As UNICEF'S Goodwill Ambassador, Priyanka Chopra works on behalf of the United Nations Children's Fund for children's rights. PeeCee is a big proponent of children's rights and has been making every effort to make the lives of children she comes across better. The actress recently took a trip to Ethiopia to meet with and spend some time with the refugee children there. The Quantico actress was seen interacting, dancing and playing with the children in the videos and pictures she shared on social media. She also highlighted the issues of poverty, sexual violence and child marriage through her posts. (All pictures/Priyanka Chopra's Instagram account)
Priyanka Chopra is also one of the few Indian actors who are invited to and attend internationally acclaimed events and award shows. The Bajirao Mastani actress has attended the prestigious Met Gala and she has even been part of the Oscars. Her latest outing was Cannes 2019 in the French Riviera, after which she had flown down to Ethiopia for her UNICEF duties.
Priyanka is one of the most sought-after style icons globally. Anything she wears makes headlines. Pictured here is Priyanka Chopra at the 2019 Met Gala, and (R) 2018 Met Gala. The theme of Met Gala 2019 was Camp: Notes on Fashion, which took flight from Susan Sontag's 1964 essay: Notes on Camp. At the 2018 Met Gala, donning a Ralph Lauren velvet evening gown, PC was in sync with the year's theme, 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination'.
Priyanka is a big favourite with the most popular fashion designers. Her personal favourite is Ralph Lauren, and we can't help but think that the designer loves her too since he dresses her up so very often for events! In fact, Priyanka wore a Ralph Lauren bridal gown for her Christian wedding to Nick Jonas.
Pictured: Here's the stunner in a Ralph Lauren trench coat dress that she wore to the 2017 Met Gala, where she met Nick! Of course, PeeCee was brutally trolled for her 'tent-like' dress, as many likened it to, but the actress took it in the right spirit and laughed it off.
There aren't many Indian actors who have made it big in Hollywood. Priyanka Chopra, however, is a class apart. She not only made it big, but she did it without a godfather. She starred in the popular ABC drama Quantico, where she played Alex Parrish, an FBI agent. The series ended after the third season, and Priyanka bid adieu to the show with this message, "As the series ends, I am saying goodbye to Alex Parrish. As you'll see, her story will come full circle...and that is the best feeling as an actor. Bringing Alex to life has challenged me physically and emotionally, but even more significant it has (I hope) cracked the door open for female talent and women of colour to play leading ladies. Thank you for opening your homes and hearts to me every week!" Priyanka Chopra was also seen in the Hollywood movies Baywatch and Isn't It Romantic?

Priyanka Chopra is also a regular on Hollywood chat shows. She's been a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Chelsea, all of which are some of the most revered talk shows on American TV. From playing Holi with Jimmy Fallon to doing shots with Ellen, the desi girl has done it all.
Speaking of doing it all, guess who graced Prince Harry's wedding with former Suits actor Meghan Markle? Priyanka Chopra, that's who! The lady sure does have friends in high places now. Priyanka was part of the bridal entourage that attended the royal wedding, and the actress looked every bit a royal herself. Priyanka was seen sporting a single-breasted blazer paired with a lilac pencil skirt and a beautiful hair fascinator by designer Philip Treacy.

The countless incredible pictures and videos on her Instagram prove that Priyanka is a globetrotter. She is a citizen of the world and doesn't really know how to sit still. The actress shared on Instagram, "My one constant...travel. Different places...different people...different worlds (sic)." Now, travel must be even more fun for her considering she has Nick Jonas to wander the world with!
Priyanka Chopra has been on the cover of innumerable national and international magazines. She is also the face of well-liked and respected brands across the world.

The Fashion actress is all about women empowerment. She believes in opening doors for fellow actresses and women in general. Breaking the glass ceiling is something Priyanka has done for the longest time. Talking to mid-day after having invested in the networking and dating app, Bumble, she had said, "I love the idea of empowering women so that they are able to, within the comforts of their homes and safety of whatever their environment is, take charge of their future. Not just their love life but also the opportunities that they want to create. It gives precedence to women and their choices."

Priyanka Chopra may be on her way to global domination, but what acts as the wind beneath her wings is her family - both hers and Nick's. The actress is super close to both her families, especially her mother Madhu Chopra, brother Siddharth, and sister-in-law Sophie Turner of Game Of Thrones fame. And we all know that a close-knit, happy family can go a long way in helping you make all your dreams come true.
Priyanka Chopra recently joined international celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Meryl Streep in USA Today's list of the 50 most powerful women in entertainment. Honoured on getting featured in the list, Priyanka said in a statement: "I feel privileged to share this platform with these amazing women who have each pushed through their own challenges and created their own realities and today stand shoulders above everyone in their chosen careers. It does give one a feeling of achievement." And after everything she has achieved, has Priyanka forgotten her roots? We don't think so!
