Every time Savoir Flair posts about Priyanka Chopra on social media, the comments section becomes more active than usual. For some reason, the actress has become a divisive subject in media, leading some writers to decry her as a “scammer” or “inauthentic” because of her May-December marriage to Nick Jonas – that infamous, now-deleted New York Magazine article instantly comes to mind.
Personally, we don’t get what all the fuss is about. Significantly older leading men in Hollywood have been marrying (much) younger women from time immemorial. To us, it smacks of ageism and sexism when criticism about age differences and opportunism are tossed Chopra’s way – after all, no one seems to clock Jonas for appreciating an older woman. Or maybe we’re just diehard #TeamChopra acolytes because of how awesome and authentically refreshing her new YouTube series is.
As split as commenters seem to be on her personal life and how she chooses to display it, there’s one thing that we find little arguing with: her sense of style. It doesn’t matter if you love her or love to hate her, it’s obvious that Chopra knows how to wear the heck out of a look – tweedy separates, silky slipdresses, and denim midis alike. And whether it’s through multiple outfit changes in a single day or a weekend of highly romantic looks at Cannes, Chopra always commands attention for her ensembles – be they on or off the red carpet. Below, we’ve rounded up some of her best red carpet moments, but please, no arguing in our Instagram comments section this time?
