Trend Breaker: I don’t bother keeping up with fashion trends. I don’t subscribe to any fashion magazines, so I am blissfully unaware of what the latest trends are! I just buy clothes that look good on me and those that suit my body type and complexion.
At Home:My pajamas! Whenever I’m at home, I’m always in my pj’s.
Desi Girl: There is nothing quite dramatic and elegant as a sari. Though I have to admit, I always worry that some part of my sari is going to slip down!
Colour Mantra: You will find every color in my wardrobe except neons. I’m not much of a neon person. Mostly, I stick to basics and I love wearing white, black and shades of red.
Jewel Assets: I’m not much of a jewelry person. But a few years ago, when I was going through a difficult time in my life, a family friend gifted me a pendant from Israel. It symbolizes the hand of God. Ever since I started wearing that pendant, I’ve always felt protected, so I never take it off except while shooting.
Shopaholic syndrome: Of course I love shopping. What I don’t like is the guilt that follows!
Shopper’s Stop: London! I know it’s an expensive city, I know that shopping anywhere else is cheaper, but it’s just the greatest feeling to walk through the shopping district of London. Also, I’ve found that a lot of British brands like Karen Millen suit my body type, so I tend to shop a lot more when I’m in London.
Ms. Brand Conscious? If I see something I like, then I will buy it; it doesn’t matter if it’s branded or not. I’m a bit particular about brands only when it comes to jeans, bags and watches. That’s mostly because certain brands of denims suit my body type and with bags, you get a certain kind of lasting quality with brands that you just don’t get with street wear. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for! If you pay a pittance for something, chances are that the fabric won’t be of great quality and it won’t last beyond a couple of washes.
Designers I love: When it comes to Indian designers, I like Cue and Gauri & Nainaka for western wear. When it comes to Indian wear, it would have to be Sabyasachi. When I’m abroad, I shop everywhere! But when it comes to dresses, I prefer Maxmara and Karen Millen. All my jeans are from Armani or Seven for all mankind. And my shoes are from all over the place! And someday, I would love to wear an Ellie Saab creation, they are simply breathtaking.
DREAM DESIGNERS: I have a list of directors that I want to work with. Fashion is not so high on my list of priorities that I have a list of designers I wish to work with!
FASHION FAUX PAS: I don’t like dressing in a way that cries out for attention. I believe that less is more.
MOST INSPIRED: I admire Deepika’s sense of style, because she never looks uncomfortable in whatever she wears. She has a great body and a great stylist as well I’m sure!
LAST BUY: A pair of shoes from Prada ! I got them in Paris.
