The night before Bumble India’s launch dinner in New York on Monday night, @Priyankachopra had been busy celebrating another upcoming union in New York: her wedding to Nick Jonas. For the bridal shower, the actress had chosen a white strapless gown with feathers designed by Marchesa.

And I don’t think it’s right to take it out on a self-made woman what somebody in her life did,” she added. “That’s the wrong attitude. I’ve known her for years, and that was a beautiful gown, and deserved to be worn by a bride-to-be. And it made me feel like a princess. It was the right choice.” #wwdeye
