Priyanka Chopra walked the red carpet at the recently held Met Gala and quite literally, owned the night. Incorporating just the right amount of theatrics, the Quantico actor stepped out in a deep burgundy Ralph Lauren strapless velvet gown with an intricately beaded and jewelled hood. And in case you have any doubts, take our word that she looked like a queen.
The theme of the prestigious event was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ and Chopra, wearing a fitting gown and the bejewelled headgear, did look heavenly. And if you are still unsure about the ensemble, here is a quirky fact from Ralph Lauren’s Instagram page about the hood: “This Ralph Lauren creation is completely crafted by hand, with Swarovski crystals, meticulous beadwork, and over 250 hours of embroidery.”
Chopra impressed one and all with her sartorial choice. And people took to social media to praise her. While many raved about her look, there were some who, much like last time, were busy making memes.
While one wrote, “When you’re about to go at #MetGala but mom says champi kiye bina ghar ke bahar pair mat rakhna,” others compared her headgear to the one Ranveer Singh’s character wore in Bajirao Mastani. Yes, you read that right. Each is funnier than the other.
