Nina Manuel opted out of the India Fashion Week at New Delhi, we find out why and more.

How do you feel being absent on Delhi ramp this year?
I am not regretting it at all. In fact, I have another job to do that is anchoring. This is keeping me busy.

I did the Mumbai Fashion Week and can always be on the Delhi ramp later this year.

Style to you is…
Cool, trendy and ready to wear. I am completely comfortable with my body and am confident of carrying myself off well.

Hottest ramp model
Upen Patel, Neha Kapur and myself!

On the recent 'Wardrobe malfunctions'...
Whatever happened to Carol and Gauhar was just bad luck. It could happen to anyone for matter. One shouldn’t create such hype about it.

Any slip-ups on ramp/Embarrassing situation?
I tripped on the runway last year when I was walking the ramp in New Delhi for the fashion week. But I managed to carry it off well.

Favourite designers...
Roberto Cavalli, Shahab Durazi, Shantanu-Nikhil, Malini Ramani, Tarun Tahiliani.

Are you brand conscious?
Comfort is utmost important to me. I don’t have a fetish for brands. I even shop from the flea markets abroad which has some really cool stuff that even the designers don’t keep.

Exposure on ramp
I believe that if you have a great body and can carry off any outfit, well then you should flaunt it. I am comfortable with body exposure if it's for work.

How do you keep fit?
I drink a liter of water when I wake up. This flushes out the toxins. I eat light and catch up on sleep when possible.
