Actor Priyanka Chopra showed the world once again that she doesn’t take red carpets lightly. She turned up to the 2019 Met Gala, hosted by the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York, looking fly as ever. Her curly hair and stunning silver dress made it to several publications’ lists of best dressed celebs at the Met Gala but people back home are having none of it.
People took to Twitter and Instagram to share memes and jokes at Priyanka’s expense, rechristening her ‘Priyanka Ghosla’ and comparing her to Lasith Malinga. “Farmers have found a new SCAREcrow,” wrote one Twitter user. “What’s Missandei doing here with Petyr Baelish?,” commented another on a picture of Priyanka with her husband Nick Jonas. Others thought she looked like she has just been electrocuted or had a really harsh bike ride. “Why does Priyanka Chopra look like Viru Sahastrabudhhe?,” read one tweet.

Just so you know, the Met Gala has always been a grand fashion event where celebs could show off their quirkiest side. This year’s theme let them enjoy even greater freedom when it came to selecting their outfits for the night. The theme was Camp: Notes in Fashion, inspired by a seminal 1964 essay by Susan Sontag in which she describes the phenomenon as something that shall not be talked about: “To talk about Camp is therefore to betray it”. In simpler words, it’s all about being a little extra, a little over the top. “Camp is by nature subversive, confronting and challenging the status quo,” the Costume Institute’s head curator Andrew Bolton said Monday at a press event about the exhibition before the gala.
Not just Priyanka, several other celebs were also ‘meme-d’ online. Lady Gaga’s four outfit changes earned a few laughs, as did Jared Leto’s fake severed head and Katy Perry’s chandelier outfit. Check them out:
