Chopra in her Afro-inspired hair and outrageous gown inspired a range of funny memes.
So, the most outrageous red-carpet event of the year just concluded and there was a lot of action, with Lady Gaga stripping to her lingerie and Katy Perry dressing as a chandelier.
But this year, yet again, it was our very own desi girl Priyanka Chopra who emerged as the queen of memes.
It may be noted that back in 2017, Chopra’s longest-trail-ever trench coat won her many creative memes on social media. And looks like her look this year, which was uninhibited and undaunted, again broke the Internet with fun memes and amusing comments.
At the 2019 edition of Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual costume gala, the Bollywood star wore a custom-made Dior gown with cage like pattern, feathers and cape. Her voluminous hair, striking eye make and a bindi completed the look. The Twitterati were quick to react to Chopra’s quirky fashion and compared her to everyone from Sri Lankan cricketer Malinga (remember, the big hair) and Glinda, the good witch.
Jonas himself tweeted: “We went camping! Thanks for the look @dior @chopard #metgala.”
Later, he seemed to have had second thoughts about his dress. The singer tweeted, “Honestly should have worn a Camp Rock inspired outfit tonight given the theme was “camp” that would have been super tight. #MetBall2019.”
Here are some reactions from the Twitterverse:

I think #PriyankaChopra watched movie "Chalbaaz" before getting ready for the event.

This is Chopra’s third appearance at the Met Gala. She attended the event with her husband, Nick Jonas. The Gala is particularly significant for the couple, as they first made a public appearance together at the 2017 Met Gala and eventually, according to the duo, began the courtship.
Also present at the Gala was another Indian actor, Deepika Padukone, who wore a voluminous pink gown with big hair.
