Priyanka Chopra, who recently made an appearance at the Grammy Awards, was the talk of the town because of her outfit. The actress donned on an ivory sequin-encrusted silk crêpe cady kimono by Ralph & Russo, with a neckline that went down until her navel.
Taking a subtle dig at her outfit, fashion designer Wendell Rodricks wrote on social media, “@priyankachopra nailed it at the Grammys 2020. Truly the bold and beautiful in this @ralphandrusso couture fringed gown where the neckline goes all the way from LA to Cuba. Love it ”
Jumping to Priyanka’s rescue was actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, who wrote a long post defending the actress’ right to wear what she likes. A part of her post read, “I think the fact that Priyanka is not trying to hide her belly with her clutch is what makes this pic so beautiful. Makes her the rockstar she is. Her confidence an inspiration to every woman. Women have been so enslaven by men’s opinion of how women should look this photograph of Priyanka to me at the world's most publicized event is the height of liberation (sic).”
She also left a message for men to see women as they are. “So dear men. We are not ur pre-pubescent hipless perverted fantasy or your teenage gay boy flat chested contortion. We are real women, we have breasts, we have fat, we have water retention and we rock and roll (sic).”
In response, Rodricks shared another post clarifying that his comment was on the outfit and not her body. “I just said the dress was wrong for her despite it being couture. It was more dress shaming than body shaming. Stop this sermon from high and read the post before you speak. There is an age to wear some clothes,” he wrote.
