Janhvi Kapoor trolled for wearing a dress that is allegedly copied from Balmain


The new cover of Janhvi Kapoor’s magazine for the January 2019 edition of Cosmopolitan India includes an uncharacteristic touch of color and an extra sheen in the form of an electric blue dress by the design brand based in Mumbai, Purple Paisley. While Janhvi’s bold look, complete with an unusual wig with a messy fringe, certainly marks a departure from Dhadak’s sweet and unapologetic style, the color and design of her bright dress is curiously similar to that of Balmain. Diet Sabya, the anonymous Instagram account that transmits the dirty clothes of the fashion industry, has accused Purple Paisley of stealing a dress from the fall 2018 collection of Balmain.
