Deepika Padukone is known for being one of Bollywood’s biggest style icons and indeed, the world’s too. Whether it’s owning a red carpet event or turning heads with her airport appearances, it’s safe to say the Padmaavat star is effortless, chic and glamourous. And let’s not even discuss how amazing she looked at Festival de Cannes this year!
On the other hand, another star we can’t discount is our very own Mahira Khan. The queen of understated elegance gives us all the right feels to take style inspo from.
Whether it’s for her A-list outings or her Michael Cinco gown that will go down in history, Mahira is a true style star. Last year, we all remember how she made Pakistan proud at her French Riviera debut in that Menahel and Mehreen sari.
Now, the pair went head-to-head sporting the same Zara dress on two different occasions. The fashion police on Instagram is putting forth its analysis on who wore it better.
Deepika was first spotted in the Zara creation for an event in Mumbai back in 2017. She teamed this scarlet, jacquard printed dress with fuchsia pink parallel pants. With midi rings and three-tier loop earrings, Deepika finished off her look with pink pointed heels. Pulling her tresses back into a ponytail, a hairstyle she aces quite often, Deepika complimented the overall look with maroon lips, long lashes and on-fleek highlighter.
Recently, Mahira was spotted in the same ensemble from the mainstream Spanish brand for the promotions for her next film Superstar. Rocking the bell sleeve dress with a fitted waist, the star paired her look with cobalt blue Manolo Blahnik strappy sandals. That dewy sheen we all lust over, tinted cheeks and soft pink lips provided for a pretty yet fresh look. She kept it simple with minimal accessories and we have to love that about her.
Who wore it better? We have to give Mahira this one. While Deepika can do no wrong, Mahira toned down the look perfectly. But it really comes down to preference, as both these stars have their own edge we all love.
