She wore a striking nude gown designed by Michael Kors that had everything but the kitchen sink with a long bottom section covered in feathers, sequins as well as some revealing side panels. The 29-year old Indian actress has got some great reviews for her fashion choices in recent months but some may have felt she had gone too far with tonight’s outfit.
Freida is best-known for her role as Latika in the 2008 international hit movie Slumdog Millionaire. This shot her into the spotlight and she was soon featuring in Best Dressed and Most Beautiful lists here in the UK as well as in her home country of India and around the world. Some of Freida’s choices of work since Slumdog Millionaire have not always proved popular back in India with her appearance in the Bruno Mars video for Gorilla getting her negative comments for stripping off her clothing.
The Cannes Film Festival has often featured a range of L’Oreal ambassadors and this year is no exception with Frieda being joined at the premiere by her fellow ambassadors Eva Longoria and Natasha Poly.
Eva Longoria’s fashion choice for tonight’s premiere seemed to divide opinions less than Freida’s with her long white fitted Gabriela Cadena gown getting the thumbs up from all of the assembled fashion critics.
Tonight’s movie premiere is one of the festival’s more controversial choices as the Bertrand Bonello directed film shows a side to the late fashion designer that has not been seen before. The movie shows how behind the scenes the designer’s life was ruled by drugs and casual sex and it’s subject matter has not unsurprisingly proved and unpopular one with the French fashion house he founded. In fact Bonello says that he was refused the rights to use any of the late designer’s YSL range of clothing in the film.
The new movie stars Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent with the role of his friend and muse Loulou de la Falaise played by French actress Léa Seydoux.
