Actor Farah Khan is not considered to be a conventional style icon. And that is exactly why the film-maker was more than thrilled to be on the jury of HT Most Stylish awards. After being on the heavier size for many years, the actor in the recent past has lost the extra pounds and is looking younger and fitter. But Farah says that, “I still am a plus size (laughs). Honestly, when I was asked to be on the jury of HT Most Stylish awards, I jumped at it. HT is extremely credible and though I am not your typical style icon, I was thrilled to be on the jury. I am a plus size woman with three kids. HT is setting a good example by having unconventional names that don’t fit the cookie cutter mould of being stylish to be on their jury. It is a great initiative. I usually don’t like to be on the jury of film awards but I made an exception for this one,” she says.
Farah’s style sense too, has evolved over the years but for her “comfort will always be key”. “I love fashion and clothes. My movies and songs too are very stylish. My personal sense of style is bohemian and eclectic. I also think it is very important to dress as per the occasion. You can’t be a fashion victim or a brand clotheshorse,” Farah says. Talking about what she expects from a winner, Farah says ‘originality’ is the only criteria. “I am glad that the perception of style has changed over the years. I like people who have fun on the red carpet and don’t take themselves seriously. Kangana Ranaut dresses really well. She is a small town girl but she has an innate sense of style that is original. I am most impressed by individuality.”
