    Fun and fresh! Wish more of her face was visible though. It IS a magazine cover, after all.

    i wish there was no stich seen on her thighs as it makes it looks so hard tried on.

    i love the cover, wish some soft curls out of bed hair

    Very lovely… I got a copy for me today….. even the insides are beautiful…. she looks very fresh… sure a “million dollar baby” as the ELLE team puts it…

      1. pegasusbaby at | | Reply

        While I agree about the weird dress completely, I still think she looks really pretty.

    hey MANGOgirl, those are not tights …those are her legs and its the joint on the dress tht has fallen on her bare legs that makes it look like tights. the inside pics confirm it! and as far as freida is concerned…She’s back!! im so glad they did this fun and fresh and classy photoshoot with her. she looks so natural! not that typical dead pan or one hitched eyebrow photoshoot that seems to be a trend these days

    Nice, although I like the picture in the link better.

    I do want to see her in Naeem Khan sometime, and not just in the established designer brands.

    her body looks distorted – don’t like

  12. Ashi at | | Reply

    Such a fun cover!

  13. krk at | | Reply

    This poze is really odd….seems like she was leaning on a table or something and then they took it away but she remained right there !

    LOVE her shoes !!

  14. sarah at | | Reply

    totally dig the shoes!!!! :)

    so much unnecessary photoshopping on the face..sighhh

    She hit it big and how! Gorgeous girl and gorgeous editorial.

    such fun!

  18. Nick at | | Reply

    why cover her face?

  19. Saniya at | | Reply

    I love her on the cover, she looks fabulous..but I just think her face is too a tad bit too photoshopped.

  20. Kahlu at | | Reply

    Not flattering in my opinion.

  21. Amber at | | Reply

    Vulgar, too much of skin show.

  22. PG at | | Reply

    I agree. Lovely pic, but some windblown bed hair would go better with all the movement in the fabric. It seems like the fabric is flowing but the hair is just laying limp around her head.

  23. pdaervo at | | Reply

    LOOVE IT! I could tell it was Frieda…

    That’s an insane angle to pose in. Ok Ms. Pinto, point.

  24. KS at | | Reply

    Plain simple layout.Nice. But when you use Frieda, you show the face :).

  25. clueless at | | Reply

    umm.. I dont know.. there is just something off with it. And the pose is so awkward. It is as if she’s leaning on something that was later photoshopped out.

  26. Carol at | | Reply

    What is there to like about this cover? The pose is ridiculous, the face is covered, the dress is ugly, the hair is limp, the shoes are too small and her toes are hanging over the front, her feet look huge, hands look weird, etc.

    Come on this is an awful cover. They have managed to make Freida look average and awkward.

  27. divi at | | Reply

    A failed attempt at making a fun and fresh cover mainly because of the extent of skin show. Also the post does not help either. Dislike!

  28. suchi at | | Reply

    sorry i dont get it. looks pretty wierd. like the shoes but that is about it. ice skating, luge, downhill skiing???

  29. Kiwi at | | Reply

    Love it, love it, love it… its a great cover.. so nice to see such a shoot after ages :) Frieda is back indeed

  30. zarine mohideen at | | Reply

    that pose is really awkward. Makes her hips jut out and look really weird..

    Love the shoes though

  31. simran at | | Reply

    I dont know, not liking it, something so off.. sure she has her elbows on a table and pshopped..

  32. hhc-addict at | | Reply

    Looove it. Fun and fresh. Frieda is back …. and the shoes are totally droolworthy!!

    I can’t get over how the crinkles in the fabric on the thighs looks like a bad case of stretch marks/cellulite. the pose looks awkward and forced, I don’t find anything natural about it.

    1. giselle at | | Reply

      and then if they’d photo-shopped those crinkles.. someone would have yelled photoshop..
      give it a break.
      its fresh n breezy and its not BOLLYWOOD..

  34. jaz at | | Reply

    me no likey!

  35. Pv at | | Reply

    Looks like ujjwala raut on the cover.

  36. sania chaudhri at | | Reply

    im so happy too see a bit of leg on freida shes young,do it while you can,she has impeccable style but older than her yrs,this is refreshing!

  37. everyone wants to be a crtic at | | Reply

    Its amazing how everyone on this site first complains of excessive photoshop on covers and then goes on to criticize the lack of photoshop on “crinkles on the thigh”. Lets admit it. We can never be HAPPY!! and for the few who are happy…good for you!! theres everything to be pleased about becuase this is not a plastic barbie who needs to stand in one particular way (that is aceptable on HHC) to pose for a cover. the cover in my opinion and i could get bashed for it, is just saying imperfections are cool too!! so the crinkled fabric, the awkward hand or pose or whatever it is we are complaining about is more candid than the pouting, dead pan dolls we see on covers. problem is the later is what we are conditioned to so we cant take change.

    I heart this coverE
    Experimental and pushing the boundaries of creativity.
    It’s so effortlessly stylish — I heart chanel.
    And it saves us from Bollywood reruns..

    while i totally understand that elle was trying to go for a fun cover, i don’t think they nailed it: her smile looks like the cat in alice in wonderland, her hair does her no favours, and the pose looks forceful.
    as for those who call it slutty, why? you can’t even see any cleavage, it’s not like she’s posing seductively with a come hither look. yeah, her legs are seen through that sheer fabric, but, hello, don’t you wear swimsuits? haven’t you seen other actresses on magazine covers wearing less than that?

    I think she looks beautiful although i hated the dress they put her in. I have criticized her look mercilessly before but she does look pretty here.
