Priyanka Chopra just had her own Carrie Bradshaw moment
Tutu be or not to be
From her Stuart Weitzman boots to her Ralph & Russo gowns, Priyanka Chopra likes to stay ahead of the fashion trends while everybody else plays catch-up. And since everyone from Dior to Saint Laurent have made tulle skirts their go-to choice for girlie dress-up — taking cues from Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And the City —it makes sense that the leggy beauty would soon test-drive the trend.
Last night at the San Francisco Giant’s baseball game, Priyanka debuted her Carrie Bradshaw look in a Balmain tutu paired with a sparkly sweater. And just like Miss Bradshaw, the Quantico star chose a pair of utterly impractical six-inch stilettos to show off her toned legs.
She was invited to throw the first pitch, a honour given to celebrities and achievers, and took to Instagram to declare her excitement. “SoNBD just throwing my first pitch with @annefulenwider and the most incredible achiever’s at AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants).”
And judging by that throw, we’d say our girl is no slouch in the athletics department…
Priyanka Chopra’s celebrity BFFs
Ever since she landed in the US of A, Priyanka Chopra has been quickly making fast friends with Hollywood’s entrenched A-listers. Take a look at her power selfies.
Priyanka met Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox in London and the two had a fierceness off right there in the corridor. Priyanka promised Laverne that she would make a guest appearance on OITNB if she lost, and in turn Laverne bet that she would leave the straight hair trend to Priyanka. We don’t know the outcome of the competition, but we will keep you posted.
The actress recently attended the CFDA awards wearing Michael Kors on both herself and her arm. We wouldn’t be surprised to see selfies with other attendees like Bella Hadid and Karlie Kloss popping up on our timelines.
Fun fact: Meryl Streep actually confused Priyanka Chopra for her Golden Globes award trophy and had the fright of her life when Priyanka started talking to her.
A casual observer might be flummoxed to see Kendall Jenner present at an event where there are no protesters or angry police officers around. Who is she going to pacify with her can of Pepsi? It’s a widely known fact that horses prefer Coca Cola. Nevertheless, she managed to get photographed with Priyanka Chopra, so all’s well with the world.
Prior to this event, Priyanka and Nicole met up thrice to discuss how they can manage to make polka dots relevant again.
Priyanka met the former US President and First Lady at the White House Correspondents dinner last year. These are the smiles of people who don’t know yet that the world is about to head towards an inevitable apocalypse soon.
Lesser known fact: A potentially disastrous mash-up of ‘Exotic’ and ‘Happy’ was thwarted right before this picture was taken at the Oscars last year.
(Not pictured here) Shonda Rhimes huddled in a corner, furiously writing a pilot for the trio to star in stat.
Priyanka spent the better part of her debut at the NYFW, trying to convince Taylor Schilling that orange can never be the new black. After Trump won the elections later that year, Priyanka sent an apology fruit and champagne basket to Taylor.
Priyanka had some free time left after flying around the world non-stop, shooting for a movie and a primetime TV show, and becoming a permanent fixture in American households with her talk show appearances. So she decided to take up the role of a jury member at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival this year. Her fellow jury members include Whoopi Goldberg and a newbie called Robert DeNiro.
When Priyanka ran into Jodie Foster at a shoot, she tried to take tips from The Silence of the Lambs actor on her craft. Jodie was secretly disappointed to realise that by ‘her craft’, Priyanka was not referring to her hidden love for decoupage.
Bryan and Priyanka came to a mutual agreement that mashing up 'Summer of 69' and 'In My City' will end up in collective tears and madness. So they settled for a stunning black and white selfie to make the world feel inadequate.
"Malala, you are an undeniable force to be reckoned with. The world knows that. You are a role model to all the girls and boys that want to make this world a better place for the future. Spending a few hours with you and your incredible father Mr. Yousafzai ( who reminds me so much of my father) , I realized you're also just a young girl with young dreams. Your jokes, Your love for Hindi Films, your infectious laughter will always remind me of what a huge responsibility you have taken on at such a tender age.. I'm so proud to know you my friend. You inspire women like me all over the world," wrote Priyanka as her caption.
"I had the privilege and honor of meeting Her Majesty, @queenrania of Jordan again...this time in Amman. It is amazing to see the full extent of support that the Kingdom of Jordan has provided during the ongoing Syrian refugee crises. The numbers are staggering and overwhelming but the good work continues day after day. Queen Rania is a true inspiration. Her tireless efforts to help those in need comes straight from the heart and has always been consistent.. as a UNICEF Eminent Advocate for Children, she leads by example as is so evident by the countless programmes for children that she is involved in. She does this all with such grace and calm. The meeting and our discussions, further reiterated my commitment to to help children the world over... because every child matters, no matter where they come from," Priyanka said.
"It was so incredible to be on a panel with @gloriasteinem. An icon to the world and definitely one of mine all my life. A true feminist. A fearless fighter for women's rights no matter what, no matter who, no matter where... everything about this legendary woman is selfless. She will never stop. She told me herself. Nor will I @gloriasteinem thank you for always giving a voice to the voiceless. U r my hero," Priyanka wrote as her caption.
