Copycat syndrome directing fashion trends in Bollywood

(L-R) Kristin Chenoweth & Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Bollywood stars are forever in thrall to their counterparts in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles. To such an extent that one can often spot divas in the Indian page-3 circuit dressed exactly like some Hollywood celebrity of their choosing. Do we call this copycat syndrome? A special report by Guardian 20.

Kristin Chenoweth vs Aishwarya Rai Bachchan 

 Aishwarya Rai Bachchan won millions of hearts for her breathtaking look and gorgeous outfit at the Cannes Film Festival’s May 2014. However, the red carpet look which became the talk-of-the-town was apparently copied from the wardrobe of an English TV star Kristin Chenoweth who flaunted the same Roberto Cavalli gold off-shoulder outfit at red carpet Oscar award in March 2014.

Zoe Saldana vs DeepikaPadukone 

Deepika Padukone too flaunted a similar black sheer panelled gown as Dominican-American Actress Zoe Saldana.  The American actress wore it at the CFDA Fashion Awards 2011. Zoe Deepika Padukone though looked elegant and stunning in plunging paneled black dress at the 58th Idea Filmfare Awards 2013, but unfortunately, the dress was the copied one as spotted by paparazzi. 

Naomie Harris vs Priyanka Chopra 

The Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra was donning exactly the same dress which Naomie Harris had worn to a movie premiere. The actress though wore the same dress taking a year gap but copying outfit seems to be a risky business. But Chopra pulled off the dress in her own style and charm altogether. 

Kim Kardashian vs Kareena Kapoor

It seems like Kareena Kapoor Khan is a huge fan of Kim Kardashian, as the actress wore the same outfit at her book launch party in 2013. The same Tom Ford dress that Kim Kardashian had worn to a social gala was copied by Kapoor.  Kapoor looked beautiful in the black dress with golden belt which she teamed up with red lipstick adding a lot more elegance to her attire.
