Priyanka Chopra’s twin wins at Oscars: How she won the after party
India may not have made to Oscar winners list but Priyanka Chopra slayed the Academy Awards red carpet for us. If the Quantico beauty looked gorgeous in the Zuhair Murad ‘naked’ dress and jewels worth $8 million during the award ceremony, she won it in a beautiful grey Jenny Peckham gown for the Vanity Fair Oscars after party.
She wore the silver sequinned dress with a lazy ponytail and stood head-to-head with Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Alicia Vikander, Jennifer Garner and Taylor Swift in style stakes.
The Bollywood star, whose ABC show Quantico is back on TV with all new episodes this Sunday, also ruled Google. In fact, as she made her red carpet debut at the 88th Academy Awards on Monday, was the second most searched celebrity. Guess who came first? Leonardo DiCaprio who finally won an Oscar for The Revenant after five earlier misses!
Priyanka presented the Oscar in the Best Film Editing category to Mad Max: Fury Road along with Hollywood actor Liev Schreiber at the awards night, which took place at the Dolby Theatre.
