Freida Pinto - Freida Pinto Praises Chanel's Indian Influences

Freida Pinto loves the Indian influences in Chanel.

Although the Mumbai born actress often wears traditional saris for special occasions, she was thrilled to find that Karl Lagerfeld is hugely inspired by India when he designs for the French fashion house.

She told Britain's Grazia magazine: "To be honest saris are still what we choose when we dress up. But more and more Indian women are becoming fans of Chanel. I have worn it several times and often go for the Indian-influenced things.

"People don't often talk about the Indian motifs in Karl's collections, but I wore a sari-inspired dress in 2010 and feel that the theme is often there in his work."

Freida recently revealed she pays careful attention to her red carpet looks so she doesn't replicate outfits.

She said: "I try not to repeat a shade I've used before. Everything needs to be in sync and seem like one perfect piece, one perfect look. At the end of the day, it has to have the wow factor, so whatever I wear has to be 'wow'.

"My must-haves are a little black dress and a pair of simple earrings that can jazz up an entire outfit. I try to keep it simple and elegant."
