Freida Pinto, “Worth It”-------
Rumors swirled in Milan during the Fall shows that Freida Pinto was being courted by Estée Lauder, but it looks like a rival company has swooped in and claimed the Indian beauty for its own. L’Oréal Paris has just announced that Pinto and Lost‘s Evangeline Lily will join Elizabeth Banks as the newest poster girls for the French brand. When we first reported on the beauty industry’s interest in Pinto, we were on the fence as to whether or not her post-Slumdog insta-fame was a bit premature. Now, with her beauty icon status confirmed, we’re eager to see how those acting chops hold up. She’s currently shooting a movie with Julian Schnabel and will be spending plenty of time with Woody Allen when production on his next film begins this summer. Thoughts on her trajectory thus far?
