Her rise is nothing short of meteoric.
Not so long ago, the name Freida Pinto wouldn't ring a bell. Today, the Slumdog Millionaire beauty is talk-of-the-town and red carpet toast.
Unlike her unembellished Latika in Danny Boyle's highly-acclaimed romance drama, the lady from Mumbai has consistently impressed with her fashion choices. The film's winning streak, at practically each and every awards ceremony it has been nominated, leads one to believe the forthcoming Oscars won't be an exception.
Similarly, if her past performance is any indication, the fashionista in Freida is bound to floor us with her blend of glamour and grace at the 81st Academy Awards due to take place on February 22.
Meanwhile, here's a look at the Slumdog hottie in her red carpet best.

Deep tone or pastels, Freida slips into the skin of her designer clothes with awe-inspiring perfection. The actress looks every bit of a bubblegum diva in her pink 'n' pretty avatar.
