Freida Pinto gave all the Hollywood stars a run for their couture money at the Cannes opening ceremony.
The Immortals actress took everyone by surprise when she stepped on the red carpet on Wednesday in a custom Michael Angel gown complete with bejeweled bodice and a thigh-high slit.
Freida finished off her flawless French Riviera look with silver Louis Vuitton sandals and a clutch that matched her gown perfectly.

When Amanda Seyfried promoted her new film In Time in Madrid, she went with this little number.
Designed by Michael Angel, she looks like she slipped into an abstract painting.
No visible jewelry but the brown shoes were definitely the right ones to go with for this dress.
Amanda has been busy promoting this new film with Justin Timberlake. Just a couple of days ago, they were dazzling crowds in the UK!

Designer Michael Angel is setting the record straight on Gwen Stefani's amfAR Gala gown.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Angel said the reports of Gwen not designing the dress are completely false!
The statement read:
"Earlier this week a former employee from my camp spoke to the press without having full knowledge of the collaboration between Gwen Stefani, L.A.M.B., and me. I strongly want to reassure everyone that the dress was designed by Gwen Stefani for L.A.M.B. to wear and be auctioned off at the amfAR gala. I'm disappointed that the focus has shifted away from what Gwen and I originally intended, which was to create a custom outfit for a great cause. We both were thrilled with the outcome and enjoyed the process. I have nothing but respect for her and look forward to working with her on more projects in the future. I can assure you that this is my only comment on this matter and any other quotations or statements written on my behalf are false."
And there you have it.

You know that gorgeous L.A.M.B. gown Gwen Stefani designed and wore to the amfAR Gala last week? Turns out she had nothing to do with it.
The real designer behind the gown is Michael Angel and needless to say he's pretty peeved about not getting credit since he "designed the dress specifically for Gwen".
To add insult to injury, Angel's creation was auctioned off that night and billed as "a creation of her own, by L.A.M.B.".
At the end of the night not Gwen's dress sold for $125,000 with the proceeds benefiting AIDS research. So really, he shouldn't be THAT mad about this whole situation. That's a lot of money going to a great cause!
