Freida in Cosmopolitan: Decoded
In addition to wearing Blumarine and Christian Dior, which we had already covered, Freida also wears Jasmine Di Milo and Etro in the March issue of Cosmopolitan. The shoot in itself seems very disconnected with mood in the Etro and Di Milo pictures being very different from the Blumarine and the Dior pics.
Wish Cosmo had picked a central theme.
You can read the March issue of Cosmopolitan India here. You can also, if you have 3000+ dollars to spare, buy the Jasmine Di Milo dress from LuisViaRoma here.

can they please stop doing magazine covers and photoshoots with freida. she never looks as good in them, as she did on the red carpet.
Some Freida looks ill at ease in these pictures..
She’s also in Elle, styled by Erin Wasson- I knew some Freida shoot was missing here! pics are up on justjared. It’s classic Erin Wasson, too, and refreshing to see an Indian girl styled that way.
For what it’s worth, the Cosmo shoot actually looks MUCH better than the Vogue one- her skin looks gorgeous and glowy here, at least in the first two pics. If only it wasn’t for the weird Photoshop on the last two…
In Etro, it looks as though the top is wearing her instead of her wearing the top. Menon pulls it off much better on the runway.
The Dior and Blumarine dresses are both gorgeous on the models. Not so much on Freida. Her “sexy” look ruins it.
Think she looks okay in the Jasmine Di Milo one, nothing special. The picture would’ve looked much better if she had smiled instead. Her smile has to be her best feature.
Kind of agree with EM up there- the Etro top does work better on Lakshmi than Freida, but honestly anything’s better than that stiff, expressionless Photoshopped-to-the-max Vogue shoot this month. Not that this doesn’t have its share of photoshopping…and at least Cosmo could have let her smile properly! They’re not a high-fashion mag after all..
Loving Lakshmi on the ramp here!!!!
frieda is totally photo shopped..not natural at all
isn’t she afraid of being overexposed? i am so tired of her already. and i like her too. that’s saying something.
Wow! Is that model Lakshmi Menon..same Lakshmi Menon featured few days back. She looks Va va voom here.
As far as Frieda, something is off. I am not able to pinpoint it. Maybe my eyes are just tired of seeing her everywhere.
is it just me who sees the resemblance to eva longoria in the first pic?
Gah- I cant stomach Frieda in these mag shoots. She’s a natual beauty, and these pictures always look very unnatural.
That aside, check out Lakshmi Menon working it on the runway! Love her!
freida looks fine but i’m tired of seeing her.
Someone at Cosmo hates Freida and has unloaded their hate via Photoshop.. :)
oooo i love her in the Jasmine Di Milo Dress!!! she looks so glamorous! and i love her cheakbones! is that a belt she’s wearing around her waist?? LOVEEEEEEE!!!
i think it might be the eyebrows. this is the one magazine shoot she’s looked consistently blah in.
Bless her, she’s a looker but I am so tired of her already.
she’s jus looking ok…im actually fed upof seeing her on magazines…no offense but does she not have any work to do…uhhh sumthing called a movie
Girl Lakshmi is looking amazing! totally envious her her hair!!!
i am honestly bored with frieda i think beyond a point you must have something special for people to keep constantly looking at you. i dont think frieda has tht factor.
i am starting to feel the last time i enjoyed her look was in the sdm movie.
even the previous time when you compared her with lakshmi menon, lakshmi menon fared so much better than her. i wudnt know how anybody else might feel differently.
hahaha @ Sonia99 that’s what Im thinking here! Terrible Photoshop!! And this sexy-thing is SO not her. She should just be who she is…bubbly and vivacious lol
These pictures of Freida are terrible and I always love her look. It’s like they go out of their way to make her look bad in magazines.
Freida is a natural beauty. Put too much make-up in her and she looks weird. She is best when there is no photoshop and no harsh make-up! I have seen much better pics of her elsewhere!
lakshmi looks hawt hawt hawt. and that look of hers could kill :)
freidas head in the first pic looks like its weirdly stuck to her body and rotated a 180 degrees, and look at her comments. trying to be very hollywood-ish..
*yawn* ok whatever….
it proves only one thing,after seeing frida in 1000 designer clothing,world class stylists can turn a roadside stone into a flawless diamond,girls need to invest in stylists not bags!
@ Amara: I don’t agree. I do think Freida is beautiful, but I think that with the wrong makeup, and especially with all that photoshopping, they make her look bad.
Lakshmi wears the blouse so well!! Freida looks awful in Etro shot. She rocks the Jasmine de Milo outfit though.
“I do think Freida is beautiful” in a way like how we say every gal is beautiful?
