Freida Pinto in Prada

Posted on April 11, 2012

We usually find ourselves in the position of Prada-defenders to a world (our readership) unwilling to recognize Miuccia’s unique brand of genius.



Freida Pinto attends the NYLON Magazine 13th Annivesary Celebration in Prada.

Don’t get us wrong; there’s a lot about this look we really like. Well, that’s not entirely true. There’s ONE thing we really like: that skirt, which is killer. We’re just not sold on the rest of the look. The proportions on that sweater are odd. We wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s unflattering, but it is kind of awkward-looking; especially that strip across the stomach. And we think that clutch borders on ugly. Then there’s the fact – and this is not Prada’s fault – that this look is matched to within an inch of its life, right down to the nail polish. That’s a lot of yellow, beige and blue for one look.

But since all of this is happening on Frieda Pinto, it’s kind of ridiculous to say she looks bad, exactly. If we were her gays, we’d tell her to ditch the top, purse, and nail color and find replacements that work with that skirt instead of trying to replicate it exactly. We’re sensing a need for something in the red family somewhere in this look.

Oh, and we hate the mermaid hair. But you probably knew that already.
