Los Angeles: Actress Priyanka Chopra has become the toast of fashion critics as she made an understated yet stylish debut appearance at the Emmys wearing a Jason Wu one-shouldered all-red gown.
Priyanka kept her accessories limited to just a diamond ring and drop diamond earrings. The mak-up was also minimal barring her stand-out red pout, which became an instant hit with fashion experts.
Even her neatly tied ponytail scored brownie points. Many international websites with the likes of E! Online, Vogue and People put Priyanka at the top of their best-dressed Emmys list, which also had Hollywood actresses Sofia Vergara, Taraji P Henson, Sarah Paulson, Emily Ratajkowski, Kristen Bell and Michelle Dockery.
The 34-year-old “Quantico” actress enjoyed every moment at the ceremony as she happily posed, twirled and spun around at the red carpet, showing off the delicate layers of her gown.
When asked if she was nervous before the Emmy red carpet, Priyanka said, “No nerves, only for the heat outside, can’t wait to get inside airconditioning. I am conserving my energy.”
“Quantico” season two goes on air on September 25. Sharing her excitement about it, she said, “We have an explosive first episode. At the end of the first episode, people are going to say ‘Wait, what?’ But that’s what we like. Guys, it is ‘Quantico’.”
The actress was also asked if she will be seen doing the trademark slow-motion run in the “Baywatch” big screen reboot, in which she plays the main antagonist.
“I have done slow-mo all my career and I will leave all the slow-mo to Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in ‘Baywatch’. I am the antagonist in the movie and I will only walk in slow-mo in the movie. Running is too much of an effort,” Priyanka said.
Making the most of her maiden appearance as a presenter, the actress repeated her twirl on stage as her co-presenter Tom Hiddleston lent her the perfect support.
The duo presented the Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special award to “The Night Manager director” Susanne Bier. Hiddleston played the lead in the drama.
Earlier this year, the actress presented at Academy Awards. The actress is now gearing up for the second season of her American series “Quantico”, which goes on air on September 25.
