Frieda Pinto takes front row seats at Channel?Ready-to-Wear Autumn/Winter 2009 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week at Grand Palais with the likes of Kate Moss,?Claudia Schiffer etc. Luck is surely on her side.
I was completely flattered when I read some comments about Frieda on some of the websites. There is a completely opposite view of what I and some of my fellow readers would have. I have quoted some comments here which shows the support for Freida in the international community.
Amanda: She is beautiful. But she’s really starting to get on my nerves -through no fault of her own. I just hate how much of a big deal everyone is making of her given that her part in Slumdog was really quite tiny, and required no acting skills at all. I’d rather really talented newcomers with full acting CVs get all the press, rather than just the pretty one
Catherine: She looks pretty. And she’s having fun. And i am first
Some even went on to complement her as equal to Jessica Alba (more…)
Frieda Pinto, the Slum Dog Millionaire Star (or shall I say crew) is having the luck in her strides. After being on the red carpet at Oscars, chosen by legendary film maker Woody Allen’s yet untitled movie and now, touted as the latest fashion icon by mag Vogue, being the face of the cosmetic major Estee Lauder; she is certainly benefiting the most amongst all.
The News has it that She is being roped in as the face of Estee Lauder. What more one could ask for?
What has the Congress and Slumdog Millionaire in common?
Absolutely nothing. But that did not stop Congress from claiming their effort in Slumdog Millionaire. Why do you do cheap politics? Is Congress so weak that it can’t even claim its own doing rather than claiming in some one else’s achievement?
It is utter disappointment. Some little support I had for congress has vanished with this act.
