Freida Pinto looked every inch a royalty during the 2014 Cannes Festival when she walked in the red carpet with her geranium silk fraile strapless gown by Oscar de la Renta with a sweetheart neckline plus gold-lame sequin and cord embroidery. The Indian actress is not usually seen gracing the red carpet but when she does, you can only expect a winning look from her.
I like the detailed embroideries of Freida’s gown. It looked oriental-ish and classy. There were some reports, though, that say that Indian brands were disappointed with Freida because she chose to wear an international brand in the red carpet as opposed to other Bollywood actresses like Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya who both wore Indian brands in the red carpet.
Sources say the actress actually did try to put together a look with desi designer and accessories for one of her photo sessions. She even spent days putting together her look. But maybe, the looks she tried on using Indian designers just didn’t look apt for the event, and thus, didn’t make it to the final cut. We don’t really know what made Freida change her mind but maybe in the next red carpet, she can make up to them.
But for now, can we just applaud her for being such a stunner in the red carpet? She definitely nailed it and I’d say she’s one of my favorites in the 2014 Cannes fashion!
Her elegant gown is just perfect for her pretty face.
Freida finished off her outfit for that event wearing a Jimmy Choo Abel pumps which is from the Spring 2014 Collection and features a mirrored rose gold leather, sleek pointed toe and 100mm heel.
If you’re fancying Freida’s shoes, you can get it at Nordstrom in shades of red, black, nude, and navy.
