Priyanka Chopra was at the 2018 Clive Davis’ Pre- Grammy Gala in New York on Saturday to honour Jay-Z. The gala and the ‘Grammy Salute’ was also attended by Pink, John Legend, Sting, Cardi B, Camilla Cabello, Chrissy Teigen and more big names from the world of music.

The actor wore a stunning white satin suit over a black lacy bralette. Several stars were expected to turn up in white at the Grammys and its related events to show solidarity to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements that turned the Golden Globes black on January 7.
