Priyanka Chopra’s Violet Dress For The 2021 Oscar Nominations Missed The Mark. She’s Worn Better
From setting top bridal trends at her wedding to turning the streets of New York into her own personal runway, Priyanka Chopra obviously knows how to wield fashion the right way. The former Miss World has an impeccable taste in clothes and classy style which shows every time she dresses up for an event. This year, the 93rd Academy Awards picked her and husband Nick Jonas to announce the nominations. Her movie The White Tiger also got a nod and made it to the nominees list in the adaptive screenplay category. Now, that’s a big feat. But it was doubly special for Chopra since she is also the first Indian to announce the Oscar nominations ever. So obviously, she spent a little extra time and effort dressing for the part.
For the early morning livestream on Monday, she wore a Greta Constantine number, a tea length blue dress with a ruffled halter neck top and tiered skirt. We think it was her own way to beat the Monday morning blues. The dress was a statement in itself since it featured plenty interesting and exciting details like ruffles, layers, tie-up neck and we noticed some polka dots on one see-through tier of the skirt too. Admittedly, there was a lot going on. And we at Hauterfly didn’t love everything about this dress, there was too much going on.
To her credit, PeeCee kept her jewellery and makeup very minimal and subtle. She wore a Bulgari watch, also in blue, diamond earrings and a cocktail ring. However, she wore heels in contrasting pink to add the fun colour-blocking touch to the look. Her Christian Louboutin pointy-toe pumps completed the look.

Although Priyanka owns every look she rocks, this flirty dress was a welcome change from Chopra’s recent sartorial picks which have mostly included formals and workwear staples. For the promotions of The White Tiger and her book launch events, she essentially stuck to structured pant suits, silk tops and pencil skirts. However, this striking and chic dress made up for all the times we missed to see the former beauty queen in a playful style. However, the poofy skirt did her no favours and we think this is a rare miss from Priyanka. Just remember to balance things out with minimal accessories and maybe add of pop of clashing colour like Chopra did her with her gorgeous heels.
While she turned heads in her dreamy blue dress, husband Nick Jonas complemented her perfectly in a completely contrasting colour. He looked fine in a golden yellow tuxedo coupled with a white shirt and shoes. Is it just me or he looks like the human version of the Oscar trophy, that only Chopra gets to take home with her? Anyway, the power couple seemed to have a lot of fun while announcing the nominations and even spotted stealing the mammoth version of the trophy home. All in fun, no worries!
