Freida Pinto In Anita Dongre – ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’ Mumbai Premiere

Freida Pinto joined her co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan on the red carpet in Mumbai, India, for the ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’ premiere on Sunday (November 25).

Unlike Kareena, Freida opted to go traditional wearing a Anita Dongre saree paired with matching sleeveless blouse.

I’m not well-versed in Bollywood fashion, but I did find the Amrapali jewelry a tad overkill here.

I can live with the earrings, but with all that rich embroidery, the necklace was too much.

    As per Indian fashion the accessories are not over kill but that sari is boring…. especially for a premiere.

    IDK, Freida still looks a tad uncomfortable in this ensemble. I would have gladly accepted this otherwise…

    She brings a lot of pizzas to other outfits generally speaking.

    I’ve heard Indian women traditionally “wear their wealth.” She looks lovely 🙂

    I wish she went for a sari in a vibrant colour but she looks lovely.

    Follow Sabyasachi on IG, Catherine. He’s one of India’s most celebrated designers and I think you would enjoy his collections. I was hoping for coverage here for Deepika’s nuptials, but there’s still time for Priyanka’s upcoming wedding in December.

      Please message me when these events happen.

      Getty do not cover indian events, so I have to find permission to use images from elsewhere.

      I’m still trying to get the images from the lux golden rose awards

        Ok, I can’t wait for your commentary!

        Hello Katherine! Deepika Padukone’s nuptials are over but her photos are available via her Instagram and twitter accounts freely and her husbands (Ranveer Singh, a big name actor) as well. You may be interested to cover his style for the wedding as it was very cool.

        And possibly if you want to cover Indian celebs like Priyanka- you can have a look at Highheelconfidential, they list Indian celeb fashion and have a staff photographer on hand who takes pics for them – maybe you can discuss a mutual tie up with them.

    Definitely not overkill, in Indian fashion, maximalism is king.

    • Jerusa Herrera November 27, 2018 at 5:48 pm #

      I thought so too.

      In this case, I prefer Iris Apfel’s mantra: “More is More and Less Is a Bore”

      Good to know. I should’ve guessed from the look book
