Priyanka, Nick become 'People's' Best Dressed celebs

Wednesday 11th September 2019 06:45 EDT

Priyanka Chopra and her pop star husband Nick Jonas topped 'People' magazine’s list of Best Dressed celebs this year. It is for the first time in the celebrity magazine’s history that a couple has shared top style honours. “It’s the first time ever that we have had a man or a couple on the Top 10 list, let alone as the best dressed. But it really felt like these two deserved it,” People’s style and beauty director, Andrea Lavinthal said.

“The combination of the two of them is so exciting to watch. (Jonas) is not exactly someone who just wears a black tuxedo and stands next to her on the red carpet. You can tell that he enjoys fashion as much as she does,” Lavinthal added. Priyanka reacted to the post with an Instagram post. She thanked the magazine for featuring her and Nick on their list.

Priyanka, 37, a former Miss World who became a star in both Hollywood and Bollywood, and Jonas, 26, topped People’s annual best dressed list in an eclectic slate that included Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, Celine Dion, Serena Williams and Billy Porter, Gemma Chan.

Lavinthal praised Priyanka and Jonas for embracing different styles and designers but always looking good. “They don’t do matchy-matchy but they still look like they go together,” she said. “Even walking down the street in New York City, they are not in jeans and a T-shirt or casual pants. She is in a head to toe look, and so is he.”

Priyanka became the first Indian to headline a US television drama series as the star of 'Quantico.' She married the younger of the three Jonas Brothers musicians in New Delhi in December 2018, becoming one of the most sought-after celebrity couples in the world. On the work front, Priyanka has just signed a Netflix adaptation of Aravind Adiga's Man-Booker Prize winning novel 'The White Tiger'. It stars Rajkummar Rao in a central role and is directed by Iranian-American filmmaker Ramin Bahrani. She also has Shonali Bose's film, 'The Sky Is Pink' lined up for release this year.
