Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her husband Nick Jonas are on Met Gala’s Benefit Committee this year. This is just another achievement for PC considering she would be the first Indian to be hosting the prestigious Met Gala 2019. Priyanka is taking pride in it. In her latest statement to a daily, she mentioned how much it means for her to be on the Benefit Committee of Met Gala along with names like Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Lupito Nyong’o, Bradley Cooper, Blake Lively and Jared Leto among others.
Priyanka talked to DNA about the same and said she has got many memories attached to Met Gala and she considers this as an honour. Priyanka was quoted by the daily saying, “I have so many special memories attached to the Met Gala… It’s an honour to be a part of the Benefit Committee for this year’s Gala, alongside Nick. It’ll be a fun night and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Interestingly, Met Gala was the platform where Priyanka and Nick gave their first appearance together. She wore a giant trench dress and walked the red carpet with Nick in 2017. Both Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas later recalled the moment and mentioned it was magical. In the next year, she was declared as the best-dressed celebrity at Met Gala 2018 after turning up looking ‘heavenly’ in a maroon velvet number with a stunning head covering detail.
Priyanka, as many of her fans had predicted a few years ago, is going places today. She also attended the 10th Women in World Summit with the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Anna Wintour, Brie Larson and Stacey Abrams. PC took the stage to talk about feminism, breaking the glass ceilings and the importance of utilising the opportunity of going global.
She said that women today are getting the kind of freedom they never got before in the history of mankind and therefore, it’s time they realise their our own potential as women and do things that they love to do. Priyanka talked about being active towards the welfare of society and mentioned that she comes from the family where philanthropy wasn’t a choice but the second nature and therefore, she will always focus on making the world a better place for everyone. She was quoted saying, “Unfortunately, people like to read about me falling on the red carpet a lot more than anything else that I do, so I take that power and bring the attention to something that the world actually needs to talk about.”
