Ever since she shed the pounds and went from pleasantly plump to seriously hot, Parineeti Chopra has become something of a style diva, who enjoys talking fashion and flaunting some cool threads. One thing you will never spot her in though, are the long gypsy skirts that are quite the rage. The lass loathes them and would only wear them for a shoot if required. Otherwise, she loves slipping into shorter skirts, be it a knee-length skirt or even a mini – the ghagra skirt she will safely give the miss and a good idea that is too, considering she is not exactly Deepika Padukone in the height department!
Her fashion faves would be teaming a dress with sneakers, a trend that is seen with regularity everywhere these days. A fairly low-maintenance girl, Pari keeps her product shelf uncluttered with just shower gel and a moisturizing lotion occupying space. A firm believer in water-based products, she avoids using chemical-heavy goods as far as possible.
If she needs a confidence-boosting outfit, a bodycon dress is what she would reach out for. With her small waist and curvy hips, she believes her shape is right for this style which works well for her. If she needs a bit of style inspiration she looks no further than Kangana Ranaut and Anushka Sharma. Kangana’s daring fashion choices and Anushka’s easy everyday style find great favour with Parineeti, who has faced considerable flak for her fashion choices in the past.
Pari has indeed come a long way from her early days in the industry, when she couldn’t seem to get a single look right. With trademark candour, she admits that during her first two years in B-town every appearance of hers would turn into a huge regret. What’s worse is she wouldn’t feel good in what she was wearing and would know in advance that the criticism would pour in. That has changed vastly now. She takes extreme care about what she is wearing especially for her public appearances. And with her svelte shape, she is hitting all the highs on the style stakes!
Is she sitting pretty and smug now? No chance. She would give herself a miserly 1 on 10 style-wise, as she believes she still has a long way to go. The relief that she has gone from being featured on Worst Dressed to Best Dressed lists is palpable though and she admits that it means a lot to her as fashion was something she never understood to begin with.
Today she is in a position to help others struggling with fashion. The key, she shares, is to know yourself, your personality, your body and to choose clothes that complement it. Copying an outfit blindly is a no-no because it must go with your individual body type and your personality…Which means that if Katrina Kaif is seen in a hot bikini romancing Sidharth Malhotra in Baar Baar Dekho, you won’t be spotting Pari in a swimsuit any time soon! Far from being a prude, the Chopra gal shares that she will only wear a bikini once she has the right kind of body – she wants to look great in it and is hoping that will happen soon!
