Deepika Padukone’s IIFA and Met Gala looks from this year

NEW DELHI: 

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Deepika wore a Gaurav Gupta ensemble to the IIFA Awards
  2. Deepika styled her outfit with a feathered train
  3. Some users thought it was a bit OTT for a Bollywood award show

Deepika Padukone has rocked several head-turning appearances at fashion galas this year, including last night’s IIFA Awards. But a section of the Internet is of the opinion that Deepika’s glammed-up ensemble with a long train was a bit OTT for a Bollywood award show and would have been a better fit at the Met Gala instead. Unimpressed netizens posted tweets like: “Deepika in Met Gala – I will wear the most boring piece of shit. Deepika in IIFA – My Met Gala dress order just arrived” while another user added: “Deepika got confused between IIFA and Met Gala.” Some even attempted to simplify the elements on Deepika’s ensemble by saying it’s a mix of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Kylie Jenner’s red carpet looks. Another tweet described Deepika’s ensemble as “purple mess.”

The dress that got the Internet talking about Met Gala is a purple off-shouldered bodycon with a feathered skirt from the studios of Gaurav Gupta. Deepika styled the ensemble with a mesh cape, which extended into a long train, also embellished with feathers. While netizens were busy with brutal fashion policing, guess who loved Deepika Padukone’s purple look? Ranveer Singh, of course. “I purple you,” Deepika described her look for the night when Ranveer commented: “Baby… you’re killing me.”
