You have to hand it to Priyanka Chopra: She’s unstoppable. With an emerging pop career, a buzzworthy new Bollywood flick, a cameo in a blockbuster Hollywood flick, and a cushy gig as the newest NFL queen, she’s quickly minting a reputation as a Bollywood cross-over success story. The latest feather in her cap? A stint as the new Guess Girl. It’s a rarefied distinction also enjoyed by former Guess Girls like Kate Upton, Drew Barrymore, Anna Nicole Smith, and Adriana Lima. Chopra is also the first Indian celebrity to step in as a Guess Girl.
She told WWD, “I’m like their first brown model. For a global fashion brand, for them to move their campaign into a global space, for me it’s an honor.” Our favorite soundbite? This one: “I’m not too American and I’m not too Indian, but I’m a global citizen and that’s what most people are today. And I don’t want to have to change who I am to try and fit in or cater to a certain audience.” These photographs — shot by Bryan Adams (yes, that Bryan Adams!) — are proof positive that Chopra should have no time finding fans across all audiences.
