Janhvi Kapoor’s dramatic sequin dress called out for plagiarism by fashion's unofficial watchdog Diet Sabya
Ever since late Sridevi’s darling daughter Janhvi Kapoor entered the world of showbiz, she has been through her share of controversies. From receiving mixed reviews for her debut film Dhadak to getting brutally trolled for her Vogue cover, Janhvi and controversies are BFFs. Having said that, the newbie is already a fashion icon for millennials. Every time the actress is papped in the city, her style game has been quite impressive. Whether she's in casuals or Indian wear, this Kapoor knows exactly how to grab the limelight. But wait... on Monday, even as the nation was crushing over the sister duo Janhvi and Khushi's stylish appearance on Neha Dhupia's talk show, the unapologetic fashion critic, Diet Sabya had already made another observation.
India's most popular Instagram style police called out Janhvi Kapoor for plagiarism. In Janhvi’s recent shoot for Cosmopolitan India, the actress looked edgy with a bob wig and fringe, but it her sequined dress that was the trap. It seems to be a cut-copy-paste version. Yes, you heard that right! In a recent post shared by Diet Sabya, Janhvi is seen in an outfit by Purple Paisley, which looks a replica of luxury designer Balmain's blue sequined dress from their 2018 collection. While it may be a bit stretched to blame Janhvi for the look - it was ultimately the actress' face with the outfit.

The Dhadak babe surely looks sexy in the dress in question but one cannot deny the fact that the similarity between the two outfits is uncanny. Coincidence or copy cat? You tell us!
