Actor Priyanka Chopra has been lucky so far; fashion critics all over the world have given her thumbs up for all her looks on the red carpet. But the actor reveals that she doesn’t take the red carpet too seriously and lets her mood dictate her clothes.

Though she has her stylist helping her to a large extent, Priyanka prefers to wear clothes that aren’t too “fashion forward”. “I rely on my stylist completely to procure the clothes, but I finally decide which outfit to go with. I always decide my outfit depending on my mood and that has been a big reason why my red carpet appearances aren’t majorly fashion forward. I don’t consider myself a fashionista but I like to be the best version of myself. So I have to wear what I feel best in. I always have three options ready because I change my mind all the time and that is my birth right as a woman. You have to be on the red carpet feeling most special because as soon as you pretend to be something you are not, people see through it and then you end up looking stiff. I need to enjoy myself on the red carpet and that is very important,” she says.

“There are times when I would like to be just another person. I am not saying I don’t want to be Priyanka Chopra. But personally, when there is a crisis to deal with, I feel like I am just another girl with usual problems. So, sometimes, it gets overwhelming to not be able to explain to the world when I walk out about how I am actually feeling. You are expected to have a pleasant demeanour and you always have to be the star that people expect you to be. That can sometimes get taxing,” Priyanka says.
