The bizarre outfit for Diana, her pet chihuahua, features a red, white and grey quilted jacket topped off with a red boxing glove to keep the animal’s head warm.
Indian-born Chopra, 36, a former Miss World who moved from Bollywood to Hollywood and now lives in Los Angeles, posted the designer creation on Instagram claiming LA is ‘too cold’ for her furry friend.
The actress and singer, who starred in the 2017 movie Baywatch, recently returned from a Caribbean honeymoon with husband Nick Jonas, 26, the US pop star.
She asked her personal stylist, Mimi Cutrell, to design the outfit which was then made by Poldo Dog Couture, the pet boutique arm of luxury design brand Moncler.
Chopra, posting on behalf of Diana, wrote: “LA is too cold! Thank you @moncler for my jacket!”
Chopra was crowned Miss World in 2000 after which she launched a singing and acting career, first in Bollywood before moving to LA where she has starred in Baywatch and, last year, the movie, A Kid Like Jake.
She has been named in the Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women list in both 2017 and 2018.
She is soon to be the sister-in-law of television star Sophie Turner, as her husband Nick is the brother of Sophie’s fiance Joe.
She made headlines this week when she was photographed out on the town in Los Angeles with her future sister-in-law, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, who is engaged to Nick’s brother Joe.
The two actresses were all smiles as they were spotted together entering a popular restaurant in West Hollywood without their partners.
