Photos From 80s To Prove Bollywood Was Always Met Gala Ready

weird fashion choices by bollywood stars from the 90s

The Met Gala is regarded to be the most exclusive and renowned event in the world. It is one of the biggest fundraising nights in New York City. It is held in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art as a fundraiser for the Costume Institute. When editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland became a consultant for the Costume Institute in 1973, the Met Gala was met with significant changes and introduced annual themes for the balls. Today, the Met Gala is considered “the jewel in New York City’s social crown.”

The Met Gala is the most absurd homage to fashion and style. When it comes to this event, extravagance is an understatement. One thing has become glaringly evident after looking at the outfits at Met Gala every year that Bollywood of the 80s could easily be the inspiration for the Met Gala.

With lots of ‘maar-dhaar’, drama, and over-the-top acting, Hindi cinema in the 1980s was mostly masala entertainers. In the 80s, with their ‘adaas’ and style, the stunning heroines added beauty and grace to the mix and stole the hearts of millions of people. From the girl-next-door Neelam to the chulbuli Sridevi, here is the list of Bollywood heroines from the 80s that rule the hearts of millions and prove that Bollywood was always Met Gala ready.
