Priyanka Chopra takes a page out of BFF Meghan Markle’s style book

By Meaghan Wray

Best friends Priyanka Chopra and Meghan Markle share a lot more than just their acting experience, dedication to humanitarian work and love of the theatre (they met up in the Big Apple years ago to see Hamilton!). They are also both sartorially savvy, and their shared love of fashion is showing! The Quantico star stepped out on Tuesday (Oct. 9) in a monochromatic look that called to mind an ensemble that the duchess donned last week.

Making the New York City streets her catwalk (as usual!), Priyanka wore a red power look, comprised of a crepe blouse and leather pencil skirt by Swiss fashion house Akris (a favourite of Monaco’s Princess Charlene!). She also carried a small red handbag and accessorized with snakeskin pumps. The ensemble called to mind what the Duchess of Sussex wore while with Prince Harry on a visit to their namesake county – an emerald green Hugo Boss leather pencil skirt paired with a matching blouse by & Other Stories and a coordinated mini Gabriela Hearst bag. Meghan kept her footwear simple with her trusty Stuart Weitzman suede pumps.

The famous friends have always shown off their personalities with style! Since becoming a royal, Meghan has allowed her pre-duchess days to influence her current fashion choices, often veering away from the Royal Family’s more traditional silhouettes. Though her ensembles have become slightly more proper since joining ‘the firm,’ her own taste certainly still shines through.

Similarly, Priyanka has been having one of her most stylish years to date! While the star has definitely been out and about more than ever since dating and becoming engaged to Nick Jonas, she’s always had an knack for creating eye-catching looks. The 36-year-old spent much of her summer traveling between New York and India with her future husband, doing humanitarian work, introducing their families and enjoying some downtime before their upcoming wedding. But through it all, she still found time to support her royal friend, taking to Instagram to share her excitement over Meghan’s first solo charity project, Together: Our Community Cookbook . "So proud of you for this new endeavour Meghan," Priyanka said alongside a photo of the cookbook's cover. "This is everything you always stood for. Women supporting women. Supporting communities. Bringing Togetherness. Here you do it again.. Keep making the world smile babe!"
