Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone’s looks at the 2018 Met Gala attracted contrasting reactions from fans on social media. While Priyanka’s headgear-enhanced look went down well with Twitter’s fashion police, Deepika’s striking but inconsistent with the theme gown was criticised.
Priyanka opted for a wine red strapless Ralph Lauren gown with a billowing train paired with an embellished gold chain headdress reminiscent of a medieval knight. She completed her look with subtle make-up and maroon lips.
Deepika, who made her debut at the Met Gala last year, sported a red draped gown with a thigh high slit. Her ensemble was designed by Prabal Gurung. She accessorised her look with towering red heels.
Here are some reactions:

To the right is Deepika Padukone, the woman who supposedly isn’t following the theme. pic.twitter.com/D5N8E05MPH— Doe (@doepikapadukone) May 7, 2018
