It's not very often that two actresses are caught wearing the same, or even similar, outfits. More often than not, if indeed such a situation arises, it ends up in anything but a huge laugh at the coincidence.
The last time two mainstream actresses were found wearing something similar was almost a year ago, on the Stardust Awards' red carpet. In case your memory doesn't serve, here's what happened when Jacqueline Fernandez and Sonam Kapoor ended up wearing similar outfits on the red carpet: Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez look like sisters on the Stardust Awards red carpet
Now, we have two different contenders for the same spot--Malaika Arora and Deepika Padukone.

Though attending different Diwali parties, these two were spotted wearing the exact same Banarasi silk. Only, Malaika was wearing it as a suit, while Deepika draped it as a saree.
The vibrant-red Raw Mango suit and saree were so similarly styled that both the lovely women ended up wearing a similar neckpiece to go with their outfits!

Nevertheless, Malaika and Deepika, both looked beautiful in their respective outfits, bringing on what was more important in the end--the festive cheer.
