When Designers Hijack Bollywood Fashion

Looking through some catwalk pictures, i couldn't help but think i had seen some of these looks somewhere and alas it struck me, that they resembled costumes from some of my fave bollywood movies

Amitabh Bachchan's Puss in Boots look for Jhoom Barabar Jhoom was all over Anna Sui's Autumn/Winter catwalk shows (2009)

Priyanka Chopra's Shredded leggings look in Love Story 2050 (2008) was seen at (can't remember which one) Autumn/Winter catwalk show (2009)
Hooray to Bollywood costumiers....... :0)

Oh, good one! :D I knew Bollywood was going to be the inspiration someday, rather than being simply inspired...

It'll be tough to beat Amitabh's look in JBJ, that's for sure. Talk about being best-in-class in *everything* one does! :)

Big B looks like he's a part of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Sometimes Bollywood tries too hard to look cool and fails

Lol at bollywood fan

@ Nicki i think in the '60's and 70's most costumes were top notch they were mostly horrible in the '90s but i think now, things are looking up again
