Priyanka Chopra: 'I'm Proud Of Being The First Brown Face Of Guess'


Priyanka Chopra has accomplished a lot in her life, and she's only 31 years old.

Not only does the actress have a successful Bollywood and music career which has blessed her with numerous awards but she is actively involved in charities which support women's issues and anti-addiction programs.

The former beauty queen has come a long way since winning the Miss World title in 2000; last year, the "Planes" star made history when she became the first Indian actress to land a GUESS campaign.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard this week, the "Exotic" singer spoke candidly about her career highlight:

"There have been so many moments throughout my career that I have been proud of – three recent highlights are: being the first brown face of the GUESS? brand, my song Exotic featuring Pitbull going triple platinum in India, an dall of the accolades I received for playing the part of an autistic child in the film Barfi."

The GUESS job is no small feat; previous models include women of the blond hair-and-blue eyes variety including Claudia Schiffer, Anna Nicole Smith and Kate Upton.

"For a global fashion brand, for them to move their campaign into a global space, for me it's an honour," Priyanka told Women's Wear Daily when the announcement was made.

Despite her glamorous lifestyle, the Golden Globes stunner says she is most comfortable off the red carpet in jeans and a t-shirt but can't live without her lipstick.

Sounds like our kind of gal!
