Priyanka Chopra bags Instyle’s 'Breakout Style Icon' award
Bollywood’s international star Priyanka Chopra has been honoured with the 'Breakout Style Icon' award at the Instyle Awards at the Getty Center in Los Angeles on October 25. The ‘Quantico’ actress looked gorgeous in a teal and black asymmetrical outfit by Haider Ackermann.
R&B superstar Usher presented the award to Priyanka and was all praise for the actress. He said, “This is a woman who has it all. She is intelligent, down-to-earth, quick-witted, and has a genuine personal style. To me, I consider that a quadruple threat.”
“But most importantly, Priyanka is a role model for women all over the world. For young women in India, she is an iconic symbolization of power and strength,” the singer told while presenting the award.
Talking about her style statement, Priyanka said, “I don’t think that in the last one year I suddenly become more stylish, no. I am not someone who is like, ‘I want to break the internet with what I am wearing!’ I don’t think like that. I wear what I feel, and I need to feel my best in what I wear. I decide on my clothes based on that.”
“I’ve had lot of great reviews for what I wear but I really don’t wear my clothes for that reason. I pick outfits to feel the best that I can feel and I think that’s the only way to wear clothes. You can’t overthink it,” she was quoted as saying.
Priyanka took to her Instagram account and thanked the fashion and celebrity magazine. She posted a picture of her trophy and the invite, and wrote, “Thank you @instylemagazine for the honour. To be part of such August company was amazing. Lovely evening! @danasupnick @anjulaacharia @cristinaehrlich @kevinmichaelericson @irfan525.”
Priyanka, who is already ruling the American television with her thriller series ‘Quantico 2’, will make her Hollywood debut with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron starrer ‘Baywatch’ slated to release in May next year.
