While Pinto made it safely to Canada to promote her new film Trishna, the wardrobe she planned to wear did not arrive with her. "All of my dresses are stuck in customs, so I had to pull something out of my suitcase," she explained. "Luckily I had this dress, which my friend Sanchita Ajjampur designed for me." Pinto's look is one of a kind, but the India-based Ajjampur, who serves as a design consultant for Lanvin and Chloe, has her own line named Sanchita if you want to score a similar look.
