Uh oh. Something is up with Freida Pinto’s hair. The braided up-do and side bun just doesn’t work for Freida, who walked the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

If you ignore the hairstyle (but can you?) she looks elegant in her bright pink custom Gucci gown and Chopard jewelry. We love how she experiments with bright bold colours when most Hollywood celebrities stick to nudes or monochromatics. We’re a bit on the fence about the belt and matching shoes…one or the other would have been nice, but together it borders on being a bit too much.

Earlier in the day, Freida was spotted cavorting with L’Oreal Paris co-ambassador Sonam Kapoor, and we think she looked lovely in a green knee-length dress – very carefree, French and beautiful.
