Trudeaus Slammed for Going Overboard with Traditional Indian Outfits

Source: ca.style.yahoo.com

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family are on a week-long official trip to India, but it’s their outfits that have social media talking. The Trudeau family has been wearing traditional

Indian outfits throughout the week and posing for seemingly choreographed shots — and some are complaining that Canada’s “first family” is going too far with their attire.

On Wednesday, the family wore traditional Punjabi clothing as they offered prayers at Amritsar’s Golden Temple. Justin opted for a white kurta-pyjama and saffron-coloured fabric to cover his head, while Sophie wore a Punjabi suit as she prayed at the sanctum sanctorum. On Tuesday, Justin wore a traditional Indian Sherwani while chatting with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Sophie complemented her husband in an off-white saree.

“It’s a little over the top,” Economics Professor Vivek Dehejia told Global News. Social media also took issue with the attire.

“Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now?” one user tweeted. “Also FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood.”
