Frida. Kudos.

  15. CTgirl May 16, 2012 at 8:36 pm #

    I’m not digging that crazy peplum drapey thing.

  16. asherlev1 May 16, 2012 at 8:29 pm #

    I’m lusting after that dress. A total knockout. My only knitpick is with those shoes. XP From the ankles up, this look is DIVINE.

  17. Ramsay May 16, 2012 at 8:25 pm #

    Just like at the Golden Globes I think her waist is too high in that dress (which if it weren’t for that detail I would’ve liked)

  18. shoko May 16, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

    love it

  19. justme May 16, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

    That is one beautiful dress. I do wish the bodice was more fitted or that it was on someone who would fill it out more.

    She picked great accessories. I love the earrings, the clutch and the shoes.

    Hair, make-up and face are flawfree as usual.

  20. Sabreena May 16, 2012 at 7:54 pm #

    This is definitely one of freida’s best ever looks! Love this look from head to toe…especially her flawless makeup!

  21. Mary May 16, 2012 at 7:54 pm #

    I really love this! Dear FC, what do you mean “marmite dress”? I did some research, do you mean “hate it or love it”? Keep up the good work, as always! (and may your wish list come true 😉

    • Fashion Critic May 16, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

      yes…love it or hate it.

  22. mm May 16, 2012 at 7:54 pm #

    I dont like the bodice of the dress.

  23. fromchi-town May 16, 2012 at 7:51 pm #

    This look is growing on me. I like it that it is so unexpected. But I am not really liking the shoe choice. Also, the hair on her face is bothering me. But I love her clutch choice.

  24. Elle May 16, 2012 at 7:47 pm #

    Oooh I love this dress! Such a pretty colour scheme and she looks gorgeous!

  25. Rash May 16, 2012 at 7:40 pm #

    Trust Freida to wear something different and still work the hell out of it! Her make up is spot on as always and I loved the way the bright pink color contrasted the red carpet! She looks so fresh and bright and what a lovely smile 🙂

  26. gabis May 16, 2012 at 7:38 pm #

    From the ankles up I agree with you, FC. It’s one of her best looks ever. Hair and makeup are fantastic. Too bad I can’t stand silver platform sandals, otherwise I’d grant an A+.

  27. honeythief May 16, 2012 at 7:38 pm #

    just gorgeous

  28. Linda May 16, 2012 at 7:38 pm #

    Absolutely breathtaking, refreshing, gorgeous!!! My fav so far!

  29. dee May 16, 2012 at 7:37 pm #

    I love that this is so different and she looks pretty but I think this would look better on someone who could fill out the top more.

  30. Rashmi May 16, 2012 at 7:36 pm #

    Beautiful! Love the bodice of the dress and her hair and makeup.. she looks divine in the closeup shots.. Would have preferred a delicate sandal with the dress though!

  31. vicky May 16, 2012 at 7:35 pm #

    Now, this i LOVE!

  32. bm May 16, 2012 at 7:34 pm #

    Yes, this is one of her best look (alongside her first Oscar Christian Dior look, and Antonio Berardi last year at Immortal premiere.
    And what i love about her, is that everytime she hit red carpet, she always bring a new, fresh look. Her look never look the same, so far.

    • Erica May 16, 2012 at 7:50 pm #

      I agree: different red carpet, different look!

  33. dressaddict May 16, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    Yessss, fabulous!

  34. Malinda Jane May 16, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    I love this look! It’s so refreshing to see some colour. All of the blush/nude/black gowns we’ve been seeing need some of the fun this dress has.

  35. NooG May 16, 2012 at 7:31 pm #

    I really liked it until I got to the shoes and toenail polish – they don’t work at all for me.

    • smolls May 16, 2012 at 11:27 pm #

      Agreed – the shoes & toenail polish might be ruining this entire look + the bodice makes her look really short-waisted which isn’t flattering. And the peplum is a bit large on her small frame…but the shoes are killing me. 🙁

  36. Riley May 16, 2012 at 7:30 pm #

    Okay I LOVE this. I love everything about this unique off-kilter (but in the best way) gown.

    She accessorized perfectly. Her clutch is divine and her shoes are a great choice. Swoon swoon swoon.

    Michael Angel should make custom looks for her as his runway looks are’t Freida Friendly.

    Totally one of her best looks.

    • Linda May 16, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

      I agree with every word. The jewellery is especially perfect and gorgeous, the green earrings and the pink ring are so perfect (I looked at closeups on Getty).

  37. fashionmint May 16, 2012 at 7:30 pm #

    wonderful delight !

  38. Jacqu May 16, 2012 at 7:29 pm #

    The bustier is gorgeous! Though I’m not too sure about the draping of the skirt. May be if I come back to it or stare at it a bit more it’ll grow on me.

    …maybe not.

    • Jacqu May 16, 2012 at 7:30 pm #

      Meep, I meant bodice. (massive facepalm)

  39. Yeliz May 16, 2012 at 7:29 pm #

    Definitely on of Freida’s best looks. I love how the colors look against her skin tone, I love that she didn’t wore pumps, I love that she didn’t chose a boring clutch, I love her hair, I love her make-up.. Guess I love everything here.

  40. Paddy M May 16, 2012 at 7:29 pm #

    I like the dress, but she looks very short. On the other hand, Eva Longoria looked 5’10”+ in her Marchesa gown.

    • Erica May 16, 2012 at 7:49 pm #

      There’s something off/hunched about Freida’s posture here which makes her look patently short. Freida did look 5’10+ in Antonio Berardi at the Immortals premier last year, so we know she can work it.

      Love Freida’s unexpected, sweet/edgy look!

      • Iris May 16, 2012 at 8:24 pm #

        Agree — I love the dress and the way Freida looks, but wish the waist was more tightly cinched to give her more shape. Despite the peplum, she looks slightly boxy.

  41. nicole May 16, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    LOVE IT! its really original for her and thats what you want to see at cannes. i really like the accessories not sure about the platform on the shoe but i think she gets away with it as they compliment the dress pretty well.

    • bas May 16, 2012 at 10:20 pm #

      I totally agree.

  42. DSI May 16, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    Frieda looks lovely. And the gown is stunning. Very creative and refreshing look!
