Constantly testing the limits of her versatility, Kangana Ranaut who has never made a fashion faux-pas, effortlessly transforms her looks from traditionally Indian to chic conservative to runway diva.
Ask the actress about her favourite designers and she is quick to reply, "It's not the designer but the design you fall in love with. With any fashion sense, you must know that looking beautiful is looking graceful. In terms of clothes I like Louis Vuitton, Bottega, Anna Sui, Moschino...the list is endless. From India I'm partial to Sabyasachi and Reza.
A favourites list would be difficult. But I'm not somebody who believes in only wearing brands. Even if I wear a designer outfit, it is often something that a girl can look at and get her tailor to make." The 'Gangster' famed actress will be next seen in 'I Love New Year' opposite Sunny Deol.
While the actress's sartorial choices have several gung-ho on the social media front, sporting the biggest names in fashion with elan, Kangana who loves to experiment is also a favourite with designers on home turf who rave about her sense of style.
Said a source, "Young girls in their prime look upto Kangana as a huge fashion icon because she dares to be different and has an individual sense of style that reflects the sensibilities of the modern-age woman...
While several of her contemporaries are impeccably dressed Kangana sports designs that girl's today can sport boldly without inhibitions or the need to walk the red carpet and that's what makes her so relatable".
Costume designer Rushi Sharma who worked with the actress on her look in 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai', all praise for her said, "Kangna knew exactly how she wanted to look and guided us. Her interest in fashion is tremendous and the best part is that she does a lot of the research for the roles that she takes up which makes our job simpler."
Make-up artist Albert Chettiar further said, "It was great to see an actor so professional. She has directions ready for hair styling too. She had notes with her and constantly told us what she wanted. She is the de facto stylist and make-up person for her films."
