Although we have seen her plenty dressed up, way up, the last few weeks, it's nice to see Freida Pinto looking ravishing in a cute day dress. The color makes her dark complexion glow and it just goes to show you that she's a beauty with or without a ton of makeup and hair. But what really makes this outfit tick is the studded heels. Those things are haute!

Stylelist note: If you have a strapless dress that's a little too big, take queue from Freida and throw on a big black sash of a belt and some equally thick straps for a contemporary look. All it takes is a little sewing know how – very basic stuff – to turn a so-so dress into something incredible.
