He could easily be termed as the Salman Khan of small screen( strictly for his physical attributes of course). A fabulous physique, an innate dressing sense by his own admissions and an aptitude to be extraordinarily comfortable in his own skin, Vikas Manaktala comes across very much as the cool dude he projects himself to be. We catch up with this gorgeous former model who has wowed million with his Amardeep Huda act on Left Right Left and get his take on fashion and style.

What is fashion to you?

Being myself. For me it means being most comfortable and carrying yourself with panache no matter what you wear.

What is the most expensive outfit in yoru wardrobe:

I have quite a few things- Well, maybe a pair of shoes which cost me 22 grand.

What is more important to you: being comfortable, or being seen in the 'in' clothes?

It has to be comfortable, and then 'in' clothes are what you wear and carry it so well that it becomes the 'in' style of the season!

When did you start getting conscious about fashion?

Maybe since I was born (laughs). I have been very picky since childhood. I remember I have a photograph as a 4-5 year old where I am very nattily dresses in jacket and ankle length boots. I think I was born with a fashion sense.

Who would you say is most atrociously dressed celebrity person?

Can’t answer that, sorry. Can’t name any one person, but what I can say is that many fall into that category.

A bollywood star who you think is a Style Icon-

Among men- Hritik and Saif

Among women: Bipasha

What about television:
Sorry, in terms of dressing, no one on television impresss me.
No one?
No one. I have been a model and I have lived in and around fashion for years. There is no one who even comes close to being a style icon among the small screen stars.

One attire you never get tired of:

White T and jeans
If you had to go to a party right away, what would you wear?

Depends where I am going, but I would most certainly wear this amazing jacket I got that has just been been delivered.

What fashion mistake you would never make?

I would never wear loud clothes.

If you have to gift a dress to a lady friend, how would you choose?

Depends on the friend, if she is special, then a dress. But if it’s just a lady friend, then , as the most that I know are often dressed in westerns, so I would gift her a one piece suit ethnic wear. She whould also know how she looks in an ethnic wear.

Favourite Brand?

I am not really loyal to any one brand. I rather go for what fits me the best. For example I like - Shirts-they are amazing fit, shades, - few Ts, - jeans, is also another brand I like.
Anyone among the Indian designers who impress you?
Rohit Bal is brilliant! He has a way of designing. He is an absolute genius.

I also like Rajesh Pratap Singh and Varun Behl.

Any celebrity that you would like to design for?
It's my fantasy, but if I can, I would like to dress Monica Bellucci.

What would you design?

I would design ethnic wear: My first choice would be a beautiful shaped lehenga, cut to fit and with sequins, with a classically cut choli in wine colour, again with sequins.

So that was the very stylish Vikas Manaktala sharing fashion tips with all his IF fans. Keep checking this space for more on fashion and style.
