It’s hard to believe that Priyanka Chopra hadn’t starred in an English-language feature film until 2017’s Baywatch. Even before the seemingly endless media coverage of her relationship with Nick Jonas, whom she married last November, Chopra had been making headlines for years, thanks to her multifaceted career as everything from a singer to a model to a winner of the Miss World pageant. The latter was back in 2000, and in the following years, Chopra got into acting, too, dominating Bollywood in her native India before beginning to shoot stateside for Quantico, the ABC show she starred in as an FBI agent up until 2018. It was that part that no doubt proved her capable of playing a ruthless, murderous real estate mogul in Baywatch—enough so that the producers changed around the role they’d originally written for a man, and gave her an endless supply of couture and heels to wear on the beach, to boot. Of course, Chopra has enjoyed her fair share of high fashion moments on the red carpet, too; on her 37th birthday, take a look back at the her style evolution, from saris and rompers to the Ralph Lauren trench coat that temporarily hogged the whole carpet at the Met Gala on the night that the future “J Sister” first officially met Jonas, here.
