Cannes 2012: Freida Pinto Has Surprised Me This Week

What I love about Cannes is that it always brings out the best in actresses for their red carpet appearances and this is most true so far for Freida Pinto. I have to admit I haven’t always been her biggest fan, yep I am probably the only one in the world not to have seen Slumdog Millionnaire, but her three looks so far at Cannes have been impressive, either she has a new stylist or I just haven’t been looking at her enough!!!

First up for the opening ceremony, Frieda choose a very different, I am some people won’t like it, but I just adore this gorgeous Michael Angel gown. The whole mix of the pastel pink, the peplum, and the exquisite embellishments of that multi-coloured crystallized bodice is just insane. There is a real sexiness about this dress that I haven’t seen from her before and I love it. I am also really loving her accessories – check out those Louis Vuitton heels and that lizard minaudiere embroidered with sequins – HOT!!!

From the red carpet at the premiere Freida decided to work a black Versace gown to the Opening Night Dinner, again working a thigh-high split, is this her new thing??? I love all the sequins and the sexy sheer neckline, but I am not sure about the long-sleeves, but her Barbie pink lips most certainly gets my vote.

But my favourite out of the three looks has to be the divine lime green Atelier Versace from the spring/summer 2012 collection, seriously sexy and she really did shine at the premiere of De Rouille et D’os. I just love the combination of the lace, the Swarovski crystal embellished skirt, the thigh-high split, and the double gold-lined sculptured detail on the hip looks divine on her.

I can’t be the only one that has been surprised by Freida at Cannes can I??? I really think she is working her assists with a new stylist pushing for sexy, and in true Angelina Jolie style she is working those thigh-high splits to perfection.

Which of the three looks is your favourite?
