Freida Pinto in Dubai: "I Wasn't Born with a Silver Spoon in My Mouth"
Looking gorgeous in top-to-toe Chanel as she posed for an exclusive shoot for Harper's Bazaar Arabia in Dubai, Freida Pinto talks about working hard to get where she is today
Freida Pinto rose from relative obscurity to become fashion's darling with her lead role in Slumdog Millionaire in 2008. Since then the self-proclaimed shoe addict has become fashion's favourite and has even scored high points with Karl Lagerfeld, who she describes in her interview with Harper's Bazaar Arabia, as "very calm before a show."
Clad in pieces from Chanel's Paris-Dallas Metiers d'Art collection, Freida's love affair with the fashion world continues to blossom, with her making an appearance at the Chanel 2014-2015 Cruise Collection showing in Dubai recently as well.
While Freida's sojourns on the red carpet have gotten her more than her fair share of publicity, what she isn't forthcoming about is her five-year relationship with her Slumdog Millionaire co-star Dev Patel. The 24-year-old Dev Patel and 29-year-old Freida have deftly kept their romance out of the paprazzi's inquisitive eye, with surprising aplomb.
With a career on the rise and professionalism intact, it's no wonder she continues to command attention for all the right reasons, from couture maestros à la Lagerfeld to bagging movies the likes of Knight of Cups alongside Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett.
