DUBAI: Priyanka Chopra was a vision in red as she accepted a humanitarian award at Tuesday evening’s 15th annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York.
The Indian actress, who was honored with the charitable organization’s Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award for her philanthropic work with UNICEF over the years, wore a crimson Salvatore Ferragamo gown with a single, long sleeve and a high neck.
The dress boasted a floor-trailing train and an open-back, and she accessorized it with a pair of diamond earrings that shone bright against her raked-back ponytail.
The award was presented by American fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, who took to Instagram to share that she “had the privilege to give Priyanka Chopra Jonas the UNICEF’s Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award for her amazing work and dedication to children.”
The 37-year-old has been a Goodwill Ambassador for more than a decade, traveling to support the organization’s work in her native India and other developing nations.
The Bollywood star’s red carpet appearance comes just days after she celebrated her one-year wedding anniversary with husband Nick Jonas, who wasn’t present at the star-studded ball.
Also at the event was Disney actress Sofia Carson and hijab-wearing model Halima Aden, who wore an Antonio Grimaldi Couture look for the occasion. The ensemble featured an ivory-colored bodice and white, embellished trousers. The Somali-born beauty elevated the look with a metallic purse and matching heels.
