It is cool to repeat: Priyanka


Fashion Offender, the term used for celebrities who are seen in an outfit or with an apparel more than once has angered Priyanka Chopra, who has decided to campaign against this tagging. She has been promoting #itscooltorepeat via twitter, encouraging women to wear what they like, and repeat their fashion statement. Her stylist Ami Patel is said to have started the campaign and the duo have been uploading pictures of the actor in outfits she has worn before at events. Priyanka said in an interview, “Why should celebrities not be able to repeat or wear stuff they like? Why is it that when I wear my favourite outfit twice, it’s circled, zoomed in and runs with an unkind caption like ‘fashion offender’, or ‘she cannot afford it’. What bullshit! I can afford it, but maybe this is my favourite pair of jeans and I want to wear it three times. It’s cool to repeat outfits and I am going to do it.” Though she has just started voicing her opinion, Deepika has mentioned the same fact earlier, she said, “I like the outfits that I wear, so I don’t mind repeating them once in a while. In fact, I have a pair of sandals that I particularly like; they match with most things. And, why not? ” This was just the Indian celebrities who lashed out at the tags made by the fashion police. There have been instances when international artists too have been vocal in the past. Lady Gaga had said once, “I repeat my outfits all the time. I hate the fact that people believe that singers and actresses should not repeat clothes. I abhor that sentiment because I love all my clothes. As a woman who loves fashion, there are certain things in my closet that I can’t live without and I wear them over again and again because they make me feel a certain way. I just don’t view fashion in a disposable way”. So revolt is in the air and it looks like the rules of the fashion game will change soon.
