Priyanka Chopra flaunts feathered Lebanese look in Amsterdam

DUBAI: Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is on a wedding world tour and is pulling out all the stops when it comes to her fashion choices.

The bride-to-be, who is set to marry US pop star Nick Jonas, took her international bachelorette festivities to the streets of Amsterdam this week, after a much-reported-on bridal shower in New York.

In Amsterdam, she chose to wear a feathered minidress by Lebanese designer Georges Chakra, straight from his Spring 2018 haute couture collection.

The delicate dress was encrusted with crystals and sequins and featured a feathered cape.

Chopra took to Instagram and posted a series of photos in which she poses in the ethereal dress, which she paired with white Christian Louboutin heels and a white faux fur coat.

“Featherweight champion of the world,” she captioned one of the photos.

“Artist and gorgeous bride-to-be @priyankachopra celebrated her bachelorette weekend in Amsterdam wearing a white, long-sleeved beaded cocktail dress with feather detailing and long-sleeved feather duster from the Georges Chakra couture 2018 collection!” the fashion house captioned a reposted version of one of the photos on its Instagram account.

The 36-year-old partied with her friends and family, including “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, who is engaged to Chopra’s future brother-in-law, Joe Jonas.

The bridal party took to the streets of Amsterdam wearing red-and-white ensembles, while Chopra stood out in her flamboyant feathered look.

The stint in Amsterdam followed Chopra’s intimate bridal shower held at Tiffany’s Blue Box Café in New York on Sunday.

The star wore a fitted gown by Marchesa with ostrich-feather detailing and nude Christian Louboutin heels.

Guests at the party included Kevin Jonas, TV show host Kelly Ripa and actor Lupita Nyong’o.

Chopra and Jonas have not announced the date of their nuptials, but according to reports the happy couple will say “I do” in India at the end of November.

The couple celebrated their engagement in Chopra’s home country with a bash in Mumbai in August.

Rihanna opens New York pop-up shop for her Fenty label

  • Fenty will unveil a new mini-collection at the pop-up store
  • Most of the items will be also available at their online shop

NEW YORK: Rolling out her concept of fashion that is not a slave to the seasons or the shackles of Fashion Week, Rihanna opened the second pop-up shop of her Fenty brand in New York Tuesday, a month after the launch of the new fashion house in Paris.
Fenty, which the Barbados-born diva launched with French luxury powerhouse LVMH, has set up shop in fashionable Soho store The Webster and officially opens to the public from Wednesday until June 30.
It provided an occasion for the young fashion house to unveil a new mini-collection, called “6-19” after its launch date, following on from the inaugural “5-19” collection in Paris last month.
Some pieces from the first collection are back, alongside some new items, including a series of dresses and skirts in bold colors like orange or yellow but also some very dense prints.
The cuts are figure-hugging with plunging necklines and the label has chosen soft materials such as satin or mesh.
Most of the pieces are available online from Wednesday, with the exception of a set of T-shirts, at $230 each, which are only available in the store before being marketed online in July.
The prices of the collection are similar to the Paris offerings, which ranged from $250 for a T-shirt to more than $1,000 for a denim jacket or pantsuit.
Rihanna, the world’s richest female musician, is the first black woman to head up a fashion house for Paris-based LVMH, which owns Dior, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Givenchy among others.
Fenty, named for the 31-year-old singer, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, is LVMH’s first new luxury brand from scratch since the launch of Christian Lacroix in 1987.
