Freida Pinto loves Chanel ‘for believing in her from the very beginning’
Washington: Freida Pinto has revealed that she loves Chanel as they ‘believed’ in her from the very beginning when she was not famous.
The 26-year-old India-born actress also said the fashion house was the only company to loan her clothes for red carpet events when she was starting out in her career.
“I tell you why I like Chanel so much; when I started off, no one wanted to give me clothes to wear. Absolutely no one. All the labels said, ‘Who is she?’” Contactmusic quoted her as telling InStyle magazine.
“Modelling was not completely satisfying. But Chanel believed in me from the very beginning.
“For the very first red carpet I did at the Toronto Film Festival in 2008, they dressed me up in their very current season collection. It’s a massive brand, why would they invest in someone who is nobody,” she added.
