What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion to me means- understanding your body type, recognizing the style that would best suit your body and having the proper knack of wearing the latest trend which is best suited to your body.
Which is the one dress that can never go out of fashion?
Saris. It adorned the ladies ages ago and it can still be worn stylishly today.
Your favorite designer
My favorite Indian designer is Manish Malhotra. Among the international designers I like Roberto Cavalli, Gucci and Versace.
Your Favorite perfume
Favorite line of bags and shoes
Do you prefer make-up or being without it?
I prefer being with natural make-up.
Which brand of make-up do you usually favor?
Lancome,Sheseido,Elizabeth Arden and M.A.C.
Your favorite fashion destination?
Designer label or platform ka maal?
Designer Label. Because I feel heavy expenditure on designer brands is also an investment.
What do you do on a bad hair day?
I just apply some Loreal gel and pull it back in a pony tail.
The accessories that you usually prefer…
I'm trying to develop a sense of accessories as I really go blank. For now it's just bracelets and my Bvlgari watch.
Do you feel the electronic gadgets we carry reflect our style statement?
Yes. I feel if one can afford it, it's definitely no big deal to spend on the latest gadgets and accessories that go along with it. Especially when it comes to cellphones, its always good to keep up with the trend as that means better utility.
Who do you feel is the most influential trendsetter at present?
I don't know as I'm a person who studies fashion as a whole rather than looking out for one single person who is fashionable.
Who is your style icon?
Like I said, I study fashion and then take on whatever best suits me. I can never look up to one person as a style icon. If I want to wear something feminine I'd look out to what Julia Roberts wears but if its something more bold then I'd look ourtfor Paris Hilton or Sharon Stone. I really can't depend on one single person's style.
The hottest color this season…
Yellow, Purple and Magenta.
