Freida on Elle India: (Un)Covered

Comment image 51

We’d have barely recognized Freida on this cover if not for the bolded name. Having said that, quite love this pic. It’s fun and flirty.

  1. 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…

  2. What is to like? You cant even see her face .. her pose is really weird .. her outfit is like a balck shear cloth .. okay ya maybe the footwear is alright

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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 !!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

    • 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..

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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..

  13. 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?

  14. 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.
