Priyanka Chopra, the soon-to-be-bride, celebrated her bridal shower recently. The pretty white bridal shower dress that the Quantico star wore made more headlines than the event itself. Priyanka chose to wear a gown from Marchesa, a brand co-owned by Georgina Chapman.

Priyanka had to face criticism for picking the gown as Chapman happens to be the former wife of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein who has been charged with rape and sexual assault by multiple women in the industry.

The 36-year-old actress, who was questioned for wearing the dress by the designer, has slammed the people who criticised her. Talking to Women’s Wear Daily, Priyanka said, “Georgina’s a friend of mine, and she has been. And it’s not her fault. And I don’t think it’s right to take it out on a self-made woman what somebody in her life did. 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.”

“Women supporting women, that’s what we’re all about,” she added.

Previously, popular Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson wore the same brand to MET Gala 2018 and people railed against her on social media.

Back then, addressing the issue, the Avengers actress had said, “I wore Marchesa because their clothes make women feel confident and beautiful, and it is my pleasure to support a brand created by two incredibly talented and important female designers.”
