Priyanka Chopra made her first-ever appearance on the Cannes red carpet in a show-stopping embellished gown by designer Roberto Cavalli. The Matrix actor showed off her décolletage and toned legs in the dual-toned strapless ensemble featuring sequin embellishments and a dramatic train. In the end, Priyanka styled her Cannes look with pair of diamond earrings and rings – all by Chopard, side-swept wavy hair, mauve lips, a graphic eyeliner, volumising mascara and gold eyeshadow.
Priyanka turned into a literal bride for her second appearance on the Cannes red carpet with her husband, Nick Jonas. The actor chose a strapless tulle gown by Georges Hobeika that scored high on drama with layers of sheer tulle overlay and a long train. She accentuated her white-wedding look with a pair of diamond drop earrings, necklace, metallic heels, nude lips, bold eye makeup and a sleek ponytail.
Apart from her red-carpet looks, Priyanka made several fashionable appearances throughout her time in the French Riviera town. She wore a Rick Owens’ sky blue regal satin gown with a deep plunging neckline and loose sleeves for an outing with Nick. She teamed it with a cut-out statement belt by Maison Alaia that accentuated her curves.
