Priyanka Chopra stole the spotlight at the Grammys for not just accompanying husband Nick Jonas, who performed at the awards night, but also for her plunging white gown.
While many loved her look on the red carpet, many also criticised the actor. Some felt it was ‘too much’!
While Priyanka herself didn’t reply to the trolls, actor Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and Canadian TV actor Kaitlyn Bristowe of The Bachelorette fame gave it back to the haters on social media.
Designer Wendell Rodricks had commented on Priyanka’s appearance on Instagram. He wrote, “@priyankachopra nailed it at the Grammys 2020. Truly the bold and beautiful in this @ralphandrusso couture fringed gown where the neckline goes all the way from LA to Cuba. Love it.”
Suchitra Krishnamoorthi wrote a long note in response to Wendell Rodricks post about Priyanka’s dress.
She wrote, “Was so upset to see this post on insta by Wendel Rodrigues who’s work I otherwise have a modicum of respect for. I think the fact that Priyanka is not trying to hide her belly with her clutch is what makes this pic so beautiful. Makes her the rockstar she is. Her confidence an inspiration to every woman. Women have been so enslaven by men’s opinion of how women should look this photograph of Priyanka to me at the world’s most publicized event is the height of liberation. You go girl and keep rocking it. I was never a fan of the lady but this pic has surely made me one.”
She added, “So dear men. We are not ur pre pubescent hipless perverted fantasy or your teenage gay boy flat chested contortion. We are real women, we have breasts, we have fat we have water retention and we rock and roll.
Because …we are finally allowing ourselves as God intended us to be. Not how men fantasized us to be. We are flesh and blood and and glorious rolls of it. It gets even more beautiful when we have babies and the rolls grow – in direct adverse proportion to the dark areas in your primitive brain. So ***tiya ugly men get this. We are not our bodies. We are our abilities. We are our talent. We are our own rock stars. Would anybody have dared comment on a mans belly or appearance like this? God knows we see grotesque images of them everyday and all the time. More power to you #PriyankaChopra. I’m going to flash my flabby baby stretch marks with confidence tomorow thanks to you. And may every girl and woman in the world grow your confidence too . Bless you.”
Kaitlyn responded to the trolls on People magazine’s social media post, which appreciated the look of the wives of the Jonas Brothers – Priyanka Chopra, Sophie Turner and Danielle Jonas at the awards ceremony. Kaitlyn wrote,
“Beautiful powerful women. Disgusting comments from sad women.”
Priyanka found immediate support on Instagram as many of them showed solidarity with Kaitlyn’s comment. A reader wrote,” “yes!! They look beautiful and I agree so much with this!! Its sad to see women criticize other women so much. For what?! So many negative people out there just saying something rude on social bc they can hide behind their phones. Its sadly expected… but, gorgeous wives indeed!”
