Priyanka Chopra kicked off summer movie season in style at Miami with the much awaited world premiere of her upcoming film, Baywatch. With stars like Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandria Daddario present, Chopra still managed to steal the show with a stylish appearance. Despite her role as the villainous Victoria Leeds in the film, Chopra seems to be a hit with the crowd in Miami. 

Dressed in a vintage Halston wrap dress with a plunging neckline and an elegant slit, the actress kept with the beach theme of the party. The shimmering gown took nothing away from Chopra's glittery eye make up, done by Cristina Ehlrich. Speaking to the media at the event, Chopra said that playing the villain certainly was not easy. "We got on really well though. I tried hard to be a jerk, but I couldn't because everyone else was super nice." She did manage to tap into her evil side, she admitted. "I did try to go a little method with my walk, and my talk, and trying to find out what would an evil person would do, and what can I get away with. Which is a lot, I realised," said Chopra.

That was not the only advantage Chopra had. While her co-stars struggled with dinners consisting of 'one olive, and two almonds' to keep in shape to fit their swimsuits, the Quantico actress enjoyed showing off in couture. "When you are sitting in Miami beach with a margarita or a Bellini, in your bikini, you think 'wow, I get paid to do this. It's a good life,'" Chopra laughed. 

Even as the others joined in the premiere, Chopra remained the eye candy of the media. Even Dwayne Johnson stopped by to steal a kiss from the gorgeous actress, leaving her a tad bit flushed. 

Johnson was not the only Baywatch star who seemed to be smitten by Chopra. David 'The Hoff' Hasselhoff was at the premiere, and Chopra was quick to take a picture with the iconic star of the cult television series that spawned the movie. 

At a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Chopra had revealed how David Hasselhoff had called her up wanting to work in a project in India. 

Directed by Seth Gordon, Baywatch releases in US theatres on 25 May, while it opens in Indian theatres on 2 June.
