Freida PInto at the Miu Miu Resort 2015 Show

Posted on July 07, 2014

Okay, let’s give you something pretty after that last mess.

It seems like most of the time, when you see the Miu Miu name, it’s followed by pictures of some lady in a brightly colored getup with a ’70s hooker aesthetic. It’s nice to be reminded every now and then that they also make some fairly simple, pretty looks.

Not crazy about the belt, which looks like it belongs on a trenchcoat, but other than that, this dress is really cute. We probably wouldn’t have thought of black accessories, but we have to admit, they bring the chic level up. If she’d worn the trendy white or yellow shoes, this would have looked entirely different. We even like the touch of black leather in the watchband. Normally we’d probably want to see some sort of contrast or pop of color in the accessories in order to keep them all from being too matchy, but this looks elegant and understated to us.

      I think I’m bugged less by the belt itself and more where the belt is sitting, but this is an adorable little ensemble.

      • barbarienne

        I had myself a long think on that exact topic and decided that positioning it off to the side was a clever idea. It makes it a little odd, but in a creative (to me) way. It looks too deliberate to be accidental. I wouldn’t want that flappy end of the belt in front of her. The only other option would be no belt, or a different one, but I think this look benefits from a matching belt to cinch it in without visually cutting her in half.

      • Bridget Smith

        Agreed. Putting it right at the waist might make this dress a little weirdly gladiatorial, but this drop-waist positioning looks accidental, like they couldn’t cinch it tight enough and it fell down.

      • Sophie

        I like it, it reminds me of the 20s. It’s also rather in line with their 70s aesthetic, if not with the hooker part of it.

      I like everything about this. She gets a rousing Huzzah from me.

    • CPK1

      Love!

    • NMMagpie

      Never a fan of sidebelt, but she looks terrific.

    • Mr. J.

      Boy, does she look good.

    • altermyego

      She deserves a CABby, Cute As a Button award.

      • Boulderista

        Along with demonstrating the ability to walk gracefully across cobblestones in high heels – which is way more challenging than it looks.

        • Constant Reader

          I have trouble walking gracefully on cobblestones in flats!

      • livesarah

        Her smile just takes everything up a notch!

    • Kent Roby

      This dress is a simple, chic little palate cleanser, and Freida is her usual glowing self. Ahhhh.

    • MilaXX

      I like the dress, but I’m not crazy about the shoe. I think a strappy sandal would have gone better.

      • gabbilevy

        I suspect they’re not being well-served by flashing cameras. I can’t tell if they’re sequined or shiny texture, but they come off as looking dirty. Too bad, because they’re probably pretty in person.

        • barbarienne

          I sure hope they’re sequined, because otherwise they look to be black suede with powder accidentally spilled on them.

      • Constant Reader

        Agreed. I find myself wishing for something a little more summery-chic.

    • MissusBee

      It’s a great dress. You can see it working in the real world with different kinds of shoes or jackets as a kind of take-you-anywhere piece, and it’s not a fashiony style that will date. Sadly not for people with boobs though (like moi), otherwise I’d be scouring online for copies as we speak.

      • livesarah

        Yeah not a dress for an hourglass figure. I know when to just appreciate from afar (credit card breathes a sigh of relief).

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Okay, it’s my birthday tomorrow and THIS DRESS is all I want. It would also be nice if I could look like Freida Pinto for my birthday as well, but I’ll settle for the dress.

      • Introspective

        happy birthday! (i want it too!)

    • http://www.sincerelyjennamarie.com Jenna

      I want to go home and sew pop tabs on a dress in hopes of looking this cute.

      • Bridget Smith

        Coat them in glitter first, and you might be onto something!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      I approve of the use of the Legends of Zelda Triforce sprinkled throughout the skirt!

    • Alyssa

      This dress is adorable, and I want one.

    • formerlyAnon

      This is totally cute.

      It also shows how different celebrity life and peon life is. As a peon, I’d wear it with a flat summer sandal – strong, not delicate – and feel quite chic for a day of museums/shopping/lunch & errands.

      • demidaemon

        I see it more as multipurpose. Here, it is obviously dressed up for a public appearance, which, for us peons, could easily translate to a conference/work presentation look or going out to a fancy dinner, whereas your example makes it work as a casual dress for casual activities. It really emphasizes the good design of the dress (even if it is somewhat bust-unfriendly, as other commenters have stated).

    • SugarSnap108

      I love a dress with trinkets sprinkled all over it. It’s a first.

      She looks adorable. The only thing that bugs me about the belt is that it’s hiking up the right side of the skirt (I think).

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      It looks like an old-school gym slip, but I like it. I reckon Carey Mulligan would mug her for it, so Freida should keep an eye out.

      • Sophie

        Now I really want to see Carey Mulligan it it, I’m sure she’d look great. I’d let Freida get mugged.

      • marlie

        You’re right… the shape of the dress is the same as the tunics that we wore as our elementary school uniforms (and for gym in middle school).

    • Wink

      Love the outfit. Is her ‘messy’ hair intentional?

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      Summer chic!

    • Introspective

      i love this dress. i also imagine she must have made the slightest and most adorable jingling sound as she strode across the cobblestones…

    • Dino Bonačić

      I would love this dress to get itself a fun pair of shoes and ditch these 2007 princess-themed prom ones. Everything else I love in that Paris chic kinda way! Would love to see a black trench on top of it. :)

    • Danielle

      Presh, that frock is adorable.

    • James

      She looks adorable, love the dress. Ignoring those shoes.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Lovely look, although I wince at the thought of those heels encountering the spaces between the cobblestones!

    • Gatto Nero

      The dress is sweet, but I think a pewter clutch and a sandal would work better than the black bag and scary shiny pumps.

    • elemspbee

      pretty enough, but on the boring side.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      It’s the Freida effect. She has so much poise compared to some other actors her age (or twice her age, let’s be realz) that she makes almost everything look classy.

    • KT

      Very cute, agree that the belt isn’t great, but I don’t mind too much. I can’t quite tell what the deal is with those shoes, but I feel like she could do better. Also not into the weird hair. But still, pretty dress on a pretty lady.

    • Anna

      Love all of it – I mostly love how effortless she looks. So pretty and so fresh! I love Freida <3

    • Aidan B

      God, what I wouldn’t give for some Miu Miu in my closet. I’ll start with this, please.

    • Lisalady161

      How pretty and chic. Massively coveting this look.

    • Denise Rambo

      I wish she’d combed her hair before she pulled it back. It looks like she just rolled out of bed and didn’t touch it before she left the house.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      J’adore, want it for myself.

    • suzq

      She’s cute. I’m not that thrilled with the dress or the accessories. I can’t believe how CHARITABLE TLO is today.
      Have zombie bloggers taken over this website? Nah…I just saw your Taylor Swift post. ;)

    • alyce1213

      Beautiful. Love it, even the belt.

    • marlie

      So, so, so cute. I covet this dress. LOVE. And her makeup is simple and clean, but very pretty and event-appropriate.

    • kimmeister

      I’m not a fan of a dropped waist when the top is left so blousy. I think they work better when the bodice is fitted or straight. I also think the trinkets look like soda can tops. But, the dress is not offensive or vulgar, and her face looks great.

    • Cathy S

      Having just read about 1920s fashion, I’m digging the dropwaist on this dress.

    • demidaemon

      Wow. She looks adorable. I am pleasantly surprised.

    • jml27

      Love this!

    • quiltrx

      This is a pretty cute dress! She should show off those gams every chance she gets, too.

    • teensmom99

      Love the dress & wish she would have gone for a sandal.

    • AnneElliot

      LOVE this! But upon closer inspection, I sincerely hope those geegaws aren’t on the back of the dress, or it is NOT for sitting. Ouch.

    • MM4321

      Love this look! And I love the belt and the way it’s shifted over to the side.

    • crashtestbonnie

      I’ll take a half dozen of these, please.
