Freida Pinto is the chestnut-haired stunner that plays Dev Patel’s love interest in the 2009 Academy Award winning Best Picture Slumdog Millionaire. Pinto is so gorgeous, she looks good in any color, but yellow was her character’s go-to hue in this film. Costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb spoke of the famous scarf in the final scene (pictured, below) to Entertainment Weekly, “I wanted to bookend the journey-to tie her childhood yellow dress to her final look.” The scarf (which is traditionally known as “Odhni” in India) is made from fabric that looks nearly identical to a beaded top Pinto wears in an earlier scene, so we wanted to feature both looks. While wearing these outfits, Pinto’s character is attempting to reunite with her one true love, and without spoiling the ending, it’s one of the most romantic movie scenes I’ve ever seen. ❤
