How would you define your sense of style?
Simple, minimalistic but bold and differently chic

How much do you enjoy wearing jewellery?
I love to wear jewellery, but the primary parameter is the occasion, place and time of day.

What is your favourite piece?
My favourite pieces are a ‘maang tika’, ‘kamar bandh’ and chokers – I possess quite a few of each.

Would you rather be under-dressed or over-dressed at an occasion?
Any day, under-dressed – cannot go for an occasion looking like a Christmas tree, after all!

Which celebrity’s style do you try and emulate?

I have never tried to copy anyone in life for anything whatsoever – I feel, what you wear should be an extension of yourself, and should define the person you are – hence trying and aping someone would take away from me being me.

One quick fix that never goes wrong?
A really long pair of danglers can do wonders for anyone provided the neckline is reasonably low.
