We need to talk about Priyanka Chopra's boots


We need to talk about Priyanka Chopra’s boots

These boots were made for gawking

By ELLE team  September 25th, 2017

On Saturday night, Priyanka Chopra co-hosted the Global Citizen Festival in New York alongside Freida Pinto, Lupita N’yongo, Hugh Jackman, Kal Penn and other celebrities. The event blends entertainment with activism with a line-up of music acts and performers from around the world. And while most people would say Pharell Williams and Stevie Wonder’s rendition of ‘Happy’ was the highlight of the evening, we would be willing to pit them against Priyanka’s spotlight-stealing boots.

The actress rocked a shift dress with matching thigh-high boots, the complete ensemble from Fausto Puglisi. While you’re still pairing matching co-ords, Priyanka Chopra just took the co-ord game up a notch. With more celebrities rocking sky high boots this season, we’re left to wonder if the upper thigh is the new midriff. She accessorised it with round Lennon-esque sunglasses and hardcore ’60s vibe. Channelling her designer flower-power, PC head banged away as a Global Citizen ambassador. But check out all the shoes that didn’t make the cut…

Priyanka Chopra has the coolest bag collection

Priyanka Chopra’s boots have been stealing the spotlight lately, but the lady’s equally proficient in collecting high-profile arm candy.


Her bag wardrobe is partial to Valentino, but we do blame Pier Paolo Piccioli for making it impossible to select just one. Priyanka indulged her soft spot for studded backpacks with another pick from Valentino’s Rockstud range. 


Given how quickly the Prada Saffiano Cuir tote flies off the shelf, we’re guessing Priyanka queued up early to get hers and has since been holding it dear. Not that we blame her; the roomy beige number scores majorly on both form and function. 


Given the choice between lugging a tote and shrugging on a backpack, Priyanka would gladly advocate the latter, but greater men have succumbed to the charms of Givenchy. The stately Antigona duffel was a constant by her side during the recent Baywatch promotions spree. 


Her list of luxury indulgences continues with the Gucci Sukey tote that has been by her side for better part of the past decade. The original GG tote packs in roomy interiors, the signature Gucci print and major street cred.


What’s a Bollywood A-lister without a monogrammed Louis Vuitton backing up her star status? Priyanka’s trusty Louis Vuitton tote (circa 2014) would like the world to know that she's only just beginning her conquest, thank you very much. 


Tone-on-tone ennui? Not for Priyanka. The Baywatch diva’s airport visits are a nod to the military trend, with her favourite Maison Valentino backpack. "I carry my whole life in my Valentino camo-print backpack. If I get on a plane and lose my luggage, I can survive with just my backpack," she admits.
