Actor Freida Pinto’s scarlet red Chanel gown, with a

sari pallu

-like sash on one shoulder, which she wore at the Toronto premiere of her film,

Miral,

is being touted as “a half hearted attempt at going ‘Indian’” by

desi

fashion designers.



“This fusion with a narrow sash in place of

pallu

and a chunky brooch is looking horrible,” says designer Anupama Dayal. “Had she worn a

sari

instead of a gimmicky dress, she would have looked far more elegant,” says designer Alpana of the designer duo Alpana and Neeraj. “It is interesting to experiment with fusion dresses but maybe this look didn’t work for Freida,” says designer Gaurav Gupta.
