'Fashion is about trends'

Glamorous talk

'Fashion is about trends'
Singer-actor Sophie Choudry says while most Bollywood celebrities are aware of fashion trends, there are very few who actually have a personal style.

Sophie, however, feels that thanks to the various fashion portals and strict vigil at airports by shutterbugs, actors are now making an extra effort to look good and have even hired stylists to design their travel attires.

“Bollywood has absolutely become fashion conscious. When I moved here from London 10 years ago, people weren’t so aware of fashion and more importantly, style. Today it’s gone to the other extreme. Why would you need a stylist to dress you for a plane journey? Surely you can figure that out on your own,” Sophie said.

“But that’s the problem. Most people may be aware of fashion trends but they don’t have personal style. I’m glad, however, that thanks to various fashion blogs, people are making the effort to dress better! I will never be able to get on board with Mumbai’s
Jhalla style.”

Sophie’s choice of outfits for appearances and red carpet events has landed her in best dressed lists and the 34-year-old says it is because she chooses outfits which are an extension of her personality.

“Fashion is all about trends, what one wears in terms of clothing, accessories and more. But for me, fashion is also a form of expression. What I wear, reflects my mood, my feelings. In that way, fashion is an extension of your personality.”

The singer says she can’t live without denims and white T-shirts. Also, instead of a little black dress, she prefers a red dress.

“I’m a complete denim girl. My cupboard is full of all the styles and colours and white shirts and T-shirts that fit perfectly. I like nude stilettos because the legs look so much longer and slimmer. An LBD is essential but I would prefer a Little Red Dress instead. It’s more glamorous and more memorable. And last but not the least, a gorgeous black handbag is what I like to have. It elevates any look.”
