We love the way Bollywood divas perform as trendsetters, and we fanatically copy their fashion. But did you know our favorite Bollywood actresses follow Hollywood fashion? Some of the dresses worn by Bollywood stars are an exact copy of their Hollywood counterparts.
Bollywood celebrities are often seen as repeating outfits or taking inspiration from Hollywood. There is nothing with it, but when two actresses wear the same dress in separate public events, it often creates a wrong impression for the latter. Imagination is essential to stand out as a distinctive character in the entertainment industry.
We have caught some of the B-town beauties who seemed to have copied Hollywood fashion. Here are such instances where Bollywood actresses have been wearing precisely the same dress as some of the Hollywood stars.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kristin Chenoweth
Aishwarya stunned her fans with this starry appearance at Cannes – 2014, but Kristin Chenoweth was the one who first wore this Roberto Cavalli gown at Oscars and she looked no less. We love how this gown is complementing Ash’s curvy body and the loose curly hairdo is adding the oomph factor to her look.
Katrina Kaif and Alesha Dixon
Katrina looked drop-dead gorgeous when she debuted her appearance at Cannes-2015. In one of her looks, she sported a black and white ensemble by Milly. The same dress was earlier worn by model and singer Alesha Dixon during the auditions of Britain’s Got Talent.
Though Kat has copied the choice of clothes, we would still prefer Katrina’s look over Alesha’s because of the gorgeous styling.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Dita von Teese
Sonam Kapoor and Dita Von Teese wore the same dress, both at Cannes 2013, though on two different events! The Elie Saab dress looked equally elegant on both the beautiful ladies but if we have to choose one, we would go with Sonam’s look.
Deepika Padukone and Kylie Minogue
Deepika Padukone and Kylie Minogue wore the same Alexander McQueen jumpsuit. We did not like Deepika’s messy hairdo and hence Kylie Minogue is the winner in this fashion face-off.
Kangana Ranaut and Emma Stone
The Queen actress copied a sequin blue-green Burberry dress that Emma Stone had earlier been spotted in.
Malaika Arora and Paris Hilton
Malaika wore a monochromatic short dress that seemed to have been borrowed from Hilton’s fashion books.
Bipasha Basu and Gracie Otto and Manuela Velasco
Australian actress and produced Gracie Otto, Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu and Spanish actress Manuela Velasco all opted for the same Gucci ruffle gown, and in the same hue. Unlike the other two ladies, Bipasha paired her gown with a statement neckpiece and we loved her styling except for the unflattering fit.
Kangana Ranaut and Bar Rafaeli
Both Kangana and Bar wore the same Roberto Cavalli gown but it’s very difficult to say who wore it better because the two of them looked equally gorgeous in this electric outfit. Unlike Bar, Kangana opted to pair her dress with a silver clutch.
Priyanka Chopra and Naomi Harris
The Baywatch actress pulled off the same black dress that Harris had worn at a film premiere. Sadly, nothing can be hidden or forgotten in the age of the internet.
Anushka Sharma and Macarena Garcia
Anushka Sharma wore the same Roberto Cavalli dress as Macarena Garcia at the IIFA Awards event. The dress was so chicked in itself that it worked for both the looks. Anushka kept it simple while Macarena teamed it up with gold bangles and a black clutch.
Alia Bhatt and Jennifer Lopez
Alia Bhatt rocked a bright satin saffron Dior dress that JLo has pulled off earlier.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Kerry Washinton
Sonam Kapoor and Kerry Washington both chose to wear this beautiful Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2012 dress at different events. Sonam wore this white dress to the launch party of Ave 29 and Kerry wore it at the ABC Fall Preview with a black clutch. With the right choice of makeup and shoes, we love Sonam’s look over Kerry’s.
Katrina Kaif and Rita Ora
Kaif looked ravishing in a red Versace dress that Ora pulled off at the red carpet earlier. Who do you think looks better?
Ileana D’Cruz and Olga Kurylenko
Ileana D’Cruz wore the same striped Dior dress as Hollywood’s bond girl Olga Kurylenko. Both the looks were pretty similar except the choice of the earrings, Ileana wore black earrings while Olga wore golden ones. It is difficult to decide who wore it better so we are leaving this on you.
Shraddha Kapoor and Emmy Rossum
Shraddha looked like a fashion disaster when she wore a shimmery dress by Donna Karen at Star Guild Awards. The bold red lips helped a tad more to make her look worse. The same dress worn by Emmy Rossum at Met Gala looks so much better. Dramatic eyes and a nice bun hairdo added beauty to her look.
Disha Patani and Gigi Hadid
The black keyhole gown the leggy lass carried off to the Filmfare is hard to forget, but what’s surprising is that it is exactly the same gown that Hadid pulled off during the AMA presentation.
