Hosted by Editor-in-Chief, Laura Brown, and in its second edition this year, the InStyle Annual Awards honored Priyanka Chopra as the Breakthrough Style Star of 2016. The awards celebrate the convergence of film and fashion. Chopra, who has been burning up the red carpet in haute looks like the red Jason Wu gown she wore at the Emmy’s, is the embodiment of this. She was honored alongside other style icons like Tom Ford (2016 winner of Designer of the Year), Nicole Kidman (2016 Style Icon the Year). While 2016 has proved to be a landmark year for the newly minted fashion icon, the style spotlight is nothing new for Chopra who won Miss World in 2000, thanks in large part to her fashionable ensembles.
Chopra has been used to the high fashion life for nearly two decades now, ever since she won the Miss World title in 2000. This time, its different, because we are in an era where being a model or an actor automatically means being a fashion muse, and the two together means being an influencer. Chopra is a natural at that - a quick glance at the magazine covers she has graced, red carpets she slayed at, and award shows she has presented at, and one can tell just how nonchalantly flamboyant she can be with fashion.
From being a beauty pageant winner to a Bollywood superstar well on her way to becoming a global icon, Chopra has played a huge role in representing India. In small but effective ways, she continues to be a big reason that India is becoming more prominent on the global fashion map. Could this mean Indian designers and brands can carve global identities for themselves? We can't wait to find out!
The InStyle Annual Awards took place yesterday in Los Angeles, with an intimate dinner setting. The magazine will profile the winners along with their Hollywood’s 50 Best Dressed List in the November issue. Check out their feed here!
