Priyanka Chopra knows how to make a statement, and where. While the actress is already the talk of Hollywood for her style and composure, her recent appearance at the Met Gala party has just put her on the marquee. The Met Gala, officially The Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute benefit, is often called the 'Oscars of the fashion world', and is known for the power combination of celebrity and fashion attendees.

Making her debut at the annual event, Chopra was dressed in a custom long trenchcoat, with a massive train, designed by Ralph Lauren. The edgy and bold act was a hit with fashionistas and fans across the world leaving little doubt as to why Priyanka Chopra is being hailed as a global fashionista.

The gala paid tribute to honoree Rei Kawakubo, and several celebrities wore dresses designed by the Commes des Garcons designer.

However, few matched the attitude and impact of Chopra's stunning attire. Pairing the long coat with black heels, Chopra's costume carried off the monochromatic theme of the outfit with elan. She totally rocked the Rei Kawakubo theme.

Chopra's makeup was done by Pati Dubroff, who recreated the 'glow that comes from being in a humid storm'(sic). The makeup only accentuated the fierce look of the star's costume, adding to the impact at the event.


Chopra posed alongside Nick Jonas, who was also dressed in Ralph Lauren. She even hung out with Sophie Turner aka Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones.
