The theme for this year’s Met Gala was ‘Camp: Notes on fashion’. Priyanka literally turned heads in a Dior gown — a feather and thigh-high slit, paired with embellished gloves and stockings. But, it’s her dramatic make-up that has got everyone talking — afro-curls topped with a caged crown of sorts. Deepika opted for Zac Posen’s metallic pink lurex jacquard gown embellished with 3D printed pieces meant to resemble embroidery. Her look for the day made her fans on social media compare her to a Barbie doll. New face at this elite gathering, philanthropist Natasha Poonawalla stood out in an icy blue Peter Dundas gown that came with a crystal embellished mini-dress worn with a detachable draped skirt. Isha Ambani looked chic in a pale violet ballgown by designer Prabal Gurung. The 27-year-old channelled her inner Disney princess in a custom creation with hand-embroidered crystals and ostrich feathers. She completed her look with loose curls and some stunning pieces of jewellery.
Priyanka’s dress sparks meme fest on social media
The actress might have matched the theme of Met Gala, but the actress’ shiny outfit with an exaggerated hairdo didn’t impress social media users who had a field day trolling her. Many mocked her hairstyle and outfit. Several images of her dramatic look and bold make-up gave meme mongers enough fodder to get creative — Priyanka’s hair getting merged with Veerappan’s beard, birds sitting in her crown and the ‘before and after’ picture became a hit instantly.
