Priyanka Chopra Puts a Modern Spin on Marilyn Monroe's Iconic White Halter Dress
Priyanka Chopra looked utterly angelic as she stepped out for a day of press engagements in New York City.
The actress arrived at The View's studio today to chat about her latest film, Love Again.
For the on-air interview, she wore a breezy white halter dress that channeled Marilyn Monroe's iconic 1954 dress. The ankle-length piece featured a plunging neckline, an A-line skirt, and an open back broken up by a single twisted strap. She put a modern spin on the timeless look with a pair of white boot heels, white-frame sunglasses, and large gold hoop earrings and matching rings.
She wore inky-black eyeliner, rosy makeup, and a pink lip, and had her hair styled in elegant waves.

Chopra has been on a style streak while promoting her latest projects. Late last month, she attended a screening for her show Citadel in Los Angeles wearing a silky asymmetrical fuchsia gown. One one side, the piece featured a ruched detail on the waist and a high leg slit; on the other, it had a long, flowy train that fell from her shoulder to the carpet. Chopra further elevated the look with bedazzled silver sandals by Aquazzura and silver and diamond jewelry.
She attended various other events for the series earlier in the month—once in a sleek black long-sleeve midi dress, once in a fabulous strapless teal gown with black abstract polka dots from Versace's fall/winter 2023 ready-to-wear collection, and once in a gleaming gold evening gown with a metallic finish and a big black bow at the middle.
