It is possibly the worst fashionable thing in the world when you turn up to a big event and see someone else wearing the same dress as you. It’s even worse when body shamers are quick to jump on the bandwagon of ‘Who Wore It Better?’
Dascha Polanco experienced this when she arrived at People En Espanol’s 50 Most Beautiful 2016 gala in the same dress as Venezuelan TV host Daniela Di Giacomo.
All seemed fine until days after the event when hosts of the Univision show were recapping the events of the gala and spoke about this dress incident, pitting the two ladies against each other asking, “who wore it better?”

It’s really tasteless to come across today that a host of @univision @elgordoylaflaca have used poor choices of words that have become offensive. They have created an environment in which it has ignited bullying across their platforms & has instigated against my weight due to the same dress being worn by one of their host and I last night. Interesting that they chose to glorify something so superficial like this, and not focus on the issues Latinos face in Hollywood. I don’t get how they allow their reporters to use profanity to make noise. #ismellgood #ieatbullies #OffensiveFoul #siempreyo #gordayto #estacurvasnuncasevanaenderezar
Polanco is not the only one who has criticised body shamers as she joins a whole host of other celebrities who have been speaking out about media pitting women against each other and policing women’s bodies.
