Priyanka Chopra

She looked like a bride and felt “like a princess” — then she threw on just under $8 million worth of diamonds for her appearance at the 88th Annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night. Dressed in a translucent Zuhair Murad gown, using her Miss World pout to perfection, we’re not alone in thinking Priyanka Chopra would have dazzled even without those Lorraine Schwartz sparklers! After all, her smile was breath-taking and her eyes twinkled as she made her first-ever trip down the Oscar red carpet, alongside Lady GaGa and Heidi Klum — who also chose multi-million dollar diamonds from Schwartz for Hollywood’s big night.

Sharing the stage with Liev Schreiber to announce the Academy Award for Achievement in Film Editing, PC ticked all the boxes as a presenter — carrying herself with grace and making the daunting experience look relatively easy. She may not have worn her ‘country colours’ like best actress nominee Saoirse Ronan did (choosing a custom-made green gown by Calvin Klein as a tribute to Ireland), but Priyanka rocked the red carpet with her ‘namaste’ nonetheless. Bringing a little ‘desi girl’ to the big stage, Priyanka proved that she could fit in and stand out at the same time. Expect more bold moves from daddy’s lil girl as she continues to pave the way.
