Priyanka Chopra has been setting the global red carpets on fire with her edgy fashion sense and varied looks. From donning that stunning white gown by Zaid Murad for the Oscars at the beginning of this year to that avant-garde look for the InStyle awards as the ‘breakout style icon’ in October wearing a Haider Ackerman top and skirt with an exposed zipper.
Well, a lot of work goes into getting that perfect look, and in the recent Beauty Issue of The Hollywood Reporter, we get an insight into the chemistry that our favourite celebrities’ stylists share with them. Among the long line-up is the man responsible for Chopra’s perfectly gorgeous hair – Castillo Ortiz, who has worked with a bunch of celebrities from Halle Berry to Bella Thorne, and our very own Quantico star, of course.
In a candid video, Castillo – as he is popularly known – plays a fun little game with Chopra, trying to guess how well he knows her. From guessing what she eats for breakfast everyday (he got that right – bacon and eggs), to her go-to make-up and style look for an off-day. Now, for someone who spends as much time creating perfection with the Baywatch star’s hair ever so often, you’d think he’d get it right. Turns out – nyah! Castillo’s answer was a beautiful blow-out with berry lips. A pouty Chopra soon interjects (and we don’t blame her) saying she would never make such an effort on her off day.
Right answer – top knot and a red lip!
That has us all high-fiving, doesn’t it? The Q&A didn’t end there, going on to talk about her favourite movie to her favourite wine (red or white). Turns out, poor Castillo may not know the actress all the well, but as they agreed – as long as he’s good at doing her hair, it’s all good!
Castillo, who looks absolutely drop-dead gorgeous himself in the shoot, also got his bag checked by Chopra – after all, one is curious to know what a celebrity stylist would carry in his bag!
Our takeaway from this? Mason Pearson brushes are apparently the “best brushes in the world, for sho”.
