Pee Cee has now become a Hollywood icon and she proved it by hosting a diwali party at her Manhattan apartment and guess what..
Everyone wore Indian ethnic clothing!
From actors, writers, Quantico stars to several American media persons, there were many who turned up at Priyanka Chopra’s first diwali bash. Ace style editor Edward Barsamian was seen in a beige silk kurta-pyjama whereas actress Tracy Ifeachor wore a blingy gold-and black choli.
David Bradley Lim and Jake McLaughlin chose casuals and PeeCee's make up artist Stephanie wore a a blue salwar and jhumkas. Brit actor-writer Ralph Brown flaunted his colourful tee with a large print of Lord Ganesha on it.
Piggy Chops wore a gauzy white sari teamed with a gold zardosi blouse. By the end of the night, an enthusiastic guest had painted a long, white fernshaped bindi on her forehead, teasingly referring to her as "Goddess Priyanka!”
The 34-year-old-actress will make her Hollywood debut alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in Baywatch.
Singer-songwriter and one of PeeCee’s close friends, Jay Sean, wouldn’t get off the dance floor and even managed to cut a video with the hostess, their enthusiastic “Happy Diwali” shout out drowned by a loud Arabic sound in the background.
An Indian chef was hired for the occasion and he put out a lavish spread which included chicken and mutton delicacies, piles of parathas, bowls of chhole and biryani. There was a long dessert list, with gulab jamun and rasmalai.
There were return gifts for everyone and the happy film maker friend,UK-based Gurinder Chadha, flaunting her red and yellow bandini gift, bid farewell to the host hooting, “This is how Diwali should be done. Like true Punjabi women. No one can party like us!”
