Priyanka, who recently attained 40 million followers on Instagram, was spotted leaving her New York apartment yesterday, luggage in tow, setting out to attend the Cote d'Azur festival for the first time ever. Her airport look struck the perfect balance of laidback yet effortlessly stylish: high-wasited pinstripe trousers, a Supreme T-shirt and long blazer.
