I love it when people who read my blog send me scoops (especially if the source happens to be the designer himself!) Raakesh Agarvwal posted on my Facebook Wall that the dress Apeksha Chopra wore to Indigo’s 12th Anniversary brunch was an exact replica of a dress from his Spring/Summer ’09 collection which has been worn by many celebrities in white, black, peach, orange and red. (It has in fact been one of his best sellers and owned by models like Pia & Binal Trivedi, Vipasha Agarwal, Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra (with sequins on it.) There’s even a jumpsuit version, but alas it does not come in the color Apeksha is wearing so I’m gonna have to call party foul. Sorry girlie, you and your copycat costume are so busted! Even the girls over at High Heel Confidential have caught this dress on camera, check it out.
P.S. I’m expecting this blog is going to spark some debate about how imitation is the best form of flattery and some may argue what’s wrong with tailoring yourself affordable luxury?, so lets hear it and thanks for the heads up Rakesh! xoxo
