Bollywood Fashion Update: Double Fashion Assault on Sonam Kapoor via Priyanka Chopra and Cousin Parineeti!!!
WHO: Priyanka and Parineeti Chopra take on Fashion Icon Sonam Kapoor’s style
WHAT: Fashion Showdown
WHEN: June 9th
WHERE: 2012 IIFA Awards in Singapore
FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Sonam Kapoor’s debut on the international scene at last year’s Cannes Film Festival was a big deal for the Indian fashion circuit and perhaps even globally as many international designers such as Prabal Gurung, Victoria Beckham & Jean Paul Gaultier (whom she wore for her debut) began to open their eyes to the baby fashion darling. That said, stylists for both Parineeti & Priyanka Chopra must have known what the were doing when they decided to place both actresses in statements already made by Kapoor. Excuse me while I gasp, if no stylists were involved. I think Priyanka wearing the Dolce & Gabbana dress (previously worn by Kapoor at Cosmopolitan’s Fun & Fearless Female Awards) is actually forgivable because in the long run designers want their clothes to be worn by as many people as possible. It is her cousin Parineeti’s fashion faux pas that took the whole ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ thing to a whole other level. SHE IS WEARING A JATIN VARMA THAT LOOKS LIKE A PLAGIARISED KNOCK-OFF OF THE JEAN PAUL GAULTIER KAPOOR WORE AT CANNES…LAST YEAR. Should stars be caught wearing knock-offs? Should designers dressing stars be caught allegedly borrowing from other designers? It is one thing to do something like this on a regional level but at an award show that takes place at an international venue where the foreign press is invited? There are pictures on Getty for crying out loud!
