There’s never been a greater time to be an American of South Asian descent. Between Aziz Ansari on the cover of this week’s New York Magazine and Hasan Minhaj’s speech for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, we’re thrilled to see South Asians in the American mainstream… and especially at the recent 2017 Met Gala! Here’s the scoop on who’s wearing who…
