Deepika Padukone Pulls A PeeCee In Her Latest Photoshoot! But Why Are They Up On Ladders? We Know!
Seems like glamorous magazine photoshoots are more than just about chic styling and expert hair dos and impeccable makeup. It also features a bit of hardware magic to nail that perfect shot. Sometimes these handy helpers are accessories, some times just a casually propped up chair and then sometimes, there are ladders. Which is what we saw in Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ recent Elle UK photoshoot.

Priyanka is the latest cover girl for Elle UK and the August publication looks like an ode to the effortless charm of the desi girl. The actress wore a number of big labels for the shoot…Richard Quinn, Emilia Wickstead and Marc Jacobs, to name a few.
For one of the shots, PeeCee is fabulously poised atop a staircase (ladder!?!) in a big and gorgeous Christopher John Rogers creation. The tulle evening blouse and ball skirt set was inspired by the bright rich hue of Hot Cheetos and we find that exceedingly amusing. Photographed by Marcin Kempsi, we can only imagine the anxiety amongst the shoot staff while Priyanka made her way up those stairs in that huge skirt! Kudos to her for managing to not tumble down this flight of stairs.
The fun concept shot seems to already have a fan in another A-list fashionista, Deepika Padukone. In a charming co-incidence the actress’s photoshoot for Tanishq Jewellery featured a similar shot, this time atop a simple wooden ladder. The back-to-back shots of the two divas posing up high got us thinking, what’s with the ladders? The answer is pretty simple and lies in their elaborate outfits. This particular technique is used when the model’s ensemble has a long train or the ends go way past their frame. In order to fit the whole outfit in the shot, the heightened steps can be used. On the red carpet, though, trains and long skirt are accommodated by constantly fidgeting stylists running around the stars just before a shot! These guys work like elves, inconspicuous but adjusting the stars’ clothes so they look perfect.
This particular magazine shoot from Priyanka has been one of our favourite features from her. She spoke about issues like sisterhood, relationships, love, money and the pros of having the people closest to her with her at all times. She revealed her vulnerable side to her, making PeeCee even more relatable than ever before!
On the work front, Priyanka has just wrapped up The Sky Is Pink. The actress does seem to be taking a long vacation right now, with Sophie Turner’s South of France wedding followed by an impromptu trip to Italy and the downtime seems to be agreeing with her!
