BE­HIND THE SCENES WITH OUR JULY COVER STAR, PRIYANKA CHO­PRA JONAS

InStyle (USA) - - Contents -

On the set of our shoot Priyanka Cho­pra Jonas ex­plained that she’s just as much “a jeans–and–t-shirt girl” as she is “a sexy sari siren.” To ac­com­mo­date her East-meets-west aes­thetic, cloth­ing racks were stacked with popular In­dian de­sign­ers like Sabyasachi Cal­cutta and Tarun Tahil­iani as well as Amer­i­can and Euro­pean la­bels such as J.crew, Fendi, and Hermès. Cho­pra Jonas even brought a few choice ac­ces­sories of her own, in­clud­ing a pair of mu­si­cal an­klets—called ghun­groo bells—that she wore while show­ing off her best clas­si­cal In­dian dance moves. She also bopped along to hits by her hus­band Nick’s band, the Jonas Broth­ers, be­fore end­ing the day with an­other flour­ish: For­go­ing a shirt un­der her tra­di­tional sari, Cho­pra Jonas bared her skin while strik­ing an over-the-shoul­der pose. It was yet an­other sign that, at 37, the long­time Bol­ly­wood star feels com­fort­able em­brac­ing her her­itage on her own terms. “I’ve al­ways been a big cham­pion of my cul­ture,” she said. “I re­ally want to in­tro­duce it to the world in an ad­ven­tur­ous way.”
