Oscars 2016: Priyanka Chopra dazzles in diamonds and a Zuhair Murad gown
Los Angeles: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra opted for a white embellished strapless gown by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad at her maiden Oscars where she is also presenting.
The former Miss World, who rose to fame last year when her ABC thriller, "Quantico", premiered, pulled her hair back into a subtle pony — with a center part.
The 33-year-old actress also rocked a very light, golden brown smokey eye.
Diamond accessories were an integral part of her wardrobe as Chopra sported big, chunky drop earrings and rings.
"Diamonds are a girls best friend.. #Oscars," she wrote alongside a photograph on Instagram.
Chopra may have nailed it on the red carpet but she admitted that she is a little nervous about messing up at the Oscars stage while presenting an award.
"Have you practiced the names?" Ryan Seacrest asked Chopra.
"Yes I did. Thank God that yesterday I pre-recorded all the names for the nominees because I was like, 'Oh my God I'm definitely gonna mess this up!' But I don't think that's gonna happen because it's pre-recorded and all done," she said.
Chopra has been nailing it on the red carpet this awards season.
At the People's Choice Awards in January (where she received the award for best actress in a new television series), the Indian actress sparkled in a sequined take on the colour block trend by Vera Wang.
