Pinto, Blanchett shimmer at premiere

Freida Pinto and Cate Blanchett stunned at the Dubai film festival wearing metallic evening gowns.

The actresses stepped out in the shimmering frocks as they attended a screening of Life of Pi.

Pinto chose a Grecian goddess dress by Ralph Lauren which featured a jewel-encrusted snake embellishment around the neck.

The Slumdog Millionaire star completed the look with a Ferragamo gold clutch and Charlotte Olympia heels.
