Favourite fashion designers: I can name so many! I like Gagan Mishra, Payal Singhal, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Raw Mango, Shantanu Nikhil…

Fashion confession: I prefer well-fitted clothes. I am not such a brand conscious person. I am tall, and the problem with tall people is not all clothes fit well. There are only a few brands that have the perfect fitting. Hence, I love Mango and Zara.

Favourite brand in jeans: I possess so many jeans that I have lost count. I shop for jeans for no apparent reason. American Eagle and Zara are my favourite brands.

I look best in: Salwar kameez.

My personal stylist: Juhi Ali and Devki. For my hair treatment I go to my best friend’s mother Ratna aunty. I have also discovered Zeedo (Zinc and Doro) who are fabulous.

Make up tip: I like to keep it very minimal. My skin texture is fantastic as I pamper it a lot.

My tip on hair care: I use egg and aamla to nourish my hair.

Features I like to highlight when I do my make up: Eyebrows and eyelashes.

Favourite hair care brand: Sebamed for my daily hair wash. I end up washing my hair almost every day, since I sweat a lot after a workout. So, I use Olaplex to prevent my hair from becoming dry. I also like shampoos from L'Oréal and Juicy Chemistry.
