Met Gala 2016: When Tory Burch Dressed Freida Pinto. Behind the scenes of Freida Pinto’s final fitting for her computerized, Tory Burch-designed gown for the Costume Institute’s annual gala. There was a lot going on at Tory Burch‘s normally composed Flatiron showroom on Saturday morning.
It was the third and final fitting for the gown the actress Freida Pinto would wear to today’s Costume Institute gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and there was still a lot to get done. The three members of Burch’s design team tugged at the dress’s hem, waist, and shoulders. Pinto, meanwhile, pored over jewelry options spread out across a glass table. Burch herself, lips pursed, quietly took in the scene and offered feedback. Elsewhere, Pinto’s glam squad caucused over inspiration images on a cell phone screen. And, perhaps for the first time during a Met Gala fitting, an engineer was on call for the occasion…read more

Yesterday, Freida Pinto delivered a speech on rights and issues concerning girls and women, at the world’s first-ever summit for girls in Londo.
The summit, jointly organised by the government of United Kingdom and Unicef, is aimed at mobilising domestic and international efforts to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) within this generation.
Freida delivered the closing speech along with the Deputy Prime Minister of UK.
FinancialExpress.com — “Girls and women have the right to live free from violence and discrimination and achieve their potential, but some are being prevented from doing so by harmful practices such as FGM and CEFM, which are illegal in the UK. Girls affected by child marriage and FGM are among the most vulnerable in the world,” Freida said in a statement here. Freida said that she looks forward to discussing how ending child marriage and FGM can preserve a girl’s childhood, promote her education, and reduce her exposure to violence and abuse, thus allowing her to make choices about her own future and fulfill her potential in life.
“More than 125 million girls and women alive today have suffered some form of FGM in the 29 countries where the practice is concentrated. UNICEF estimates that globally, around one in three young women aged 20 to 24 were married before the age of 18. Around 23 million girls entered into marriage before they reached 15,” the 26-year-old actress said. Freida said that she was concerned about the incidents of FGM and CEFM in India as well.
“It maybe a small community of people that practise it but no matter how small the number is its a violation of human rights and those girls are significant and important to us. We are aware that child marriage is a common practise in some communities but we also need to be aware of the full extent of its damage caused to these young lives physical and psychological,” Freida said.
