Priyanka Chopra’s best gal pals went above and beyond to throw their dear friend a bridal shower for the ages on Sunday, Oct. 28. The fete, held at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Box Cafe in NYC, was extravagant and fun-filled, with plenty of A-list guests and tons of dancing.
“This was not a conventional shower, it was a nightclub in Tiffany,” Chopra told People. “There was so much dancing—like five hours of dancing. It was amazing!”
For the bridal shower, Chopra donned a strapless white Marchesa gown with a feather hem that looked perfectly regal on the Quantico star. And her decision to go with the designer’s dress—one that made headlines—was intentional, the actress told Women’s Wear Daily.
“Georgina’s a friend of mine, and she has been,” Chopra said of Georgina Chapman, the ex-wife of Harvey Weinstein whose brand suffered substantially following multiple charges of sexual assault against her husband. “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,” she continued. “And it made me feel like a princess. It was the right choice.”
At the bash, guests like Lupita Nyong’o rubbed shoulders with Chopra’s friends and family, and enjoyed, in addition to some serious dancing, plenty of good eats and drink, including a towering wedding-esque cake frosted white, with cream puffs used as decor.
Party favors for the bridal shower included goodie bags filled with monogrammed passport cases, mini cakes shaped like the iconic Tiffany box and champagne.

“Love, laughter and a room full of amazing ladies…and some special gentlemen (what a special surprise)!” she captioned a collection of photos on Instagram Monday (Kevin Jonas and Kevin Sr. arrived toward the tail end of the party to toast to Chopra). “Thank you so much @mubinarattonsey and @anjula_acharia for throwing me such a memorable bridal shower that broke all the rules! My amazing friends and family who made me feel so special and loved, thank you. And to top it off @tiffanyandco Perfect!”
Tiffany holds a special place in Chopra’s heart, and she told People that until she had a Tiffany engagement ring on her finger earlier this year, she still felt single, despite falling head over heels in love with Nick Jonas.
“I’ve always had a romantic fascination with Tiffany since I was a kid,” she said. “It’s just so chic and classy and timeless. So somewhere I’d mentioned it to Nick that I wanted my ring to be a Tiffany ring and I think he remembered, and hence the ring and the relationship with Tiffany. It does play a very special role.”
The couple is reportedly expected to marry in December before the new year, though no date has yet been publicly announced.
