Keeping up with her trend of minimalistic fashion, Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra wore a Ralph Lauren sequinned gown that took 1600 hours of embroidery to make, at the recently held Golden Globe awards at Beverly Hills, California. She paired the body-fitted gilded gown with a stunning diamond neckpiece by Lorraine Schwartz. With her spectacular outings at the international awards last year — a sensuous Zuhair Murad white dress at Oscars 2016 and the twirling hot red gown by Jason Wu at the Emmy’s — both national and international media had their eyes on this diva. Though E! Online listed Priyanka’s look amongst the worst dressed celebrities at this year’s award ceremony, the Indian design fraternity feels the star rocked the chic look with class but could do better.

The detailing in the garment uplifted the look to the next level and Priyanka is definitely moving in the right direction, feels designer Urvashi Kaur. “She is becoming bolder and more confident of herself in terms of her fashion choices and has a more international appeal now. I have never noticed her before when she was in India as she never challenged the prototypes earlier and was missing the fashion quotient. Now she looks more modern and on trend,” Urvashi adds.

The actress who made her international debut with Quantico last year looks sexy and elegant, says designer Rina Dhaka and adds, “To stand next to fashionista Sofia Vergara and look as hot and sexy as her, I believe Priyanka did it with utmost grace and sensuality. Also, her look is very modern elegant and the gold works well on her skin tone.”

Talking about her previous red carpet looks, Rina states, “Her previous two red carpet looks (Oscars and Emmy 2016) have been more in the lines of romantic chic, but this one is more glam yet modern simplicity. The open neck adds newness to the whole look and the straight silhouette fits perfectly well with her figure. The open hair and strong lip colour added elements to the whole look.”

Urvashi feels the dress is glamorous and Priyanka looks gorgeous, but from international standards she isn’t there yet. “Priyanka is yet to get it (fashion) like Freida Pinto does but she is working her way up to it. Her fashion taste is evolving.”

Adding to the point, designer Poonam Bhagat states, “I personally did not like the whole look and believe that Priyanka could have done much better. Instead of a plunging neckline, I would have preferred a deeper back. Also, the open hair is making her look broader. With oxblood lip colour, which gives a vintage feel, a 1930’s hairstyle would have looked better, more elegant and chic on Priyanka. Though she wore a beautiful diamond neckpiece, I think a choker would have looked better as she has many lines on her neck, which needs to be covered.”
