Priyanka Chopra’s Swarovski headgear at the Met Gala 2018 took 250 hours to bead

Priyanka Chopra headgear turned heads at the red carpet of Met Gala 2018

Quantico star Priyanka Chopra is an ace at red carpet appearances. Yet again, our very own desi girl made a major style statement on the red carpet when she showed up in a deep burgundy velvet gown at this year’s annual Met Gala in New York City.

The actress paired her Ralph Lauren strapless gown with an embellished gold chainmail coif. The outfit reminded us of a medieval knight, or of Mother Mary, and is a perfect ode to this year’s theme– Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

The fabric of the gown is velvet and is plain except for the stunning headgear that goes with it.

Finger waves and deep burgundy lips completed the look of this veteran at making excellent fashion choices.

She opted for gold glitter on her arms and eyes to add the right balance of glam and classic.

The dress was a definite departure from the Ralph Lauren trench coat ensemble with a cathedral train that she wore to last year’s Met Gala.

The elegant-yet-beautiful Ralph Lauren trench-coat gown was the most drool-worthy outfit on the grand red carpet. It captured the whimsy of the Internet and inspired countless memes.

On Instagram, Ralph Lauren shared a close-up look at Chopra’s golden hood and revealed the custom piece took over 250 hours to hand bead. The ornate piece is made of red Swarovski crystals and gold beading.
