Editor’s Note: Priyanka Chopra made us really proud today. And in rush to break the story, we made an error. We misprinted ‘Guess’ as ‘Gucci’. It has been removed, and necessary corrections have been made. We are very sorry! Dear ‘Guess’, we even apologize to you, for giving credit to ‘Gucci’ for all the money you spent!
