While the length of PeeCee’s gown became the talk of the town, Dippy gave the impression of being simple & low-key with her backless gown.

When Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra made their debut at the red carpet event of Met Gala 2017, world celebrities looked on in awe, as Priyanka walked away with all the attention in the world media, for carrying off her long Ralph Lauren trench-coat gown, with tremendous poise and confidence, describing it as her “fashion moment”.  However, the actress was also criticised and the social media was inundated with jokes about the length of her gown.

In contrast, Deepika gave the impression of being simple and low-key with her backless white satin gown. Recently at an event held to announce her name as the latest brand ambassador of L’Oreal Paris, Deepika was asked whether she was apprehensive of living up to the expectations of fashion critics and whether such things stressed her. The actress said, “For me, the opportunity is not about what you are wearing but the privilege of being at an event like that.”

Deepika said, “My focus was to feel good in what I wear — some people may not have liked it and some others may have liked it, but the intention was to make the best of the event and enjoy it, whether it was the atmosphere and the people I met. Those are the memories that last.” But it was her next comment that was befitting, “The only time I would be truly concerned about what I wear is when my mother admonished me or my girl friend gave me flak for something I wore. I think that would be the only time I would allow any comment to affect me,” she said.

When asked about whether she considered it important to be a trend-setter, she said, “All of us have an inherent style and a signature look, something that we are comfortable with. There are experts who I work with and they are the ones who ensure that it is trendy. I don’t claim to know that but I am curious to learn and I am okay with it,” she said.

Deepika Padukone will be walking the red carpet at Cannes on the 17th and 18th of this month, when she will make her debut as L’Oreal’s latest brand ambassador.

The actress also hailed the success of Baahubali and spoke about it being an indicator of the “limitless possibilities” of cinema, which she too believed in, “That’s the best part of the medium. Whether it is us representing India globally or a Baahubali, which we understand is a regional film that’s breaking barriers — the possibilities are endless. That’s why Priyanka (referring to herself) does what she does because there is no limit to creativity,” she said.

She also said that there was a lot more she wanted to achieve in her career despite the fact that she had completed ten years in the industry, “It doesn’t feel like it’s been ten years already. Just when you think that everything is going great, there is something else that comes along and excites you. There’s no end to it and that’s what drives me,” she smiled.

She credited her parents for motivation and her achievements, “The motivation is to enjoy my work, do great work and let my parents know that I am in a happy space and it comes from the way they brought me up. That’s how I see my parents conduct themselves too,” she quipped.
