This was Indian Bollywood beauty Deepika Padukone’s first official Hollywood red carpet, and we all had our eyes on her. Dressed in an edgy swamp green creation by Monisha Jaising, complemented with Valliyan jewellery and a pair of Balmain heels, the xXx: Return of Xander Cage actor looked amazing. So, when Daily Mail called her a Bollywood Blunder and slotted her in the list of worst dressed, we couldn’t help but cry out in protest.
The 30-year-old Bollywood diva attended the MTV EMA awards at Rotterdam this year and even co-presented the Best Video Award with fellow xXx actress Nina Dobrev to the Canadian artiste The Weeknd.
Padukone cut a fine figure in that thigh-high slit trail skirt, in military green and olive hues, which she teamed up with an embellished bodice and matching bomber jacket. Going by the style trend on the EMAs red carpet, it’s possible the said publication couldn’t appreciate a dress that wasn’t sheer. As designer Anju Modi said about her look, “they (international media) should understand the Indian sensibility. It is great that Deepika decided to wear an Indian designer”. But Padukone aside, there really were many fashion blunders that were made on the Dutch red carpet, and we’ve selected a few of them. Tell us if you agree (or even if you don’t!). (Source: AP,Reuters)
