Deepika Padukone made her debut on the international red-carpet as a presenter at the MTV European Music Awards.
Her olive-green Monisha Jaising and Shaleen Nathani dress was appreciated by Indian publications but the British tabloid Daily Mail dismissed it as a 'Bollywood Blunder'.
It said, "Bollywood blunder: Indian actress Deepika Padukone may be stunning but her swamp green bra-let and skirt combo did nothing for her sensational figure" and put her in the worst dressed section.
Here's a picture of the said "blunder":
What happens when Monisha Jaising and Shaleena Nathani team up to create a something special for this beauty? Absolute magic!! #MonishaJaisingXXXShaleenaNathaniCollab Amid a factory’s worth of military green metallic 3-D embellishments on a heavy duty bomber jacket, a fitted bodice and a trailing thigh high slit skirt, Deepika Padukone turned heads at the EMAs. "Military green is a functional and strong colour. It has a tough, almost androgynous appeal for all of those women warriors out there! Deepika is unstoppable, fit and fierce; making a perfect muse for my Artemisia Gown. I'm thrilled to collaboratively envision with Shaleena Nathani, and create this very special piece for Deepika Padukone for the EMAs" - Monisha Jaising #Stylefile #MTV #EMA #redcarpet #deepikapadukone #xxxthereturnofxandercage
Twitter was not really happy about the way Daily Mail treated our favourite Bollywood star. They, infact, widely appreciated the star's dressing sense.

Clearly Twitterati doesn't agree that Deepika's style needs to be elevated. While there hasn't been a lot of Twitter backlash about the Daily Mail article, it has only been less than 24 hours. The tabloid was past in the news also because of Deepika Padukone.
When she was spotted with Novak Djokovic, they labelled her as 'a female companion' and also referred to her as 'a leggy brunette'.

Deepika fans did not take it lightly. Twitter didn't either.
