While speaking at a conference Saturday before the Bollywood diva sizzled on the ramp in a Neeta Lulla outfit on the first day of Blenders Pride Fashion Tour 2011, she said that no extravagant fashion statement should be made compromising comfort.
“Even the best outfit has to be comfortable,” she said.
Priyanka urged the youth of the country to create their own style statement by finding what suits them best.
“Girls today need to wear something that suits them and not just follow the stars. You need to find what looks nice on you,” remarked Priyanka.
Priyanka, who features as an autistic girl in Anurag Basu’s upcoming film Barfee, clarified that she loves the challenge of playing different characters and she is open to the idea of dressing to the needs of the character even if the glam quotient is not up to the mark.
“I want to dress up according to the script because you have to become the characters. It’s not that you have to look ultra-glamorous always,” she said.
The former Miss World praised Neeta Lulla for her work and lauded her for her contributions to celluloid fashion.
Priyanka remarked, “I think she is one of the most talented designers in our country. She is one of the few who understands cinema.”
Upon query Priyanka revealed that she is going to don two different looks for her two upcoming movies- Don2 and Agneepath.
“In Don 2 my look would be very stylish and In Agneepath I will sport a very raw rustic Maharashtra brand,” she said.
Priyanka stated that she is very enthusiastic about her pop album and she has been taking vocal lessons for that.
“It is my album but there will be collaborations. It’s going to be in English and it’s going to be a pop album,” remarked Priyanka.
