Who Wore It Better: Hollywood or Bollywood?
Considering how careful stars are in not being seen in outfits worn by other celebrities, there have been quite a few instances when they have been. Our Bollywood actresses have often worn identical dresses as their Hollywood counterparts. But it’s not always the Hollywood star who wins. We bring you 10 same-dress scenarios and tell you who wears which better.
Deepika Padukone vs Kate Hudson
The winner: Kate Hudson
Deepika wore a black Alexander McQueen dress to this year’s Screen Awards, which was earlier seen on Kate Hudson at the Golden Globe Awards 2013. Though Kate’s dress had embellishments at the waist, Dippy preferred to keep it clean. She also modified the neckline to make it less plunging. However, what stood out for us was the way Kate wore this outfit with such ease!
Priyanka Chopra vs Naomie Harris
The winner: Priyanka Chopra
Another Alexander McQueen strapless gown was seen on Naomie and Piggy Chops. Naomie wore it to the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in 2013 and PC wore it to the Filmfare Awards a year later. Priyanka gets a thumbs-up for this one simply because it falls better on a body like hers. We also love the way she pinned her hair to the side. In contrast, Naomi’s look was ho-hum!
Sonam Kapoor vs Amy Adams
The winner: It’s a tie!
Our desi fashionista and the American Hustle actress were both seen in a Prabal Gurung lilac dress. Sonam wore it to a store launch in 2014 and Amy to the New York City premiere of Her in 2013. Full sleeves, slim-fit skirt and a low neckline—we thought this ensemble looked good on both of them. While Sonam sported curls, Amy was seen in a half updo hairstyle. It was Louboutin pumps for Sonam and peep-toe heels for Amy. All in all, both of them rocked their outfits in their own ways!
Kareena Kapoor Khan vs Kim Kardashian
The winner: Kareena Kapoor Khan
This Tom Ford belted dress was worn by Kareena to a book launch and Kim to Fashion’s Night Out 2012 in LA. Even though they were seen in the same dress, the looks they opted for were completely different. We loved Bebo’s striking red lips and pumps a tad more than Kim’s nude lips and strapped heels.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan vs Jennifer Hudson
The winner: Jennifer Hudson
2013′s Oscars saw Jennifer in a metallic blue Roberto Cavalli gown, shortly after which Aishwarya wore the same to Cannes’ Life Ball event. Being heavier on the bottoms, Ash looked slightly heftier than Jennifer. Moreover, that high slit in Jennifer’s dress just added to the ‘oomph’ factor, which is why she wins this one for us!
Kangana Ranaut vs Emma Stone
The winner: Kangana Ranaut
Kangana wore this Burberry green-and-navy-blue ensemble to a Women in Film and Television Association India (WIFT) event. The dress was earlier seen on Emma at the Vogue Fashion Fund awards. We loved the way Kangana did her hair in a twisted bun as opposed to Emma, who simply left it loose. We think this outfit looked much better on our very own ‘Queen’!
Alia Bhatt vs Jennifer Lopez
The winner: Jennifer Lopez
Both the actresses sported this Christian Dior outfit with a white knitted top and a coral hoop skirt last year. While JLo wore it to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Alia donned it to the Vogue Beauty Awards. Jennifer emerged as a clear winner here. Right from the hairstyle to the makeup, we loved everything about her look! Alia clearly wasn’t dressed for her age this time.
Malaika Arora Khan vs Paris Hilton
The winner: Paris Hilton
Okay, this is tough! Both Malaika and Paris looked sexy in this nude-and-black Alexander Wang corset dress. We love Malaika’s pumps, but we also love Paris’ necklace. Hard to choose but if there has to be a winner, it’s Paris for us only because of the way she accessorised her outfit.
Anushka Sharma vs Rosario Dawson
The winner: Rosario Dawson
Anushka was spotted in this sparkling one-shouldered Roberto Cavalli gown at the premiere of Jab Tak Hain Jaan. The same gown was earlier seen on Rosario Dawson at Cannes in 2011. We think the mermaid-like style worked well for both of them. Nude lips and dazzling earrings completed Anushka’s look, while the Rosario went for red lips and a chunky bracelet. We love the red on the blue gown. Thus, it’s Rosario for us!
Jacqueline Fernandez vs Elle Macpherson
The winner: Jacqueline Fernandez
Jacqueline and Elle rocked this gold Roberto Cavalli gown. Elle wore it to the Golden Globe Awards After Party in 2012 and Jackie sported it much later to this year’s IIFA Awards. Another tough choice to make, but our vote goes to Jacqueline because her neatly done hairstyle perfectly complements this sparkly outfit.
