Mindy Kaling walked the MET Gala in a Gaurav Gupta creation, which inevitably led to netizens drawing comparisons to Aishwarya Rai's Cannes 2022 look.

For Met Gala 2024, Mindy Kaling opted for a pink-hued structured gown from the ace designer, Gaurav Gupta's collection, described as “The Melting Flower of Time”. The entire ensemble featured wavy, structured layers that radiated pure grace. Gaurav mentioned, “It’s almost like the gown Mindy is wearing melts away in time, evoking a surreal journey through loops of infinity, as represented by our brand logo.” The custom-made gown fitted beautifully to Mindy and also had a long trail and floral patterns made with the same fabric at the back.

Mindy's outfit bore a striking resemblance to a dress worn by Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at Cannes in 2022.

Aishwarya wore Gaurav's custom-made queen pink sculpted creation on the third day of the Cannes Film Festival in 2022. The ensemble featured silver-embellished pleated details, a trailing bottom and a shell-like structure behind shoulders, symbolising Venus' rise from the scalloped shell.
