London, Aug 11 (IANS) Freida Pinto has a special place for fashion house Chanel because they believed in her when she had not become so famous.
The 26-year-old says Chanel was the only company to loan her clothes for red carpet events when she was beginning her career, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“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?’,” she said.
“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 said.
