If you were completely taken by Priyanka Chopra‘s recent Met Gala gown, wait till you see what the Bollywood actress wore to a UNICEF fundraiser! No, it was not something pushing the envelope when it comes to fashion, but something that might just make you feel a tad more proud of this lady.
Yes, we’re talking about the dotted black saree and hand-printed tiger blouse she wore to UNICEF’s fundraising event in Zimbabwe.
The Quantico star looked stunning in the ensemble designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, which clearly celebrates India’s national animal–the tiger. Sabyasachi called the ensemble ‘Sunderban Sari’ in his recent Instagram post, indicating that the hand-printed tiger on PeeCee’s blouse represents the Royal Bengal Tiger species.
While Priyanka also gave a powerful speech to raise awareness for the UNICEF’s ‘End Violence Against Children’ initiative, it was her very Indian saree–especially the unique blouse–that caught the world’s eyes. The actress not only represented her nation as a UN Goodwill Ambassador, but also brought some focus on the beauty and power represented by India’s national animal.
Really Priyanka, you made us so proud with this powerful fashion statement.
