Actress Priyanka Chopra, who chose a Lebanese designer’s pristine white ensemble for her Academy Awards appearance, says she wanted to turn up at the gala in a pretty, feminine and a “very classic” gown.
The “Quantico” star was one of the presenters at the 88th Academy Awards where she looked stunning in a structured cage bustier mermaid dress in white silk tulle adorned with 3D shimmering climbing flowers. The dress was a creation by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad.
“I can’t be told what to wear. So, when I told Sophia I was like… It has to be a moment… the outfit. That I definitely want. It’s one of the biggest red carpets in the world. It’s super long so, I want to be comfortable for sure. And something that lasts the whole evening…you know it’s not ripping,” she told reporters.
The busy actress had to hop from the Oscars ceremony to the after-party and finally to film “Baywatch” in Miami.
“I wanted to make sure that it lasts all night and I wanted it to be pretty and feminine…very classic for the Oscars,” said the “Bajirao Mastani” star.
