While her attires depend a lot on her mood, actor Ileana D’Cruz is very particular about one thing – wearing the right size without trying to fit in something that is not meant for your body type. The 27-year-old, who was a showstopper for designer Anushree Reddy on Day 4 of the Lakme Fashion Week, talks to us about her personal style and what’s a complete no-no for her.
*What’s your personal style statement?
I wear what I feel like wearing on a particular day. I don’t care about what people would think. So, what I wear depends a lot on my mood - today it might be sweatpants with a T-shirt and tomorrow I might feel like wearing a gorgeous gown.
*What are you more comfortable in – Indian or western wear?
I’m a beach bum, so I’m more comfortable in western wear. Depending on how fit I am, I would rather pull up a pair of shorts or track pants. However, I do like wearing Indian outfits off and on. It’s got a beautiful charm to it which western outfits don’t offer. The elegance of a sari or the flirtiness of a lehenga is matchless.
*What is your style statement of the season?
I love wearing very simple colours. So, bright a red lip colour with a crisp white shirt is what’s my current favourite.
*What is a big fashion no-no for you?
Something unfitted and crass. It’s important to always wear your size because a lot of people try fitting into smaller sizes even if they don’t fit into it properly.
*Your fashion suggestions?
Workout like crazy, even after you feel you’ve gotten fit. As far as clothes are concerned, for the day wear something chic a good pair of jeans, crop and open hair with a bright lip colour. For an evening, a nice pair of high-waisted trousers and a nice blouse looks great.
