The Grammys are over. But the internet isn’t done with as yet as several quarters are busy discussing the similarities between Priyanka Chopra’s Grammys outfit and the dress that Jennifer Lopez wore to the ceremony in 2000.
That the internet has an elephant’s memory is a well-established fact and on account of it, folks dissected and bisected Priyanka’s dress on Monday morning, comparing it to Jennifer’s outfit. But it is imperative to note that the only similarity between Priyanka and Jennifer’s dresses, in all honesty, is the plunging neckline. No other feature is even remotely alike.
Priyanka, for the Grammys 2020, opted for a floor-length embellished gown with tassels and a neckline that plunged beneath her navel. Jennifer’s Grammys dress, on the other hand, has been declared iconic after she wore it twenty years ago. It was a green Versace outfit with tropical prints and as mentioned earlier, a deep neckline.
The internet has already noticed this bit and isn’t quite pleased about the fact as pretty sarcastic comments flooded Twitter and Instagram. “Attempting to be JLo and failing miserably,” a user said on Instagram and several others added that they “somehow did not like it”.
Some fans were critical of Priyanka’s dress to begin with. For example, this comment: “When you have to wear curtains at last minute.” Or this “Please don’t wear anything in the name of fashion.”
I hate her dress so much ugh yikes Priyanka thought u could pull off a similar Jlo jungle dress?! https://t.co/y9Vnl0euAT

Priyanka Chopra copied Jennifer Lopez's iconic #Grammys dress but she does not have JLO's body to wear something like that. JLO looked like a goddess Priyanka looked vulgar. pic.twitter.com/ua4DYRsTHD
Priyanka Chopra was at the Grammys this year as husband Nick Jonas’ plus one. Jonas Brothers were nominated for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their song Sucker, losing to Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ Old Town Road.
While they didn’t take an award home, a good time was had by the Jonas Brothers and the ‘J-Sisters’ as Priyanka, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas (married to Joe and Kevin respectively). “So proud of this fam,” Priyanka captioned this Jonas-special post:
The Grammys were held in Los Angeles on Sunday evening (Monday morning for India). It was a big night for Billie Eilish, who won Record, Album and Song of the Year.
