Priyanka Chopra Puts a Downtown Twist on the Classic “Ladies Who Lunch” Look

Leave it to Priyanka Chopra to bust out multiple fashion twists in one single outing. Today, the actress hit the streets in New York City in an ensemble that was all about extreme contrasts. First, she mixed downtown and uptown style codes by delivering a surprising take on that signature “ladies who lunch” aesthetic, which dominates the streets of Manhattan. Chopra suited up in a short skirt and off-the-shoulder blazer by Ralph & Russo, which had Upper East Side power lunch written all over it, then gave it a more downtown feel with her choice of cool accessories: cat-eye sunglasses, a metallic shoulder bag, and Chopard jewelry for that superstar-worthy finish.

Then, she busted out yet another surprise, this time doing a dressed-up take on the plastic shoe, which has been appearing on the feet of daring celebrities such as Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner, and more. The trend has typically been styled in a more grungy, streetwear vibe; Chopra is the first to really wear it in a polished, business-like context. Hers were by Sergio Rossi and felt shockingly refined with their studded trim and pin-thin stilettos. Could you imagine showing up to an important meeting, feet and toes completely on display? Perhaps that’s why Chopra styled them in an interesting, semi-offbeat way—they work especially well as a bit of distraction.
