Deepika Padukone, during the Met Gala event, let her fans in on the secret behind bearing the pain of wearing high heels for six to seven hours a day
New York: Deepika Padukone recently made her third appearance at the Met Gala 2019 and her look this year was all things dreamy. Deepika donned a Zac Posen custom metallic pink lurex Jacquard embellished gown with 400 three-dimensional embroidered pieces.
The actress transformed into a Barbie for her appearance at the event. The highlight was her long embellished layered train and Audrey Hepburn-inspired hairdo.
A video posted by Vogue shows how she got ready for the gala event. In the ‘behind the scenes’ video, Deepika shared that Ranveer Singh would have actually been perfect for the Met Gala’s theme. She said, “He has this crazy sense of dressing. I think he would actually be a perfect fit for tonight’s theme. I think he would do 100% justice to the theme, but I am representing him.”
Deepika also said that it is difficult to wear high heels for a long time so she applies a numbing cream on her feet so that she can't feel the pain. Yeah, that is a good tip for all the ladies, who love to wear heels, but can't sustain for long because of extreme pain on the heel.
