Priyanka Chopra glows with style and pride on receiving her award!
She may be winning over America with her hit TV series 'Quantico' and stellar red-carpet style, but this national accolade claims her as an Indian icon! Yes, Priyanka Chopra, actor, performer, musician and the face of Bollywood, was honoured with a Padma Shri Award at Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi. It is a high civilian honour and she surely deserves it!
She's been high on style at every international red carpet appearance but this Indian avatar at the awards just blew us away! Clad in a printed light green Madhurya Creations sari, she sported eclectic accessories, including a statement royal white neckpiece and bangles from Apala by Sumit and Gem Arts Plaza respectively. She left her curls in loose curls and wore a dark green bindi. We love!
Talking about the honour earlier, she said, "From Dil Dhadakane Do to Bajirao Mastani to getting People's Choice award for Quantico and now Padma Shri... I can't explain in words what emotions I am going through. I think I am living my dream". It's a stylish dream, Priyanka!
