Actor Priyanka Chopra has fine-tuned the art of stunning entries at public events and she did not disappoint at Cannes 2019 red carpet. Making her debut at the prestigious film festival, Priyanka wore two different outfits on Thursday and quite literally, took the breath away.

For the first event, she chose a pearly white dress, while for the red carpet, she picked a shimmery black and red strapless gown that flattered her curves. Reportedly, she attended screenings of two films: a documentary on HIV/AIDS called 5B and later, a musical fantasy titled Rocketman, based on the early years of musician Elton John.

Her appearance got an approval from many stars. Her husband Nick Jonas called her ‘Gorgeous’ and so did socialite Paris Hilton. While Indian actors Esha Gupta and Bhumi Pednekar liked her look, Arjun Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter left funny comments. Reacting to her white dress, Arjun wrote: “Surf excel vibes”. In one of her picture, there is a reflection of Priyanka in the mirror behind, which doesn’t show her complete figure. Commenting on it, Ishaan mischievously wrote: “Who’s in the back, though?”

Through the day, Priyanka had shared pictures of iconic stars who had walked the famous red carpet in the past. Names included Princess Diana, Hollywood legends Sophia Lauren and Grace Kelly. In fact, Princess Diana’s outfit was similar to the one which Priyanka wore in the day; with many on social media predicting that she would choose one of the three women’s clothes as inspiration for her look.

On the work front, Priyanka’s last film was the Hollywood release Isn’t It Romantic. She has completed shooting for her next Bollywood venture, Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink, which also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. She has a project coming up with Hollywood star Mindy Kaling, which will reportedly be based on a big fat Indian wedding.

Priyanka’s Instagram page remains as engaging as ever; she recently thanked her many fans as her fan following on the photo sharing web site touched 40 million, ahead of Deepika Padukone at 35 million who is a close second. Priyanka often shares vignettes from her family life in the US. On the occasion of Mother’s Day, Priyanka shared many pictures of her new family including husband Nick Jonas, mother-in-law Denise, sister-in-law and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner among others.
