Aishwarya Rai Bachchan “inspired” Zendaya’s 2024 Met Gala look? Here’s what we know

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan became a topic of discussion after this year’s Met Gala, even though the actress did not attend the elite fashion event. The theme of Met Gala 2024 was “Garden of Time” and Hollywood actress Zendaya impressed everyone with her multiple looks. One of her looks featured her in a gorgeous black dress and a hat with colorful flowers attached to it. Now, a video has gone viral on Reddit comparing her look with Aishwarya’s for Cannes 2022.

The now-viral video features Aishwarya’s black Dolce and Gabbana dress look for Cannes 2022 and compares it to Zendaya’s look by John Galliano for Givenchy. The video also compares Mindy Kaling’s Gaurav Gupta Met look with another Aishwarya Rai Cannes look. Watch it here:

Netizens did not like these comparisons and said that it is the designers and stylists who are responsible for the possible similarities and not the actresses. They also pointed out that Zendaya’s dress was taken from the archives and was not inspired by Aishwarya’s Cannes look.

One person wrote: “Aish didn’t design these. Another added: “No, it’s just a question of repetitiveness of designers.” » One person commented: “Zendaya’s look was out of the archives lol. » One person wrote, “Matlab kuch bhi…Zendaya’s looks were pulled from the couture archives to showcase Galliano’s work.” Tons of Western celebs are wearing Gaurav Gupta, including Cardi B.” Another added: “All of Gaurav Gupta’s sculptural dresses look like this and Aishwarya WASN’T the first to wear one in 2022.”


The 2024 Met Gala took place on Monday, May 6 to celebrate the Costume Institute’s new exhibition, “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.” The exhibition featured approximately 250 objects from the permanent collection, rarely seen in public before. Hollywood stars Zendaya, Bad Bunny, Jennifer Lopez and Chris Hemsworth co-chaired the event.

In recent years, Indian representation at this prestigious event has multiplied, with celebrities from the country and its diaspora making a statement with their impressive ensembles. While gala regulars Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone missed out this year due to their busy schedules, Alia Bhatt made the country proud in a pastel Sabyasachi saree. It also made fans want to see other big names like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Shraddha on the Met red carpet.

Although Aishwarya Rai Bachchan did not make an appearance at the Met Gala, she is a regular at the Cannes Film Festival and will return this year. Fans are excited to see what stunning looks she sports this year.
