Priyanka Chopra received a special honour for her work as a UNICEF ambassador from Variety on Friday afternoon (October 13) at the annual ‘Power Of Women’ luncheon, which was held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The 35-year-old actress was joined by some of the most philanthropic women of Hollywood, including Kelly Clarkson (QX Super School), Patty Jenkins (Anti-Recidivism Coalition), Michelle Pfeiffer (Environmental Working Group), and Octavia Spencer (City Year).
Priyanka looked classy in a Michael Kors monochromatic midi dress featuring a low-cut neckline and split down the middle of the skirt. She teamed the look with a pair of black peep-toed Louboutins.

While speaking at the Luncheon, Pee Cee shared an incident from her struggling days. She said, ‘’Early in my career, when I was 18 or 19, a director told me that if I wouldn’t work on ridiculous terms or low salary, then he would replace me. Because girls are replaceable in an entertainment business. That was a memorable one, made me decide to make myself irreplaceable .’’
