Sometimes she dazzles in a funky dress and other times she goes classy in a feminine gown. Yet this diva makes great style statements on the red carpet almost every time. She sure does have style and no one can challenge it! In this edition of Celebrity Spotlight, Borrow It Bindaas features the striking actress, Neha Dhupia!
Hard to believe but Neha doesn’t have a stylist to dress her at red carpet events or when she has to make public appearances! Her mother and friend, Chola tell her what works and what doesn’t!
Her favorite international designers are Paco Rabanne and Stella McCartney. She likes Victoria Beckham for the simple and clean cuts and Diane von Furstenberg because of the feminine clothes. Her favorite Indian designers include Masaba, Gaurav Gupta, Anamika Khanna, Sabyasachi Muckherjee, and Rohit Bal.
We love how innovative Neha is when it comes to mixing and matching! For example her lehenga look-skirt with a blazer! Or that one time when she wore a red Victoria Beckham dress and wore it again with an embellished jacked and Indian jewelry.
Neha’s must have accessories are shoes and sunglasses. She loves shoes from slippers to knee-length boots! She once also revealed that she couldn’t do without a watch! “I just can’t do without a big dial watch. Watches are my weakness. I love to hoard as many watches I can. And I feel a big dial black or white or chrome watch can instantly add oomph to a dull and simple look.” We can’t agree more with Neha’s statement!
Her fashion icons include Hollywood diva Audrey Hepburn and Bollywood diva Sonam Kapoor. “I love Audrey Hepburn for her classic style and elegance. And in India it is Sonam Kapoor as she carries herself very well be it Indian wear or western vintage outfits that she accessories it with a quirk. I feel that I’m in a happy space now and I love it this way”.
You will tend to see Neha in white, black, and gray a lot. Those tend to be her favorite colors!
Neha also has plans to venture into fashion e-commerce, as she herself is an online shopping addict. She says, “I myself shop for shoes and clothes all the time from various sites and if I can get to see what the dress I wish to buy will look like on me in as good as a 3D avatar. What more can I ask for? It’s a boon for all of us e-shoppers.”
Since Neha is known to be one of the better dressed women in Bollywood and is usually spotted in desirable creations by top designers. She also has a large number of followers on Twitter, and these two factors were instrumental in Neha being chosen for Twitter face for Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week this past season!
She loves to wear what she feels comfortable in, yet she’s very fashionable. However she always looks different and takes risks while always getting it right!
