Priyanka Chopra arrived in a lehenga by the Bombay designer Arpita Mehta while late-night hostess Lilly Singh threw on a sherwani style jacket.

Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Radhika Jones modeled a soft pink salwar kameez for the event, where she was seated right next to Priyanka.

As regards her own religious convictions Mindy wrote in her book Nothing Like I Imagined (Except for Sometimes) that she is ‘a kind of Hindu.’

She did note of her daughter Katherine, three: ‘Even if I don’t exactly care if my daughter is Hindu, I definitely don’t want her to be some other religion.’

Mindy joked: ‘So, I looked down at my sleeping eight-month-old baby and I whispered: “You will not be a member of the Hillsong Church!”‘

Along with her daughter Mindy also has a son called Spencer, one, and she has been fiercely private about her children, not even revealing the father in either case.

She recently explained that she does not show their faces on social media because she is waiting for them to reach the age when they can give her their permission.

‘I have no judgment for people in the public eye who share photos and videos of their children,’ she clarified to People magazine.

‘My sense is that [my kids] have no real consent right now to do that…. I feel like I might as well wait until they get old enough so they can tell me if they want to be part of my social media or not,’ Mindy shared. 

‘Sometimes it’s just a safety thing. I don’t want to be at the airport and have someone be like: “Spencer, Katherine,” and have them look to the people as though they know them or they’re friends. I think that could be really confusing as a kid.’

She added: ‘So that’s the reason I’m doing it, but it’s hard because they’re such a huge part of my life. And I’m like any parent where I’m proud of the things they do. I think they’re so cute, and of course, I want other people to see it!’
