Fug Girls: The Stylish Evolution of Freida Pinto

View Slideshow Avril Lavigne, LL Cool J, and Amanda Bynes are not safe.

Everyone loves an underdog, so the success of Slumdog Millionaire has been the warm-and-fuzzy story of the 2009 awards season. But as avid Hollywood-watchers (and weary self-accredited prosecutors of fashion crimes), we love Slumdog's meteoric rise for giving us Freida Pinto. Six months ago, we hadn't even heard of her; now she's dominating the industry's highest-stress period of endless junkets and red-carpet appearances. And instead of cracking under pressure and dropping trou at a nightclub — or orchestrating Kitson shopping sprees before “accidentally” releasing a sex tape — Pinto is delivering a master class on how to step into the spotlight with grace, an infectious smile, and a closet we'd like to raid almost all the time. Here's our take on Pinto's impressive string of hits and occasional semi-misses. Starlets of the world, please take note.
