Nick Jonas has confessed he sometimes steals face masks from his wife Priyanka Chopra.

The singer/actor wed the Quantico beauty in an opulent ceremony last December, and in a new interview with People, revealed that when he runs out of his skincare products, he doesn’t hesitate to use Priyanka’s.

“For sure. I don’t know who makes them, but (I take her) sheet masks. Then I’ll occasionally run out of facial moisturiser or something and I’ll use hers. I think she likes it. She likes to share. Or maybe she doesn’t. We’ll see,” Nick laughed.

The Jumanji: The Next Level star recently launched JVxNJ Silver Edition, his third fragrance collaboration with designer John Varvatos. And he said his famous older brothers – Joe and Kevin – were left out of the creative process as they don’t have any ideas when it comes to selecting aftershaves.

“My brothers have terrible opinions! They like the first one John and I made (JVxNJ) but I haven’t shown them this one yet,” the 27-year-old shared, adding that wife Priyanka loves the new fragrance, which features note of bergamot, sage, patchouli, and sandalwood.

“She likes that I am mixing it up,” he commented of the new, muskier scent. “I’m glad that she does because I’ll be wearing it quite a lot! When I am planning what I am wearing, since my closet has a lot of variety, a big piece of the puzzle is choosing what fragrance I want to wear too.”

JVXNJ Silver Edition is priced from $74 (£58).

Priyanka Chopra is to voice the character of Elsa in the Hindi version of the upcoming animated sequel Frozen 2.

The 37-year-old actress took to Instagram to reveal her new voice role and announce that her real-life cousin Parineeti Chopra will voice her on-screen sister Anna in the film.

“Mimi and Tisha are now Elsa and Anna! The #ChopraSisters are finally coming together for Disney’s Frozen 2. Can’t wait for you guys to see us… I mean HEAR us bring these amazing, strong characters to life in Hindi,” she wrote alongside a poster of the pair standing together in an animated forest.

Meanwhile, Disney representatives also tweeted the news, sharing the same poster and writing: “Some moments are worth melting for! Welcoming the dynamic sisters @priyankachopra and @ParineetiChopra as the voices for Elsa and Anna in Hindi! #Frozen2 #FrozenSisters.”

It won’t be Priyanka’s first time working with Disney as she previously voiced a character in 2013 animated movie Planes.

In the English-language version of Frozen 2, Elsa is voiced by Idina Menzel and Anna is voiced by Kristen Bell. The sequel, which also features the voices of Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff, is due for release next month.

Priyanka Chopra felt challenged in every scene in The Sky is Pink because she hadn’t personally experienced what her character was going through.

The Indian actress found fame in Hollywood with TV series Quantico and the Baywatch movie, and is frequently hitting headlines for her relationship with now-husband Nick Jonas. After the U.S. TV show came to end last year, Chopra made a brief appearance in Isn’t It Romantic before going back to her Indian roots with romance drama The Sky is Pink.

In the Indian-language film, she plays the real-life Aditi Chaudhary, who had two children, including Aisha, who is born with SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency) and subsequently developed pulmonary fibrosis, and the actress admitted the character was challenging for her.

“I did Quantico for three years, I knew that character well, and I did not surprise or challenge myself for a long time,” she said during a promotional trip to India, according to wionews.com. “This film was scaring me in every scene. I am not a mother and I have not lost a child – and this role made me experience these two aspects – so I really liked that. I felt challenged to do such a role.”

The film spans more than 25 years, but Priyanka, 37, is not obviously aged during the course of the film and she explained that was in keeping with the real Aditi’s philosophy.

“Because of the biases that surround us, I also thought when a woman ages, she needs to look dowdy but that’s not true,” she added. “Aditi herself says, ‘When life sucks, look like a million bucks’. She believes in that philosophy. So it was a conscious decision to look the way I look on screen.”

Priyanka Chopra has put herself in the running to be the first female James Bond.

The Quantico actress, who is a massive fan of the British spy drama franchise, thinks it’s definitely time for a female 007 – and she believes she’s the perfect candidate.

“I’ve always been keen on (playing James Bond) but I can’t put myself into the race obviously,” she told Britain’s Metro newspaper. “I think, in my lifetime it would be amazing to have a female Bond. Whether that’s me or someone else, it’s something I would love to see.”

The Baywatch star made it clear she’s a serious contender and, when asked which actress she could see stepping into Daniel Craig’s shoes, she joked: “Me!”

“I don’t know, I would just be very happy with the fact that it would be a woman,” The Sky Is Pink actress explained. “I definitely think (it’s time).”

Filming recently wrapped on the 25th Bond movie, No Time To Die, which is rumoured to be Craig’s fifth and final outing in the role. His replacement has been a hot topic for years, with the likes of Richard Madden, Idris Elba, James Norton and Cillian Murphy named as hot favourites to take over.

It was recently reported that Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch would be “introduced as 007” in the upcoming movie, which hits cinemas in April.

Other franchise newcomers include Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, and Billy Magnussen, and they join returning stars including Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Jeffrey Wright.

Oscar de la Renta has tapped into its Latin American roots for spring/summer 2020.

The luxury fashion house, which is helmed by co-creative directors Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, unveiled their latest collection at the Cunard Building as part of New York Fashion Week on Tuesday night, with celebrities including Lucy Hale, Karolina Kurkova, and Priyanka Chopra all perched on the front row.

In the show notes, the designers explained that they were inspired by late brand founder de la Renta’s Dominican heritage, as well as Garcia’s childhood, as he grew up in the same nation, as well as in northern Spain.

With a backdrop featuring colourful arched walls, potted palm trees, and baskets filled with fruit, the presentation opened with a model walking the white runway in a draped pink and peach dress matched with a pale pink blazer, with the ensemble topped off with strappy white stilettos.

A series of dresses made of floaty fabrics in yellow and floral print followed, with Garcia and Kim also introducing knitted tops and pleated skirts, kaftan-style dresses, striped asymmetrical gowns with frayed edging, as well as strapless gowns with woven patterning.

Featuring a palette of sunset hues, including lemon yellows, orange, and blush pink, the line was interspersed with touches of sky blue, olive green, and coral.

The show wrapped up with a parade of models showing off glamorous evening gowns made of taffeta or tiered tulle, with Candice Swanepoel rocking a strapless nude number with a corset-like bodice, and Irina Shayk closing the spectacle in a gorgeous black gown with halterneck and high-low skirt.

New York Fashion Week continues on Wednesday with shows from Michael Kors and Dennis Basso.

Christian Louboutin thanked his “partner in crime” Diane von Furstenberg for her unwavering support as he accepted a top fashion honour from the Couture Council on Wednesday.

The 56-year-old Frenchman was given the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion, which recognises his contributions to the fashion industry, in a ceremony at the Lincoln Center in New York.

In his emotional speech, Louboutin reflected on his career and thanked his longtime friend for her efforts in kickstarting his now-iconic footwear brand.

“She’s my godmother, she’s my sister, she’s my travel companion, she’s my oracle, she’s my partner in every crime,” he shared. “She has always been a radiant of support, emotionally and professionally.”

He recalled how he had even sold his first pair of shoes in America from Furstenberg’s office as he started out in fashion, and wanted to share the prestigious award with his friend of more than thirty years.

“I owe her so much, but more than that, I love her so much,” Louboutin gushed. “To me, this award is also a celebration of love and friendship, so I would like to share this award with her, my oldest friend, Diane von Furstenberg.”

The designer was introduced to the stage by his friend, actress Priyanka Chopra, who wore a pair of white Louboutin slingback shoes in honour of the Frenchman.

“These iconic shoes that women around the world have worn make… each one of us real women, everyday woman when we wear these shoes, when we own our first pair, we achieve such a sense of achievement, a sense of pride,” Chopra said. “It gives you the little extra oomph that you need.”

During his speech, Louboutin recalled how he first met the Quantico actress at a film festival in Morocco before she met her now-husband Nick Jonas, and the duo later met up in India, “where they got to share lots of great nights and dirty stories”.

Priyanka Chopra calls for more ‘balanced’ beauty standards in Hollywood

Priyanka Chopra has urged Hollywood stars to embrace their flaws.  

The Baywatch actress made an appearance at the Beautycon event in Los Angeles over the weekend, and in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, spoke about the pressures of being a woman working in the entertainment industry.  

Reflecting on the current standards of beauty, Priyanka called for more “balance”. 

“I think the standard of beauty is something that has been created by us… and I think calling that out in the first place and saying that, ‘Yeah, there are days where you can look perfect with the perfect hair and make-up and perfect wardrobe, but there will be days where you don’t,’ that’s fine too,” she mused. “Especially with women. We fluctuate all the time. We have good hair days. Good skin days and the other way around. And it’s OK to own that.”  

Priyanka went on to explain that she views opening up the conversation around beauty to be a positive step, though insisted she’d like to see diverse standards become normalised in the near future.

“The fact that we’re having conversations about it is a step forward than where it always has been. (But) beauty as diversity should not be a conversation. It should be normal,” the 37-year-old commented, before encouraging fans to be their authentic selves. “No matter what you look like, there is a beauty there and it’s the loss of someone else if they can’t see it.”

Priyanka Chopra only began to accept the changes in her body shape when she entered her early thirties.

The Bollywood icon and former Miss World may be one of the most beautiful women in the world, however, in a new interview for the August 2019 issue of U.S. Elle magazine, Priyanka confessed she has only recently begun to be at ease with the way she looks.

“It started happening to me in my early thirties; I got weirdly comfortable. I was like, ‘This is me – take it or leave it.’ I really wish I could’ve told my younger self, ‘Don’t be worried about your flaws,'” she commented.

And while Priyanka wants to look her best at every opportunity, but that doesn’t mean she thinks she can magically make herself look 15 years younger.

“I won’t deny, I care about the vanity. I’m in the business and I want to look the best that I can, but that’s the key term: the best that I can. I’m not 21; I’m not going to try and look it! My body is changing, my body looks different,” the 36-year-old smiled.

Since winning Miss World in 2000, Priyanka has gone on to become one of Bollywood’s highest-paid figures and was the first Indian actress in TV history to lead a U.S. prime time network show – ABC’s thriller Quantico. She is also teaming with friend and fellow actress Mindy Kaling on an as-yet-untitled wedding comedy project.

But in spite of her hectic schedule, workaholic Priyanka is now working on how to balance her life.

“My head was completely in the game… For almost 15 years of my life, that was it,” she said.

It was after meeting husband Nick Jonas, and being welcomed into the Jonas family by her sisters-in-law – Danielle Jonas, who is married to Kevin, and Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, who recently wed Joe – that prompted the brunette beauty to alter her work/life balance.

“I’ve never had a sister, so it’s really nice to have Danielle and Sophie… Sophie is super talented, super funny and we have the most fun when we go out together. She’s incredible,” the Isn’t It Romantic star gushed.
