Vivid News 24: As the first Indian woman to do so, Deepika Padukone made history on Sunday when she unveiled the FIFA World Cup trophy. Deepika Padukone and former Spanish goalie Iker Casillas introduced the renowned Jules Rimet Trophy before the dramatic final between the Lionel Messi-led Argentina and Hugo Lloris-led France teams, which ultimately ended with Argentina’s win.
She proceeded to the field at the Lusail Stadium in Doha with Iker who was carrying the trophy. Social media soon became flooded with images and videos of Deepika from the championship, and many users focused on her attire.
While some online users applauded the star for representing the nation at one of the most prominent athletic events in the globe, others weren’t too fond of Deepika’s dress. The actress sported a striking brown jacket over a white shirt. She paired them with a black skirt and high-heeled boots.
Louis Vuitton was the designer of Deepika’s appearance. Some admirers claimed the actress, who serves as the brand’s ambassador, “deserved better” than the “atrocious” gown the company forced her to wear. The trophy had also been transported to the stadium inside a distinctive Louis Vuitton trunk.
“What did you all make my girl wear???, “In response to a Louis Vuitton Instagram picture showing Deepika and Iker clutching the award, a follower said. Another individual said, “Why are you treating her that way, Louis Vuitton?
You need to have provided her with more appropriate clothing. Why? Another remark said, “Stop dressing this gorgeous, stunning woman in such filth… she deserves better.” The question “Why is Deepika in a bag?” was also raised. That clothing is a hate crime, said another commenter.
Earlier this year, Louis Vuitton, a French luxury brand, announced on social media that Deepika had been selected as the company’s first-ever Indian brand ambassador. Ranveer Singh, her actor-husband, joined her in Qatar on Sunday for the championship match. On Instagram Stories, the actor shared a video of Deepika and him watching the game.
Additionally, he congratulated Deepika for displaying the trophy. Ranveer posted photos of Deepika revealing the prize on Instagram Stories along with the caption, “Bursting with pride. That’s my child. He said, “Just look her up. sparkling on the biggest stage in the world.
