It is for the very first time that any male or female from India has been able to make a significant impact on Hollywood and around the world. Priyanka Chopra has catapulted her way to the top and finds herself on every influential magazine cover and talk show. To every important red-carpet event, testimony that our very own desi girl has turned America's sweetheart.
India's first truly global star was recently honored with the InStyle Award for Breakthrough Style Star. The international magazine credited this win to Priyanka's consistently show stopping looks and for the enthusiasm and proficiency she brought to the red carpet. Says Eric Wilson, InStyle fashion news director, ”Priyanka Chopra is always very careful to arrive in a great-looking outfit and she makes the rounds that's hard work.'
While Priyanka Chopra rocked a two-tone Haider Ackermann design at the star studded event, it was global popstar Usher's touching words, which stole the show.
Introducing her to the audience, the R&B superstar 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. Truly if style is more than just cool clothing and really about inner and outer beauty, passion, and compassion, Priyanka is the personified, iconic, remarkable, incredible, style icon. I'm honored to present this year's Breakthrough Style Star and a good friend of mine, Priyanka Chopra.'
Priyanka also shared a video of InStyle awards and also thanked Usher for giving her the opportunity to present the award. Her post read, “Thank you @usher for taking the time to present me this award!You're awesome! Thank you for the kind words. Your family India trip is pending!”
