Yami Gautam’s spacious apartment in Andheri is simple and basic — a reflection of her own style and personality. When it comes to style, Yami admits she’s gone from being a nerdy Chandigarh girl to an elegant Bollywood diva. Her shoe fetish is of epic proportions; you’ll find more shoes than clothes in her closet. Also, she’s quite the reader, as is evident by the massive book-shelf.



What style means to you: I would hear actresses say that it’s about comfort and being yourself. I understood it after becoming one myself. It’s clichéd but true. I’ve also been a part of the race where you try hard to get the best designers for award functions, events, etc. But when I did a self-assessment, I realised that it’s important to understand your body type and see what looks great on you.

Shoe crazy: If I could have had my way, I would’ve chopped off every possible heel from every shoe. I used to hate stilettoes. It took me a lot of time to understand how to walk in them and look graceful. And eventually you realise their importance. I have every basic colour in shoes. Shoes are important to me because I don’t do much with my clothes. http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2015/7/48hrs22.jpg

Bag person: You will always see big, chunky bags around me. I have always been fond of bags. Bags are extremely essential because I keep my books in them.
Best cities to shop in: Hong Kong and Bangkok because I have tiny feet. I’m ridiculed by every stylist because they have to almost go to kids section to look for shoes; I don’t get my sizes here. So when I go to South East Asia for work, I shop for shoes.

Go-to outfits: Dresses. There’s something very ‘easy’ about them. I especially like floral prints. I’m not a big fan of glitter or anything with too much sequins on it. I also love bright colours; you can effortlessly pair them with pumps, a hand bag and a nice watch.

Go-to designers: I really like the way Masaba revolutionised the saree. I like how Sabyasachi got the Indian look back. Aki Narula is good with contemporary styling. Pankaj and Nidhi are great with their colour palette.

Fashion faux pas: It was for an awards show down south. It was my first ever year and I wore this beautiful off-shoulder red gown. But I wore it with a pair of chunky, block heels because I came straight after my shoot and was really exhausted. I assumed that since the gown was long, no one would notice. But everyone figured it out went, ‘How could you do this?’ Trust me, I received messages from people as if I had done something illegal. It was quite bad; I never forget it.

Style icons: I love crop tops and love the way Taylor Swift teams them. Her style is relaxed; I can relate to it. I also like Tyra Banks. It’s not about the clothes, it’s about her confidence.
