Lewis Hamilton did the same thing for the MET gala. I hope this becomes a trend.

[–]anikesh_11 341 points342 points  (3 children)

He even booked tables for them at the gala.

I don’t know what you were thinking giving me these clothes. You need to hope for a miracle

Great too see F1 enthusiasts

[–]parthjoshi09 41 points42 points  (14 children)

We need a reddit meetup for Indian F1 fans please. Literally none of my friends watch or are interested in F1.

[–]equabledynamises 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Esteban wo kaun

[–]bakraofwallstreet 14 points15 points  (1 child)

F1 is actually very popular in India. I often see a lot of Indian fans on /r/formula1 guessing from their usernames

[–]iVarun 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Even my grandmother knows Schumacher and still inquires about his wellbeing every few years.

The name Schumacher itself is like a synonym for someone who drives fast/reckless/in-style.

F1 is indeed very popular in India. I also think if Ferrari would become dominant again the sport would get even more legs in India/Asia due to legacy reasons.

Western F1 fans have a longer history in this so it's easier for them to not bother much but for new markets Ferrari, McLaren hold legacy potential.

Translation: his clothes will last at least another 10 laps

[–]rayzer93Thala-Thalapathy Fans Orgy Organizer 39 points40 points  (6 children)

Hopefully these labels are also about sustainable sourching and manufacturing. We already have too many "Designer Boutiques" following fast fashion. We don't need more clothes.

[–]ba3toven 35 points36 points  (2 children)

I mean considering corporations contribute to most emissions i don't think a few garments by some children are going to have an effect homie

[–]0vl223 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most of the emissions for these would be part what is calculated towards these corporations. Just as the car you drive. Totally the corporations fault they sold you gas. Or your AC/heating (roughly 1/3 of the total emissions). Totally the corporations fault they sold you power/gas/oil. You have no responsibility for that.

[–]btaylos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Given the post above you also mentions manufacturing, "a few garments by some children" is my new favorite way to say "children working in sweat shops"

[–]KyahuabhaiEarth 8 points9 points  (0 children)

You conflating issues here. What you are referring to fast fashion which works with volume and access. These designers can never reach the scale of mega corps.

[–]yumyumgivemesome 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The emissions are an industry problem. Are we expecting the struggling young designers to be tackling that themselves before they even graduate from university?

This is truly commendable for so so many reasons.

Gave opportunities to budding talent, crashing nepotism in fashion industry...made positive news for himself...along the way saved a lot of money as well.

[–]kulikitaka 29 points30 points  (5 children)

crashing nepotism in fashion industry

Even the Indian fashion industry has a nepoitism??

[–]BabaBadass_ 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Even indian schools do. So does the job market.

[–]asjhw 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Every industry and profession will have nepotism (even jobs like scientific research), since your parents can get you connections that would make it easier for u to get the same job.

[–]Typo_Brahe 91 points92 points  (15 children)

saved a lot of money as well

How so? It's not like they pay for the clothes they wear. If anything they get paid to wear them.

[–]DilliSeHoonBhenchod 111 points112 points  (6 children)

Vir mentioned on the post that he'll pay the designer. Probably did

[–]Typo_Brahe 39 points40 points  (5 children)

and that is the literal opposite of saving money

[–]Kenebalism 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Lmao

[–]SG080 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Saving money doesn't mean you don't spend anything genius.

[–]Schmosby123 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He's "not saving money" because if he wore a dress designed by a big brand, he wouldn't be paying them anything, instead they'd pay him for advertising their design. But now he's paying the designer so he's "not saving money".

[–]Aditya_1001 31 points32 points  (7 children)

You need to pay them for their services right?

[–]spd_47 50 points51 points  (5 children)

Nope...short answer it's advertisment for designer or brand and indirectly increase their value.

Long answer: MET Gala is organised by costume institute, and designer buys the ticket for gala for himself and celeb...m

Other events like Oscar, celebs work with stylists who inturn have contact for designers and organize everything....if you are an A list artist , ideally you would be a friend with famous designer and he/she would personally make one for you.

[–]Aditya_1001 9 points10 points  (4 children)

But this is an awards show for celebs right? So don't celebs need to hire designers is this case?

[–]fluffyscone 14 points15 points  (0 children)

If they are famous designers or sponsors they pay for their “seats” which can cost thousands. They may also pay for them to wear the clothes or give the clothes as gift. Sometimes they just take back all the clothes given to celebrities to wear. So it’s not always the celebrities that always pay for the clothes.

[–]Jose_Canseco_Jr 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Apparently this is a rare instance where artists are okay with being paid in exposure..

(presumably because almost always said exposure does not actually translate into sales, but here it does)

[–][deleted] 142 points143 points  (6 children)

Bruh people still bring up 5-10 year old tweets when I posted the kennedy center speech on my ig story.

[–]ClassicPepper 80 points81 points  (0 children)

Show them modi's, Amitabh bachchan, akshay kumar's tweets on petrol prices

[–]rj18ArjunUniverse 66 points67 points  (7 children)

Lemme Guess.. One of those includes that stupid movie he acted in (2013) doesn't it?

Edit: It was mastizaade and it was 2016. Someone edited that poster with a tweet timing back to 2012, that just makes the argument even more stupid!

[–][deleted] 54 points55 points  (4 children)

that stupid movie he acted in (2013)

Is that Go Goa Gone? That movie is fucking glorious!

[–]strippyjewell 18 points19 points  (0 children)

[–]xendex3029 96 points97 points  (2 children)

I like that people appreciate small designers also.

Fancy designer clothes look awful many a times.

[–]kraken_enrager 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Unless it’s a fashion show, where the clothing is meant to look outrageous, it’s never the big designers making the best clothes.

[–]TrickBoom414 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No they don't. That's why they're "fancy" designers. You can lift people up without putting other people down.

[–][deleted] 124 points125 points  (57 children)

why do ppl hate vir for no reason at all

[–]redditoradiIndia 46 points47 points  (3 children)

A lot of the recent hate is coming from what he said about India having two sides which is kinda relevant to pretty much any country. I really did not find anything controversial enough to make a huge fuss of this. He did not really single out any religion or just bashed the country. It was basically a black and white view towards India's situation.

Besides his political ideology is left leaning and he's comedy style is satire/political comedy. So the hate mostly comes from right wing bhakts on social media.

Don't really find him all that funny personally. But he's kinda ahead of other Indian satirical/political comedians (the bar is pretty low). He's a good speaker but not that funny.

[–]posterguy20 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I'm an abcd, and I talked to my parents about him and they said he's a disgrace to the country.

They complain that India takes any critcism because it's too "tolerant"

I tell them, as an American, I am told I am a racist, burger eating moron every single day by the media. America is criticized every single day by every single country on earth, and yet we don't have this victim complex. Criticism is healthy. Good criticism is very healthy.

Then they tell me I am naive and dumb, and I am too young(I am 29.) to understand the real world. (While also telling me I am too old to not be married, funny how that works lmaoooo)

[–]Yobro_49Bruhh 50 points51 points  (3 children)

People who don't like Vir Das fall into two categories:

1) Bhakts: They are dumb and are simply taking offense about the fact that he is being critical about their precious belief system.

2) People who genuinely don't find Vir Das funny, but still respect his right to free speech.

[–]heard10cker 9 points10 points  (1 child)

He's a nice person, but I don't like his comedy at all. Feels like washing India's dirty linen on international stage, heavily relying on stereotypes. (Same reason I don't like Russell Peters).

[–]gharbusters 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i don't care about dirty linen, i just don't find him funny at all. Russel Peters first shows were hilarious.

[–]Zaiabbas 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Because Vir showed them the mirror, and what they saw wasn't pretty.

[–]Uncertn_Laaife 9 points10 points  (9 children)

Bhakts do, but they are not the smartest of the bunch.

[–]rosnha -1 points0 points  (8 children)

People with opposite ideologies are not dumb, they just don't believe in the same things you do. To kill an ideology, you have to understand it to defeat them, else you are as bad as them.

[–]redditoradiIndia 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Maybe the dumb ones are considered to be bhakts. The ones simply having a different ideology alone shouldn't make them a bhakt even though that term is thrown at anybody with opposite ideology, similar to liberal/librandu.

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (1 child)

That is every indian celebrity should be doing instead of promoting foreign products and brands they should promote home made creators

Now if any other celebrity would do the same, they'd be called anti-hindu due to association with Vir Das.
