Imitation is said to be the best form of flattery, and Deepika Padukone is no stranger to that when it comes to fashion. And we’re not really complaining. After all, if a dress is good, why ditch wearing it just because someone else has. Right?
Recently, Deepika looked drop-dead gorgeous in a Balmain x HM gold embellished dress with long sleeves at the premiere episode of the Bigg Boss 10. The metallic look is very in these days, with designers such as JJ Valaya showcasing it prominently in the Amazon India Fashion Week SS17 finale. But coming back to the HM dress that has generated a lot of interest… also because it just happens to be one that celebrity model Kylie Jenner wore last year at the the Balmain x HM Collection Launch event. The two, though, wore it fairly differently.
For Deepika, celebrity stylist Shaleen Nathani paired it with a pair of black Sergio Rossi knee-high boots – again one that Balmain x HM ambassador Kylie had worn at a show in New York last year. Giving out a very don’t-mess-with-me vibe, Deepika’s hair was pulled back into a sleek ponytail, and the minimal make-up with winged eyeliner and the matte lips were just perfect.

Kylie, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner family, had a more futuristic vibe to her look with centre-parted straight hair, copper smokey eyes and nude lips. The major difference in the two looks was also that Kylie cinched the dress at the waist with a blue-grey metallic belt. She also preferred thigh-high velvet boots for her look.
Once the duplication was outed online, fashion watchers online debated on who looked better, and no points for guessing that Deepika seems to be the favourite.
