Freida Pinto in cutout McQueen in Venice (with Clive!): awesome or tacky?

As a half-Indian girl, I can’t even tell you what these photos of Clive Owen and my Indian-girl-avatar Freida Pinto are doing to me. THEY ARE AWESOME. Freida is even looking at Clive like, “Damn. Okay, I get it. Act cool, girl. Just brush up against him a little bit.” The Clive Dong’s magic is hypnotizing poor Freida. And if I’m not mistaken, Clive looks like he might be preparing to write Freida a dirty letter. “From the Desk of Clive Owen: Would you like to bang me, darling Freida?” I know, I know – Clive is happily married, etc. But just give me this, okay? He might be into Indian girls. Please?

Anyway, these photos are from last night’s Jaeger LeCoultre Event at the Venice Film Festival. I think Clive reps the brand, and Freida was probably paid to be there too. Can you even imagine being PAID to stand next to Clive Owen with his arm draped around you? *dies*

As for Freida’s dress – it’s Alexander McQueen. I don’t know if it’s old McQueen (like, it was actually designed by McQueen?) or if it’s Sarah Burton for McQueen. My guess is that it’s Burton for McQueen – I’m guessing that because I really dislike the gown, and it doesn’t look like McQueen’s vision. It would have been more interesting if it was just a straight-forward gown with no cutouts, I think. The cutouts make it “unique” but they look rather déclassé in general.

    Freida is always gorgeous, but that dress is an abomination imo.

    <3 Clive Owen

    My exact thoughts.

    Beautiful girl. Horrible dress.

    Ahhhh Clive is smoking! Frieda looks campy to me here.

    Write to us Clive!!! We miss you!!! :)

    The cut-outs make her body look weird and boxy, and her body is neither of those things. I think it’s an interesting dress and it would be beautiful on the right person. On her, it’s unflattering. Beautiful girl though.

    Clive looks fantastic. Pssst, Frieda – over here girlfriend — Don’t wear wrist watches to formal events, ever.

    Someone designed a swimming suit and had second thoughts

    Yay! Clive’s eyes!

    Freida Pinto is SO beautiful-that face!!!
    But that dress is god-awful. She would have looked better in one of my housecoats/mumus ;)

    Beautiful girl. The dress is awful by itself but she makes it work.

    That dress is hideous.

    Clive reminds me of Huey Lewis (rock band singer from the 70s-80s!)

    The dress fails in all aspects, though I love long dresses for a change…cut it above the knee and the LeAnn would wear it…..good looking guy, she’s really pretty.

  13. j.eyre says:

    She is so incredibly beautiful.

  14. giddy says:

    Big sigh… Clive. Oh Clive. Yummy, yummy Clive. Where HAVE you been, darlin? So incredibly delicious in that navy blue tux! Just the right shade. Enhances those BIG blue peepers.

    You’re a naughty boy for staying away so long. Come back soon. Sigh.

    She is so pretty, but that dress is terrible.

    About Freida, she looks uncomfortable in some shots, but wouldn’t you be feeling a bit uneasy in these very public displays? I agree, the dress with cutouts makes her look unbalanced and too small on top. Maybe if her hair were loosely styled, it would balance out the look. Ladies seem to be in love with Clive..maybe I need to see more of his movies, because I don’t know what all the fuss is about.

    I wish she had a more romantic name to go with her gorgessity. And yes that dress is a complete & utter fail. She blows it so rarely but when she does that, she goes way past awful. Blegh. But her smile & hair (I like everything from the neck up) are just blazingly beautiful.

  18. nooooooo... says:

    I’d love to see that letter. With my name in it, of course…

    Agree the dress would be better sans cut-outs. Though it is hard for her to look bad!

    I don’t get thus fuss over this girls looks or acting. Saw her in Immortals and her acting was god-awful. Also, I don’t find her beautiful or gorgeous like people keep claiming. She is no Angelina Jolie or Scartlet Johansson thats for sure.
