Deepika Padukone spotted at Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party in LA


Looks like there will be not one, but two Bollywood beauties at the Oscars red carpet this time, as Deepika Padukone was spotted at the Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party held in Los Angeles.

The leggy beauty looked stunning in a gorgeous black Roland Mouret dress at the red-carpet party. She teamed with black Roger Vivier sandals, and left her hair and went with minimal make-up.

Along with Deepika, other Hollywood biggies, including nominees for the year like Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Viola Davis among others were also present at the pre-party. Freida Pinto too was spotted at the event hosted by Brei Larson.

Earlier, when reports of Deepika attending the 89 Academy Awards on Sunday were doing the rounds, the actress had denied them as mere rumours. She did say the news was “interesting,” but didn’t confirm attending the prestigious event.

Priyanka Chopra, who was a presenter at last year’s Oscars has also confirmed being a part of the coveted awards ceremony again this time. The ‘Quantico’ actress took to Instagram and shared a picture of her with Mick Jagger, lead singer and a co-founder of rock band Rolling Stones, and captioned it, “Change of plans! Oscars here we come.. @mickjagger LA LA land..."

In January, Priyanka presented an award at the 74th Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, and in a pleasant surprise, Deepika too made an appearance at the after-party of the awards.
