Desi Girl Indeed: 7 Times Priyanka Chopra Gave Us Some Serious Fashion Inspo In A Saree


It is practically impossible to use “Priyanka Chopra” and “desi girl” in the same sentence and not think of a saree! Yes, the association has been that hard-wired in our heads. Nope, we aren’t complaining. And all this while PC has totally lived up to the title by giving us one show-stealing saree look after the other. Well, it is the OG desi girl’s birthday today and it sounds only fitting that we do a round-up of her best looks just for our fashion-crazed heart’s sake. What do you say fam–feel like getting lost in the six-yard magnificence of the saree? The party begins right now:

Winning Awards & Winning Hearts


Back in 2016, when Priyanka Chopra won her Padma Shri award, it was her lemon yellow Zamdani that won our hearts. Paired beautifully with a quarter sleeve brocade blouse and a pearl necklace, the Madhurya saree made a strong case for handloom drapes and we were all for it. 

Feeling Blue–Desi Girl Style


The flying pallu, PC’s million dollar smile, and all that charm–we’d be lying if we say that we did not purchase a foil print saree just after this look went viral. 

Channeling Some Retro Vibes


There was hardly anything or anyone else that we could pay attention to after Priyanka made an appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show wearing this polka dot beauty by Sabyasachi. From the full-sleeved blouse to PC’s clean chignon, everything about this look exuded some solid retro glamm. 

Taking The Vintage Road


Priyanka definitely has a thing for both Sabysachi and vintage fashion and this floral drape is proof enough. She donned this saree during the Sky Is Pink promotions and we dig this look for its timeless elegance. Don’t miss out on the grandma watch on her wrist, you guys. Pretty sure that PC always carries a pocket-sized vial of yesteryear charm with her all the time. 

Fusion Game On Fire


Back in February 2020, Priyanka Chopra walked down the runway for Tarun Tahiliani during the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour in a three-piece corset saree and we are still not over it. Be it the spot-on dripping or that bejeweled belt, we love every single detail in this outfit. In a way, it comes across as the perfect representation for PC’s diasporic identity as well, right?

Chantilly Charm FTW


For Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’s wedding, Sabyasachi especially arranged for a powder pink, chantilly lace saree and a plunge neck blouse to be sent to Priyanka in London. We are glad that none of those efforts go to waste as the actress did perfect justice to the drape. Also, can we please take a moment to admire the matching roses in her bun?

The Iconic Gold Saree


How can we possibly do a round-up of PC’s best saree looks and miss out on this iconic gold offering by Manish Malhotra? It’s been over a decade since Dostana’s release and we’d still recreate this look in a heartbeat. Classic! 

Here’s wishing PC a very happy birthday.
