Here’s the thing about Priyanka Chopra: Even when she’s not on a shoot, she’s so confident, cool, and effortlessly styled, you’d swear she walked right out of a film set or fashion campaign.
While Priyanka turns to stylists for outfit tips, her fashion sense seems totally inherent. It’s no wonder the actor, who turns 36 on Wednesday, looks like she’s on set, even as she walks(or cycles) down the streets of New York or shares poolside snaps.
Frankly, we get excited to see Priyanka walk down a red carpet, but we’ll gladly stop what we’re doing to analyse what she’s wearing in real life. You see, Priyanka manages to make any styling trick — no matter how complicated — look totally effortless. Priyanka starts trends every time she walks out the door and there isn’t a single look she slips on that we wouldn’t call sexy. With just a peek of skin here and a peek there, Priyanka’s a natural at being sexy without revealing too much.
In short, though she may have some fierce competition from Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka is our ultimate street style spirit animal, and we’ve gathered photos that prove she’s worthy of any fashion-loving person’s love.
To celebrate Priyanka Chopra’s birthday on Wednesday, we rounded up eight hot shots from 2018 we could have sworn would end up in a leading fashion magazine, but alas, these are just pictures of Priyanka living her best life, mostly walking on streets. Print them out, hang them up, and by all means let them influence your tomorrow’s look.
Priyanka Chopra kept it chic and sophisticated in a luxe tangerine pantsuit in lavish-looking satin, at Saks Fifth Avenue and Vogue’s Summer Dinner Party in New York. Her tailored-with-a-twist outfit is from Italian label Off-White, which she dressed up with Gianvito Rossi heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery.
Priyanka Chopra’s silky gold Diane von Furstenberg dress came complete with a knotted front and a sash that Priyanka twisted around her neck. Simple neutral heels and delicate earrings be damned, Priyanka accessorised with a yellow purse and matching Malone Souliers Moire Pumps ($437), going for glam with a capital G. Her square sunglasses were a badass touch.
Priyanka Chopra’s one-shoulder fitted asymmetric knit and gathered ruffled skirt are from Jacquemus. Because you’re working with a neutral colour palette, you can have major fun with accessories: For a hit of femme add a matching handbag, gold hoop earrings and sunnies (Priyanka’s are from Dries Van Noten). Then, throw on an unexpected pair of strappy metallic pink heels à la Priyanka’s Aquazzura pair.
Whether you’re in for a night at the club or dinner at your favourite restaurant, it never hurts to look straight fire. Just look at Priyanka Chopra, who paired her floral skirt that boasted a thigh-high slit with a blazer. You can always shed the blazer when things heat up. This is the perfect look to wear for a date that goes from afternoon to evening. We’re totally obsessed.
There’s no denying the menswear nod in Priyanka Chopra’s form-fitting Dion Lee shirt suit, but our eyes couldn’t help but focus on the risqué-but-subtle cutouts carved into her all-business blazer. She dressed up her ladylike-with-a-twist jacket, and matching mini skirt with a micro front slit, with sky-high white pointed-toe slingback pumps from Christian Louboutin, a Jason Stalvey purse and dainty Messika jewellery.
Priyanka Chopra made heads turn in a head-to-toe red ensemble while out and about in New York. The Bajirao Mastani star wore a crimson coat by Vivienne Westwood over a matching co-ord by Spanish designer Alejandra Alonso Rojas and Christian Louboutin shoes. We love the on-trend relaxed pyjama style of Priyanka’s statement set, plus the leather stripes that give it an edgy spin.
Priyanka catches eyes everywhere she goes and that was especially true with this Carolina Herrera sequined top she wore on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon to promote Quantico. She paired the colourful tie-back top with a below-the-knee denim skirt and pink strappy heels.
Got a bunch of first dates lined up? If you’re headed somewhere fancy, this Priyanka Chopra look is definitely your new secret weapon: Sleek sky blue silk coordinates (which might look sultry by themselves, just saying) topped off with a Bottega Veneta bag ($5,500) and cat-eye sunglasses. Try throwing a crisp white blazer over your shoulders to make the look fully date-night-worthy, and add velvet ankle-strap heels to set you apart from the rest (Priyanka’s are from Gianvito Rossi.)
