Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra wore a white Gauri and Nayanika gown for her debut outing at the Grammy Awards this year. The 29-year-old actress tweeted a picture of herself just before music industry's biggest awards night at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.
"A special behind the scenes pic only 4 U (sic). On my way to the Grammys. In a Gauri Nainika original! What say guys?" Priyanka's earlier tweets reflect that the actress was in a hurry to reach the awards venue and was worried about making it to the red carpet. "I know it's started... Don't think I'll make red carpet.. Just landed! Will make the show tho (sic)! Better planning next time," she said in a post.
Her style was in sync with the fashion at this year's Grammys as artists and celebrities walking down the red carpet kept their fashion a more understated affair than usual with the death of Whitney Houston on their minds. The multiple Grammy winning singer, 48, died on the eve of music industry's biggest night. Colors were more subdued at the Grammys and there were quite a few women wearing black.
The night's big winner Adele was as usual dressed in a black beaded gown, debuting her newly dyed blonde hair instead of her fiery red mane. Rihanna, known to turn heads with her stunning fashion choices, kept her look simple with a black revealing Armani number. Singer Alicia Keys was also spotted in a black dress.
Lady Gaga, who has earned a name in wearing outrageous outfits, shunned the red carpet but attended the show in a black and gold plastic dominatrix-style corset over a black mesh bodysuit. Pop star Katy Perry arrived with blue hair that complemented a full-length baby blue sparkly gown with plunging back, while rapper Nicki Minaj sported a red Versace couture hooded cape and arrived on the arm of an escort dressed in a pope outfit.
