Not just anyone becomes a Guess Girl.

Claudia Schiffer, Anna Nicole Smith, Drew Barrymore, Kate Upton, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Paris Hilton are just a few of the world's most beautiful women who have been the face and body of the famous fashion company.

Now we can add Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra to the list.

E! News can exclusively reveal that Chopra, a former Miss World and now an actress and singer, will star in Guess' upcoming holiday campaign. The black and white ads, shot by rocker photographer Bryan Adams, feature Priyanka posing in a Mediterranean villa.


Guess president Paul Marciano signed Chopra after just one meeting. He told her she reminded him of Sophia Loren.

"I'm pretty much quintessential Guess—feminine, the big hair, the big eyes, the doe-eyed look," Chopra told me in an exclusive interview at the Guess studios in downtown L.A., adding, "I really do believe that women should always be feminine and beautiful and not skinny, but rounded."


Chopra's mom launched her daughter's career in 2000 after she secretly entered her into the Miss India competition when she was just 17. Since then, she has become one of Bollywood's most recognizable stars. In the U.S., her single, "In My City" featuring will.i.am, debuted as the theme song for the NFL Network's Thursday Night Football. Her debut English language album will be released later this year.

"I didn't know anything about show business," Chopra said. "I was an academic. I wanted to be aeronautical engineer, build planes, work at NASA…I wouldn't go to the moon, I'd make the space shuttles."
