Priyanka Chopra's Most Memorable Outfits, From Cutout Gowns to Naked Dresses

Priyanka Chopra has a knack for pulling off unexpected outfits in the most stunning way. Sure, she's won the Miss World pageant, become a huge Bollywood star, and even earned awards for her role on the ABC show "Quantico," but it's on the red carpet where she truly shines. She steps out time after time in gorgeous dresses with just the right amount of sparkle, color, or sheen to catch everyone's attention. Clearly, Chopra isn't afraid to show off her bold sense of style — with the help of wardrobe curator Rebecca Corbin-Murray — and fans love her for it. While the mom-of-one is always the picture of elegance and class, she's not afraid to try out the season's most bold and adventurous trends.

Chopra, 40, has posed in nearly naked dresses with extreme side cutouts for photo shoots. She channeled Marilyn Monroe in a plunging white halter gown worn with matching boots. For date night, she's stepped out with husband Nick Jonas by her side, wearing a pink minidress with ab and leg cutouts. Even on the red carpet, she brings a certain alluring flair to her outfits, memorably posing at a movie premiere in a red-hot corset dress. At the 2023 Met Gala, she took things a step further, climbing the famed steps in a black strapless Valentino gown with a hip-high slit.

We've already learned plenty about elevated, ladylike dressing from Chopra. Read on for the best outfits from a star who has managed to put her own unique spin on everything from designer clothes to band T-shirts, the latter of which couldn't be more appropriate, given her husband's claim to fame.
