Wardrobe peek
All my Indian clothes which are from my grandmother. I have never owned or seen better fabrics in my life. There are salwaar kameezes in satin, long dupattas in gota work et al. A lot of her clothes were made in Pakistan.

Heirloom treasures
My grandmother’s emerald and diamond studded gold watch.

An experiment that you’ve nailed
The choker today, and the ear vcuff back in the day.

Sartorial thumb rule
When in doubt, just smell good and smile.

Current lust list
Gucci’s latest Dionysus bags with tthe serpent embroidery.

On a day around town
Sneakers and sweatshirts or Jaipuri kurtas with palazzo pants and ballerinas.

Looking forward to wearing
The whole of Alessandro Michele’s collection for Gucci.

A trend you wish worked for you
Ripped shorts! I love how Rihanna carries them; I wish I had the body to pull it off.

Fragrance you are addicted to
Tom Ford’s Black Orchid.

Most fashionable moment
When I was at my fittest….

Secret to great hair
Eat a lot of greens.

Beauty hacks
I swear by aloe vera; and coconut oil, it does wonders for your hair.

Next, Meghna Bhalla.
