Actor Priyanka Chopra was trolled for her look at the recently held Metropolitan Museum of Arts Gala 2019. And now, in her latest interview with an international media organisation, she talked about the inspiration behind the look. Priyanka wore a custom-made Dior Haute Couture gown with sheer tights and a rainbow feathered skirt. She kept her hair extremely frizzy and added a sky-high silver crown to her look. What added more to her appearance were those silver eyebrows and dramatic eye makeup.
While talking to Today, PC said that she took inspiration from King Louis and his era, and Johnny Depp’s look as Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. This means that Priyanka didn’t just look like Mad Hatter coincidentally, as the trolls suggested, but she deliberately wanted to leave that look behind at the pink carpet of the Met Gala 2019. Talking about the look further, the actor maintained that Met Gala is all about going overtly dramatic with your look. She said you either go big or go home when it comes to attending Met Gala. Priyanka also revealed that her look was extremely comfortable and she felt good in the dress. The Quantico star mentioned that she didn’t understand the theme of the event – Camp: Notes on Fashion but she was sure that it was about the more the better.
Attending the Met Gala this year was special for Priyanka as this was the first time she had the company of her ‘husband’ Nick Jonas. Two years back, at Met Gala 2017, the two walked together the pink carpet giving everyone the first official sight of their relationship. PC later revealed that they had just started seeing each other post the event.
Before appearing at Met Gala 2019, Nick talked to the media and revealed how he was looking forward to seeing his wife, Priyanka shine at the event this year. He said that he was just going to be there to support Priyanka as she geared up to rock the event.
Priyanka and Nick got married in dual wedding ceremonies in December last year at Umaid Bhawan Palace in India. The duo then hosted three wedding receptions in India and one in the US.
