Airport Diary: Deepika Padukone off to New York for Met Gala in denim


For the third time in a row, Deepika Padukone jetted off to New York to attend the Met Gala 2019. The actress was spotted in denim at the Mumbai airport flaunting million dollar smile.

Deepika Padukone first appeared at the Met Ball was in 2017 during the release of her first Hollywood flick, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, opposite Win Diesel. She looked ravishing in a slip-dress by Tommy Hilfiger along with a flower crown but the diva also received flak.

The ‘Padmaavat’ received a cold response for her Met Gala appearance, but she took the negative comments in a positive way and says it is a collective work of a team.

"I think its all collective effort, its a teamwork. Like, how we work in films as a team, its the same.

"Sometimes you might like what I wear and sometimes you might not like what I wear. And thats totally OK. I am not dressing for you my (reporter) love, I am dressing for myself. So, as long as I am having fun nothing else matters," says Deepika.

The actress believes that attending the Met Gala event holds more importance than the clothes.

"I have always looked at things as opportunities and what you make of those opportunities. I am sure for Priyanka and me, the opportunity is not about what we are wearing but the privilege of being there at such a big event," she says.

Deepika says the intention is to always have fun irrespective of what you are wearing and what not.

"The only time I would truly be concerned would be when my mother or my girlfriends give me flak for something I wore thats the time I will allow any comment to enter my life," she adds.

The Met gala 2018 appearance of Deepika Padukone was hard to give a miss. The diva slayed in a sultry red backless gown designed by Prabal Gurung with a thigh-high slit. She chose for minimal jewellery, just a pair of diamond danglers with red matching peep toes. The hairstyle of the ‘Padmaavat’ actress was a stunner. She was teamed with red lipstick.

The theme of this year is Camp: Notes on Fashion and we can't wait to see our divas appearing on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York.
