Priyanka Chopra Deserves Better Than This Awkward InStyle Cover

Our forums have a great deal of respect for Laura Brown’s tenure over at InStyle. The editor-in-chief has tapped Melissa McCarthy, Ciara, Rebel Wilson and the cast of Big Little Lies for covers. Now it’s Priyanka Chopra’s turn to be an InStyle cover girl. The actress looks melancholy in the July 2019 cover shot while gazing down the lens of photographer Robbie Fimmano. Complete with styling from Julia von Boehm, Priyanka was captured in tropical surroundings wearing a sequined saree from Tarun Tahiliani.

The cover was a far cry from her debut on InStyle three years ago. “She’s such a stunning, charming person and this is what they came up with? Her expression reads fearful, not sultry, to me. Terrible cover,” declared KINGofVERSAILLES.

“Too much skin. Poor posture. Awkward expression,” said SophiaVB.

“OMG. This is too bad Laura. Why did you do this?” questioned caioherrero.

“Priyanka’s back is all I can see when I look at it; I don’t even look at Priyanka’s face. And there’s no neck!” proclaimed a disapproving dodencebt.

“From the neck up is questionable (head looks too big for her frame, and the absence of her neck), but I’m quite taken with the sensuality here. The stylist really did a shoddy job. She’s hardly wearing that dress,” Benn98 pointed out.

Forum member Joromana wasn’t impressed, either: “Love her, but don’t love these images.”
