Oscars 2016: Priyanka Chopra bold, beautiful, dripping in diamond

The 'Quantico' star made her debut appearance at the 88th Academy Awards and it was a knockout performance - both on the red carpet and on stage.

The former Miss World and Bollywood superstar is no alien to the red carpet pressure, she glided down the 150 meters long runway like a veteran.

Priyanka was a cool customer drawing all eyes to her beautiful white lace gown.


The actress donned a stunning Zuhair Murad white strapless sweet heart neckline gown with a metal band and completed her look with a no-fuss low pony.

The mermaid fit silhouette accentuated the Indian beauty's petite frame, making us drool over her super sexy straight-off-the-runway look.

We are glad she pulled her loose hair back which only accenuates her face and show off her gorgeous makeup — a brown and gold smokey eye, and perfectly shaped eyebrows and super long lashes. She also rocked a plum lip and it looked seriously amazing.

Priyanka may have drawn the eye with her transparent lace white gown, but the real glitz and glamour was hanging from her ears and fingers - costing a total of just under $8 million.


The India actress was wearing Lorraine Schwartz jewels including 50 carat diamond front back earrings that cost an incredible $3.2 million.

On her hands, she sported a 22 carat diamond ring worth $3.4 million alongside a 10 carat diamond pinky ring worth $850,000 as well as an 8 carat diamond bypass ring costing $300,000.

Priyanka Chopra was also one of the presenters and accompanied by Liev Schreiber on stage.

The two presented the award for Best Film Editing to Margaret Sixel for 'Mad Max: Fury Road'.  

She was composed while reading out from the prompter without any fumble and this time there were no giggles while presenting the award (remember People's Choice Award?).


We instantly fell in love with Priyanka Chopra at the Oscars.
