There are surprises. And then, there are shockers; perfect bombers that simply blow your universe into a gazillion particles of light. One of them dropped down on our beloved B-Town in 2014, when Priyanka Chopra sprouted her wings and transformed into the diva she was meant to be. “Style Tornado” is what the modern Cupids are conspiring to name her. From a career chart that could battle out NASA, we give you seven red carpet looks of our beloved Piggy Chops that have created some damn fine uproar:
Abu Dhabi Film Festival, 2014
Jaws dropped, tires squealed, breaths were stolen and the air sizzled incessantly when Priyanka walked in wearing a fresh off-the-runway, Pankaj and Nidhi spring number. A light-blue body hugging gown that did those curves justice, and came emblazoned with delicate pastel hued embroidery. A chic up-do, coral lips and Valliyan earrings summed up the diva look.
Gauri Nainika scored a tub full of love when Priyanka outshone in a cut-out black and white gown. A modern princess right up your alley, she amped it up with glossy black nails, a red pout and dazzle worthy diamonds. Let’s just say that we couldn’t get our eyes off her.
IIFA Awards, 2014
Monique Lhuillier and Priyanka Chopra do it again. Dang! How do you look so gracefully gorgeous in a nude, cherry blossom, floor length gown with shimmery sequins intricately embroidered? Maybe doing the smoky eyes is the secret. Or perhaps the coral lips. Or maybe it’s just Priyanka being Priyanka. (Serious pondering mode*)
Grazia Young Fashion Awards, 2015
When you do an all-black structured dress with a cinched waist and a plunging neckline you do it like Priyanka Chopra. Courtesy Ashi Studio, the couture gown was detailed with fine golden embossing that spelled dainty. Eddy yet feminine, she soared with a pair of midnight hued Dior pumps, an effortless side bun and purple lips.
Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, 2016
Hola! The girl in the Monique Lhuillier nude and pink laced-up gown had our hearts the moment she stepped onto that red carpet. She did strapless right along with those orchid lips. An add-on to the oomph meter was a rapid fire of flying kisses from the lady herself.
The Oscars, 2016
Zuhair Murad must be praising the stars when Priyanka walked in a strapless white bustier mermaid dress adorned with bold flowers and sequins. A mirrored Rauwolf clutch, a metallic belt and Monique Lhuillier shoes gave the all-white number some well-earned company.
The Oscars After-Party, 2016
When Priyanka first popped up in front of the paparazzi that evening, we forgot she was a mortal. Resembling a Greek Goddess in that shimmer, head to toe grey-sequined Jenny Packham outfit, there was nothing to do but openly ogle and pinch ourselves for reality’s sake. A sleek ponytail accompanied her persona, but it was the neckline that got us all into fan-girl mode.
They say stars are born. But we say stars are made. And Piggy Chops is an exemplary example of the latter. She can twirl her fingers and be the perfect princess-in-the-making or she could punch you in the gut like a pro boxer.
