Guess girl Priyanka Chopra has been juggling a crazy, cross-continental schedule. After releasing the third single from her forthcoming album last week, the Indian actress stunned on the red carpet, in Prabal Gurung and Monique Lhuillier, and then dazzled onstage at the International Indian Film Academy awards (a.k.a. Bollywood’s Oscars) in Tampa on April 26. She then premiered the music video for her new single, “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City on April 28. And somehow the former Miss World has managed to look perfectly put together the whole time. (What’s her secret? “Lots of water, but more than anything, I try and get naps whenever I can,” Chopra revealed to InStyle.com.)
So we weren’t surprised to learn that Chopra was very involved in the choices, inspiration boards, and all of the looks involved in the “I Can’t Make You Love Me” video. Stylist Sophia Banks gave InStyle the exclusive details on the fashions featured in the video.
“She wanted it to look natural for a lot of the looks in the house and then have some more dressed-up looks,” Banks said.
Those dressed-up looks include a cream-colored wrap from Versace’s new Meskita line and a vintage Alexander McQueen dress in the video’s swimming pool scene. (“We made a double for the pool so that the original did not go in,” said Banks.) As for actor Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Chopra’s love interest, he wears Armani throughout the video—a choice that Banks said was made by Chopra as well.
The simple and elegant looks, such as the IRO top and J brand shorts Chopra is sporting (pictured above), all went into creating a “clean and light feeling” for the video, said Banks. “There was a lot of white on purpose. We felt it represented the mood of being in love. We all loved the stripped-down look, which matched with the stripped down raw emotion of the video as well.”
We’re definitely feeling the love for the track. Check out the video now to see all the looks on Chopra and Ventimiglia.
