Met Gala 2018: Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra sizzle in red

Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone were a vision in red at the 2018 Met Gala held in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” and both the Bollywood beauties turned heads in red hot sizzling numbers. Padukone chose a Prabal Gurung ensemble while Chopra chose a custom-made Ralph Lauren velvet cape gown with a gold-embroidered hood.

Talking about Padukone’s attire, Gurung told Vogue India that the actress has been a longtime friend and muse. “She embodies all of the ideals I respect in a woman—she is beautiful on the inside and out; intelligent, assured, poised, yet with a sense of levity and joy. I am honoured she is joining me on such a special evening,” the designer said.

Photos of both the actresses were shared on the Met’s official Twitter page as well as on the Instagram accounts of their respective designers.

Padukone’s loos this year is a far cry from her previous outing. Although she looked radiant in a white Tommy Hilfiger satin slip dress gown, the ensemble failed to impress critics.

On the other hand, Chopra made quite a fashion statement in a Ralph Lauren trench-coat gown with a massive train.
