While Priyanka Chopra’s longest trench coat made everyone take notice of her at the MET Gala, our leggy beauty Deepika Padukone’s outfit choice for the same event was criticized heavily.
Some even called Deepika in her white satin gown by Tommy Hilfiger looking like a bridesmaid!
The actress replying to the comments on her outfit said at a recent press conference, “I think the focus is too much on the clothes. The idea is to have fun. I am sure my team will come up with something amazing but the idea is to keep it fun.
The only time I will allow any sort of comment on my attire is when the flak comes from my mother or my girlfriends.”
On her sartorial choice she said, “It’s a collective decision. We work together to create a look. I am not dressing for you; I am dressing for myself, so it’s okay if you don’t like it.
I think all of us have a signature style, something that you are comfortable in. I have some things that I’m comfortable with… I like to put my hair up, I like red lips. I’m fortunate enough to work with the industry experts who help me find the balance between my comfort and the current trends.”
At the same event Deepika also spoke about how it’s racist on foreign media’s part for mistaking her for Priyanka Chopra. She said, “It's not just about me being offended. It's you all in this room who should be offended. It's not just ignorance, it's also racist.
