Major excitement coming your way to banish those Monday blues. Alright…hold your breath, guys! Genelia Deshmukh is the new face of Myntra’s Star n Style.
Drum rolls. Whistle. Applause.
She’s cute as a button and effortlessly stylish. And hence our favourite.
Here’s a video of my interview with Mrs Deshmukh (hard to believe she’s married!).
You could also read excerpts from the interview below.
My favourite Spring colour: I’m quite a colour person. I enjoy colour. Initially I used to have a problem with yellow, but now I’m okay with it.
Wardrobe must haves: A pair of jeans, a white shirt and shoes, shoes and more shoes. They are my poison. More heels than flats. I enjoy wearing flats on a daily basis, but if I am going out, it has to be heels.
Favourite going out attire: I experiment with a lot of attires. I like dresses, pants, enjoy Indian attires.
Favourite look from films: The Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na look became really popular. The tic tac clips I wore through the film became every college girl’s must have. When I was shooting for the film, I was like, “Do I have to wear these?” But post that film, my hair stylist told me everyone was asking for that style.
Style persona: I think I have days when I am a total Aditi (from Jaane Tu) and days when I am Maya from Force with kohl eyes and having that slight Indo Western touch. I think I am a mix of a lot of things and just go with the flow. There are moments when I am laid back and moments when I want to be proper, with my hair blow dried etc. There are times when I like doing the whole grunge, edgy thing and be experimental some times.
Fashion icons: It varies. I don’t think there’s one particular person. I enjoy having the stylists’s opinion on things that I haven’t tried and colours I haven’t experimented with. I like someone putting a look together.
Accessories I love: I used to be a full on bangles person. I used to like wearing a lot of bangles as a trademark. That was a phase and I have grown out of it. Now I like scarves, big bags. I like accessories.
Fashion mistakes: Mistakes happen. That’s why pencils have erasers. I honestly don’t regret anything.
Wild fashion phase: I have never really had a wild fashion phase. But I think what I have done is from having really long hair, I chopped it down to my ears. I enjoyed it. I got lots of compliments for my short hair.
Fashion advise: Just do what you enjoy the most. There’s nothing right or wrong. It’s just a personality that comes across.
