Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Alia Bhatt make a splash at Met Gala 2023

Global Indian actors Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Alia Bhatt stole the show at the iconic Met Gala 2023 in New York with their stunning red-carpet looks. While Bhatt turned heads in a glittering silver gown, Chopra Jonas stunned in a dramatic black dress.

The two stars, who had previously attended the event separately, were seen chatting and posing for photos together at the prestigious fashion event. Fans and fashion critics alike were impressed by the actors' fashion choices, with many praising their bold and glamorous looks.

This year's Met Gala theme was "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty," based on the new Costume Institute exhibition exploring the iconic designer's work. Lagerfeld, who died in 2019 at age 85, spent decades creating clothes for Balmain, Patou, Chloe, Fendi and Chanel, and his own namesake label.

Alia Bhatt's Met Gala debut look has received a big thumbs up from fashion police, fans, colleagues and her family. The 'Student of the Year' star hit the iconic red carpet in a dreamy white gown designed by fashion designer Prabal Gurung.

Bhatt shared details about her white outfit. She revealed that it was made using 1 lakh pearls. Also, her white outfit channelled a 1992 bridal look created for Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld and modelled by Claudia Schiffer.

"Met Gala -- Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. I have always been fascinated by the iconic Chanel brides. Season after season, the genius of Karl Lagerfeld shone through in the most innovative and awe-inspiring couture. My look tonight was inspired from this and, in particular, by supermodel Claudia Schiffer's 1992 Chanel bridal look. I wanted to do something that felt authentic (hello, pearls!) and proudly made in India. The embroidery, made with 100,000 pearls, is a labour of love by @prabalgurung. I'm so proud to wear you for my first Met," she shared.

Bhatt teamed the gown with embellished gloves, matching diamond earrings and rings.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas arrived on the Met Gala 2023 red carpet with her husband, Nick Jonas. The power couple twinned in black as they wore Valentino outfits. Chopra Jonas also sported an 11-carat diamond necklace by Bulgari.

Chopra Jonas debuted at the Met Gala in 2017 and is stunning fans and fashion critics with her iconic looks. Her sartorial prowess was fully displayed in 2018, as she flawlessly embodied the "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" theme with a deep ruby-red velvet gown. In 2019, Chopra Jonas's Met Gala look continued to stun audiences, showcasing a stunning display of whimsy and extravagance in a statement Dior gown, keeping in mind the dress code that pays homage to Susan Sontag's 1964 essay, "Notes on 'Camp'.
