New Delhi: Film producers know that the best thing to do with a winning formula is to repeat it. Actress Deepika Padukone acted on this principle when she picked her outfit for the Oscars after party hosted by Vanity Fair in Los Angeles. Deepika, 31, took a blockbuster black and gold look from 2012 and wore an almost identical dress to the party, which is one of the most glam post-Oscars events and populated always by celebrities dressed in their Sunday best. The outfits look remarkably similar but are actually subtly different - look closely. Deepika wore the 2012 look to the Vogue Beauty Awards in Mumbai. Deepika Padukone is now increasingly spotted at big ticket international events courtesy her role in the Vin Diesel film xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage, which released in January. Here's a look at Deepika Padukone's 2017 dress vs her 2012 ensemble:
- Deepika wore the 2012 look to the Vogue Beauty Awards in Mumbai
- Deepika also attended the pre-Oscar party on Saturday
- She made her Hollywood debut with xXx 3
Repeating a dress or a look would be dismissed instantly as a fashion fail by style gurus. We rather like The Dimpled One for shopping in her own closet.
Deepika Padukone was spotted at an after party for the Golden Globes some weeks ago, wearing Ralph Lauren couture.
xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage was Deepika's Hollywood debut. She was cast opposite Vin Diesel as the lissome and lethal Serena Unger, a xXx unit operative. The film, co-starring Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev and Samuel L Jackson, opened with grand premieres in Mumbai, London and Mexico.
Also at the Oscars after party was Deepika's Bajirao Mastani co-star Priyanka Chopra, wearing black sequins by Michael Kors.
Priyanka was at the Oscars, before the party, in a silver Ralph and Russo dress that social media appears to think looks like kaju katli - yes, the mithai.
Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are both exploring Hollywood opportunities. Priyanka headlines US show Quantico and stars in the big screen adaptation of Baywatch. Deepika has now resumed filming her new Bollywood film Padmavati, co-starring Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
