Most Americans know Freida Pinto from her breakout role in Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millonaire." Now the 24-year-old model-turned-actress is one of Hollywood's hottest commodities, clamored over by designers and at least one muse-happy director. In this week's style profile, we examine some of Freida's hottest red carpet looks.
Freida turned heads at the Golden Globes with her seemingly effortless elegance — simple hair and makeup paired wiith a bold, yellow Christina Lacroix dress and plenty of gold accessories.
At a screening of "Slumdog," for AFI's Tribute to Danny Boyle, Freida again showed her penchant for bright colors – particularly metallics – paired with simple heels.
Freida opted for less color at the Critics' Choice Awards, but still kept her signature romantic style, modeling an assymetrical draped dress from Zac Posen.
Freida may be a new girl on the scene, but she knows what she likes. At the 20th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards, she chose yet another assymetrical look. (Notice a trend?) Like a true red carpet pro, Freida balanced this dramatic, Grecian inspired off-the-shoulder gown with a simple clutch and heels.
At the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Freida paired a regal-looking periwinkle Marchesa gown with a simple, pulled-back hairstyle. The train? A perfect detail for Hollywood's newest princess.
OK, so Freida doesn't always keep it simple. The Dolce & Gabbana fashion show was an opportunity for her to strut down the catwalk and show off an edgier style (and her modeling roots) in this frilly couture minidress.
Freida, who has described herself as "100 percent Indian," despite having a last name, arrived at a London screening of "Slumdog Millionaire" modeling a fashion inspired by her hometown of Mumbai.
Freida showed up yet another Zac Posen dress at the Directors Guild Award, proving she knows how to ramp up the glitz while keeping her ensembles simple and elegant.
The British Academy Film Awards gave Freida the chance to pull out all the stops in a ruffled floor-length strapless evening gown, and also to pose with the tabloids' favorite "are-they-or-aren't-they?" accessory, Dev Patel.
