The Mumbai-born actress and former model will join Liz Hurley and Gwyneth Paltrow in a deal reported to be worth £200,000.
Just two months ago, before Danny Boyle’s acclaimed film picked up a string of awards culminating in seven Baftas and eight Oscars, unknown Freida Pinto was struggling to get a job.
"Freida is hot property right now because ‘Slumdog’ has been a history maker of sorts," said Bollywood expert Taran Adarsh.
Estee Lauder has yet to comment on it, but apparently it’s a done deal.
More proof the America is ready for Asian faces.
