“Poo did it better.”
A tweet by user @karanchaudharii has gone viral after it compared Camila Cabello’s Met Gala look to Kareena Kapoor in the hit film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
Camila wore a glittery purple crop top and skirt by Michael Kors and Shawn Mendes stood beside her in an open, black leather jacket.
The tweet quickly gained attention and has since amassed over 12k likes.
In the tweet, a photo of Camila and Shawn was placed next to a photo of Kareena Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan.
Kareena wears a glittery, halter-neck top with purple trousers and matching accessories.
The Havana singer’s outfit was also abundant in purple sequins.
The 24-year-old’s Met Gala look was said to have taken inspiration from 1920s-era flapper fashion with sequins and feathers.
Both of the outfits are sleeveless and have interesting cutouts.
Kareena’s top is cut from the side of her stomach whereas Camila’s top and skirt left a triangular cutout over her midriff.
Many Twitter users said:
“Poo did it better.”
The 2001 romance/musical film is often deemed as a classic Hindi film and the fan base remains strong.
Honestly if met attendees did wanna honor fashion among diaspora in the US, Hrithik & Kareena in KKKG would be a good choice https://t.co/tjoSXrOnoS

For many 90s kids, Pooja Sharma aka Poo was a major style icon while growing up.
It is clear that her fashion choices are still relevant, especially given the fact that many Gen-Z trends replicate those in the past.
Asymmetrical crop tops, leather skirts and bralettes were part of some of Poo’s signature looks throughout the movie.
Camila Cabello is not the first celebrity to be seen in an outfit that resembles Kareena’s Pooja.
In the track You Are My Sonia from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kareena wore a red outfit consisting of a sequined bralette with leather trousers.
Kylie Jenner was seen wearing a similar outfit in 2016.
While we can’t say whether Poo was the inspiration behind Kylie’s outfit, we know that Poo was setting fashion trends before anyone else.
Netizens focused on the women’s outfits as they bore the most resemblance.
Shawn wore a simple black leather jacket whereas Hrithik wears a sleeveless, grey jacket.
Camila and Shawn have been dating for over two years.
The couple made their Met Gala debut on September 13, 2021.
In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion was the theme of the 2021 Met Gala. This theme is expected to continue next year also.
The Met Gala is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the fundraising event was cancelled in 2020.
In 2021, it was pushed to September from its usual slot in May.
