En route Canada for Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Freida Pinto’s baggage with all her high-fashion clothes got misplaced and later when found, the baggage got stuck at the Customs. Freida is at TIFF to promote her new movie – Trishna.
But Lady Pinto did not fret and fume like our typical Bollywood actresses (Like Shilpa Shetty when she lost her baggage in Miami for shooting of Dostana and shopped extravagantly at the Producer’s expense.) and sent off her entourage on a shopping spree. Instead Freida opened her suitcase that she probably carried as a hand-baggage and pulled out a poppy red knee-length dress by Sanchita Ajjampur that was custom-made for Freida.
When Freida Pinto walked in to the InStyle’s Toronto Film Festival Photo Studio, the fashionistas simply loved the Red Frock in which Freida sizzled. They went, “You look so lovely Frieda. So who you wearing?” And that’s when Freida narrated her story of baggage getting lost but luck being on her side, she had this pretty Sanchita Ajjampur number in her suitcase. InStyle published this anecdote and also gave a brief introduction of Sanchita Ajjampur – “Pinto’s look is one of a kind, but the India-based Ajjampur, who serves as a design consultant for Lanvin and Chloe, has her own line named Sanchita if you want to score a similar look. Visit SanchitaStore.com to see her latest designs.”
I remember Sanchita Ajjampur telling me about her consultancy work with LANVIN during the recent Mens Week but I didn’t know about her association with CHLOE. I checked with Sanchita and she said, “CHLOE bit is outdated. I designed for CHLOE but it was few years back.”
It was really fun watching the sexy Duchess, Kate Middleton and Prince William travel across US and Canada this past week, donning local costumery like kids at a multicultural parade at a politically correct elementary school, dressing as Cowboys and Kate looked truly amazing in Alexander McQueen on the red-carpet when she met the Hollywood Stars in Los Angeles.
But then I was totally flabbergasted when I came across this Canary yellow summer dress Kate Middleton upskirt picture where the winds played a blessed joke on the royals, for the benefit of gentleman oglers everywhere. Just a year ago, I can’t even imagine anybody getting excited over the prospect of leering up any British royal’s frock, but, oh, how times have changed. Just look at that little future queen’s bum. Bloody good show indeed. Enjoy.
P.S. Since we’re talking royal bums, at the same time as Duchess Catherine was flashing the bare bum in Canada, across the pond in the Old Country, little sister Pipa Middleton was showing a bit of the Middleton bottom muffins herself in a pair of skintight jeans.
