People are offering Justin Trudeau style tips after he ‘dresses up like a groom’ on India trip
‘Who is buying you clothes?’
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is on a week-long trip to India, and has been photographed wearing traditional Indian dress.
The Indian movie stars he met at one event opted for smart casual western dress – Aamir Khan wore dark mustard chinos and Shah Rukh Khan opted for a black suit.
But the PM went for an outfit some online said would be more appropriate for a wedding.
It’s not the fact that he’s wearing Indian dress that’s been rubbing people up the wrong way, it’s just pretty over the top by normal standards.
Indians themselves were advising him to rethink the wardrobe.
Mr Trudeau,I notice that you are wearing Maanyavar clothes everywhere in India. Please be informed that they are only worn at weddings and functions like Garba!— Sadhu Journalist (@lutyens_hyena) February 21, 2018
Maanyavar is an Indian clothing brand known for its party wear.
“Who is buying you clothes?” asked another, before dismissing his ornate sherwani coat.
Some thought he looked more like a man on his own wedding day than the prime minister at a function.
Even if Trudeau was an Indian groom at his wedding reception he’d look ridiculously overdressed. https://t.co/1tQWMOEEKt— Shivam Vij (@DilliDurAst) February 21, 2018
Trudeau is no stranger to Indian outfits, having worn them several times for Diwali events in his native Canada.
Some people were supportive of him donning Indian dress, and thought it was nice that he was making an effort.
Why shouldn’t Mr.justin Trudeau...do what he is doing?— vrundashankara (@vrundavs) February 22, 2018
Why can’t he dress up like how he wants too?
Why should everyone else opine about it?
He may be a leader..but he is an individual too!
His body ..his clothes..
His life...his wish...
& this is my wish I’m saying so!
Justin Trudeau in this outfit is giving me life https://t.co/FWrwgAS5VK— ananya (@banana_mural) February 20, 2018
But his dedication to the outfits made some Indians feel, well, a little lacking.
I'm sure Justin Trudeau has now donned traditional Indian dress more times than I have.— Ankit R. (@CereChro) February 22, 2018
