Met Gala 2018: Priyanka Chopra Wins Hearts With Her Stunner Of An Outfit
An interesting theme, dramatic and over-the-top sartorial stories and a star-studded guest list are typical prerequisites of the annual Met Gala event. And the Met Gala 2018 was certainly no different with ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ as the theme of this fashion extravaganza. Among the stunners of the evening was one of our favourite Bollywood fashionistas and international style icon, Priyanka Chopra, who, in point of fact, looked nothing short of an angel gliding down the red carpet.
Priyanka, as we know, has been on a rigorous promotional schedule for her upcoming Hollywood film, A Kid Like Jake, and from what we’ve seen so far, the actress sure seems to have upped her style game. So this red carpet look comes as a wonderful addition to her new and improved style file, though this look was put together by her regular stylist, Cristina Ehrlich and not Mimi Cutrell who is responsible for her recent promotional looks.
After having worked the most dramatic trench we’ve ever seen at last year’s Met Gala, the actress teamed up yet again with Ralph Laurent for this year’s theme and donned a deep burgundy strapless velvet gown with a relatively subtle (from a Met Gala perspective), flowy train by the designer. What so heavenly about this gown? Well, it was the elaborately beaded hood that made all the difference.
The gown was teamed up with a red beaded hood that was crafted out of red Swarovski crystals and gold beads with 250 painstaking hours of hand-beading, as was posted on the label’s official account.
What further cemented the angelic vibe of PC’s look was the golden body glitter that was used not just on the eyelids but on her arms too, though less liberally on the latter. Structured waves pulled back in a bun and a beautifully bold maroon smile completed Chopra’s look.
Amidst the overly dramatic sartorial choices as were donned by the likes of Katy Perry, Blake Lively and Adriana Grande, it was quite an achievement to stand out with a relatively less dramatic number, a feat only a stylista of Chopra’s calibre could have achieved.
