Actress Priyanka Chopra, who chose a Lebanese designer’s pristine white ensemble for her Academy Awards appearance, says she wanted to turn up at the gala in a pretty, feminine and a “very classic” gown.

The “Quantico” star was one of the presenters at the 88th Academy Awards — which took place here on Sunday — where she looked stunning in a structured cage bustier mermaid dress in white silk tulle adorned with 3D shimmering climbing flowers. The dress was a creation by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad.

“I can’t be told what to wear. So, when I told Sophia I was like… It has to be a moment… the outfit. That I definitely want. It’s one of the biggest red carpets in the world. It’s super long so, I want to be comfortable for sure. And something that lasts the whole evening…you know it’s not ripping,” she told eonline.com.

The busy actress had to hop from the Oscars ceremony to the after-party and finally to film “Baywatch” in Miami.

“‘Baywatch’ is such a big brand… I grew up watching the show. ‘Baywatch’ and ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ were my favourites. When I read the script, it was hilarious. So funny that it will be really something that people will wanna watch,” she said.
