WHO, WHAT, WHERE: Freida Pinto in a nude sequined Resort 2012 Valentino dress during the premiere of Trishna at the Toronto International Film Festival & Olivia Palermo in a Valentino Spring 2011 gold embroidered tulle dress at Montblanc "Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco" world premiere presentation in Monaco.
WHY: Sheer fabrics, tulle, and sparkles are right up my alley, so this hardly comes as a surprise; I think the dresses are beyond gorgeous and both Frieda and Olivia wore them exceptionally well. Besides the fact that they wore Valentino, the two looks are also quite similar in that they both went for a classy updo and chose to pair their dresses with equally striking accessories. While Freida added more embellishment to her look via her Jimmy Choo peep toes, Olivia threw some feathery details into the mix with her clutch and what appear to be the sandals she designed for Stuart Weitzman (Love them!). I get really amazed when people don't let an already opulent item of clothing intimidate them into keeping the rest of the look relatively low key. There is a certain element of surprise that comes with that, which I absolutely love.
This is exactly the reason why I picked Olivia and Freida over Keira Knightley for favorite look this week. Her Elie Saab Couture dress is stunning, her makeup is flawless, and I think she looks so adorable in her bob, but her shoes just ruin the look for me. The plain nude pumps are absolutely boring and oh so predictable! I think that she should have either picked pumps in a darker color or picked a nude pair with embellishments; something like this would have been nice!
