Deepika Padukone seemed to be in no mood to experiment with her style, as she repeated basically the same style for the red gown she wore for Prabal Gaurang, with a thigh-high slit complimented with diamond and pearl earrings and a ring, that she had worn for Cannes last year. The actress was also criticized for not adhering to the theme of the Met Gala, which was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and Catholic imagination, since there was little to no resemblance to Christianity in Padukone’s dress. Prabal, however, has clarified that the dress was inspired with the red clothes that are worn by Cardinals of church.
Last year, Deepika had come to Met Gala in a white Tommy Hilfiger with a diamante headband, again missing the theme, which was avant garde. Priyanka Chopra, who wore a Ralph Lauren gown at the Met Gala, however, was praised for her style.
At Cannes last year, wore a Brandon Maxwell gown, complimented with a updo, diamond earrings, a wrist band. She was praised for her looks at the crossiant, but it seems that the style has become rote for the actress and the subtle suggestion of the theme in the dress went through the heads of most people on social media, as they were disappointed by the actress for not experimenting at the Met Gala, of all places. Yes, she looks beautiful, but even her fans were meh on the attire.
