She may have worn a ghargra choli in "Traffic Signal", but in real life, Neetu Chandra is a complete brand freak. She shares her style statement with us.
Q: What is your definition of fashion?
A: I think fashion is all about being comfortable, wearing clothes that suits your body. Fashion is about how you carry yourself. One should not follow style blindly.
Q: Where do you mostly shop from?
A: I have my designers who take care of that. Anita Dongre, Rajesh and Anirban are the people behind my style. They know exactly what I am comfortable wearing and what suits my body. They are classy and different from the rest.
Q: Do you prefer any specific brands?
A: Yes, I am an absolute brand baby and prefer different brands for different outfits.
Q: Your gym wear is…
A: T-shirts, tracks and Reebok shoes. Infact, the tracks and t-shirts I use while working out are also Reebok. At times, people have actually asked me if I am endorsing Reebok.
Q. Do you go for the formal look at times?
A: I don’t like wearing formals much, I wear them only when needed. When I do, I prefer Zara, Chanel and Christian Dior.
Q. What’s your casual look?
A: A nice fitting pair of blue jeans and a plain T-shirt. I don’t like stripes. For me, jeans have to be Levis and I prefer Forever 21.
Q: What do you prefer for evening wear?
A: My casual look doubles as my evening wear.
Q: What about night wear?
A: I wear loose outfits at night. They are more comfortable. Satin pajamas, loose T- shirts and spaghettis. I even wear shorts.
Q: Do you adorn yourself with accessories?
A: I am not much of a necklace girl. I do wear small earrings, bracelets and neck-pieces as long as it goes with my dress.
Q: Which brand do you favour for footwear?
A: Chanel, Aldo, and many Indian brands. The same goes for my handbags.
Q: What are the cosmetics that you use?
A: My skin is sensitive so I mostly use Mac products. They are good. Even Loreal lip-glosses are good. I use Origin body lotions and Lan com make-up remover.
Q: Which is the latest perfume that you bought?
A: I don’t remember, but my favourites are Happy by Clinique, Davidoff Cool Water and Issey Miyake’s basic fragrance.
Q: Brands you prefer for lingerie?
A: Hmm, that’s a secret and I don’t want any one else to know about it.
Q: What colours do you think are musts in any wardrobe?
A: I am a colourful person. So I like mostly all colours, but black, lemon, white, pink, and beige are favourites.
