She tied the knot dressed in blush pink and looked like a dream (also a lot like Anushka Sharma) but we let it go. You know who we are talking about. We didn’t read much into the stark similarity dismissing it as a case of Sabyasachi ‘uniform’ lehengas. Given that most of the designer’s red lehengas look alike, we thought it must be the same with the pink ones as well.
But then Neha Kakkar decided to leave us totally scratching our heads with a stark red lehenga and some very serious deja vu feels. With it’s red on red embroidery, flimsy veil, and statement jewels, the lehenga had Priyanka Chopra’s name written all over it and in this case, even the designers were different. While Sabyasachi was the brain behind Priyanka’s red bridal lehenga and it’s delicate veil, it was Falguni Shane Peacock who designed it for Neha Kakkar. And yet style-wise the two shared an uncanny similarity. And as much as we want to lay it on the singer, part of the responsibility also lies on the designers here.
And well, while one time might be a charm, when it happens twice it’s sort of too much. However, in Neha’s case, it happened thrice. In what looked like a mix of both Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra’s post-wedding looks, Neha had us gaping in disbelief as videos of her wearing a white Falguni Shane Peacock lehenga went viral.
Now, since Neha just got married, we were in a forgiving mood. We touched on it lightly and let it go. Well, that and the fact that, if you think about it, isn’t Neha just every other normal Indian girl who dreams of a big fat wedding and Anushka wala bridal lehenga? However, unlike us, the internet has surely not been in a forgiving mood and the netizens have been calling her out for the same. Neha’s wedding wardrobe is being compared to the music mashups that she often does and how she didn’t shy away from pulling the same at her wedding as well. Here’s what they have to say:
That said, it is amazing how no one is laying any fingers on the designers and stylists here who are, of course, as responsible as the one wearing these costumes. I mean, there are some of the biggest names in the fashion industry attached to Neha’s wedding looks, and not one person in the entire process could notice the similarities that most of her wedding outfits shared with other celebs?
Honestly, we had a hunch that she had it coming. However, to only call out Neha here and then to troll her for what she chose to wear at her wedding is a tad too much. Don’t you think?
