Image result for Not bothered about fashion police: Priyanka Chopra
New Delhi (IANS): Priyanka Chopra’s Oscar
look this year has generated a mixed response
from the fashion gurus. But the Indian
actress has stopped fretting over fashion
police as everyone is entitled to their own
opinion.
Priyanka picked up a body-hugging gown by
designer label Ralph & Russo to flaunt her
toned frame at the 89th Academy Awards in
Los Angeles.
The gown was done with geometric details
with a structured bodice giving a peek-aboo
glimpse of Priyanka’s svelte figure. She
paired her gown with towering ivory heels,
and accessorised the look with the bare
minimum, drawing complete focus on the
dress.
Apart from getting trolled by many on social
media, she even featured in the list of worst
dressed celebrities at the Oscars by some
foreign media outlets.
Talking about the fashion police, Priyanka
had told IANS in an email interview earlier
this month: “I used to (get bothered about
fashion policing) but not so much now.
Now, I wear what I like and what I’m comfortable
in and if someone doesn’t like that,
they don’t.
“They are entitled to their own opinion.”
Last year, Priyanka shot to fame on the foreign
shores with her TV series “Quantico”,
which airs in India on Star World and Star
World HD.
She has since found increased presence
at important red carpet events in the US —
even as she is gearing up to make her Hollywood
debut with “Baywatch”.
In 2016, she had chosen a white embellished
strapless Zuhair Murad gown for the
Oscars, where she was one of the presenters.
This year, however, she did not present
any award.
The 89th edition of the Oscars ran high on
the India factor with the presence of Priyanka,
Indian-origin British actor Dev Patel, his
mother and Indian child actor Sunny Pawar,
8. Even India-set film “The Jungle Book”
won for Visual Effects. And late Indian actor
Om Puri was commemorated in the “In
Memoriam” montage.
The actress doesn’t believe in drawing differences
between the industries, and focuses
on similarities binding the entertainment
world together.
“I have said often enough in the past, there
are many similarities between the two industries…
both in the good and the not so
good aspects. There are also differences
and I guess that’s what makes each unique
to itself,” added the former Miss World.
