Priyanka Chopra is a bonafide global icon today, but her tryst with the limelight started over a decade ago on November 30, 2000, at the Millennium Dome in London, United Kingdom, when she won the Miss World pageant in front of a euphoric crowd. Ever since, the actress – who made her Bollywood debut with the spy thriller The Hero in 2003 – has undergone a massive change, not just in terms of her performances on screen but also her style quotient off it. She has surely taken fashion goals to a level most celebs would be intimidated or simply uncomfortable with. Priyanka Chopra, in her own way, has shown us that if you have an open mind and are keen to experiment with styles then something is definitely going to work out for you.

Priyanka Chopra’s versatility is inspiring as she never fails to come up with innovative looks. Take the example of her appearances since the beginning of this year. From Oscars and Golden Globe Awards to her debut Met Gala, each look has been unique, not to forget her promotional spree for Baywatch which was an interesting spectacle too. What we love the most about her is that she does not believe in restricting herself to a signature look and carries everything with oodles of confidence. Shimmery eyes, muted eyes, smokey eyes, glossy lips, purple lips, the classic red, retro waves, layered bob, messy braids, name it and she has done it all.

Here’s a look at her style evolution over the years!

We can’t ignore the iconic picture when Priyanka Chopra was crowned Miss World on November 30, 2000.



Her love for shiny bindis was evident with the actor sporting them on numerous occasions. 


Here goes another one!


And another one while attending an event with Miss World Yukta Mookhey!


When blow-dried, wavy mane was a thing. 


When she paired a choker with a beaded pastel gown but it still couldn’t save the day. Reason? Her hair and make-up.


When her fashion game was definitely not at its best!

Dear God! A fashion disaster starting from her hair to her make-up!

This hairstyle is something we would never go for and those accessories are a complete mismatch. 

Rocking metallics? Not! It’s just tacky.

We love floral but this? Nope. Never. 

What’s up with the cutout top?!

When she thought of experimenting with a sheer gown. 


When red was her favourite colour. 

Here’s another one!

Lehengas we love. But this? Ummm…. why?!

When she couldn’t do justice to an all-black look. Also, the caked make-up made for a sore sight. 

Talk about killing the look with one wrong accessory. In this case, it is the shiny belt.

Did she use the entire bottle of foundation on her face? 

Those heels and the necklace could have been definitely done away with.

Not all her looks were disastrous. Here she shows us how to rock a white lehenga.

She also shows us how to wear a white sheer sari in style. 


But soon after, she messes up a look with the wrong hairstyle. 

The actor has experimented a lot with her hairstyles.


Here, she can be seen rocking the feather haircut and ripped denims much before 2017. 

We have realised that retro waves if not done right can kill an entire look. In this case, it totally did. 

But the actor with straight hair in this netted Ritu Kumar sari and a heavy embellished blouse with heavy zardosi and detailed cutwork looks ravishing.

When footwear makes all the difference. In this case, it did not do much. A nude instead of a black pair would have looked better. 

When she smouldered in a black and gold gown by Arpan Vohra.

Giving off a very Julia Roberts vibe in this gorgeous Gauri and Nainika gown, Chopra couldn’t have looked more beautiful even if she tried.
