For her maiden Oscar red carpet appearance, the 33-year-old Quantico star opted for a white embellished
strapless gown by the Lebanese designer.

"I want it to be like feminine, and very classic for the Oscars," she said.

The Bajirao Mastani actress said she wanted "to be comfortable, for sure," in her gown, and the dress itself
needed to be something that lasts all evening, reported E!Online.

"I can't be told what to wear. So, when I told Sophia (Priyanka's LA-based stylist) I was like, it has to be a
moment... the outfit.

"It's one of the biggest red carpets in the world. It's super long so, I want to be comfortable for sure. And
something that lasts the whole evening... You know it's not ripping."

The actress slipped into a shimmery Jenny Packham dress for the Vanity Fair post-Oscars party.
