Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan says she doesn’t believe in trends and likes to go casual as “couture is not up her alley” and never goes out of her way to style herself in a couture gown. The Good Newwz actress in a candid chat reveals a lot more about her fashion priorities and shares fashion hacks.
I think fashion is always about being comfortable in your own skin rather than trying to follow trends or follow in somebody else’s footsteps. I think the whole idea is that to be so comfortable that you look confident especially being a woman one should be comfortable and feel confident.
What do you like to wear on a very ordinary day?
Just the way I am. I’m always in jeans and boots and a sweater or sweatshirt, very casual. Couture is not up my alley. I obviously do it as part of my job. But I don’t go out of my way to style myself in a couture gown.
Have you ever stolen anything from your sister’s or mother’s wardrobe?
Well, from my sister’s — not because we’ve never really been the same size. She’s quite tiny and I am rather big-built. So sharing jeans and stretching them out was never an option. And my mum, yeah! My mum always has lovely jewellery pieces which I want to steal from her.
The most precious thing that you own?
I never throw my jeans. I have kept my jeans forever. So each piece of jeans, denim that I own, it is something that I never throw away.
Please share some fashion hacks.
As I said, I don’t believe in like a typical kind of fashion. I always want to believe in things that I feel I will look good in. It could be even a simple black dress, which I think every girl should have in their wardrobe.
The most fashionable person you know?
Well, it will be my sister.
A fashion trend that you wish to go away this year?
I don’t know. Trends are something that you have to choose to follow if you believe in them. I don’t believe in trends.
A fashion trend that you think will never fade?
