We caught up with the fashionista, who shared some of her wardrobe secrets…

Describe your personal style I think it depends on my mood.
Some days I love the classic vintage style, while on other days something more urban and street.

How has your style evolved?
I would say it has got a lot more refined. I have a few staple pieces now that I almost always wear. I believe the fit of a piece of clothing is more important than anything else.

What's your favourite brand/designer?
From Desi designers, I love Manish Malhotra. I think the way he makes a woman look with his clothing is so beautiful. Western Designers - oh gosh so many! I love Prabal Gurung, Dolce Gabbana, Michael Costello, Roberto Cavalli, Dior. Basically. I’m a sucker for gorgeous dresses!

Which Bollywood and Hollywood star inspires you most in the fashion sense?
Audrey Hepburn definitely. I think she’s an icon and her style was effortless.


 

India or Netherlands?
India for the food! Haha!

Your favourite item from your wardrobe?
My high-waisted jeans.

How long does it take you to get ready?
Normal days - 20 mins. If it’s for a night out, probably an hour.


 

What or who is your inspiration?
My mum. She inspires in literally every aspect of life.

What clothing/accessory/makeup can you not live without?
BB cream and mascara.


 

How organised is your wardrobe?
It’s really not. I’m a really clean and organised person with everything else in my life except my closet. Haha - It’s a total mess!

Do you prefer Desi or Western wear?
On a day to day basis – Western. It’s just easier to move around in.

What’s your must have Desi accessory?
A beautiful floral scarf.

High street or designer?
Both

What's on your wishlist?
Burberry Trench Coat.

What is your pet hate when it comes to shopping?
Not having the thing I love in my size. This seems to happen too often!

Fashion nightmare?
Nip Slip!

What statement does your style say about you?
‘She never looked nice, she looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something’.

How does your fashion reflect your personality?
I think it shows how I can be classy, but not afraid to let my hair down and be carefree too.

If you could be anything in the world, what would that be?
I wouldn’t change a thing. I feel very blessed.

Tell us something no one else knows about you...
I have 3 tattoos. Does everyone already know this?!


 

What would be your fashion advice to fellow fashionistas?
Stay true to yourself. Confidence is the best accessory.
