Flowy fabrics,comfy jumpsuits,carefree long dresses,a pastel palette of corals,lavenders,mints,peaches and greens,no-fuss accessories and strappy sandals summer is about easy,breezy fashion. Actors Bipasha Basu and Diana Penty got summer styles on the ramp for Chandigarh at a fashion show organised by clothing brand Vero Moda at JW Marriott on Wednesday. Adding to the style quotient was a perky performance by rapper Hard Kaur.
While Penty likes her wardrobe to have a cool feel with pop colours,Basu prefers her singlets and tights. Both agree that the one must- have for every girl is a fitted pair of denims and a white cotton shirt to go with it. I would throw in the all- time favourite black dress and a handbag to compliment all looks, says Penty. Basu,on the other hand,would rather have a short jumpsuit or a dress. I am a shorts girl, she says,standing tall in a fitted short dress and heels,in contrast to Pentys Grecian flowing robe.
Fashion just happened to me. I was always a bookworm. Now,I have a pretty fashionable mother and an excellent team of stylists working with me. Eventually,one develops a taste and sense of fashion, says Basu. It is your style statement,so when someone says Bipasha repeated her shoes,I say why not? They cost me a bomb and I will wear them 40 times. Critique me as much as you like,I am a thick-skinned high-street fashion girl, she says.
