Priyanka Oscars

For the Oscars in February last year, PeeCee told E! News that she wanted 'to be comfortable' and wear 'something that lasts all evening -- it's not ripping.'
She chose a 'naked' dress by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad and people loved the sweetheart neckline and the delicate detailing.

She was also wearing jewellery, inset, that cost somewhere in the neighbourhood of $8 million!
The Lorraine Schwartz's creations, which included 50 carat diamond earrings (worth $3.2 million), a 22 carat diamond ring (worth $3.4 million), a 10 carat diamond pinky ring (worth $850,000) and an 8 carat diamond bypass ring (worth $300,000).

How Priyanka prepared for the Oscars

Priyanka Emmy

The scarlet Jason Wu gown Priyanka chose for the Emmys in September 2016 was perfect for a red carpet twirl.
She captioned it perfectly as 'emoji chic'.

The actress paired it with discreet Neil Lane jewellery (discretion, as it often does, came at a steep price -- about $1 million) to let the dress do the talking.

That evening she joined actor Tom Hiddleston to present the Outstanding Directing For A Limited Series, Movie Or Dramatic Special Award to Susanne Bier for The Night Manager, in which Hiddleston played the lead.
