Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas attended the 2019 Met Gala in spectacular style.
Their first Met Gala since tying the knot in December 2018, Chopra and Jonas certainly embraced the “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme, dressed in Dior and accented with Chopard jewellery.
Chopra, 36, wore a Dior Haute Couture silver, feathery gown complete with cape and crown.
Her makeup was just as stellar, with a combination of silver and berry tones.
Meanwhile Jonas, 26, was in head-to-toe white with silver accents – a Dior Men tux and sparkling silver Christian Louboutin shoes.
However, the singer and actor was quick to point out that it perhaps would have been more apt for him to wear a look from his 2008 Disney Channel Original Movie “Camp Rock.”
Honestly should have worn a Camp Rock inspired outfit tonight given the theme was “camp” that would have been super tight. #MetBall2019

The husband and wife sparkled on the pink carpet, which complemented the pastel-hued feathers of Chopra’s gown perfectly.
“The camp idea as a whole lets you kind of do whatever you want,” Jonas told Vogue from the event. “Louis XIV was a big one for us both, and just playing into that sense of not taking yourself too seriously, having some fun with it.
“We like spending time together, and to get to spend time together looking this outrageous is perfect.”
Chopra explained how she wanted to celebrate her culture by wearing a bindi, a coloured dot worn on the centre of the forehead.
“I always try and find something which defines who I am, which is an amalgamtion of the east and the west, so this year it’s my bindi,” she said.
The annual gala, widely considered to be the most important event in the fashion calendar, holds particular significance for Chopra and Jonas.
The Met Gala 2017 wasthe first red carpet they ever walked together – Chopra and Jonas weren’t officially a couple at the time, but they were both invited as guests of Ralph Lauren.
Having exchanged flirty messages in the run-up to the event (after Jonas slid into Chopra’s Twitter DMs), it’s thought that the gala was where their blossoming relationship was cemented.
“We were a lot more awkward the first time [in 2017],” Chopra told Vogue at this year’s event, adding that at the time they were trying to work out what there was between them.
“We were on the same table,” Chopra previously told “Jimmy Kimmel Live” of the 2017 event.
“We know each other so we were like, ‘Hey you know what, let’s go together.’ And I was like, ‘OK. Let’s go together!’ It just ended up working out.”
