The gorgeous Chitrangda Singh is the chosen star for the Myntra Star N Style campaign for the months of November and December. Over the next two months, we hope to bring to you vignettes from our interaction with the star, that would reveal her personal style, top picks from her wardrobe, memorable fashion moments and of course style tips from Chitrangda herself for all you lovely people.
Chitrangda is already in love with Myntra. “It’s a great portal. There’s a lot of freedom to shop and you can also return if you don’t like something. So it’s pretty easy. I really like that concept. It’s a great facility. There are so many brands to choose from.”
I met the Desi Boyz actress sans make up when at an Andheri studio for our shoot that was being styled by noted stylist Aki Narula. And I have to admit a tad reluctantly albeit that I caught myself gaping at her flawless olive skin and sparkling, deep eyes. Everyone transforms with make up, but here’s an actress who looks as good even without it!
The other thing that really left me impressed was the fact that Chitrangda is really in sync with fashion. She came across as someone who follows fashion and enjoys it, yet isn’t really someone who’s a slave to trends and labels. That’s our favourite attitude to fashion and CS has it.
Here Chitrangda chats with me about, what else, but that fickle mistress called fashion. Enjoy!
MY PERSONAL STYLE: It’s definitely not something that changes with fashion. I don’t follow fashion intensely. I keep things basic, structured and like clean lines. I don’t go for too much of bling. I’m not very experimental, maybe a bit with hair and make up, but my personal wardrobe remains simple. I like effortless dressing.
MY FAVOURITE FASHION DECADES: I love the kind of stuff they used to wear in the 60s and 70s and it’s great that all of that is coming back now. I really like that old time charm. I also like the 80s, what Madonna wore. The padded shoulders, the neons are all coming back.
MY FAVOURITE LOOK FROM MY FILMS: I like my look in the item song Kaafirana in Joker. It’s something I had never done before. I have mostly done the urban , modern woman look. The whole kajal and hair in the song is something I quite like.
KEY PIECES IN MY WARDROBE:
Blazer jackets; you can put it on a pair of jeans or anything else you’re wearing and it really dresses you up. I have them in monotones like black, blue, pinks and whites, sequined and I usually wear them with a pair of red or gold heels. It really dresses you up.
White shirt. I have plenty of them. A white shirt on jeans is a timeless look.
MY FAVOURITE CELLULOID CHARACTER: One of the most stylish celluloid character was Miranda Priestly (played by Meryl Streep) in The Devil Wears Prada. But the most fashionable one was Elvira Hancock (Michelle Pfeiffer) in Scarface. She was amazing, elegant, understated and wore her confidence. She looked beautiful.
Stay tuned for more from the dusky damsel in the coming weeks.
